Welcome to The Natal Family. We support families to have a confident, empowered and enjoyable experience into parenthood. Whether you have a baby on the way, or are unsure about how to handle something with your baby or toddler, we can help.
From birth workshops to baby colic, potty training to sleepless nights, dads role at birth to preparing a sibling for a new arrival – this is what we specialize in. Through our DaddyNatal, BabyNatal and MummyNatal programmes we support you whatever stage of pregnancy or parenthood you are at. Our ethos is about CHOICE – we will never teach you one method and claim it is the ‘best’ – we know all families are different, and so we will guide you through a few choices,so you can work out what is right for you – for your family, your pregnancy, your baby.
Why choose a Natal class?
Our teachers are friendly and professionally trained, and our classes are recognized as being of excellent quality – we teach on behalf of Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and presented at the University of Worcester Birth Conference in July 2012, and at the RCM Conference in November 2013. All our teachers are accredited by UK antenatal regulator FEDANT.
We are award winning – in 2011-2012 this included Mum & Working’s ‘Business Parent of the Year’, Mumpreneur UK’s ‘Best Dadpreneur’ and a Dragon’s Den Theo Paphitis’ #SBS Business Award!
