Throughout my career as a Midwife it has been evident that quality, current and relevant information and advice in pregnancy can make a significant difference to a couples’ experiences of pregnancy, labour and birth and their transition to life with a new family member.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time teaching NHS antenatal classes and have since gone on to develop a great range of flexible antenatal education options to suit all needs, from fully bespoke private couples sessions, mix and match workshops to full antenatal courses at an affordable price, all with an ongoing advice and support service.

 One to One sessions

These sessions are completely bespoke. Perfect for first time parents or a refresher for a second or subsequent pregnancy, a private natural therapies tutorial or to learn more about a specific area of pregnancy or birth that is particularly important to you,  From a one off two hour session to a full one-to-one private course, these are always 100% tailored to your specific needs.


Mix and match workshops

A refreshing approach to antenatal classes with a carefully compiled content of theory and practical skills specifically designed to ensure an informative, relevant, enjoyable and interactive experience. You and your birth partner will leave these workshops equipped with a great knowledge base of the chosen area/s, alongside valuable supportive tools & helpful practical skills.
Available as group or one to one sessions, attend a single workshop or combine all 3 as a full course, the choice is yours! Prices from as little as £28 per workshop or £116 for a full course*

My husband and I attended Chrissie’s birth preparation course. We had such a wonderful experience I had to recommend to others. The bespoke course was tailored to the needs of the group. There was a great balance of theory with practical exercises and advice and it has really helped us feel prepared for late pregnancy, the birth and beyond.
