Expectant mums and dads in Skelmersdale can now sign up for lessons in parenthood.
A new programme of Parentcraft Classes has been launched in the town to provide first time parents with support and advice.
The four-week courses will take place on Tuesday afternoons between 1.30pm and 3pm. They will alternate between three venues - the First Steps Children's Centre, St John's Children's Centre and Park Children's Centre.
Run by midwives and health visitors, the antenatal classes will cover all aspects of pregnancy, birth and looking after a new baby.
Health visitor Amanda Claeys said: "The course provides a step by step guide to pregnancy, birth and beyond. All the basics are covered including labour, pain relief, bringing baby home and feeding. It's a great way to learn the basics and meet other expectant parents in the area."
Anyone who wishes to book a place on the Parentcraft Classes should call Park Children's Centre on 01695 554535.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
