Here’s what people are saying: Thanks so much for the course on Sat. Both Pete and I got a lot out of it. The booklet and labour card are great too as I have browsed through them both to remind me of what we did. I actually loved that it was a small group as it felt very comfortable and was easier to ask questions and to chat to the other couple who had been through it before. I found the whole afternoon very calming and reassuring and it made me feel more confident about facing childbirth. I really want to try to experience childbirth in a positive way and your practical ideas and down to earth approach has helped to alleviate my anxiety. Di

We really enjoyed and got a lot out of your course.  It was informative, practical and realistic about what to expect. You obviously are very knowledgeable about childbirth and raising children. I think the flexiblity you showed in discussing our birthing options was refreshing as lots of practioners we have come across have very firm views about how we should birth our babies. Megan
