Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NHS in North West London have made it easier for pregnant women to continue getting the maternity care that they need without having to visit the hospital as often
Our maternity hospitals have worked together to produce a series of videos that cover all the topics usually presented during traditional face to face antenatal classes.
Topics covered include:
- managing diabetes during pregnancy
- birth choices (including homebirth)
- labour and birth
- breathing techniques and
- early days after birth.
The videos offer a great alternative to the live classes usually attended by women and couples.
You can find the videos available in our North West London, Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond You Tube playlist and on our website www.nwlondonccgs.nhs.uk. They will also soon be available on the North West London Mum and Baby app which you can search for and download from the Apple app store or Google Play.
It is important that you still attend any antenatal appointments with your midwife or maternity team. Please do also contact them if you are worried about your health or the health of your unborn baby.
