Mr & Mrs G’s Story

We both felt a bit apprehensive. Our first labour went really well, but this pregnancy has seemed harder and we have been worried our “luck” might be changing. We decided to do a second active birth course with Eleanor. We did our first course 3 years ago...

Claire & Dave’s Story

We were feeling a mixture of excitement about the prospect of meeting our new baby as well as anxiety about how the birth might go, having previously experienced a difficult birth with our first son. I really warmed to Eleanor’s informal, irreverent, and down to earth...

Ms E’s testimonial

Hi Eleanor, I have a moment now and can give you the good news: our second daughter was born Wednesday evening at 10 after 24 hours of contractions via c section again, because those 24 hours got me exactly from 3 to 4cm dilated and there was no energy left in my body...

Mo and Andy’s Testimonial

We really enjoyed the birth workshop, both of us were a bit apprehensive at the start but are so pleased we did it. The workshop has been a great refresher and also has added so much additional knowledge. Eleanor is very clear and great at explaining different aspects...

Kat & Vlad’s testimonial

Before the workshop we felt lost! The workshop was awesome! We learned a lot. Very useful information was given. We really liked discovering how body works during labour, and the importance of gravity. We also found the information about upright positions, the...

Mr & Mrs A’s Testimonial

Before the workshop, we were quite apprehensive about labour. We attended the Complete Birth Knowledge Workshop at around 32 weeks pregnant, and really didn’t know what to expect, but it was a great experience! The venue was quite informal which I think worked...

Mrs L’s Birth Story & Testimonial

I had quite a long early labour stage (from 2am Thursday morning to early evening when things really kicked off after a short walk) and used the TENS throughout most of the day, and spent a lot of it sitting on the birthing ball. Waters broke at around 10pm so we...

Sara’s Testimonial

I really enjoyed the workshop and it really helped to have my birth partner there and on same page. Although we didn’t get the natural labour we hoped for the workshop gave us confidence to challenge/discuss our options and some of the techniques were still...

Danielle & Barry’s Testimonial

I was intrigued prior to the class. I had some small insight into the subject matter and wanted to find out more. I felt like I had more to learn about labour and birth before deciding whether it frightened me or not. My husband entered the class not really knowing...

Katie & Shane’s Testimonial

My previous labour and birth were straight forward. You would think this would make me feel ok about this one but no I was just really anxious it is going to be awful and really painful. After attending the active birth workshop we feel really prepared and a lot more...

Anne & Kevin’s Testimonial

Before the workshop we felt a bit apprehensive, pretty neutral, and a bit nervous of the unknown. We really enjoyed Eleanor’s active birth workshop and found it very helpful. We were a little daunted by the fact that it was a whole day long, but Eleanor’s...

Renata’s Testimonial

Before I did the workshop I felt scared and I didn’t really know what to expect. I wasn’t sure how does the labor work, what was exactly going to happen to me and my body. I had heard lots of terrifying stories from people and from internet and that made...
