Antenatal classes


All women booked to have their baby at Ormskirk hospital or live in the locality are welcome to attend parent education classes.

The sessions will give you practical information, advice and support to help you prepare for the birth of your baby. You and a partner are welcome to attend.


You can start attending aquanatal exercise classes after your first ultrasound scan providing there are no problems. You will be asked to complete a health questionnaire at the first session. Based on this the midwife will advise you whether there is any part of the class which will be unsuitable for you.

You can also attend aquanatal for six sessions following the birth of your baby as long as you have had a postnatal examination and you have no problems.

Aquanatal classes are held at the following venues:

Ormskirk Park Pool Mondays 9.30am, and 10.15am | 01695 576325

Skelmersdale Nye Bevan Pool Tuesdays 12 noon and 1pm | 01695 727111
