Lulubaby antenatal classes will be running at The Portland Hospital from April.
Leading the course is experienced midwife and lactation consultant Beth Graham, who previously spent three years running the infant feeding team at the Portland.
The classes are open to everyone, not just those having their babies at The Portland and will be perfect for women who work in the central London area and want to attend classes after work. They are also convenient for those living in the Marylebone, St John’s Wood and Islington areas
And being based at The Portland, Lulubaby’s clients will have access to leading paediatricians as well as a selection of some of London’s top medical experts and practitioners in a central London location.
‘We are so excited to be opening another venue and in particular to be collaborating with The Portland Hospital,’ says Louisa van den Bergh, founder of Lulubaby. ‘We share the same ethos and balanced attitude towards antenatal care.’
Lulubaby’s antenatal course consists of six evening classes run by many different healthcare professionals including a midwife, obstetrician, anaesthetist, paediatrician, GP, women’s health physiotherapist and lactation consultant.
Ladies receive up-to-date, evidence-based information which is balanced and unbiased. At least half of Lulubaby’s classes focus on what happens after baby arrives – sleep, soothing and all the practicalities of managing birth and coping with a newborn.
Partners are invited to most of the sessions and Lulubaby provides a detailed handbook for their clients to take home for reference. Breastfeeding counsellors are on hand to support once the baby has been born and the company also hosts paediatric first aid sessions and refresher classes for 2nd time mums.
Meanwhile the recently launched Lulunannies provides top quality support at home once their baby has arrived.
