Antenatal Classes




Having a baby? BCT Antenatal classes are a great way to prepare. 





All new and growing families need information and support - particularly when their own families are far away.  The BCT prenatal and postnatal services and qualified educators help parents to feel prepared and ready, physically and emotionally, from early pregnancy until their baby is one year and more.


Feel comfortable, calm and cherished through pregnancy and as a new family.

Our prenatal and postnatal services include: 

- Yoga for Pregnancy/Relax, Stretch and Breathe sessions with an informal and
friendly “ask anything” prenatal class to start each session. Sessions every
Thursday 18.00-20.00

- Group prenatal courses for mothers and their partners, full of support, information and resources to help parents feel ready for their labour, birth, feeding and postnatal life. . Course running every month except July. For course dates please get in touch.

- Mother and Baby Yoga sessions including mama stretches, relaxations and baby massage and yoga, singing and sociable group discussions. Sessions run every
Thursday 15.00-16.15 and Friday 12.30-13.45

- Baby Signing courses, helping families communicate confidently and with fun, with their pre-verbal babies. Sessions run Friday afternoons 15.00-15.45

- Family First Aid courses, comprehensive and hands on first aid courses, covering all the family essentials. Sessions every quarter. Next session 24 June.

- Ongoing and informal information and support - any questions about having a baby in Basel, please just get in touch.


All classes are held in Basel Stadt.  We recommend you register as early as possible as course places are limited and some courses fill up rapidly.
