TESTIMONIALS

Emma was friendly and welcoming.

Me and my partner found the atenatal classes were very informative, providing us with all the knowlegde and tools before welcoming our baby into the world. Emma was very friendly and welcoming aswell as being very professional. We choose these atenatal classes over the standard nct ones as they were more personal and set over a 5 week period which suited our needs better. We also enjoyed the smaller group and liked the idea of supporting a local business. A smaller group has meant we have stayed in touch and become good friends with the rest of the couples on the course. We would definitely recommend Birth Bump and Beyond to all our friends, family and work colleagues.

We keep recommending it to everyone.

We can't thank Emma enough for everything she did to help and support us with the training and preparation with our first pregnancy/birth of our son - we keep recommending it to everyone and truly believe that is the reason we had the perfect labour we had!

Thank You

Thank you very much for a hugely informative course! We feel much more prepared now.

Extremely Engaging!

We really found the course extremely engaging and informative. Feel very well prepared without knowing how unprepared we were before!

We graduated from baby school!

We absolutely loved the course, as first time parents it can be overwhelming with different books, websites and advice. This course covered everything we actually need to know and by the last session we felt much more prepared for baby’s arrival! We felt like we’d graduated from baby school ready to put everything into practice!

We really enjoyed the class.

My wife and I would strongly recommend Bump, Birth and Beyond, Horsham. Emma has been a massive help with information in the lead up to the birth of our first child and with advice afterwards. We really enjoyed the classes and are still in touch with the group who we can share and ask advice of.

No substitute for this course.

I would absolutely recommend the bump, birth and beyond antenatal course. I had read a lot online and also attended an nhs class but I would not have felt anywhere near as calm and prepared for the last few weeks of my pregnancy, labour, birth and the first days with our new baby if we hadn’t been to Emma’s classes. There’s no substitute for 12 hours with a practising midwife and being able to ask any questions. We looked forward to the class every week, partners were really included, the setting was cosy and comfortable and Emma was a friendly, caring face. It was great to meet other expectant parents too!

Really good information & support

Really good information and support! We are now looking into Hypnobirthing, thinking about our decisions more and doing our pelvic floor exercises. We found the breastfeeding session really good.

10 out of 10! Would recommend!

Emma was really great at explaining each topic and made our sessions really interesting and easy to follow. Catered really well to current circumstances, and always ready to help and offer support when needed. 10/10 would recommend!

A great way to meet new parents on a informative course which helped us on the adventure of becoming parents. Emma led the course brilliantly and It was very helpful being able to find out details about the local maternity services prior to giving birth

Excellent Antenatal Classes

My partner and I completed the antenatal course with Emma in November; a month or so before our due date. We had explored the different options I.e NCT or this course and felt that Emma’s sessions would be more hands on and personal. We also wanted to attend a course to understand the basics in all areas from pre to post birth, whilst making some new friends along the way. Emma did not let us down in this regard and we found the course really helpful, lighthearted and enjoyable. She would always be happy to answer queries, & we never felt silly for asking the simplest of questions. Having now had our baby ¬ previously knowing a lot about newborns, we have found the guidance invaluable.
We also took part in the hypnobirthing add on, and I am very pleased to say that it really helped me through labour, the breathing techniques and affirmations meant I was lucky and needed minimal pain relief. It also helped my partner feel involved which we know can often be very difficult.
We would like to thank Emma for her guidance and would highly recommend in the future.

The course is great!

The course was invaluable in getting us prepared for the birth, helping us to understand the language and concepts that we may encounter.

Whilst it is impossible to predict the birth process, we were both much better prepared because of the topics raised in the course, and felt more in control as a result.

Emma delivered the course with warmth and confidence, and was always happy to answer questions raised. As a working midwife she went beyond expectations and even saw us in Horsham Hospital before the birth of our baby.

I would highly recommend the course to anyone expecting, if you are looking for a complete package of learning about pregnancy, birth and the first time experiences you have as new parents.

First time parents in a pandemic!

As first time parents to be, in the middle of a pandemic, we knew we wanted to attend antenatal classes but knew they couldn’t be in person. We wanted to learn about birth and caring for a newborn, as well as meet other parents to be in the local area.

The Birth Bump and Beyond class was perfectly adapted to be online and we looked forward to the sessions each week. We learned so much about labour, birth and looking after a new baby which gave us the confidence we needed. We also met two other couples who were due around the same time as us and we have since all met up with babies in tow! Emma is so approachable and knowledgable. We can’t thank her enough for all of her help and would really recommend the course to others!

So worth the money!

We completed the antenatal classes with Emma in Horsham prior to the arrival of our little girl in Jan 2021.
Emma’s expertise and knowledge were second to none and the course really helped equip us with knowledge around what was to come. Emma was warm, friendly and no question was too silly! Emma even took time to answer some individual questions via WhatsApp on non-urgent matters antenatally and when little one had arrived too! It was so useful to have Emma’s support!
We were in between lockdowns so did a mixture of zoom classes and face to face.

Emma introducing us to a network of expectant parents, all due around the same time - was the most valuable resource. Especially during lockdown when all you could do was go for a walk!
My little one is turning one and I still see the group frequently!

I shout about BBB to whoever will listen and I have recommended the course to two of my friends who were expecting babies. If you are in two minds, do it! You won’t regret it! ☺️. Thank you Emma!!
