Or learn how to react in case of an emergency in our First Aid for Parents class, which is specifically designed for parents and carers of babies, younger and slightly older children. Join us if you want to get exclusive access or benefit from reduced admission fee.

"A very good friend of mine recommended the Brussels Childbirth Trust as an excellent source of reliable and useful workshops and courses to prepare for her pregnancy."

This is a one-off evening class designed for those planning or expecting to have a baby, who would like to learn how the system here in Belgium works. Participants receive a follow-up booklet packed with useful information on having a baby in Belgium.

BCT birth and parenting courses


The BCT’s comprehensive Birth & Parenting courses prepare expectant first-time parents for pregnancy, labour, delivery, and those first weeks with an infant at home. Our courses cover topics such as medical interventions, relaxation techniques, breastfeeding, and parenthood preparation.
BCT First aid for parents courses


These classes cover first aid techniques for babies (0-1 years) and children (1-12 years), such as for choking, basic life support and common first aid scenarios. They provide plenty of opportunity to practise new skills while promoting the confidence to use them should the need ever arise.


Interactive courses for parents which allow them to discover and develop new skills and practices through trial and experience.
