Antenatal classes

We are running Antenatal classes for parents in Milton Keynes. These classes can help to prepare you for labour, birth and early parenthood.

The classes are being held on a Saturday and Sunday and the day will be 10:00am – 4:00pm with a break for lunch. We ask that you bring your lunch and a bottle of water, there will be other refreshments available on the day for a small donation.

There is free car parking on each site available.

We will be able to provide some take away information on the day and links to further reading. If you require any information in different languages, please let us know and we will do our best to support with this.

What do antenatal classes include?

The classes are a great opportunity for you to meet other people from Milton Keynes who will be having a new baby at a similar time to you. The classes are facilitated by a midwife and a maternity support worker.

The topics covered during the day are:

  • Stages of labour
  • Monitoring your wellbeing
  • Monitoring your baby’s wellbeing
  • Signs of labour
  • Informed decisions making and consent
  • Pain relief in labour
  • Different modes of birth
  • The golden hour

  • Emotional wellbeing and baby blues
