Norwich Courses

Please see our Home Page for our COVID-19 update and how we’ve responded to demand for in-person sessions.

Welcome to Norfolk’s Antenatal Hub! Congratulations on your pregnancy and thank you for considering About Birth & Babies for your antenatal education.

We recommend that you choose a course with an end date that is at least four weeks before your EDD (estimated due date) as you are full term from 37 weeks. The optimal time to finish your course is when you are 32-36 weeks but if you would like to finish a bit sooner or the dates suit you better then please select an earlier course.

In response to feedback from dozens of local parents-to-be, we’re now offering full face to face courses as well as blended courses (which are a mix of in-person and online sessions). If you would like to follow a blended course, dates labelled F2F will be held in-person, and those labelled Zoom will be online. If you join a blended course, we will focus on more of the practical topics when we meet in-person and more of the theory when you join from the comfort of your own home or wherever you may be! 

Our 16 hour face to face antenatal courses are competitively priced at £170 and our 16 hour blended face to face and online antenatal courses at £150. These prices are for both mum–to–be and birth partner to attend. 

Hypnobirthing essentials are included on all our courses, but if you would like to follow a full hypnobirthing course based on the KGHypnobirthing Programme, you can bolt on the additional sessions for £60. This includes all course materials.  

To book a place on any of our courses, please complete our online booking form or if you would like some help with selecting which course might suit you best, please contact us.

After you have booked, you will be sent a reservation letter and invoice.  We aim to respond to all bookings within 24 hours. Please be sure to check your spam⁄junk folder.
