Lisolette is such a lovely warm person who inspired confidence in me. Baby number 1 is so daunting and I knew very little about the birth process but Lisolette went through all options and the process and I feel calmer knowing what to expect. Her class is so personable and I loved that approach. Thank you so much
Excellent, would highly recommended this one day course, handy to get everything done in a day, very informative and helpful! Liselotte is very calming, has answers and info to any questions you may have and puts your mind at ease. Thank you Liselotte for a great day!
Really informative class in a relaxed setting. Highly recommended.
Very clear and concise. Good balance of argument for natural vs assisted birth methods
