This course is the most amazing combination of useful information about birth and practical techniques. I loved that the course felt very personalised, even in a group setting. Lots of information is given but in a very structured way, and the course setting is so relaxed which enables everyone to ask questions at any time, and which Elise addressed extremely well. I now feel excited about birth - I am genuinely not worried about it at all!


I feel I have all the knowledge I could possibly need before giving birth which will enable me to have a positive experience, no matter what happens.
