Do you want something a bit ....more?

Group Maternity Care

Would you like something different?       erm... yes
Guaranteed appointment time?         absolutely!
Same Friendly midwives?         definately!
No need for additional antenatal classes?         ... saving money?! Sign me up!

Then this is for you! We offer group antenatal care. Our Bump to Baby group takes over AFTER you've "booked" with your chosen NHS hospital, and hands you back when you give birth. Starting at 16 weeks(ish) in your pregnancy, come to our friendly sessions where you will learn to be in control of your own pregnancy! You still have your scans and any additional medical appointments with your NHS team. But we teach you how to do the things like check your urine and blood pressure (we are happy to do it if you don't want to!) You have individual time with the midwife (at EVERY session) to measure your growing bump, listen to your baby's heart beat, and discuss any individual concerns.

You then stay for our group discussions about everything and anything! From sex in pregnancy, to pain relief, from birth partner's tools to the best recipe for lactation cookies! - we will discuss it all, TOGETHER, in a relaxed session - THAT YOU CONTROL.

We are even happy to guide you through the NHS system if you want something they "don't allow!"

Want to hear about other services like baby massage? Want to meet a health visitor? Want to try a bit of birth hypnosis - we will invite any professional to speak / answer your questions at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. Its all determined by you!!

We start a new group every month - and women are invited to the group where babies are due in roughly the same month! We even have a reunion session - mainly so we get to snuggle all the cute little babies!! But you all get to finish your journey together.

You probably wont need expensive other antenatal classes - because we covered the information as well as the mummy / daddy networking!! Put that together with continuity of carer, and a guaranteed appointment time - its a winner!!

Please ask about our groups - coming to Waltham Abbey, Harlow, Walthamstow.

Please check out our OPEN DAYS to come meet the team and find out more!
