MARCH - APRIL MIDWIFE-LED ANTENATAL COURSE (FOR MAY BIRTHS)
Starts Tuesday 17 March, 6:30 - 9pm
The Yoga Mama antenatal course is led by Ally Downey, a midwife with vast experience in antenatal care, delivery suites and postnatal care in both private and public settings. This 5-week course is aimed at couples living in the Putney and south-west London who are expecting their first child, as well as those with children who wish to take a refresher course. The courses are organised in small, friendly groups and are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 9pm.
It is advisable to book an antenatal 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, with a further postnatal session.
