"Nathan and I are first time parents and were very unsure of what to expect from childbirth and labour but both knew we were unprepared. 1/2hr appointments with the Midwifes every two weeks through the public system just didn't seem to be enough to get all the information we needed, reading many books and websites still didn't calm our nerves so we took the next step to find an alternative.
After a quick internet search we stumbled across the Babysteps website and asked to be booked into one of their regular classes, due to being very late in our pregnancy we were unable to make the next scheduled class. Sam from Babysteps however provided an alternative and suggested to come to our home and conduct a personal one on one class.
The time flew and we given so much information we were blown away. Her natural calming demeanour and witty approach gave us even more confidence to ask questions that might have been too awkward to bring up in a group session, it felt like we were talking with a very good friend.
We covered a range of subjects which included: labour, breastfeeding, what to take to the hospital, nappy changing, swaddling and so much more.
Sam and Babysteps enabled us to relax, sit back and enjoy the rest of our pregnancy without any unknown fears of childbirth and postnatal care.
We thank you so much Babysteps and Sam personally for giving us the power and knowledge to face this amazing experience head on and without fear.
Nathan and Abby"
