Classes to help people prepare for parenthood have been launched in Portishead.

The Nursery, in Combe Road, has started a six-week course packed with advice for people expecting a child.

The Little Ducklings Parent Prep course will provide people with a guide to parenting gadgets, feeding support and how to cope with the stress of parenthood.

There will be stay-and-play sessions for parents to attend after their baby is born.

Nursery owner, Jackie Hardie, said: “Expecting a new baby is an exciting time, but it can also be pretty overwhelming.

“While there is a lot of sensible information about birth plans and how to pack a hospital bag, there can also be too little, or too much being said about how to actually be a parent in the real world.

“Our Little Ducklings Parent Prep courses will help parents find the advice they really need.”
