Apply for a place on an antenatal course

Having a baby is an exciting time, full of new experiences and challenges. We run a free course of antenatal classes at our children's centres where you can learn about:

  • having a healthy baby
  • preparation for parenthood, birth and beyond
  • communicating with your bump and baby
  • changes in relationships
  • getting your baby off to the best possible start
  • how babies grow and develop

Each weekly session lasts two hours and the course runs for six weeks. You can take along your partner or a friend to support you. Apply for a place on the NHS website or contact your local children's centre.

The course - called Great Expectations - is run by our children's centres and the NHS.
