BWH Parent Education Classes

Latest update: 25 September 2020

 

Please note that all Parent Education courses are being facilitated online via Zoom and exclusively offered to parents who are under the care of the Birmingham Women's Hospital. 

 

Classes are live, interactive and the content is exactly the same as in a face to face setting.  Feedback from parents has been extremely positive.

 

‘Thank you for a good day, it was full of useful information and we feel much better informed about the processes and options that are available to us.’

 

‘Really enjoyed the course.  Well delivered and very engaging.  Feel a lot more prepared.  Thank You!

 

‘Fantastic class, extremely informative and useful.  Very enjoyable.  Thank you!’

 

The Parent Education Room is not large enough for groups to comply with social distancing rules and limited space means that expectant parents would have to be seated in close proximity to each other for several hours at a time. Measures are still being taken across the hospital to keep face to face contact to a minimum, meaning that our services continue to be delivered differently. 

 

Therefore, for the safety of everyone, online courses will remain the norm for the rest of this year.

You will receive your zoom log-in the Friday before the start of the class (check your spam folder), if you have not received it 24 hours before the start of your course please email us at bwc.parenteducation@nhs.net.

 

You will have a much better experience if you have your Audio AND Video on during the zoom class. Our classes are interactive.
