Feedback about Natalies' work with clients.

Natalies’ Birth Education course enabled me to have a calm pregnancy and an empowering birth experience. My husband and I both learnt a great deal about natural birthing and nurturing parenting methods.

Amy and Rob - Newcastle, NSW

Natalie taught my husband and I amazing life skills that we have applied with our parenting technique and our work.

Ben and Gem - Central Coast, NSW

The classes definitely helped me to cope…In my birth I chose some minor interventions and I felt in control and happy about my choices!

Elisa - Sydney, NSW

Natalie gave me birthing confidence and confidence as a mother. The relaxation skills I learnt – I still use today
