D.G.

Outstanding – Ive read many books on birth. In this course I found out things I’d never heard of before. Greatly valued the day, mostly liked the descriptions of links between things: stages of labour, hormones, and things to look out for. Practical positions for birthing will be practised (honest_ and the massage has already been used. Good tools and knowledge, thanks.

A relaxed an easy environment made it easy to discuss birth topics my wife and I had not spoken about… it was not just about the woman, but also included my role in all of this, and what I needed to think about, and how I could help my wife be more comfortable. I think the time and length was just about ideal, it was great having such a calm relaxed and knowledgeable teacher

It was an incredible experience for us all – [baby] included! We went with the flow and let it take its own course. As [my wife] will tell you, it wasn’t the birth plan…. but it was so good to have all the preparation we had that allowed us to still feel in control, so thank you ever so much for all your time and advice at the workshop. It really really helped me and I know all [my wife’s] work at the classes was being put into practice…. Our wee girl is a star

Thank you very much for helping our birth go very smoothly. Your classes made [my wife] feel very much at home and comfortable having a baby…. Thankyou very much for your kindness

The course has given me confidence in being able to support [my wife] to make labour and birth as comfortable and calm as it can be. I feel that I am better placed to understand what is going on during labour and birth and remain calm and supprtoive [for her]

I feel more confident about how I can help during birth. The bit I enjoyed most was positions, and how to support [my partner]… the physical stuff which you don’t get on other courses

[I enjoyed most] the different positions for support for the partner while tey were having contractions and the breathing techniques. Information sheets detailing after birth advice proved really insightful. I have taken all positives from today

I am more prepared for ensuring a natural birth: breathing, birth positions… [I valued most] giving the massage and how it affects the body and the birth process. Very good value for money – a very enjoyable experience
