"Parent Education Classes"

About: St Mary's Hospital / Maternity care

I have recently attended the Parent Education Classes held at St Mary's on a Tuesday evening for expectant parents and wanted to say how wonderful they were. I would recommend attending the Birth Workshops and the Breastfeeding classes to anyone expecting their first baby. The midwifes delivering the classes were fantastic, full of knowledge and experience, but most of all very approachable and understanding, meaning that you were never left feeling like there were questions you could not ask. St Mary's should be applauded for providing such a valuable service, and all for free.
