Reviews from Helen’s BirthWright course:

…your course was the best choice we made in my pregnancy!

Helen’s course was just what we needed – she helped me let go of my fears and feel relaxed and empowered. She’s so upbeat and inspiring, I’d challenge anyone not to feel inspired after spending time with her!

…this course made me feel so much more positive about birth and the preparation for it.

Reviews for Mel:

Mel is amazing and very knowledgeable about anything baby wearing, she’s also very passionate about what she does…

Being a first time parent, I wanted a carrier that not only was comfortable but safe-and didn’t know how to where to start. Cue Mel’s sling library to the rescue!

She was so patient with me, explaining all the types of slings out there, letting me try them on and helping me find one that suited. I can highly recommend her.
