"Antenatal Online has proved to be an absolute godsend for me. I live in a place where antenatal classes are non-existent and so I was overjoyed when I found out that there was such a thing as classes online as well as support from midwives through the site. Even if antena..." read moreAlice

  • My 8 best parenting u-turnsPosted on March 9, 2016 by Antenatal Online Last week my little girl turned 8 which led me to reflect on the usual a) how quickly it has gone and b) how unfeasibly long her legs and arms have become. What also occurred to me as I practically dressed her and squeezed her toothpaste on her toothbrush for her was "what the hell am I doing? She is 8"... Read More
