DECEMBER 2016: UPDATE

 

WE STILL HAVE SPACES in DECEMBER WITH COURSES @ COMMUNITY VENUES

 

WE HAVE GOT AVAILABILITY FOR JANUARY, FEBRUARY and MARCH 2017.

Scroll down to book your course on-line now.

 

If you have any problem or question when booking your antenatal class on our system, or if you have special requirements (e.g. mobility) simply email parenteducation@nhs.net or ring 0121 318 2377 and leave a message . Our office is not manned 24/7 but if you send an email or leave a voice mail, it will be picked up within 48 working hours.

In general, we have greater availability on the community courses due to the larger room size, whereas we are limited in the hospital and courses fill quickly. Community course cover the same topics as the hospital courses and you still do get a chance to do a tour of the delivery suite / birthing centre on a Sunday afternoon.

When a course is fully booked, we can not add up any extra participant but you can get onto our waiting list if you wish to.

If you have booked onto another antenatal course with a non-NHS organisation and would like to join one of our monthly hospital tours, please email us directly parenteducation@nhs.net with the following information:
- The name of the provider of the antenatal course you are booked on
- Your estimated due date
-  Your full name and the Birmingham Women's Hospital Number

We will then get back to you with a date and time.

 

BOOK ONLY ONE COURSE and aim to attend the course when you are about 30-35 weeks pregnant (or a bit earlier if expecting multiples).  If you book more than one course, you risk losing your place on both. We want to ensure that as many parents-to-be as possible have the opportunity to attend our courses. BOOK ONLY ONE TICKET (one ticket is valid for up to 2 people).
