Testimonials

‘My hope for each group is that a feeling of community forms as you all start out on this journey into parenthood. Maybe some friendships will form so you can support each other well into the first year of your baby’s life and maybe even beyond. The importance of connections with others can not be under rated during such a mile stone time in your life and while living in a country other than our own.

So go on over to Birth in Holland and sign up now for the next course. I look forward to hearing from you”
