Why go to classes?

Antenatal classes (sometimes called parentcraft classes) can help you to prepare for your baby’s birth and learn to look after and feed your baby. They can help you to keep fit and well during pregnancy, and give you confidence and information. You can learn about the different arrangements for labour and birth, and the choices available to you. This can help you to make your own birth plan. Knowing the differences in health benefits of breastfeeding can help you make an informed choice in how you decide to feed your baby. At classes you can gain information and practical skills that will help you be successful in your chosen method of feeding. You'll be able to discuss your plans and any worries with professionals and with other parents.
