Pregnant women at Birth Prep with Joy Antenatal Course

 ... on your pregnancy. With more than 17 years of experience, supporting 1000s of expectant parents I reject the  one-size-fits-all approach to antenatal education. Instead, I wholeheartedly embrace the unique path of every expecting parent.

Since 2007, I've created  in-person and online antenatal courses and hypnobirthing programs which are a departure from the class-room style approach. Think laughter embraces learning, all anchored in sold science-backed evidence with informed decision making at the heart of my courses.
