Parent Education Classes


Congratulations on the good news of your pregnancy. Here at the Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital we understand that this is a new and exciting period in your life. You and your partner may have many questions regarding pregnancy, birth and caring for a new baby. The Parent Education Department aims to support you every step of the way on the road to parenthood with a variety of classes designed to give you information and build your confidence.

We recommend that you and your partner attend our antenatal classes to inform yourself of all available choices and prepare for labour, birth and your new role as parents.

Parents-to-be can choose from a range of classes to suit their individual needs. We recommend that you and your partner attend our introductory class as early as possible for information on the early stages of pregnancy.

Classes available are:

  • A one morning only refresher class for parents who already have children
  • Daytime classes once a week over a period of five weeks
  • Evening classes once a week over a period of five weeks
  • A complete one day Saturday class for parents who cannot attend during weekdays
  • A one evening Twin and Triplet class in addition to the regular classes of your choice
  • A weekly tour of the hospital
  • Local classes in Tallaght, Clondalkin and Naas with our community midwives' team
  • Antenatal physiotherapy classes with the Physiotherapy Department; 3 separate classes complementing the Parent Education classes. Please note there is limited availability for these classes, so you will need to book early by completing and returning the Booking Form to us as soon as possible.
