Covid-19 Pandemic

We are really sorry but it is unlikely that we will be able to resume face to face antenatal classes during the winter months 2020/21. Throughout this period we have created online 'modules' here on the Whats On page directing you to suitable online resources to help you and your birth partner to prepare for labour, birth, nurturing and feeding your newborn.

Please do send us your feedback / FAQ's and keep popping back from time-to-time to check for new developments. TIP: Open the links in a new tab so that you don’t lose the page!

You can also keep up-to-date with us at Better Births at Calderdale and Huddersfield https://www.facebook.com/betterbirthsCHFT/

If you need to talk to us about any of the topics shared on What's on, please call or text the What’s on line 0771 751 7563 and a member of the team will get back to you as soon as possible. We are also happy to talk to you on this line if you are worried about Covid and how it is affecting you & your pregnancy journey.

We will keep reviewing the Covid-19 situation and will resume our programme of courses as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
