The Yoga Mama antenatal course is run by experienced midwives, antenatal teachers and baby feeding specialists. The course is suitable for couples and most of the classes will be held in the evenings. It is advisable to book a course to start 8-10 weeks before your baby is due (possibly earlier if you are expecting twins). There are 5 (2½ hour) antenatal sessions, which are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 9pm, with a further postnatal session.

The courses offer practical information and support for pregnancy, all types of birth and early days with a new baby. There will be the opportunity to include any aspects of birth and early days with a baby the group are interested in as well as the following topics:

  • What to expect during pregnancy (including hormone changes)

  • Possible complications during birth
  • Caesarean birth

The aim of this course is to prepare and give confidence to couples for birth and parenting. It is also to enable them to have the best experience possible and create a local support group. The cost of this course of £295.00.
