Antenatal classes

Parent education

All women booked to have their baby at Ormskirk hospital are welcome to attend our midwife-led parent education classes. The sessions will give you practical information, advice and support to help you prepare for the birth of your baby.

We offer the choice of a Saturday workshop (9.30am to 4pm) or four weekly evening sessions (either Tuesdays or Thursdays between 6.30pm and 8pm).

For further information or to book please contact your named community midwife or the community office on 01695 656668.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, on-line antenatal courses and videos have been developed to support parents-to-be. Here are two links which may help you access some really useful information:
