Antenatal Classes

Labour and the birth of your child will be one of the most physically arduous events of your life and will give you the greatest prize of all, your baby. Going to antenatal classes helps you prepare for the labour and the birth, and for being a parent. It's also a great way to meet other new parents, and to share support and information with them.

Course available

Antenatal class package consists of 4 sessions - one session a week for a total of four classes in a month. Each session is held on Tuesday, from 6pm – 8pm, and is conducted by experienced trained registered nurses.
