Antenatal class reviews – The Daisy Foundation
Are you like me, always looking for a good set of reviews before taking the plunge?
And to be fair, choosing the right antenatal class is one of the most important choices we can make…we understand this at The Daisy Foundation, so here’s a snapshot of the reviews available on the website and individual teachers Facebook pages.
Why is your choice of antenatal classes important?
We can’t predict what one birth journey will look like from the next. So, it’s a bit like going in to the unknown, and whilst some people choose that the less they know the better, we actually know that knowledge is power when it comes to birth satisfaction and supporting mental health around birth trauma.
So in my opinion, what should feature top of your pregnancy/baby list, trumping travel systems and latest baby gadgets? Answer – BIRTH EDUCATION – Antenatal classes hands down, all day long!
Oh and let’s not forget the importance of finding the right style of class, the best content to suit you, a teacher who you vibe off of. These matter too, bit like choosing the right counsellor, you need to gel. Same for your birth education provider…a good one will offer a continuity of care and support, you need to feel comfortable with them and trust them.

“Nici has a wealth of knowledge! Non judgemental and supportive, so glad we decided to book antenatal classes through her and Daisy. Feel well informed in the run up to our due date and on speaking with others, better informed than most! Looking forward to catching up with the rest of our group when we have a tiny baby army Will use Daisy and Nici in particular for more groups when baby is born!” Anna & Jon
“I’ve done most of a term of the Daisy Birthing class with Nici, as well as the Active Birth workshop. I’ve been so impressed. My GP husband and I got a huge amount out of the workshop, and feel much more positive and prepared for the birth of our second baby, following a difficult time with our first.
I feel so much more informed this time around, despite spending a large amount last time on an NCT course. The Daisy ethos is so positive and accepting, and Nici is an amazing teacher. I would thoroughly recommend any of Nici’s classes to all expectant parents” Katie Pearce
“Would fully recommend the 6 week Daisy birthing classes to anyone who would like to understand the science behind birthing and the different options available to you. Nici is extremely supportive, a great teacher and puts the class at ease. I was part of Nici’s first group that was done through Zoom right from week 1 and it has worked well. Though not the same as meeting each other in person, we were encouraged to share how we’ve been feeling etc which has turned into a great support network especially in these days of the pandemic. My husband and I also did the Active birth workshop which was invaluable & I know he feels a lot more prepared now! Thanks Nici ” Amy McGregor
“I was recommended to Nici by my sister in law and I’m so glad. Nici very kindly organised a zoom call focusing mainly on C sections as I’ve had major anxieties over my up and coming elective section. Nici made me feel so at ease from the very beginning and I’ve come away feeling so much happier and more prepared for what’s to come. Can’t remember her enough” Sam Pool
“I did the 6 week daisy birthing course with Nici and it was excellent in preparing me for birth. The breathing exercises and relaxation was really useful. The support from Nici and the other daisy mums has also been invaluable. Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about birth in a safe supported setting” Zoe Belcher
“I did the daisy birthing class with Nici prior to having my second son. After a difficult first birth I was nervous about labour the second time the 6 week course gave me a really good insight into what happened with my first and helped me to prepare for the second. I used all the breathing techniques during my labour and found them really helpful and my second labour was a much more enjoyable experience. Nici continues to provide invaluable support to the daisy group I was a part of and we have now signed up for the daisy tinies class with her as well. Would definitely recommend the antenatal class to anyone” Laura Easter
“I would recommend Nici & The Daisy Foundation 1000x times over to anyone expecting. I attended the Active Birth Workshop, Daisy Birthing and have since taken my little one to Daisy Tinies. Nici has an amazing ability to make you feel like an old friend and I truly believe she is the reason that I was able to have an amazing birth! Her classes are the perfect mix of science and relaxation. Particularly Daisy Birthing. Best money I have ever spent and have come away with a group of lovely mum friends. I can’t thank her enough. Nici really is invaluable whilst trying to navigate being a new mum!” Sarah Witt
“Absolutely brilliant classes! As a third time mummy with long term anxiety issues I know that knowledge is key to helping me cope. Daisy classes are everything I could hope for! I’m really enjoying the birthing classes and am using lots of the movement and breathing techniques to help with relaxation and birth preparation at home. It’s making a big difference. My husband also attended the active birthing class with me and we learnt so much!! Now feeling empowered and excited about our birth experience. I cannot thank Nici enough and we highly recommend the Daisy Foundation. We hope to continue with baby classes when little one arrives too!” Kelly Marshall
