Having another baby and looking to refresh your knowledge? Antenatal refresher classes cover pregnancy, preparation for birth and early parenthood whilst recognising the challenges you may have faced previously. Our aim is for you to finish the course feeling calm, confident, and with a wealth of helpful, practical knowledge so that you feel fully empowered to make the best choices for you and your baby.
Our facilitators will provide the opportunity to reflect on your previous birth experience and consider the impact of introducing a new baby to your family. This may involve coping with sibling rivalry and a change in relationships within the family.
Refresher courses are 4-5 hours in length and usually held across one weekend day at our venue in Cringleford or Hethersett, Norwich. They are priced at £52-65 per couple depending on length.
The emphasis is on gaining knowledge and support but also having fun. Having facilitated antenatal classes in this area for many years, we know that couples also want to meet others having a baby at a similar time for long-term friendship and support. About Birth & Babies practitioners know the importance of this and are skilled in encouraging groups to form a close network. This is helped by our classes being relatively small.
The refresher course will be appropriate whether you have a small or large gap and whether it is your second or subsequent baby. If the timings of our refresher courses are not suitable for you, or you would prefer to attend a more comprehensive course, you would be very welcome to attend one of our full antenatal courses.
