Personal, relaxed and individual antenatal classes held in your own home
Me and my husband are first time parents and all the things regarding having a baby are naturally very new to us. Louise has explained everything to us in her private classes and we found it so helpful, clear and very informative! I now feel much calmer and more confident about the labour and postnatal care.Louise also answers my emails when there is something I would like to ask about which is so helpful. What I really like about the lessons is that she explains all options of the labour and lets you decide. At my previous NCT classes, the teachers only promoted hypnobirth and home birth so I felt like a coward that I even considered epidural and labour ward and I didn't want to speak up and went home frustrated. Louise ressured me that it is not a weakness and that I don't have to feel that way at all. She provided lots of examples of different births from her own experience, what the plan was and how they turned out and it really helped and I feel much more confident.Thank you very much for both of us!

Me and James would like to say a very big thank you for all your advice and support you've given us through the latter part of this pregnancy. The antenatal meeting at our home made my partner feel at ease for asking questions he probably wouldn't of in front of lots of people. I wasn't feeling well so it also helped as I was able to relax more. We felt much more confident about how the labour could go and our options. You brought great resources to help us understand everything we were taught from stages of labour, pain relief and helpful lists of what to take to the hospital. You since have always been there if I've ever needed advice and everytime you've been right on conditions that have arisen and have in a calm and encouraging way pointed me in the right direction when my own midwife hasn't been about to do so. It's been really reassuring having someone with experience and their heart in the right place through this new journey we've been through. You obviously love what you do and the maternal side you have shines through when it comes to caring for others babies. This week I find out when I will be induced due to late gestational diabetes. Thank you for all your concern and being there even after the home class. The gentle teaching and pack you brought and went through has information we can look back on now. We never received anything like this from our own antenatal provider so it's been really really helpful. Thank you for going above and beyond. Jemma, James and little man are very grateful and we won't forget. X

- Louise is super friendly and approachable and we are so glad we chose her over a group class. The main benefit of choosing Louise over a group class is that it was catered to us. We spent longer on the areas we felt we wanted to know more about and it allowed us to ask all the questions we wanted without feeling silly. Louise was also very flexible in how she delivered the class which meant it worked around us. Louise made everything really clear and simple to understand and made us feel so much more at ease with what was to come. She also continued to answer any questions we had months later and always replied quickly. I would highly recommend Louise to anyone who is looking to take antenatal classes.

- If you are looking for some independent antenatal advice definitely try Louise's Antenatal Classes. Louise is a good friend of mine, she's based in St Albans and seven years ago we invested in her classes instead of pursuing NCT. It was a personal preference and the knowledge and advice we received was brilliant. 3 children later and I think it's about time I returned the favour for all the help she has given us!

- Louise was able to make a nervous first time mum feel a bit less nervous! She was open and honest about what to expect and able to answer all of our questions. I'd happily recommend Louise as she was calm, very knowledgeable and reassuring
