Online Antenatal Course

Understanding pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby

This Solihull Approach antenatal online course gives parents practical information about pregnancy and birth, whilst at the same time introducing them to their baby.
It explains how and why those around this baby are so important, whether they 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 their relationship with this baby before the baby even makes an appearance.
The course 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 person goes on the face to face course and the other does the online course they will cover the same material.
