THE BUMP & BIRTH JOURNEY  

Antenatal Classes and Birth Preparation in Bedfordshire and Surrounding Areas 
 

Why Choose Us? 

Congratulations on your pregnancy  
 
If you are considering antenatal classes, here is why our antenatal classes are unique and a great choice for you.  
 
Quite simply, we keep it real. We want you to have a great Bump and Birth Journey. Your pregnancy, bump, and birth are your journey. We want your birth to be a fantastic empowering and happy calm experience. And we want you to make great friends along the way.  
 
 
Our classes are fun packed and social. We will teach you all the important techniques and up to date information you need to know for birth and starting postnatal life. We know the value in forming great friendships with like-minded people that are also starting the parenting road. 
 
Our classes are run by midwives that have dedicated their maternity careers to supporting expectant parents through their pregnancies, postnatal and early parenting life. 
 
So if you end up having a normal birth or if you have an assisted birth, or planned birth, you will learn time tested techniques to keep you in control so you achieve the right birth for you.  
 
Whilst there are many antenatal classes out there, our classes are bespoke and can be tailored specifically to your needs. Our groups are smaller than the NHS but still large enough to make new friendships. You may have attended another antenatal class and been left with more questions than answers, our qualified midwives can address them and leave you feeling confident and looking forward to birth and parenting.  
 
Our classes are delivered by Louise Brennan and Tracey McGrath, both highly experienced midwives with over 10 to 15 years experience in the NHS and private sector. They have taught antenatal classes for over 10 years.  
 
 

Our Inspiration for Birth Preparation  

To provide realistic up to date evidence based information and tools to have a calm serene birth whichever way you deliver. To provide continuous support and be the go-to people for any questions you may have about bump and birth 
 
To provide a social network community of expectant parents that can meet and enjoy the pregnancy journey together and form supportive friendships that can go beyond bump birth and baby. We see the difference in expectant couples that are prepared. They are confident, relaxed and take things a step at a time. That makes the experience wonderful.
