We had a wonderful experience with Michele. We attended the condensed course and the session was worth it. The session was very interactive and there were activities as well. Michele has heaps of knowledge and years of experience which made the session very useful. We walked out with lot more confidence and information. We highly recommend birthbalance, the courses they offer for pregnancy education, Especially if you are first time parents. Thanks Michele. Jaakal 2022

“Martin & I just wanted to pass on our sincere gratitude and thanks for today it was honestly amazing – more than we expected and more.  ” Angelina Sept 2021
