What a fantastic course! We really looked forward to the sessions and got so much out of it. We feel much better prepared for labour and caring for our baby and have met a lovely group of people in the process. It actually worked brilliantly online too.

We have had the benefit of learning from NCT and meeting some great families in the process. We were dubious about how helpful an online version could be but were pleasantly surprised. Our course leader was fantastic and super approachable. The accompanying WhatsApp group has provided an extra opportunity to build relationships and share ideas

I really enjoyed the online course. Our instructor was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and I feel much more confident about birth and taking care of baby. I feel like we learned how to make informed and empowered decisions, and how to advocate for ourselves and our baby based on scientific evidence.
