HAPPY Online Antenatal Course

The HAPPY online antenatal programme is a free and friendly six-week programme for pregnant women between 22 and 32 weeks’ pregnant living in the Better Start Bradford area

Watch this brief introductory video:

The sessions are a relaxed way to think about your transition to parenthood and particularly any challenges around healthy lifestyles.

Over six fun and interactive online sessions you’ll learn all about:

  • Understanding your baby and babies’ brain development
  • Breastfeeding and bonding with your baby
  • Being active in safe ways
  • Your future as parents and as a healthy family
  • The need to nurture yourself
  • Preparing for birth and beyond

With so much uncertainty at the moment due to COVID-19, they are also a great way to meet other women who are likely to be experiencing many of the same hopes and fears as you. At the end of the six weeks you’ll receive a free gift!

There’s a 1.5 hour session every week for six weeks with up to ten women in a group. Groups are currently meeting online over Zoom and are led by experienced, trained practitioners. Your partner or a family member is welcome to join you on the video calls.
