NEW sessions for parents-to-be have been started at Airedale General Hospital.

Issues ranging from keeping the birth normal to feeding and caring for your baby are covered.

Parent education midwife Clare Luby, who has designed the sessions with colleague Caroline Lowe, said: "We’re really excited to be offering this service to women and their birth partners.

"There is good evidence to show improved outcomes and better birth experiences for those women who have accessed parent education during their pregnancy.

"As well as running these sessions, we are busy designing some specifically aimed at grandparents and birth partners too. We are hoping to launch these shortly.”
