“I really enjoyed every aspect of the course. Suzanne articulated everything so beautifully and she so clearly has the years of experience and passion culminating in her work that it’s impossible for it not rub off on others. Her influence and guidance is one of the reasons I felt so confident and strong throughout my pregnancy and birthing journey. If I can instil in other women this same feeling, I’ll feel as though I’ve done the right thing! ”

This course was full of information you cannot learn from traditional childbirth education courses. It has very useful & practical information and techniques that can be applied to any work setting (private, public, homebirth etc). Fantastic course for midwives and all birth workers!
— Betina, Midwife
I was extremely satisfied with the quality of this course. The program is thorough & gripping and very well thought out for both midwives and yoga teachers. The knowledge learnt over the weekend is directly correlated with labour & birth suite roles and a great refresher.
