This is what parents had to say about this course:
A superbly informative and enjoyable course. Linzy is knowledgeable and supportive, she is a brilliant teacher and this has been the best thing I’ve done in my pregnancy. I feel infinitely more confident and prepared both for the birth and the arrival of our little one. Thank you! Pauline
This is a brilliant opportunity run by a fantastic teacher who is also a realistic mum. The course gives you a superb bank of knowledge and a group of friends to turn to. Hannah
Fantastic value when compared to other courses. Chris
I have already recommended this to everyone I know! Especially good for any new dads to be. I feel so much more confident going into parenthood than I did before the course. Mark
