Antenatal Education / Parent Craft Classes
The Antenatal Education (Parent Craft education) team in The National Maternity Hospital play an essential role in promoting, and helping you maintain good health in pregnancy and beyond. We aim to help prepare women and their partners for labour and the changes and challenges that their new baby will bring to their lives. We know that a positive birthing experience can positively affect a woman’s long term wellbeing, and we aim to empower women and their partners to believe in themselves through a partnership approach.
In order to keep you safe during the coronavirus pandemic, we have replaced all our on-site classes with interactive webinars (virtual classes).
Please see the full menu of classes below.

Each resource takes you through a series of educational modules to help you on your journey through pregnancy and beyond, and will be referenced throughout your virtual classes. We recommend that you review each module prior to the classes.
