Bespoke packages

Breastfeeding course

We understand that during your antenatal classes the time to focus on breastfeeding is limited when there are so many topics to discuss.

This is a small group class, designed around the needs of you and your partner, to ensure you are 100% ready and confident about breastfeeding when the baby arrives.

The course allows plenty of time for practical tips, and covers the truth and myths around breastfeeding, giving you an in-depth knowledge on this very important topic.

This class is limited to a maximum of five couples, ensuring you have the midwife’s undivided attention and the time to have your questions answered.

This class will be held online and the class cost is £90.

To reserve your place in one of our classes 15.00 – 16.30 on Wednesday 3rd February or Wednesday 3rd March please call +44(0)20 3312 6224.

Booking classes

We recommend that antenatal classes are booked any time after 28 weeks of pregnancy. This gives you an opportunity to think about any questions or concerns you may have leading up to the birth and make sure you are familiar with The Lindo Wing surroundings before the big day.

Please note, these classes are exclusively for parents that are having their babies at The Lindo Wing. For more information about any of the courses, information on course dates or to book your place please email imperial.lindo.maternity@nhs.net or call 0203 312 6224.
