All classes partially reimbursable. Our midwife – led prenatal classes given in English prepare the pregnant woman and her partner (attendance alone is fine too!) realistically for what is to come; we recommend that you aim to complete your education by your 36/37th week of pregnancy. No more than 9 couples/singles per course. Same-sex couples and single attendees warmly welcomed.

Planning and pregnancy – 50 euros per 30 mins private appointment. Individual sessions to meet your needs. Covering administrations of pregnancy, passport/nationality issues, hospital policies, reimbursements and entitlements, and creche bookings.

6-session courses – 265 euro per couple, 210 euros per single place. Weekdays 6.30-8.30pm and weekends. These are run continuously throughout the year and prepare you completely for what is to come to include:  Breastfeeding and Confident baby-skills workshops and a 2-hour practical session emulating labour; strategies of coping, mindfulness, hypnobirth, massage, epidural and how to push!.

Survive! Labour ward. Cost 95 euros per couple

Refresher course or a fast-paced course for the busy first-time mum.

 A 4-hour workshop, to include taught skills to cope with contractions. Within a group of maximum 9 couples/singles, you will learn how to recognise the onset of labour, labour preparations, and how to breathe, move and push (!) You will practice different positions of labour and delivery and find one that suits you.

Breastfeeding workshop (included within the 6-session course) or 55 euros. This should be attended during the prenatal period and is a 2-hour, fun -packed class containing the most important instruction we can give you to prepare you for breastfeeding. We practice latch and discuss optimal feeding management so that you and your baby optimise sleep. Partners are encouraged to attend as it is our firm belief that surviving the postnatal period is most definitely a team event. Breastfeeding support then follows- on from this instruction in the form of clinic appointments should you need this. Classes run Saturdays and some Sundays. This is included in your 6 session course fee but can be attended on a stand-alone basis and are run 2 or 3 times per month, usually on a Saturday.
