We are Liverpool’s Independent Provider of Antenatal and Practical Parenting Classes

At Beautiful New Beginnings we aim to support and empower parents with a range of classes and courses from pregnancy right through to school age. Whether you are pregnant, have a newborn or are established in your parenting journey, we have classes and courses to suit your needs. 

A different kind of class

How many times have you heard that there’s no instruction manual for being a parent? We have developed a range of courses that will help to support you on each stage of your parenting journey.

Take a look at what we offer…

Antenatal Courses

Our 6 week Antenatal Courses run by a range of professionals, each an expert in their field, will help you to gain all the knowledge you need about labour, birth, life with a newborn and enable you to meet other parents to be too.


Also available as an online option

Baby Massage Courses

Our one to one baby massage sessions take place in the comfort of your own home! The two hour sessions are designed to teach you the full body massage and techniques without you having to get your little one ready and out! Perfect for relaxing and boding with your little one – simply pop us a message to book a time and date that suits you and your little one best.

Baby and Children First Aid Courses 

Would you know what to do in an emergency? Would you know what to do if your child choked? If you found them unconscious, if they had a febrile convulsion? This course gives you hands on practical experience of what to do with babies and children should you ever be faced with an emergency situation. A must for all parents, carers, grandparents and anyone who looks after little ones. 1 hour Classes run on a monthly basis from West Derby Millennium Centre 7-8pm Monday evenings.  

Little You, Big You, Learning Too!

Our National Lottery Funded Classes are coming to West Derby and beyond in June! We launch on the 7th June and look forward to welcoming you to our gross motor and fine motor development sessions! Our soft play sessions will incorporate songs, action rhymes, games and sensory play to enhance children’s development. Classes will run for children aged 0-2 and 3-4. 


Community Coffee Morning 

At Beautiful New Beginnings we are passionate about creating community and our vision is that no one should have no one. Coffee Mornings will run in West Derby Millennium Centre from 9-11 am and will launch on the 26th June. Whether you’re pregnant, a parent, elderly, recently retired, new to the area, working from home or just looking for a welcoming space to share a cup of tea and a chat, you’re welcome here. We will also have support for those with PND in the form of talk support with our counsellor Clare Bowers .

Starting School Courses 

Run by Early Years Specialist Teachers Cal and Rachael, this course is designed for those parents who have children ready to start school. We will take you through the Early Years Curriculum and look at what your child needs to know by the end of the year. We then provide fun, engaging activities for you to try with your child at home to promote early reading, writing and maths development. This course is a MUST for those wanting to give their little ones a head start whilst making learning FUN!

We also have Transition to Year One classes available – 6th July at WIGWAM COFFEE SHOP 10:30-11:30

Stay and Play Sessions 

At Beautiful New Beginnings our aim is to create community. Our Stay and Play sessions which run every Thursday in Rainhill and Friday in West Derby do just this! Suitable from birth to pre-school it’s an incredible way for local families to connect over tea, toast and parenting stories. There’s plenty of activities to suit all ages, from our craft activities, to the bouncy castle and parachute games. You would be so welcome to drop in and join us!

What our parents say about us…

“The most special thing about beautiful new beginnings is Cal herself, she is a warm and kind person who made me feel very at ease about starting my new journey as a mum. We have continued contact even now when my little girl is 12 weeks old. The classes are informative and made me feel so much more prepared for our little angel. I would definitely recommend.” Helena 

We had a fabulous afternoon, Jessica and mummy loved the Easter crafts and massage, we can’t wait for next week’s session.” Clare 

” Cannot recommend these antenatal courses enough!
The course was very informative and helped me fully prepare for becoming a first time mum. Sessions included first aid with St. John’s ambulance , labour information with a midwife and fitness during pregnancy . 
The support I have received both during the course and after it has been amazing . Thank you so much for everything!” Leanne 

If homework club could run 5 days a week we would be there! Riley loves coming each week and has made incredible progress. Thank you so much.” Lauren   

“Baby Massage has been wonderful, a really relaxed session which has helped my baby with his colic and wind immensely. I would highly recommend the classes and the price was incredible. A course so good we have done it twice! Thank you.” Vickie
