To be able to facilitate the 5-week ‘Journey to Parenthood: Understanding pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby’ antenatal parenting group, combining traditional antenatal information with preparing families to have a relationship with their baby.

As an individual, you could attend the Parenting Group Facilitator’s Training instead, which will also equip you to run our groups for parents: the Antenatal Parenting group, Postnatal Parenting Group, Postnatal Plus Parenting group and ‘Understanding your child’s behaviour’. Just make sure you have the right Facilitator’s Manual!

This training enables attendees to facilitate the group with another facilitator (two faciliatators required per group). Facilitators will need a Facilitators’ Manual each when running the group, as sharing is not feasible.

This course is evidence based (see Research).

This course can be run for your team. It is for 12 practitioners. Individuals can join in with courses run by Solihull Approach Head Office.

If your team has not completed the 2 Day Foundation Training, there is a Combined Antenatal Foundation & Antenatal Parenting Group Facilitators’ 2 Day training
