If you don't have the opportunity to attend practical antenatal classes such as our Babies & Beyond, Express or Hypnobirthing courses - our "Babies & Beyond online" is available for you. The key to a good birth is good education - learn to be in charge of your own care. This is especially important in countries with limited public systems or full blown private healthcare.

We highly recommend supplementing this with a private birth planning session with one of our midwives. This will add huge value to the videos and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have relating to pregnancy, birth or the postnatal period, as well as to discuss your birth plan . The session can take place in our office, over the phone or by Skype. We offer this 30 minute session for you and your partner at the reduced cost of HK$500 - call or email us to arrange.
We manually deal with the orders - so please be patient with us. Access is not instant - you will receive an email with the login very shortly after making your payment for the course.
We are also available for you in your own home to support you after your baby is born. Have a look at our home visits covered by many insurance companies.
