The classes cover a combination of:

Our entirely comprehensive Daisy Parent format draws on elements of active birth, hypnobirthing, parentcraft and traditional antenatal classes to create one very powerful combination. From birth plans to massage in labour, informed choice to packing hospital bags and feeding your baby to changing their nappy and safety tips – we’ve got you covered. This course really does cover it all.
The classes allow you to feel prepared not only for birth, but for the arrival and care of baby too. We know that many parents especially first time parents want to attend a class that covers it all whilst meeting new friends and that’s why this course exists.
Will I make friends?
Of course! (If you want to) our courses are a fantastic way to make friends with other parents to be. There is time to talk to others and share experiences as well as the chance to form part of a WhatsApp group before leaving and a postnatal reunion arranged after all of your babies have arrived.
EVEN OUR ONLINE CLASSES OFFER THE OPTION TO MAKE FRIENDS SUPPORTED BY AN ONLINE COMMUNITY.
