August Antenatal and Postnatal Class

The Rainbow Families Antenatal Class is Australia’s first LGBTQ+ specific antenatal class. Run quarterly, it is perfect for LGBTQ+ parents and carers expecting a baby in the next few months. The Rainbow Families antenatal class is an LGTBQ+ focused, inclusive, parenting education class. The first half of the day is dedicated to the birth process, and is aimed at people who will be in the birth suite. After lunch the class opens up to all expectant parents and carers, with important information on postnatal care, and what to do when you get home with your baby.

Our next class will be held on August 28, between 9am and 5pm.
