Weekend Intensive Course

Labour & Birth and Transition to Parenthood

The course was really informative and the videos were really useful. I definitely feel much more prepared for birth and having a newborn. My husband also found the course really useful and he feels a lot more confident about supporting me during labour. Highly recommend!!!
