Patients and Visitors
In Plymouth, expectant parents-to be can attend a free antenatal education programme called Great Expectations. This is a four week course consisting of a 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 antenatal programme is run in partnership with your local children’s centre, and delivered by parenting experts, midwives and the health visiting service. It is an opportunity to ask those questions you have wanted to ask, meet and talk to other parents and meet the professionals. You can attend alone, with your partner or alternatively with a friend or relative. Do book on via Eventbrite as soon as possible – warm welcome awaits!
