During pregnancy, you will have time to think about your future as a parent and to consider some options for yourself and your baby, including decisions about the birth and about feeding your baby. We provide parent education classes to help you prepare for the birth and for parenthood
Due to Covid-19 we are currently unable to offer face-to-face Antenatal Classes. Our classes have been professionally filmed and are available here alongside detailed slide shows with a lot of Homerton specific information and signposting to high quality links and resources. On these files and videos you can find all the information our Midwives would usually provide at face-to-face sessions.

Meet your Midwives
We are currently in the process of setting up digital sessions in which women will have the opportunity during their pregnancy to meet midwives working in Delivery Suite and the Birth Centre. These sessions will allow you to spend some time with a midwife discussing the places of birth that are available to you and answer any questions you may have about our services.
Updates will be made as soon as the project is up and running.
