Testimonials

Happy Parents

“Cally’s course was brilliant. Being new to the area ourselves, she had invaluable knowledge on local support and services available, including the experience in hospital itself, as well as fantastic information on generally preparing for a second baby”

“It was also great to meet other mums. The WhatsApp group and continued support from both Cally and the other mums is amazing and has been so helpful as issues and questions come up since the course finished.

“Can’t recommend Cally enough, her energy & enthusiasm plus experience speaks for itself. Empowering mums and passion for supporting choice”

“I loved the course. It was just the refresher course but me personally I learnt a lot. I’m going to be a first time father and I’m so much more confident now than I was before doing this course.”

“Cally’s passion to ensure you have the most positive birth possible and go in confident, whatever birth you have planned, is inspiring and infectious. She really cares about you and your family, and I found it.”
