Child Birth Education / Antenatal Classes
Finding out you are pregnant is such a special and exciting time. There is so much information to read and learn over the next nine months and so many decisions to make; Where do I give birth? What stroller should I buy? Should I choose a Midwife or Obstetrician?
Jo is here to help support you and help you to find all the information that you need to make decisions that are a good fit for you and your partner. Our classes are set in a fun, relaxed environment, where all of your questions can be answered. Even the boys enjoy the classes!
Classes are currently running in North Lakes Brisbane, a central Brisbane location and South Brisbane classes are coming soon.
Antenatal classes are best completed about 25 plus weeks.
Classes run over 6 weeks on an evening night from 7-930pm
Weekend classes are available on request
After the class is finished, we will set you up with a mothers group which will become such an important support network once your baby has arrived. You will gain instant friends for your little ones.
