Birth Preparation Classes

Which birth classes should you attend?

You may be unsure particularly if it’s your first baby, however we’ve got your back.

You may work long hours or shifts or find that the NHS classes offered are either full, unavailable or not at a convenient time.

National providers of parent education are not midwives and you may find the realities of childbirth are not covered.

Our classes cater to smaller groups with a maximum of 5-6 couples

No need to cherry pick birth preparation sessions from various providers as we cover everything all under one roof

Our classes are held every Thursday evening at 6.30pm in Boldmere Sutton Coldfield on a rolling programme throughout the year

What my clients say 

Linda’s positive and informative approach makes you look forward to the whole process. Linda has a wealth of knowledge and can honestly answer any questions you may have. She’s been a midwife for over 20 years and travelled around the country and worked in many hospitals so she’s really seen it all. I never knew I had the choice to say no to an induction.

Not only have I gained a wealth of information from Linda’s private class but I have also found her Facebook videos to be very useful! If you are a first time mom or maybe even a second time mom and you want a different experience… Ladies I can’t recommend her online classes and private classes enough! Life-changing!

Thank you Linda for giving me the confidence, information and empowering women in realising we have the right to the birth we want!

My husband and I attended two classes with Linda, feeding and infant care and infant first aid. Both classes were informative, relaxed and extremely beneficial. From talking to others we received so much more information compared to other antenatal classes there are. What we particularly liked about Linda – she wasn’t forceful with her views, she simply gave all the information so we could make informed choices for us and our baby.

She continued to offer support even if it was just answering another random question we had. We always felt assured we were getting great advice and guidance with Linda’s expertise and years of experience in midwifery. Every penny was worth it!

I contacted Linda after looking for support during pregnancy. I felt the other options weren’t for me, and wanted honest and practical advice.
We attended both of the courses and I left feeling informed, relaxed (as you can be) and provided me with facts/tips that were very helpful. Linda is a midwife who is up to date, very honest and tells you as it is. In a good way!
We learnt more in 3hrs than some of my friends learnt in 3 days with other classes.
Following the course I had a massage, which was amazing but also gave me 121 time with Linda to ask questions and chat through my worries. Thank you Linda you are wonderful x
Absolutely amazing! Myself and my partner were so stressed as it’s our first child, but Linda has given us so much confidence that we really feel ready and are actually looking forward to everything to come. Amazing depth of knowledge from Linda and a really personable and relatable approach to Antenatal education. Can’t recommend fromb2b enough! Thank you so much x
