I learnt a lot from Birth Companions and they were like a family for me and my baby. They supported me in every way.

Targeted antenatal classes in Hackney – by referral only

From January 2017, Birth Companions began delivering a programme of targeted antenatal courses in Hackney aimed at supporting pregnant women who are due to give birth at the Homerton Hospital and/or live in the borough of Hackney.

Each course includes six weekly classes, lasting 1½ hours each, on Thursday mornings from 11am. Classes cover topics like pregnancy health & wellbeing, positions for labour & birth, pain relief, writing a birth plan, breastfeeding and what happens after birth. Refreshments, handouts, books to borrow and maternity clothes are also available free of charge at every session and women’s travel costs to classes are paid for by Birth Companions.
