MVP case study: Northumbria Ante Natal Classes
During the pandemic, it became clear that families really missed the contact and support usually provided at the ante natal classes. Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust was able to respond really quickly to put together a set of online ante natal classes.
There are a set of three classes available: introduction to labour & birth, postnatal care, and infant feeding. there is also a ‘next birth after caesarean’ for those who need it. These sessions have been really well received with extremely positive feedback. They cater for larger numbers than physical classes can and mean that many more families can access this support.
