We run courses in Brighton and Hove for men expecting their first babies.
Meeting in pubs, our courses help men grow the confidence, skills and knowledge needed to be the best dads they can be, from birth to first birthday.
Our next course starts on September 13th for men expecting babies in October, November and December. Each course has a maximum of eight participants - book your place now.
Practical, relaxed and interactive - what we do.
Before your baby is born we meet for 3 evenings at The Eagle Pub. We cover practical skills like how to change a nappy and feed a baby, talk about what to expect at the birth and how you can be a supportive birth partner and look at wider topics like how your baby will develop over the first year. It's up-front, practical and BS-free. We make lots of time for questions and chat as you get to know other men in the same boat as you. We also get experienced dads from your area along to share stories of their first days of fatherhood. For more detail view our course content here.
Men who come on the course love it!
"Amazing", "went away feeling enthusiastic and prepared for fatherhood", "I recommend it unreservedly", "educational but also just a lot of fun" are just a few of the many comments we could have chosen. You can read more comments on our testimonials page.
Grow in confidence, skills and knowledge
You will go away more confident about coming a dad, with a whole range of new skills that will be invaluable in the first weeks and months of parenthood and with a ready-made support network of other men in the same boat as you. I set up the course in response to my own experiences of becoming a dad and in the belief that becoming a dad can not only be a hugely positive and fun experience but also that an engaged and active dad can make an incredibly positive impact in the life of their little one. We want to help men find their own paths and take positive steps towards this. And as if all that weren't enough you'll also go away with a handy parenting how-to handbook, loads of practical information and a bunch of discounts for other local antenatal and parenting activities for both you and your partner.
