Here is what couples have said about our courses:
”We have just finished an online session with Amy and it was fab! We were able to ask questions, talk to other couples and understand our birth choices. I feel so much better as I was really anxious before” Chloe F
”We really wanted a course that helped us feel more confident about birth as we were both feeling anxious and unsure about what to do, what happens and what choices we had. The course was brilliant, my partner found the techniques really helpful and they were useful for Labour and I felt a lot more relaxed and positive afterwards. We used the tips and techniques given to us and it helped us achieve a calm Birth, I’m so glad we attended” Alice and James A
”This was our second baby but we wanted to attend a course again to meet other people and also to prepare for a more positive experience as things didn’t quite work that way before. The course was great at helping reduce my anxiety and also for giving us a lightbulb moment in knowing we had choices” Claire and Tim G
“I can’t thank Amy enough for her time in helping us achieve such a wonderful birth. The whole course and her support afterwards really helped us achieve that. It was also lovely to meet new friends who we now meet every week” Kate and Mike R
