About this service

Antenatal classes at ESNEFT

Antenatal classes accept a maximum of eight couples (sometimes six). This is to ensure you enjoy the experience and have plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Demand is high, so please ensure you book by 20 weeks of pregnancy. Please book your classes early. Your midwife can do this for you at your antenatal appointment.

Twins and multiple birth evening

This evening allows parents expecting more than one baby to meet other parents and share experiences. The session includes a tour of the neonatal Unit. This is not an antenatal class, but a chance to ask questions of a midwife and twin mum about twin birth and life with twins.

Ask the midwife

This 2 hour session gives you the opportunity to ask questions about any aspect of pregnancy and birth.  It also includes a tour of the birth rooms.  Details of dates and times are posted on our “Colchester Hospital maternity page” on Facebook.

You can book any of the classes at Colchester Hospital by calling us on 01206 742 779 Monday to Friday 9am to12 noon, or ask your midwife.
