Classes are available for all pregnant ladies to attend, not just those booked to have their baby in Cardiff however, early booking is advised to ensure dates of your choice. Women with singleton pregnancies are advised to have completed the course by 36 weeks gestation as some babies decide to come early! Women with twin pregnancies should start classes at 24 weeks gestation as they may deliver even earlier.
