As owner of Antenatal Education for Mummas & Beans in Dorking and Reigate, I deliver judgement-free, midwife devised birth education courses for first time parents of those growing their family. All the information is up-to-date and has been enjoyed by hundreds of parents across the UK.
My purpose as your antenatal teacher is to give you and your birth partner a good education in labour and birth so you feel prepared and can make informed decisions with your care team on the day. We don’t believe that there is a single right way to give birth. But we do believe that by being informed and feeling actively involved in your baby’s birth you’re more likely to have a positive birth experience.
I am FEDANT accredited and fully insured.
