"Overall it's been a really useful introduction to all things birth and baby related. We found it useful to ask questions to clarify details on things we had learnt and read. And to understand and visualise things in a practical way. Plus you were ace too! Smart, fun, and not to serious! Thanks so much." Sarah & Theo
