“It was a fantastic class and we are both so psyched up and motivated for the birth after it! It was really very inspiring to have that affirmation and support as it confirmed our philosophy on the birth process and how we feel about natural normalised birth.
I have recommended the antenatal classes to all my friends and colleagues who are pregnant as we got so much out of it.” ~ Bridget and Giela
