MBSA recommend that you attend classes before 30 weeks gestation as multiples often come early. Classes are open to all expectant parents regardless of where you are planning on birthing so you can attend the classes that work best for you.
Even if you have attended standard antenatal classes for your other children these multiple birth specific classes are quite useful.
Also note that MBSA run classes for new and expectant multiple birth dads and non-birth partners three times per year which are highly recommended. Check out our events to see when the next one will be held.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic only the Women’s and Children’s Hospital are continuing these classes which are being moved to online through the Health Direct platform. Contact Deb Rossi for information and to book. Flinders and the Lyell McEwin have cancelled their classes entirely for the time being.
Classes are held on Wednesday mornings, every month with class reunions quarterly. The sessions cover antenatal, birth, going home and breastfeeding multiples.

Classes are held on Saturdays between 9am – 3pm, every three months.
Sessions will incorporate antenatal, birth, breastfeeding multiples, settling techniques and a tour of the labour ward / special care nursery.
