I would highly recommend these classes to new mummy’s and daddy’s to be. Caroline and Julia were amazing and make a great team!
These classes meant both my partner and I had all the information we needed during the labour process, due to this I felt in control throughout labour and my husband was able to discuss our preferences with the healthcare professionals when I was unable.
Not only were these classes informative and fun (not to mention the delicious cake each week), we also met some great people who we continue to see. It is so valuable and comforting having other new parents to share our experiences with!
We have just finished our antenatal classes with Julia and Caroline and it was so informative and fun from start to finish.
Both ladies are extremely knowledgeable and lovely! It was great to meet other couples and share our questions and thoughts in a safe and welcoming environment. I would highly recommend the course to anyone, can’t wait for the reunion once all of our group babies are here
As a first time dad I didn’t really know what to expect from one of the these courses, I think people typically associate them as designed for Mum’s and the Dad just goes along.
Although it’s true in many aspects… I found this course really useful and informative. Julia & Caroline are great and have created a fantastic course that is adapted to both parents needs.
The classes fly by but after each session you come out with much more than you went in with (including realising my immaturity levels are much lower than I thought – mainly due to holding back the laughter from the mention of words like ‘boobs’!). On a serious note from a Dads point of view, I would highly recommend this course. The level of information is great, the course guides are great and I feel much more prepared than I did 5 weeks on. On top of this you get to meet other great couples who are due at similar times.
Thanks for everything, speak to you all soon.
Really enjoyed the 5 week course and I would highly recommend them to any expectant parents out there.
Julia and Caroline deliver an excellent course, very thorough and me and my husband came away knowing a lot more than we expected and also feel a lot more confident in what to expect during labour.
The bonus of these classes- the wonderful homemade cakes. Thank you!
My husband and I were only able to attend the last antenatal class (to which Parent Prep were extremely accommodating) and we left feeling so much more confident in our knowledge about labour, birth and the most important part…how to take care of a new born baby!
After meeting Julia and Caroline I immediately signed up to their postnatal classes/cafe which was the best thing I could have done! I found the first few weeks of motherhood very challenging and felt apprehensive about attending my first baby cafe.
From the moment I walked in I felt so welcome and supported by Julia and Caroline, and as well the other new mums. There was no judgement, no negativity, just a group of fantastic men and women with lots of great advice and support. And extra sets of hands to help hold your baby so you can enjoy a hot (yes, hot!) cup of coffee and a pastry…the highlight of my week! I would without a doubt recommend Parent Prep’s antenatal and postnatal classes!
We’ve just recently finished our 5 week antenatal course with Parent Prep and I have to say, my fiancé and I loved it. We felt so comfortable and supported throughout our journey. We were able to feel at ease when asking questions and Caroline and Julia have been amazing. It is because of them that I feel very positive about the upcoming birth of our baby and I am actually feeling excited about it! We had such a positive experience and I would highly recommend it.
Looking forward to the next meet up with our babies! Thanks again for all your support, wisdom and positivity.
Attending ParentPrep has helped me and my husband so much. At first I was very nervous, I’m not really comfortable in situations like that but I was made to feel completely at ease straight away!
I even looked forward to next weeks sessions, the classes are informative and help you go away with all the information you would need about during childbirth so you can make the right decision for you and know exactly what to expect, the last session we learnt all about after birth which was amazingly helpful as well.
I loved the classes so much I signed up for the next lot! Julia and Caroline can’t help you enough and always willing to answer questions and go above and beyond. Highly recommend to any new parents to be! No judgement, just like friends!

My husband and I signed up to these antenatal classes after we attended the NHS provided session and panicked! Julia and Caroline’s classes were exactly what we were looking for; relaxed and informative. The classes covered lots of different birth scenarios and explanations of why things happen or what different procedures might occur.
There was a lot of assistance with how to approach different situations to ensure you have control over your pregnancy and birth experience as much as possible. There was also information about feeding and caring for your baby when they arrive which we found helpful.
All the sessions were well run and there was chance to ask any questions you had throughout. The group is a great opportunity to meet other people at a similar stage of pregnancy as you and discuss experiences.
All the sessions come with supporting handouts which we found really useful to write our birth plan and to refer back to when the time came. It was great to attend these classes with my husband as it meant that he knew all the same information as me and was able to help communicate with the staff during final check ups and the birth and to understand what was happening throughout.
I believe that attending these classes really improved both mine and my husbands experience at the birth as all the knowledge we acquired helped us to relax.
Following the birth, myself and my daughter have been attending the postnatal cafe which is very enjoyable. Its great to meet with other mums and hear how they are getting on and to get advice.
The group has been friendly, Julia and Caroline have provided a really relaxed environment and are able to tailor advice to your needs. I’ll be sad when its over!

Attending ParentPrep’s antenatal classes is one of the best decisions I have ever made. First class in and I immediately felt a whole lot more confident in facing my first child birth. The classes are very informative and presented in a very fun and concise manner.
Julia and Caroline are knowledgeable and I never felt ashamed for asking any weird or silly questions. I felt that I had a good birth experience and it is all thanks to the things I learnt from ParentPrep.
As for the postnatal classes, they are my highlight of the week where I get to meet with fellow mums and their babies while learning new and things such as first aid.
I also get to listen to share experiences with other mums which puts me at ease knowing that I am not alone. I would definitely recommend ParentPrep to any of my pregnant friends.

Great relaxed and informal atmosphere, comfortable environment and really enjoyed every session (even Tony was sad the sessions were due to end).
Great dynamic between Caroline and Julia who are clearly passionate and subject matter experts.
Louise, Tony & Sebby
The course was very helpful and presented in a fashion that was easy to understand and informative.
The ladies both clearly are very passionate about what they do which makes it easier to appreciate where they are coming from, and approachable which was one of the most important aspects.
We never felt that we were asking a stupid question and were made to feel very comfortable.
