Event Details

The Evening series consist of 7 sessions held onTuesday evenings for 7 weeks.  Each class runs for 2 hours, 7pm – 9pm and includes a supper break. First time parents-to-be, benefit enormously from these classes as there is plenty of time to interact and discuss a range of topics from labour and birth to breastfeeding and parenting.

This trial demonstrated significantly improved outcomes for women and babies.
