Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Antenatal classes

Our maternity unit at Hôpital de La Tour offers antenatal classes to support you as much as possible on your pregnancy journey. We cover a wide range of topics, from giving birth and what to expect during labor and delivery, to looking after yourself and your newborn baby. Our classes also include physical exercise sessions and a tour of our maternity unit. We also offer our antenatal classes in English.

Who is it for?

All mothers-to-be (whether you have chosen to have your baby at Hôpital de La Tour or at another facility) and partners.
