  • I loved the transition to parenthood and The New Calm Mindful birth classes with Julie. This gave me a lot of confidence with my wife in progressing with a natural birth and what to do when things do not always go as planned. I now feel equipped with dealing with MOST of what birth can throw at us.

    Matthew

  • For a woman try to achieve a nature birth, this is a great way to start to attend this course. My husband and I found it is excellent and useful. Hope more women can get what they need from the courses.

    Lina

  • This taught us so many positive things to not only use at birth but for everyday life. Would recommend to everyone!

    Analissa

  • This is the most valuable course you will ever do. I strongly recommend that everyone do it. Not only will you and your partner learn so much that you can't pick up in books, but Julie is so willing to answer even the strangest questions with so much joy. I am now really looking forward to giving birth without any fear. Thanks Julie!

    Lindsey

Our focus is on looking after a little newborn baby during the first 12 weeks in a very positive way.

Julie offers a special follow up service to those who have attended her courses: baby care support service

There is a lovely social aspect to these courses as well, pregnant couples often chat and laugh together about all sorts of aspects of pregnancy and their experiences during these months which can be very amusing to share amongst others who understand and are going through similar journeys. Groups enjoy the opportunity to chat during break times to get to know each other, swap good helpful ideas and shopping for baby tips.

The atmosphere here at Julie's lovely home in Sylvania is stress-free and relaxed, Julie has thought of everything to make this a wonderful, interesting learning experience, with participants kicking off shoes at the door, then entering a very comfortable classroom lounge to rest on purpose designed seating comfortable for pregnant women with generous cushions.
