The Complete Birth Prep Package

Everything you need to prepare for birth and early parenthood
Suitable from 20 weeks of pregnancy

Welcome to the Complete Birth Prep Package - a 12 hr, all-inclusive antenatal course held in Livingston, West Lothian, designed to make sure you're ready for every step of your journey towards parenthood. 

We’ll cover everything you need to know to prepare and feel confident about labour, birth and beyond. From understanding the birth process and hypnobirthing techniques to the latest guidance on newborn care, and your own postnatal wellbeing.

​There is also plenty of opportunity to meet and socialise with other local parents-to-be,  make new friendships and build your own support network with like-minded people. 

Birth Prep with Joy Antenatal Courses West Lothian

It's not just about learning the theory – you can also get hands-on with the practical aspects of birthing and baby care in a safe and supportive environment along with having plenty of time to ask questions and share you own thoughts and ideas.  

Once the course has finished, if your circumstances change or you need further support, this is included as part of the package.  

My aim is simple: to help you feel empowered to make informed decisions about your care, to feel confident in your abilities to care for your newborn, and most importantly, to feel excited about this new chapter in your life.
