Competition Time…Celebrating Our 1 Year Anniversary With A 96% Vaginal Birth Rate!

Wow what a fantastic year so far…Sam and I have had the pleasure of guiding so many expectant parents and lovely couples through the preparation of one of the most exciting but daunting times of their lives and what fun we have had! The feedback so far has quite honestly been overwhelming and we continue to grow day by day, even now venturing into the unknown territory (for a midwife) of YouTube… eek. We are so excited and proud that we have achieved a 96% vaginal birth rate that we are offering 5 lucky couples a 50% discount on our November or December 2017 classes. All you have to do is leave you details on our contact form with COMPETITION TIME as your message and we’ll enter you into our competition. Our free workshops also seem to be taking off well and we have lots of little projects on the go that I’m sure you will all be hearing about soon so please keep an eye on our FB page or events.
