Maternity School

Hello! I am Belén, midwife and pediatric nurse

For 8 years now, I have worked in many of the best obstetric hospitals in central London. I have helped hundreds of women throughout their pregnancies, labours and first weeks after birth. I am also an experienced pediatric nurse and my care is focused on newborns.

My biggest passion is helping women like you to prepare for labour and parenthood.

My classes and maternity preparation courses follow five principles:

To ensure the best quality, the courses are in small groups. You also have the possibility to make the preparations privately.

Unlike other antenatal courses, this is interactive and dynamic.

Being an experienced midwife and pediatric nurse helps me to provide with the best quality and useful information.

You can count on me throughout the process if you have any doubts.

You will be able to make friends with other parents in your same situation and build a support network so that you will always feel understood.

Bel&Mums - Maternity School in Madrid and London


We are aware that many women in Madrid or in London do not speak the language and we believe it is important to be able to participate in these courses being able to express themselves in the language that makes them feel more comfortable.


In order to be well prepared to give birth and for motherhood, it is also important to understand how the local system works, avoiding surprises that could spoil your experience.

I hope that Bel&Mums will make you feel better supported and enables you to become more confident about labour, birth, and parenthood whilst enjoying, getting involved and making friends.

  • I highly recommend Bel&Mums’ antenatal course. I took it with my husband and we both found it very interesting. Belén provided us with very useful information about the NHS system, preparation to birth, stages of labour and baby care. She answered all of our questions and we now feel a lot more confident for the arrival of our baby.
  • Took a 3 hr first aid class with Belen and found it very interesting and well structured, we learned a lot.
  • Amazing caring midwife with years of experience. Me and my husband did the prenatal course with her and we absolutely loved it, I felt much better prepared and ready for the delivery of my son, knowing what to do and what to expect gave me confidence. I did also with Bel the first aid course for babies, another must do to feel secure in case of an emergency.

    Bel is really wonderful and knowledgeable. We took private classes with her and the content was very much tailored to what we wanted to talk about and discuss. As first time parents she made us feel very comfortable and helped us a lot with the whole preparation for having a baby and post baby care of mother/child. I would highly recommend Bel for any consulting services and will be using her help again when the little one arrives. The good part is she stays in touch with for any further questions or doubts even after the classes so it's always great to get back to her with any doubts or query.

    As first time parents, questions and doubts are more than ever. We took Belen's antenatal course as we were thinking we were not ready for our first baby.

We can only say that it has been one of our best decisions ever. Belen walked us through all the stages: - preparation to labour, labour and baby's care once been birth- and explained and clarified everything in detail, stopping and answering all questions whenever needed. Being completely honest, I think we are now ready for what is coming.

We only have good words for Belen, she is a high profile professional and takes care of every detail thus we would recommend anyone with the same concerns we had to take Belen's courses.

    We had three of Bel's courses (labour & maternity, breastfeeding and first aid) and absolutely loved them. It really helped us to understand the whole birth experience and be better prepared as a result. Bel has a fantastic knowledge of NHS procedures and she will help you to achieve the best possible experience. She is a great communicator and very friendly, making it a super enjoyable experience. She was also very accommodating and available to answer any queries even following the birth of our child. Overall, her courses are a must if you want to have a good understanding of all that's coming!

    My wife and I just took the antenatal preparation induction even though we already have a 2 years old child. I have to say we were extremely impressed with the quality and level of detail of the contain. I do encourage everybody to take this course despite previous experiences. Thanks Belen, you are a superstar!

    My husband and I attended the First Aid Course for babies in London and it was great! We learnt so much and I now feel we have the confidence to cope with an emergency - which we hope that we will never need to use! 
It was very enjoyable & highly recommended course for everyone but especially for all PARENTS! 
Thank you again Belen!
