Some feedback from our new parents
"Enjoyed the aura (feel) of the space, feel less alone when you’re with other people in the same boat."
"At first I was a bit nervous being a dad here, but I’m glad I came, it was really cool, and you learn what the mum will go through."
"Didn’t think about what happens after the birth – our bodies, the healing process, and parenting."
"Programme is fantastic and knowledgeable."
"I enjoyed the tutor style."
