"The ChildBirth Group was amazing! It gave me a lovely insight as to what was to come over the next couple of weeks leading up to labour & birth & lots about the 4th trimester too!
The sessions are very informative & give straight, non biased, evidence based facts. This really helped me as the circumstances of my labour changed very quickly & had to end up having an emergency c-section, which of course left me quite anxious! However, I could look back at these sessions & know that I am very well informed about what is happening which helped put me at ease.
Everyone was so welcoming & friendly & were willing to go the extra mile to answer any queries or questions! I loved the fact that it was small group sessions as it allowed us all to connect on a closer level & for the class to be open about their thoughts & opinions! Would definitely recommend!"

"Hi, just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your support and for running very interesting and informative sessions. We are certainly a lot better educated after the course!
Your follow up emails have been amazing, and so handy to have the information which is easily accessible.
Thanks again for everything and we shall definitely keep you updated once our little one is here".
- Emma & Dean
"Thank you all for such a lovely antenatal class experience. You've all been so friendly and approachable and your independent and collective knowledge is such a reassurance. I feel prepared and informed about birth, feeding and the newborn stage, thank you so much"

"Sarah was brilliant and provided a practical, balanced view on every topic. Sarah did a fantastic job at keeping things evidence based so we all felt informed and supported. The thing we enjoyed least was it coming to an end!"

"Enjoyable classes without judgment. Everything was very useful, I really enjoyed the antenatal classes - Thank You!"
- Victoria & Hugo
"This antenatal course was invaluable to me. We were provided with so much information but broken down in ways that made it easy to take it all in. We all felt comfortable enough to ask questions and the activities were also great to help us get to know each other and feel that we weren't just among strangers but friends going through a similar journey. I think that going into labour was just easier when you feel that you know more or less what to expect, when you understand what the first days of being with your baby will be like, it removes some of the fear and makes you feel a lot more secure. I couldn't recommend it more"
- Blanca & Filip
"We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you very much for the sessions you did. They were all really interesting and we learnt far more than we thought we would! I'd like to particularly flag how amazing it was over zoom too. Having spent the last 6 months on zoom doing all sorts of workshops and team activities we were amazed with how engaging and well run the sessions were. Absolute credit to you, we know others who haven't had the same experience. I'm sure i'll think of questions over the coming weeks and months and we'll keep you posted on Baby ----- arrival."
"Thank you for the class, Sharon (our first aid instructor) was brilliant and it was great to learn the essentials in a relaxed environment at home! We will be back for a re-fresh once baby has grown a little and we require additional knowledge"

"Matt and I wanted to thank you for all the information and support you provided us during the classes. We have learnt so much and realised how much we didn't know! Your book recommendations have also been so helpful and I am really enjoying reading the positive birth book by Milli Hill. We live so close to each other so do say hi if you see us around! We will let you know once our baby has arrived and all the advice and knowledge you have shared really comes into practise. It is great to know about your 1 to 1 breastfeeding classes/support as well and we will definitely keep you in mind if we have any issues"
- Jasmine & Matt
"I cannot recommend this course enough. It was engaging and interactive. Sarah has a wealth of knowledge that was delivered in a relaxed and informal way. She was warm & approachable when I asked for advice after being told I would have to have a c section and non judgemental when I decided breast feeding wasn't for me.
I genuinely looked forward to the course every week and we completed it feeling empowered and informed, as well as making some lifelong mama friends. This course is a must have for any new parents!"- Leanne & Chris
"Dear Sarah, I just wanted to let you know that our baby arrived safely on **/**/**. I was hoping to labour in the pool on the MLU but he arrived quite quickly! Otherwise it was a very uncomplicated birth and we left hospital the next day and he's now really thriving.
Thank you for all your instruction and advice! Really glad we signed up to the classes and really pleased we have bonded as a group".
- Jane & Mike
"We had no idea on what to expect with antenatal classes and had heard mixed reviews on antenatal classes in general. Both myself and my partner thought Sarah was just fabulous. Incredibly knowledgeable and such a lovely, warm approach to every session. We both came away feeling empowered and informed going into labour, and reassured and up skilled as we enter parenthood. Thank you Sarah!"
- Hannah & Ross
"Sarah we just wanted to say thanks so much for all your support and advice in our antenatal classes. Our son was born after a 12 hour labour with just gas and air into a birthing pool. And you were so right, the tens machine totally got me through!"
- Abigail & Tommy
"Sarah was fantastic, positive but realistic, and I felt well informed by the end of the course. Thank you"
