About the event

This Antenatal Course is designed with both Mother and Birthing Partners in mind; it aims to support you to make the decisions that are right for you and your family, which are unique to each and every individual.

As a Mother of 3, a Birth Doula, and someone who has been running courses for Pregnant & Postpartum women for 6 years in Bangor, I have seen, heard and learned a lot about birth in this time. I feel strongly that birth can be an empowering and emboldening experience for both mother and partner and my wish is that this course helps you towards that end, while also enjoying your pregnancy! The course is suitable for both first time parents as well as more seasoned parents - your stories, experiences and learnings will be very welcome.

This course will hopefully be held in a secluded room next to a cafe (currently waiting to hear from Y Bedol in Bethel, near Bangor and Caernarfon), so that you can have full access to the beautiful range of teas, coffees and treats from the cafe (not included in the ticket price)! This will be a gently interactive course, I invite you to take an active role in your labour and birth preparations!

You can book the whole course, or simply drop in for one or more sessions, it's up to you.

Above is a brief outline of what we aim to cover in the sessions. We will of course tailor the sessions to what is most relevant to the group!

Testimonials from previous participants:

"I've attended 3 sessions so far in Laura's Antenatal classes and have found it to be totally brilliant. I thoroughly recommend!

As the partner to my pregnant wife,  it's really nice to be included in these sessions as so much of pregnancy is focused on the mother only. Laura has a way of creating a really honest and open forum, and comes prepared with loads of interesting content which is at just the right level,  and also allows for questions and good discussions involving everyone. My partner and I leave feeling reassured about the whole process,  better educated and more excited each time. Fellas I'd really encourage getting involved in this,  after a few classes I dunno what I'd do without it!" - Greg

"I'm only a few classes in and Laura's Antenatal Classes have already made a huge difference to how i'm feeling about child birth. I'm

feeling at ease, empowered and looking forward to the rest of the course. It's been a safe space to talk about worries, ask questions and learn. Thank you!" - Sally
