We run a 1 day comprehensive Antenatal Class that help prepare prospective parents for the arrival of their child (or children) in a relaxed and friendly environment. The class is given by an experienced, Cork-based, practising midwife.
Who is the class suitable for? The class is suitable for all prospective parents. It covers, pregnancy, late stage pregnancy, labour, delivery, birth and caring for your new baby.
It also covers the practical aspects and impact of having a baby.
When should I attend? It is recommended that you attend your complete one day course somewhere between 28 and 36 weeks of pregnancy.
What should I bring with me? 2 Pillows and your hospital chart as birth plan will be discussed.
What should I wear? Comfortable clothing; we will be on the floor for a short time doing relaxation exercises so a tracksuit or something like that is ideal.

- Preparing for Birth (Hospital Bag, Baby essentials)·
