Antenatal classes - Bump, Birth and Baby Stuff
In order to deliver the best possible patient care during the Coronavirus outbreak, we will be re-organising aspects of children's services that are provided and delivered by Bedfordshire Community Health Services. Please see the details on our public website (https://www.cambscommunityservices.nhs.uk/Bedfordshire/bedfordshire-children's-how-coronavirus-is-affecting-our-services) for which services will be continuing, what changes will be made, and what will be suspended until further notice.
Bedford Borough’s Bump, Birth and Baby Stuff is a collaborative education programme, providing seamless antenatal care to first time expectant parents who live in Bedford Borough.
The partnership is made up of Bedford Borough Council, Bedford Hospital, NHS Bedfordshire Community Health Services and Bedford Borough’s Children’s Centres managed by the Early Childhood Partnership and Families First Bedfordshire.
Topics covered include:
- Responsive feeding
- Caring for our babies
- Play, development & responsive parenting
- Planning and getting ready
- Your health and wellbeing
Ideally, expectant mums should be at least 30 weeks gestation or more to attend this session and they must be a resident of Bedford Borough.
Partners are encouraged to attend too. In order for the venue to meet health and safety regulations, every person that wishes to attend will need to book an individual ticket. If you would like to bring a partner/friend/family member with you, please just book a second ticket in the name of that person.
See individual classes for timings, if the class is all day there will be a break for lunch so do bring a picnic/packed lunch with you. Drinks and light refreshments (biscuits and fruit) will also be available throughout the day.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BOOKING SITE OPENS 4 WEEKS BEFORE THE COURSE STARTS. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BOOK BEFORE THIS DATE.
Please be aware that the 3 afternoon course and the one day course are the same programme so please do not book on both. Thank you.
