Rainbow Families’ Antenatal Class is perfect for LGBTIQ expectant parents and carers who will be in attendance in the birth suite. The course is aimed at people expecting a baby in the next few months, however depending on numbers is open to all expectant parents.
The class will cover pregnancy, birth and the post natal period and is aimed at parents-to-be. It is an LGTBIQ focused, inclusive, parenting education class.
Topics covered include:
- Early labour
- Active labour
- The newborn baby
- Feeding and recovery
We are lucky to have an experienced educator and midwife – Janet Broady who works in one of the post natal wards at RPA.
