Client testimonials

I’ve watched the videos and found them to be incredibly informative. It was lovely to be able to watch them in the comfort of my own home with a cup of tea and at a pace that suited me - some of the benefits of taking a digital workshop
 
You have a very reassuring , soothing voice that is easy to listen to and that put me immediately at ease. I was left wanting to watch more which is always a good sign!
 
What I also like about the digital workshop is that you can watch the videos as many times as you like throughout your pregnancy so as you get nearer to the birth you can pop the video on and remind yourself of what you’ve learnt, a benefit of choosing digital over a face to face class

Frequently Asked questions

 

You will be sent a link to log in with a password. The course will be sent out as one module a week so you will have plenty of time to complete it. If you need the course materials last minute let me know and we can schedule delivery of materials to suit your needs.

You can start the course as early as you wish after 20 weeks as its yours to keep once purchased so you can go back over the materials time and time again which is a huge advantage over a face to face course where you may only retain some of the information ( you know about pregnancy brain..right !)

As you can work through all the materials in one day if necessary then as late as you need them!

This is a great question. I have this covered as we will be holding weekly live video sessions in a zoom room ( all you do is press  on a link that I will send you by email) and it's as if we are in the same room together. In addition you will be invited into our facebook group so there will be lots of daily support which is much much more than you get from current face to face birth classes.

There are huge benefits to this course including the number one benefit which is that it is delivered right into your email inbox by an experienced delivery suite midwife that has attended over 700 births. You can access the course anytime any place via a laptop or tablet and watch as little or as much as you want to, dependent on your energy and concentration levels. It's the only course on the market that covers all of this depth of subject matter and totally prepares you for everything.  

many couples work through this BEFORE their NCT classes too to give them a good grounding however in reality this course is the ONLY preparation that you will need 

However, and most importantly this course prepares you for the best birth experience possible, whatever the mode of birth.

Well here are some more advantages. Everything is covered ALL in one programme so that you don't have to take a mix and match approach to your birth preparation with NCT for birth then Hypnobirthing from another provider and then How to care for your newborn baby from another one, and still left wondering have you done enough preparation . Also i have found that in 11 years of delivering face to face courses, couples are tired after work when we conduct evening classes and sometimes due to work pressure, shift work or time issues they just cannot make the face to face classes at all so end up not doing any birth classes which leaves them vulnerable to intervention if they are unclear as to what the process involves.

We aim to exceed your expectations with this programme.

If you are not 100% happy with the content we will refund you fully.
