Bring your birth partner and spend the day together learning how to prepare for the most positive birth experience for your family.
A positive state-of-mind and informed decision-making are the most effective predictors of a truly positive birth, as remembered by a mama.
Just like an athlete trains mentally, emotionally and physically for their big event, we teach women brain training techniques for success on one of the biggest days of their lives.
