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
I think most second time parents will agree that working full time and wrangling a toddler does not leave much time to prepare for a newborn. The time we had with our first simply doesn’t exist with our second.
I decided that a private session with Katie would be a great way for my husband and I to connect, to spend some very much needed time thinking about our newborn and our second birthing experience.
Carving out a few hours was hard to do, but Tom and I are so glad that we did! In Tom’s words “… it’s the best thing we could have done, to help focus some energy around #2’s arrival.”
At a fraction of the cost of other mainstream birthing classes, we got a lot out of Katie’s private session. I loved especially that we were not in a class with 4 or 5 other couples, and we were able to relax and speak freely about our experiences, wants and needs.
Thank you, Katie, for inviting us into your home, hearing our unique journey with #1 and hopes for #2, for tailoring your teachings around our needs and for imparting some much needed guidance on us. We can never stop learning and Tom and I feel as ready as we can to welcome our newest edition to our family.
