A really amazing course. My partner and I learnt so much, had a lovely and relaxing time (and a bit of a laugh). Sam and Alex were so easy to talk to and so honest about everything. I feel informed and ready to make all the choices I need to around my labour and beyond.
This is our second child but after a traumatic and difficult birth first birth my husband and I wanted some straight talking, practical antenatal classes. Our friends recommended The Naked Midwives and I so glad we did the course. We would highly recommend.
The best 2 Midwives! Sam and Alex made me feel like I now know what I am doing…thank you very much.
We will welcome you at any stage of your pregnancy, however most people find it beneficial to start classes from 28 weeks to 38 weeks. Just remember that you will want to finish the course before you have your baby, so leave enough time!
You can book as early as 12 weeks following your dating scan, however, most women book around 20 weeks gestation.
Yes! All our 1-2-1 classes offered by The Naked Midwives is run by an experienced and qualified midwife.
Most pregnant women find it beneficial to have a birth partner with them so you both learn together and have similar expectations of labour and childbirth. However, we do understand that two people can have exactly the same experience yet a different understanding – so do please ask questions during the course! In some cases women may wish to birth alone so please remember your Midwife is your advocate.
Our courses are open to both women attending with birth partners or women attending alone and, as it is held in your home, you can have 2 attendees with you if you can’t decide!
When you are expecting twins you will be under consultant led care. However, this does not mean to say you do not have birth choices and the exact same birth preparation education would be greatly valuable.
As these classes are individual and bespoke, we can tailor the education to reflect exactly what you need.
Cancelling more than one month before start date – 50% refund
Cancelling two weeks before start date – 25% refund
We do understand that pregnancy is unpredictable and we will endeavour to rearrange your course dates where possible at no extra cost to you.
Contact us through any of the ‘book a call’ buttons or call us direct. Alternatively ping a quick email. Once we have a date that suits all, payment will be taken on line. You can then relax and look forward to your session.
Payment plans are always an option so please contact us to chat things through.
The courses are principally aimed at first time parents, however we understand that things change frequently within maternity care and therefore would suggest second time parents can always benefit from up to date information. Once you have joined The Naked Midwives family, you have email/phone access to a midwife for NON URGENT enquiries and questions right up to day 10 postnatal!
If possible, we will come and see you where ever you are! Our travel is included within a 30 mile radius from Bournemouth, Dorset. We are happy to go further for the cause(!) but there is a surcharge of 50pence per mile.
The Naked Midwives operate educational sessions and support only. We are unable to provide any clinical hands on care. Please only call us with non-urgent questions or queries.
If you are experiencing any pain, bleeding, waters going, reduced movements or anything that needs obstetric input or clinical midwifery care, please call your own assigned community midwife, GP (if before 20 weeks pregnant) or your local Day Obstetric Unit.
What an amazing weekend. Sam came to our home to give us all the knowledge and reassurance we could need as first time parents. We now have a whole ‘toolbox’ and options to dip into as our pregnancy progresses. The day was a perfect combination of both excitable magic and clear honesty.
Fantastic experience with Alex, made to feel very comfortable and in detail and made things very easy to understand. Would highly recommend, worked wonders for us.
Definitely book a day with The Naked Midwives! The 5 * reviews are accurate! Real world advice based on clinical practice. No fluff! Its an investment you wont regret.
