About the event

Why choose us to provide your antenatal & postnatal education? Good question!

what sets us apart from other providers, especially very well known & popular organisations, is that we are current registered midwives. 

Did you know a lot of providers of classes aren't?

Being registered midwives means:

* We are up to date on all current evidence & use research based infomation in our classes

* We are fully aware of the current issues in maternity services

* We are both parents ourselves so have our own personal experience

* We know how the services run so can teach you & advise you using first hand experience

* We know the pathways and policies and can help you navigate them

* We don't just focus on normal low risk vaginal deliveries, we cover high risk as well including caesareans

* We can help direct you to the right professionals if you want to birth or make a plan outside of the policies

As well as that, we are down to earth & funny (if we do say ourselves!) and love to teach and empower you!
