Online Antenatal Course

Understanding pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby

This antenatal online course gives you practical information about pregnancy and birth, whilst at the same time introducing you to your baby.

It explains how and why you are so important to this baby, whether you are the mother, father, partner, grandparent or birth partner. It integrates the traditional information given on an antenatal course with a new approach to starting your relationship with your baby before your baby even makes an appearance!

The course has content you can trust. It was developed by Registered Midwives working with health professionals in the Solihull Approach team. It has the same content as the Solihull Approach face to face antenatal course, which has the same name ‘Understanding pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby. This means that if one of you goes on the face to face course and the other does the online course you will cover the same material.

There is a version of this course for women couples.
