Birth Boot Camp
Our 2 day workshop is an evidence-based childbirth education program that provides you and your partner with all the tools you need to prepare for a safe, empowering and positive birth.
We are currently offering these workshops as live, online workshops via Zoom. Face-to-face workshops are being scheduled from July onwards however in the event COVID-19 restrictions do not ease or are reinstated these classes will also be delivered live, online via Zoom.
