the NurtureMe Prenatal Class
I’m so happy I found Deb, Linda and the team at NurtureMe. We did the prenatal course and had the best day, full of information and even felt pampered! Deb made us feel so welcome and at home in a beautifully comfortable environment. The information was broken up really nicely with good breaks. This course exceeded our expectations and as first time parents to be, my husband and I feel empowered heading into birth and the first stages of parenthood. Thank you Deb and the NurtureMe team.
The prenatal birthing class was worth every cent! The ladies were all wonderful and extremely welcoming. Lactation Linda is definitely a high light of the day and helped ease a lot of stress at the thought of breastfeeding. They have created a safe place for parents/ soon to be and encourage us all to ask questions. The class has definitely help ease my nerves and has given me so much knowledge on how to handle the new challenges of being a parent.
Couldn’t recommend Nurture me enough! Deb’s pregnancy massages are so amazing! My husband and I just recently completed a day of pre-natal classes and it was such a great day filled with lots of helpful information. With no classes on the coast anymore we were so lucky to have the opportunity to attend. Thank you to Deb and the team. Such a beautiful place at Nurture Me.
Such an amazing day from wonderful Deb, to lactation Linda to Janine couples counsellor all so full of knowledge and great useful tips! Definitely recommend for any expecting couple
