Antenatal Programme

The transition to parenthood is a major life event. Becoming a parent for the first time involves moving from a known current reality to an unknown new reality.  The traditional antenatal programme usually focuses on the preparation for the birth of the baby but rarely prepares parents for what to expect once their baby has arrived. 

This course consists of three 90 minute sessions where we give parents an opportunity to:

  • Increase their understanding of their baby’s development  
  • Learn practical skills and supports to make the transition to parenthood easier
  • Engage in activities that will encourage parents to bond with their baby before they are born
  • Learn skills to manage stress birth both during and after pregnancy
