Antenatal Classes

Here at Bump, Birth, Baby & Beyond, we have created a safe space, providing the knowledge and skills to support parents through pregnancy, labour and the beautiful transition to parenthood. We do this by delivering evidenced based, unbiased information that is facilitated by Sophie, a fully qualified Community Midwife. We use KGHypnobirthing techniques which aims to build confidence of both Mother and birth partner during labour. With the philosophy of "where the mind goes, the body will follow" these techniques are proven to build positivity and calmness in women's ability to birth their baby.
