Virtual classes and groups York

Virtual Pregnancy / Antenatal Classes

If you are doing an online class then please let us know about it by contacting and we’ll get you listed here too.

The Mini First Aid online course has been developed so it is interactive, confirms understanding and tests learning, making it truly engaging. Once complete, parents feel confident in applying the knowledge they have just learned. Like our award-winning practical classes, the online course covers CPR, Choking, Bumps, Burns, Breaks, Bleeding, Febrile Seizures, Meningitis and Sepsis Awareness. The course takes two hours in total, but can be paused and returned to, making it perfect if parents are distracted or called away by their little one (s).

How do I book my online course?

  • Go to our website MFA York , click the “classes for adults” link on the home page
  • Classes cost £25 pp, and are accessed via a code which will be emailed to you
  • Parents will then be encouraged to attend a practical class at a later date
  • If you are already booked on one of our face to face classes and don’t wish / are unable to attend, please contact your local trainer who can discuss postponements or online options with you.

The NSPCC Pregnancy in Mind service is for pregnant women who are experiencing anxiety and/or depression. We know that pregnancy can be an anxious time for many women and that the current circumstances are likely to be causing additional stress and uncertainty.

We are offering a groupwork programme to be delivered remotely over 6 sessions. The focus is around reducing anxiety/improving mood and providing techniques and strategies to manage this. The groups will be no more than 6 participants and will also give you the opportunity to have virtual contact with other parents to be.

We are also able to offer a one to one service remotely if you are unable to attend the group.

Once you’ve contacted us a worker will be allocated and they will be in touch to have a chat with you about your needs so they can make sure the sessions offer you the support you need.

Please get in touch to find out how we can offer you support. If a worker isn’t immediately available then someone will get back in touch as soon as possible.

Please leave your name, contact number and email address.

Are you a breastfeeding mum? Or looking to buy a gift for a new mum? If so, this is for you!

I recently launched Sienna Apparel, an eco-friendly breastfeeding clothing brand, designed to help mamas feel more like themselves, and breastfeed without the stress and faff! After finding out the hard way that most breastfeeding clothes were really frustrating, and just ‘not me’ – something so many breastfeeding mums struggle with!

  • The collection of T-Shirts, Jumpsuits and Sweatshirts are all made from super breathable and soft organic cotton, with OEKO-TEX dyes.
  • All have soft nylon zips on the chest (that cant be felt on the inside) exactly where they need to be – to make feeding a hungry baby quick and non-faffy!
  • T-Shirts and Sweatshirts are long enough to cover bums so perfect for wearing with leggings.
  • Jumpsuit has an elasticated waist so can be worn during pregnancy and right after, pockets (for snacks), and is the ultimate loungewear for lockdown/post-baby days!
  • All in bright colours to help brighten up your mood each day.

Gift Vouchers/Cards are available too for anyone who wants to treat their friends and loved ones who are having their babies during this period of lockdown/isolation – they are hand made & come with a personalised message.

So if receiving something stylish & comfy that makes breastfeeding faff free through your letterbox would perk your week up – or one of your new mum friends! – then visit to order use discount code YORK5 for £5 off your order (including sweatshirts which are in the end of season sale! )


Susan at Yoga For Modern Life is delighted to be able to offer you her yoga classes and workshops online and live, at this strange and stressful time, when social interaction as we know it has to be done differently.

You can join her live and in person for all these classes each week, via the simple Zoom app (free and super easy to use). Absolutely NO yoga equipment required. Everyone warmly welcomed.

Take time to reset your system, find some calmness and ease, and stay connected to a supportive community is really so important at this time. We need some time to resource ourselves, our bodies, minds and nervous systems. And I am so pleased I can offer you that.
