"I can't recommend Antenatal Online highly enough. It was interesting for me to watch the videos as I did a traditional class for my first baby (18 months or so ago) and am now pregnant with number two. I learnt more from 10 minutes of the 1st AO video than I did on my enti..." read moreKatherine

"The videos provided me with information not shared by my NHS midwife. Brilliant series all round! All of the videos are clear and concise without being patronising. It's great that you can go back and watch them as many times as you wish - often with group classes you don..." read moreTracey

"...My partner also found the videos interesting. He will be a first time dad and despite claiming he doesn't want to know what goes on in the delivery room actually found it very helpful. The videos have certainly encouraged me to believe in my body and it's ability to..." read moreParent Panel

  • Do I really need a birth plan?Posted on January 23, 2015 by Antenatal Online Even if I don't rigidly stick to it (and let's be honest, I rarely do) I always feel slightly more in control of life if I have a plan. I'm just not very good at simply seeing where the day will take me. To be honest in the absence of a plan, the day generally doesn't take me much further than the living room. And the cake tin.
