Parentwise Torbay Birth Preparation Courses are run by qualified midwives Naomi and Fiona who have over 30 years of midwifery experience between us. We feel this puts us in the best position to be providing you with the most relevant, up-to-date information to fully prepare you for your journey into parenthood.
We run 6-week antenatal courses on Thursday evenings in the centre of Newton Abbot and also run weekend courses at The Mothership Baby Hub at Seale Hayne.
You will enjoy small, friendly classes where you can build lifelong friendships and support networks whilst preparing for your baby’s arrival.
We cover all elements of late pregnancy, birth and the early days at home with your baby.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch for more information or visit our website/Facebook page for further information on what our courses offer.
The ideal time to start a course is between 25 and 30 weeks pregnant. However this is just a guideline and will not preclude you from any course.
If you are expecting twins then earlier start date is recommended.
An integral part of all Parentwise courses is to generate lasting friendships and form a strong support network. As part of that ethos a free course reunion will take place approximately a month after the last mother of the group gives birth. It is hoped that this will encourage new parents to set up their own regular ‘coffee mornings’ and continue the mutual support.
