This class was everything I had hoped it would be. Alison and Marlene are obviously experts in their field, but also kept it fresh with a great sense of humour. It was an interesting, informative, empowering class held in an inclusive, and safe... environment. Definitely would more

Just completed their one day course, and I can not say enough great things about it! Alison and Marlene are amazing!! They are oozing with useful birthing knowledge, and are super funny and engaging. At first, I thought I would only be doing this... for my husband, but I also learned so much! If only I could shrink them and put them in my hospital bag when that big day comes. 😝read more

The Down to Birth Prenatal pre-natal course gave my husband and I the information and confidence we needed to feel prepared for labour and parenthood. We found Alison and Marlene were so knowledgeable, humorous, and matter-of-fact in their teaching.... We went through the stages of labour and what to expect and had a lot of our questions answered. There were a few videos shown in class that was helpful for us to gain an understanding in the labour process and the aftermath. The class also included some very useful information for breastfeeding and the choices couples could face during delivery. We felt good about having all the information presented to us to consider and felt it wasn't biased one way or another.My husband and I both agree that we were glad we took Alison and Marlene’s class. We feel it helped with our understanding and addressed our fears and anxiety. I highly recommend this more
