Antenatal Worshop Review
"Being pregnant during a pandemic is no fun. The fact that you might not get the support you would get during normal times can strike some anxiety on both you and your partner.
My husband couldn’t come to my midwife appointments and NCT courses were cancelled. We read tons of books and watch videos but felt we were missing something.
We met Steph because a friend recommend us to have a chat with her. We clicked immediately: she’s sweet and honest; she has so much knowledge and you can tell she's been working with parents and babies for a really long time.
We did 2 workshops: the labour one and the first days with babies. Both are great because you have a one to one workshop with an amazing professional.
With Steph you go through everything, step by step, you understand everything and if any doubt she goes into it again until you feel confident.
The “Labour workshop” reassured me on everything I had learn; I could ask the questions I had and help me made informed decisions based on proved science. We went through my birth plan and she gave me tons of tips from her midwife point of view.
This course for my husband was everything: it made him feel he could actually do something.
He finally got to ask all his questions regarding on how he could help me, about the labour and got to practice tons of labour positions together.
The “First days with babies” is an absolute must for any parent to be. I just can speak from a first time mum point of view but it really helped us: Steph gives you tons of tips and information so you don’t feel scared of anything going on with the baby, she teaches you what you need to know to start to take care of baby and goes through everything you have at home or you are thinking of buying, what to use, what you don’t need to use etc and is tailored to you and your situation.
Having now our baby boy, I feel much more confident after the workshops and having had Steph in our life. I would recommend the workshops to any parent to be. I’m a first time mum but we’ll repeat for sure when we have another baby." Ana & Dimiri- Holland Park- London
