WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT DADS-TO-BE

“For me the course was a lifeline.  Previously I wasn’t sure even which questions to ask or where to look for a RELIABLE and informed answer.”

“The discussions of the birth, of baby blues, of crying and of our ongoing relationship was particular helpful.”

“I went to 3 pre-natal courses: the NHS one, an NCT one and this one – and found this course the best of the three.  I would definitely recommend it to any dads-to-be in the area."​
