This combined training will introduce practitioners to the Solihull Approach on Day 1, and then on Day 2 will train them to facilitate the 5-week ‘Journey to Parenthood: Understanding pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby’ antenatal parenting group, integrating traditional antenatal information with preparing parents to have a relationship with their baby.

The Antenatal Parenting Group Facilitators’ Manual at £98 each is necessary for both facilitators running the group. However, if you are training a cohort of facilitators who will not all be running a group at the same time, you may be able to share Facilitator Manuals within a cohort to keep costs down. Please discuss this with the Solihull Approach office. You will also need an Antenatal Resource Pack at £75 each, unless you have easy access to one already.

Example content: To introduce practitioners to the Solihull Approach model as applied to working antenatally with parents and families. Applying the Solihull Approach model to the process of running an antenatal group, introduction to the Facilitator's Manual, practising running the activities.
