Birth Preparation Workshop

Birth Preparation Workshop East LondonJoin our bespoke Birth Preparation Workshop for pregnant women and their birth partners.  Be emersed in effective, helpful techniques you and your birth partner can employ to support you in childbirth.

Research shows that women value and benefit from the presence of a support person in childbirth – birth partner’s plays a valuable role.
