The Antenatal Course:

The 6 session MBCP course combines the teaching of traditional antenatal classes with mindfulness practice. The programme is offered as group sessions and the cost of the course is £ 150,00. (20% discount offered on courses starting May 2018 and July 2018 = £120).

Each class is 2.5 hours long and we will practice guided meditation such as sitting and walking meditation as well as mindful stretching/Yoga. You will learn about the normal physiology of labour with an emphasis on developing skills to work with pain. We will discuss positions in labour, pain relief, breast feeding and the baby cycle after bith as well as the neurological, biological, and emotional needs of the newborn.

In addition to guided meditation during the classes there is an expectation that participants practice guided meditation at home for 15-30 minutes a day, 6 days a week in order to fully gain the benefit of the course.

The classes build one on the other in a structured way so it is important to make best effort to attend the full course. No prior meditation experience is required.

The course can be taken at any stage in pregnancy but it is suggested to start the class no later than the 30th week of pregnancy and bring the person who will be supporting you at birth.
