Parent education classes are a really good way of finding out information and receiving guidance during pregnancy. You will then be better able to make informed decisions about your labour and birth preferences.
A variety of classes are available in your local community and also at the City Hospital in our parent education room. You can attend these sessions if you are booked to have your baby at QMC, City Hospital or at home.
We recommend you start the classes when you are around 32 weeks pregnant, but do book as early as possible as the classes do get booked up.
The workshops are run by midwives or physiotherapists who specialise in women’s health. All these workshops are open to women and their partners or birth supporters.
Workshops held at City Hospital are:
Workshop 1: Preparation for labour and birth
Workshop 2: Pain management and alternative births
Workshop 3: Infant feeding and early parenting
Workshop 4: Multiple pregnancies
Workshop 5: Look after yourself in pregnancy and beyond

In the community the workshops are held at varying times and venues. Please speak to your community midwife for more details.
Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
