Antenatal classes

The practice provides FREE antenatal classes to all our registered patients.

The Practice offers a unique service for expectant parents - parentcraft classes delivered by practitioners trained by the National Childbirth Trust (NCT).

Evening sessions are run regularly at The Orchard Practice or at our sister practice The Churchill Medical Centre in Kingston.  They offer a unique approach to ante-natal classes and are an ideal way to get to know other local families.  The classes are run by Hilary, an NCT qualified practitioner with many years’ experience. 

You can contact Hilary on 020 8339 9577 to book on to a course or find out more information.  Alternatively, speak to the surgery reception team for further information.

Book early to avoid disappointment, but please wait until your pregnancy has been confirmed!
