"3 DVD Course which I would not hesitate to endorse and recommend.

(I also own a copy). The amount of information is amazing and the beauty of it is it is current, and up to date, can be viewed by you in the privacy of your own home at a time to suit you and your partner, for as long as you want to watch it. "

Ann McLeaod Taylor, Brisbane,Qld.

Thank you for having the initiative and sense to put together something as informative, practical and real as your DVDs. While we cannot control our birth experiences, feeling prepared certainly took away a lot of our anxiety.
