The full course consists of five classes and my aim is to ensure that you feel comfortable, relaxed and at ease. I encourage discussions and questions in a safe and enjoyable atmosphere. Everything is explained without any medical or technical jargon. The classes are a mixture of teaching, demonstration and participation. Together we will do exercises, practise techniques, role play and watch visual material including videos. At a pace and understanding that is right for you.
If, for whatever reason, you or your partner feel the course is not for you after the first class then I am more than happy to refund the remaining course fee.
The essential content you need to know is always covered. However, everyone comes with different concerns about birth and parenting, so every course is different as I tailor it to the couple's needs. See details of what is covered in each class.

We are doing well and feeling great thank you. Loving every minute!
Labour feels like a long time ago now but looking back I feel so lucky that everything resulted in a healthy, calm, contented baby. After the initial shock that I needed to be induced there and then I felt excited and knew we were prepared and ready for whatever path it took. The only way I can think to describe it is I felt like a super hero and my birth companion was my trusty sidekick! :-) sounds cheesy but knowing my birth companion was by my side and that he had the tools to support me made me feel safe and relaxed.
