The best decision we made during our pregnancy was to sign up to antenatal classes with Brilliant Birth Company.
The knowledge, advice and friendship we got from the weekly classes with Sonya, Lorna and Carey were exceptional and last far beyond the duration of the course.
As a couple expecting a rainbow baby after a previous traumatic premature birth, having the support of fully trained midwives to walk us through what to expect, answer questions and provide inside tips to help us through this emotional time was beyond a game changer in ensuring that when it came to our whole birth experience this time round.
Absolute angels, and we cannot recommend the Brilliant Birth Company more highly.

I absolutely loved the classes!
Just thinking about giving birth can be scary but Sonya, Carey & Lorna give you all the info in such a relaxed and friendly way you don’t feel overwhelmed or scared! Even my husband who was dreading the thought of talking & listening about labour loved it & was so excited to go each week!
All the added support of the WhatsApp group and being able to ask any questions as and when they come in is so so helpful
Thank you so much for these classes ladies!!
