The date shown above is the course start date – this course takes place 1.00-3.00pm every Thursday starting 16 January 2018 for eight weeks.

logoWelcome to the World is a free, friendly antenatal course for any family expecting a baby. Over eight weeks, it helps pregnant mums, dads and carers prepare for life with a new baby, whether it’s their first child or not. Taking place in local community centres, the course enables expectant parents to share experiences with each other and explore the changes that new babies bring, and how families can provide them with the best possible start in life. It aims to help more families in our area access important antenatal advice and meet other families around them.

Who’s it for? Anyone expecting a baby – mums, dads and carers – usually in weeks 22-28 of pregnancy

Who delivers it? Local children’s centres and other partners in the Better Start Bradford area. It is a Family Links approved course.

The course is packed with useful advice, ideas and discussions, including:

  • Looking after your baby while they are in the womb
  • Practical tasks of caring for a new baby
  • Communicating and bonding with babies
  • Understanding baby brain development
  • Exploring your future and the move into parenthood
  • Exploring your roots, traditions, hopes and concerns
  • Considering how parents and carers can look after themselves
