Frequently Asked Questions
Sometimes called prenatal classes, antenatal classes cover everything that happens before the birth of your baby. As specialists in both antenatal and early parenthood, Nourish Baby’s antenatal class bundle also includes information to support you through the first stages of your newborn’s life.
Nourish Baby's antenatal classes online cover a wide range of topics that help you manage your pregnancy, labour and birth. Our courses are designed to make your experience a positive one, and give you the information, knowledge and skills you need to make informed decisions throughout your pregnancy.
We typically recommend beginning antenatal classes around your 20th week of pregnancy. However, our online antenatal classes are available forever, so you can explore our courses and bundles at any time before, during or after your pregnancy.
Online antenatal classes deliver all the same messages and information as in-person classes at a maternity clinic or hospital. Having access to the material at any time allows expectant parents to work through and revisit classes as many times as they like, which can be a major help for those struggling to find the time for in-person classes.
Parents in Australia are entitled to leave work for antenatal classes and appointments under their normal sick leave entitlements. An employer who refuses leave to attend appointments may be violating Australian anti-discrimination laws. Nourish Baby’s online antenatal classes can be accessed at any time, allowing you to fit classes in around your daily schedule.
