Online antenatal education

Collection of baby care essentials

Becoming a parent, whether it’s your first time or to the newest addition to your family, can be one of the most rewarding yet challenging times of your life.

At UHDB, it is important to us that your needs are being met, so we have developed free online antenatal education resources and sessions to support you to have a positive, informed and empowered pregnancy, birth and postnatal period.

How To Access Online Resources

You can view the online antenatal education resources either via this webpage through the links in the ‘Topics Covered’ tab below, or via the HealthZone UK App,   which can be accessed by downloading the app for free from the App Store​ or Google Play to your personal device.

Once downloaded, you will need to select the UHDB – Maternity App when opening it for the first time.

The online antenatal education resources are located under the ‘antenatal’ tile, and offer a range of topics for you to access in your own time and pace. These resources can be shared with your partners and birth supporters to increase their awareness.

Topics Covered

Midwives, obstetricians, and maternity support workers from across the UHDB maternity team, have produced these online resources to watch at your own pace and convenience.

Following our merger, we are continuously reviewing our services and care provision delivered across all of our sites. Please bear with us as there may be some small discrepancies between our Derby and Burton Sites. We are working hard to align our services and ensure that all care provided is equitable to our maternity patients.
