PRISM five-week online antenatal course

PRISM: Postnatal Recovery Inspiration and Support for Motherhood is a new online course for women booked to give birth with maternity services at Imperial College Healthcare. The course will help you and your partner prepare for the birth of your baby. We recommend you register to attend from 28 weeks of pregnancy.

The course includes five sessions delivered online over five weeks. It is led by consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Karen Joash, consultant obstetrician Miss Jayne Terry and consultant midwife Susan Barry. Each session will cover a different topic related to giving birth, your recovery, caring for your new baby and supporting your mental wellbeing while you get to know your new baby.

The five-week course is as follows:

  • 14 May: The antenatal pathway and COVID-19
  • 21 May: The real truth about labour
  • 28 May: What to expect on the postnatal ward
  • 4 June: Physical recovery
  • 11 June: Strategies for mental wellbeing 

The first session will be held on Thursday 14 May from 10.00 to 12.00. Subsequent sessions will be held at the same time each week. You are welcome to register for individual sessions or book into all five.

Please register for the course on Eventbrite. Once you’ve registered, you will receive a link to access your first session. This course is offered free of charge, but donations to Poppy’s Fund at Imperial Health Charity are welcome.
