Antenatal Knowledge & Skills Workshops in Shaftesbury


If you are looking for a more comprehensive class then this fabulous one-day workshop is for you. 

It offers an alternative to NCT or NHS classes as we cover a very specific spectrum of knowledge: getting through labour and birth AND THAT’S IT!

Well, of course, we cover a huge amount of knowledge in the day about how the body works in labour, how to help it work better as well as learning and practising useful skills and tools for coping with contractions. 

We also examine the role of the birth partner and help them understand exactly what they need to be doing to be as supportive as possible.

Finally, we start working on the emotional side and start to work towards a truly positive mindset. 

It’s an extremely well-craft antenatal class and is designed to give you everything you need to get you through labour and birth.

You’ve given us lots of tools and what to expect from each stage and the NCT didn’t give us that.

We learned so much from the workshop and feel very confident now.

We completely changed our attitude from thinking it is someone else’s job, to knowing this is our responsibility and it is completely up to us how to go about it. Our views have changed 100%.

Who the antenatal class is for…

This antenatal class in Shaftesbury is for parents who are feeling a bit overwhelmed around the fact that they are going to actually have to go through labour and birth and just feel as if you know nothing at all about what to expect or how to prepare.

You have maybe started doing some research already and have felt swamped by masses of inconsistent information online using unfamiliar words and jargon.

What you really want is just to know where to start, what your options are and where to find unbiased and useful information.

You want to be able to ask all the silly questions that have been going through your head but have no-one to ask.

You want to have a clear idea about what you want so you can start to prepare for it.

You want to feel confident about the questions you have, and knowledgeable about how to get them answered.

But most of all you want to feel excited and prepared!

Does this sound like you?

Perfect for first-time parents, but also second-timers (or third!) who want to do it differently (and better) this time around; this antenatal class covers all the basics so you know what to do next!

It is aimed for the earlier stages in your pregnancy as a starting point to cut through the overwhelm and give you a really clear road-map of what to do to help prepare for birth.

I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Birthzang class and found it enlightening, informative and empowering. As a husband, I thought long and hard on whether we should attend such classes. I was not very knowledgable about birth (apart from what I saw on TV).

I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to go through the trauma, worry and stress of childbirth over and over again! Having been on the class, so many of my questions have been answered and I feel so much more capable and part of the process now.

Thank you, Eleanor, for a great day. Highly recommended (particularly for Dads).

Your classes were so helpful – we really knew very little about the process of labour, and nothing at all about how to handle it.

We went into the labour feeling really confident and relaxed. I found the range of positions you took us through really useful, and used several of them.

Our midwife commented on how happy and relaxed we were and even said that we were making her feel relaxed!

This is definitely a course for a couple to attend as it demystifies birth, particularly for partners. It covers every aspect of birthing and all the variables and circumstances.

It also takes away any fear I came away feeling like I can really do this!


There is a lot of information covered in what seems a short amount of time but Eleanor has constructed her course beautifully so all the information can be digested easily.

My partner and I booked Eleanor for our second child, I was amazed at how much new information Eleanor taught that we hadn’t been told with our first.

I would highly recommend Birthzang to any couple wanting to gain valuable information leading up to the birth of their baby.

Thank you Eleanor!
