About this course

This course is for parents, grandparents and carers - for everyone in the new arrival's life who wants to access an antenatal course and build a strong, healthy relationship with the baby.

It integrates the traditional information given on an antenatal course with a new approach to starting your relationship with your baby before your baby even makes an appearance!

It explains how and why you are so important to this baby, whether you are the mother, father, partner, grandparent or birth partner.

The course has content you can trust. It was developed by Registered Midwives working with Clinical Psychologists and Health Visitors in the Solihull Approach team. It has the same content as the Solihull Approach face to face antenatal course of the same name. This means that if one of you goes on the face to face course and the other does the online course you will cover the same material.

This is a course, a journey through knowledge. If you are looking for information on specific topics you might prefer NHS Choices. Each modules takes around 20 minutes to complete. There are interactive activities, quizzes and video clips. There is also an optional voiceover.
