Antenatal Classes 2020

Please note antenatal classes have been cancelled at this time due to COVID-19. Classes will resume as soon as safely possible.

While we cannot have face to face classes at this time, the midwives at the antenatal clinic have provided all women with an antenatal information pack which provides information on all aspects of pregnancy, birth and postnatal needs.
