Get Ready For Labour (Active Birth)

All pregnant women under the care of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Maternity Services and their partner / support person are welcome to attend this 2 hour session.

Please do not book if you are attending either the Kirklees 'Prep for Parenthood' or Calderdale 'Getting Ready for Baby' course as the content is similar.

All sessions are held at Calderdale Hospital, face to face, in small groups.

The focus of the session is on normal labour and birth and what birth partners can do to help, however the content can be adapted to the needs of those attending.

Suitable for first time parents or those wanting a refresher.

The best time to attend is between 30 and 36 weeks, although not strictly applied. Partners or birth companions are welcome, please book them a place.

Please note that Covid-19 infection control measures will apply, including use of hand gel, wearing a face mask and social distancing whilst on the premises.
