Within the Plymouth and Cornwall area the ‘Great Expectations’ antenatal programme is offered. This is a four week course consisting of 1 x two-hour session per week, which aims to provide parents-to-be/ with useful information and practical skills, to help them feel more comfortable about making choices for their new arrival, whether it is their first baby or not.


The course includes:

· A healthy pregnancy
· Changes to relationships
· Preparation for birth
· Birth assistance

· Parental support

For families away from Plymouth or Cornwall an alternative antenatal programme will be offered that encompasses all of the above. Please complete the booking form and we will direct it to the appropriate team.
