PREGNANCY WELL-BEING ONLINE ANTENATAL CLASSES FOR FIRST & SECOND TRIMESTERS
NEW pregnancy well-being classes for 1st & 2nd trimesters - starting from 9th September from 9 -10.30am.
We are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new set of antenatal classes for early pregnancy alongside our colleagues, to help guide Mums to optimise their health in response to much appreciated feedback from our patients.
Each tailored class will be led by hospital specialists giving mums a chance to hear valuable information from different departments within the hospital. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.
The classes are online and will run the first three Fridays of every month. The 1st week will be a talk led by a midwife and pharmacist, the 2nd week by a physiotherapist and the third week by a dietitian.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for link to class. Looking forward to seeing you there!
