We know having a new baby in a foreign country can feel overwhelming and lonely. Our Prenatal classes in Madrid are interactive and enjoyable, and you will feel respected and supported while pregnant in Madrid.

This complete course is taught by midwives experts in prenatal and postnatal care so you will learn up to date information and techniques for labour, recovery and first weeks when your baby comes, feedings, nappy changes, working with your body on a safe, respectful and effective way, as well as getting to know how local maternity systems work in Madrid.

At Bel&Mums we advocate for an empowering birth and parenting, placing a lot of importance on the mother’s mental and physical well-being. We want you to understand that you can make your choices, and feel confident about them.

Our courses are made to be intimate and to provide the best attention to your specific situation and needs, that is why we have limited places.

    Testimonials Prenatal course

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Juan M.
      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.

      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!
