We believe that a great birth experience has nothing to do with luck but with wise childb1nh preparation and education as this is the most important time in any woman’s life, the start of her family.

Our course covers all aspects of the pregnancy and birthing journey comprising of 4 x 3 hour classes ending in a Celebratory Circle meet-up after the birth of the baby at around 6 weeks postnatal to conclude the programme.

Our classes have a lot of content and practical aspects to help integrate the relaxation exercises and make the learning more relevant Fathers are encouraged to actively participate if they choose.
