What participants say

Feeling relaxed and positive


"My husband and I found the antenatal class online very informative and we learnt a lot. We left the session feeling relaxed and positive. I feel much more confident as this lockdown has caused major anxiety. Both Jo and Grace were amazing and I loved how they were very very passionate."

Shout out to Grace and Jo

We both thought the class was very informative, it was also light-hearted. We feel we have enough information to go on with preparation of what's to come. Shoutout to Grace & Jo for the wonderful class.

Thank you Jo and Grace!

Thank you Jo and Grace! You both were great. We were so engaged the entire time and are feeling empowered and prepared. We have lots of amazing content to chat about and loved the focus on relationships and how the partner plays a real role in the entire process. We’d love to jump back on again in the future to touch base and stay in touch with the group.

Fun and valuable!

We enjoyed the class very much. It was very informative and useful. Both speakers were great and very knowledgeable. It was fun and valuable.

Super practical and relevant

We really enjoyed the class, thank you. We found it super practical and relevant.

Informative, Hilarious and Modern


This course is so informative and modern whilst being so funny, I was laughing away! It’s extremely accurate and doesn’t put pressure on mums to do anything a particular way or breastfeeding or labor. It surpassed a popular and expensive antenatal course I did 18months ago by a mile. This is my second pregnancy and weather your a FTM or a veteran I highly recommend this course! 5 out of 5
