It was empowering and informative and full of really useful information.
We both came away feeling really well prepared for the birth of our baby with lots of practical tools to use in different circumstances.
The things that stuck with us were understanding the physiology of birth, and particularly the role that the hormones play in each stage of labour.
This is definitely a course for a couple to attend as it demystifies birth particularly for partners. It covers every aspect of birthing and all the variables and circumstances. It also takes away any fear I came away feeling like I can really do this!
Eleanor has a very knowledgeable and warm approach and explains things in a really clear way. There is plenty of practical involvement that means you actually get to practice active birthing. She provides some really useful course notes and I have been referring to them and practicing the active birthing movements to help me prepare for my impending labour.
It is an excellent course and I feel very confident about birthing thanks to Eleanor.”
