Please read our lovely comments from our parents and parents to be!
This course was absolutely fantastic. Shreena was a really enthusiastic teacher. She kept us completely engaged through every session, and was able to explain concepts really clearly. The course was very well structured. Shreena explained at the beginning of the course what would be covered during each session. However, she was still open to suggestions and flexible, for example a few of us in the group had gestational diabetes and without us even asking she tailored some teaching around this (e.g. colostrum harvesting). The content covered was excellent - she covered lots of important topics which included how things may have changed in hospital with covid-19. There was a good focus on both labour and postnatal care. Practical sessions on putting nappies on, bathing babies, stages of labour were really helpful. There were recap sessions at the beginning of most sessions on information from the last one which helped to consolidate our learning. In terms of preparing for labour, I felt Shreena explained this all particularly well and left us feeling empowered with dealing with what seems like quite a daunting process. She covered all types of delivery really well. The course included a session with an IBCLC certified lactation consultant which was also really helpful; lots of handy tips and advice, and of course we now have her contact details if need further assistance after birth.
My husband and I attended the course in November and found it really useful. I’ve heard that some courses are referred to as ‘an expensive way to meet other parent friends’, however we both walked away from each classes feeling like we had learnt a lot. Our teacher Shreena was really positive and very knowledgeable. There was also a session on a partner’s role which my husband found really useful. Overall we had a great experience and could not recommend this course enough.
All about antenatal definitely delivered! It was exceptional to say the least in the Covid climate & initially we weren't too sure what to expect. Shreena definitely guided to us a positive journey into parenthood. She took on numerous questions and always delivered each class with a wealth of practical advice. We feel ready to face and excited to be part of the All about antenatal family.
We think it was a good balance to have both face to face and online during these times. To be able to bond better with the other couples. And great that they were still able to do it in person and had the space to keep as all at safe distances.
Loved how interactive it was and a fathers perspective was so useful as well as practical skills learnt on the course - bathing and putting baby to sleep
I think it was great very interactive and I still feel we did not miss anything out, Shreena also provided on going support via WhatsApp for any questions we had
Really good course which was interactive and hands on - practical tasks were the best part of the course and a lot of information was given to help us prepare become new mum and dads.
Covid measures “Temperature checked every time. Everyone was social distanced and where group exercises were taking place we were asked to wear masks. One session was on zoom to protect everyone. Couldn’t ask for more.”
