We learnt so much from Chantel's prenatal class that is so important in today's modern childbirth context, i.e. on having the right conversations with your partner, gynae, healthcare provider etc. Biggest takeaway from her prenatal class (as opposed to say other classes that teaches you fundamentals of bathing a child or breastfeeding) etc., is that it prepares you to be a *parent* and not that of a caregiver!

We had an incredible time engaging Chantel for private sessions for our prenatal prep course. I wasn’t feeling well at that time and was concerned about group sessions, Chantel came to our place and made it feasible for us to learn in the comfort of our home. She’s resourceful, extremely patient and compassionate, with humour too! I love her vibes and she has solid touches that helps my body to feel at ease when she was demonstrating to my hubby how to massage me. In her presence, we felt safe and comfortable. Thank you, Chantel

Attending the 2-day prenatal class with Chantel was definitely one of the best decisions my husband and I made before our baby arrived. As first time parents living far from our families we received a lot of information that made us feel much more confident and prepared when the big day arrived. We also loved the fact that the course not only taught us technical and practical knowledge but prepared us mentally to become parents. I was looking for a more natural approach for giving birth and Chantel clearly explained the benefits of this, and how to make sure our voices would be heard in the hospital.

We attended the Blooming Births workshop. I must admit it was one of the most enriching experiences. Chantel is very knowledgeable and professional. She changed our perspective of childbirth.

The topics covered during the class are very relevant and Chantel has planned it well. Thanks Chantel. Highly recommend the class to all would be parents. Go for it!!!!

Chantel, from the moment you enter her space you are welcomed with a warm and open heart. Her deep levels of experience take you through what to expect, from gushes of blood, breaking waters, sore nipples, how to manage busy nurses and strong willed doctors, to a flowering an*us All this is covered with humour and respect. A must for any expectant mother and nervous father. Mark and Fei.

My wife and I attended the pre natal class “Childbirth with Love”. There is a lot of information out there but Chantel helps to put all that into a local context and gives relevance to the information. With her experience, she could even dispense hospital and sometimes doctor specific advice. At the end of the sessions, we felt more empowered and confident as we better knew what to expect (or in some cases what not expect), what kind of a birth plan we would like and also what are within our rights to request when it comes to our birth plan. We would definitely recommend this class to all expecting parents
