If you and your partner have busy schedules, or you left your antenatal education a bit too late, our Express Babies and Beyond class is perfect for you. We’ve packed our traditional antenatal class into a compact format that covers the same essential topics about pregnancy, birth and beyond – all during one Saturday.
This antenatal class is given by our Annerley Midwives.
Pregnant women and their birth partners
6.5-hour workshop (1 Saturday)
Unlimited access to our Babies and Beyond videos
HKD $4,900 per couple
Traditional antenatal class; everything you need to know. Labour and birth, natural and assisted, caesarean-section and epidural, drugs, complications, postnatal period, baby care and breastfeeding.
When attending group classes, please wear clothing that you are comfortable moving around in, practising positions and massage, squatting, etc. Partners are welcome and encouraged to attend. They will learn ways to be a part of the birth as much as they wish.
You can choose to follow up your course with a 30-minute private birth planning session with one of our experienced, registered midwives. At a discounted price of HK$500 – if you have attended one of our antenatal courses. Regular price: HK$950.
Our Birth Breathing classes are an invaluable addition to your antenatal education – for women only. A one-off session held on Wednesday lunchtimes, and very useful to do after your antenatal classes in preparation for your labour.
In the beginning, I questioned what we would be doing in class as I felt the videos gave all the info we needed, but on reflection, it became clear that the videos were just a starting point - the beauty of the classes was 2 whole hours of questions answered by experts who were honest and warm. As I'm sure you hear all the time, doctors appointments in HK are rushed and I never really feel like they have time for all my questions - let alone the 'silly' ones I don't even dare to ask. Yet at the Annerley classes, these questions were never deemed as silly or time-wasting - and attention was paid to every question or concern, no matter how trivial we may have thought it was.
With our first new addition to our family on the way and no idea what to expect, we signed up for Annerley's 4-week "Babies and Beyond" prenatal course. The course was everything we could have hoped for, covering every possible topic you could think of and offering very practical solutions to the very wide variety of challenges that being pregnant and having a newborn can throw at you. Over and above learning about giving birth and dealing with the first few weeks of parenthood, one of the biggest benefits to signing up for the course was being able to meet other couples going through all of the same emotions and concerns that we had been struggling through for weeks before. As a family, we could not be happier that we opted for Annerley, and we couldn't recommend their care highly enough.

To the incredible team at Annerley. Thank you so much to you all for the amazing care and support you gave us throughout our pregnancy journey. From day one you made us feel so welcome! We couldn't be more pleased with the quality of care we received along the way. My husband and I found the 'Babies and Beyond' informative and helpful and gave us opportunities to meet other lovely parents-to-be in a relaxed and fun way! With Annerley support, alongside the support of our private doctor, we have always felt like we were in the best hands and we couldn't have asked for a more sensitive, nurturing and caring service.

Thank you so much for all your help and support. We had relocated to Hong Kong and had no idea where to start! Fortunately, the Annerley team helped alleviate our anxieties and fears. The home visits were literally a life-saver and the breastfeeding assistance was fantastic. There is no way we would still be breastfeeding after five months, had it not been for the wonderful help. Our gorgeous boy is thriving and the Annerley team played a big part! Thanks again!
