Some things expectant parents have said about Chaya's NCT Antenatal courses:

'I just want to say thank you to Chaya for providing such a great course. Your balanced view on all types of birth / parenting / breastfeeding styles was a breath of fresh air and meant that everyone felt accepted and able to ask any question at all. In particular, I loved the fact that you emphasised that we always have choices in preparing our birth plans. This really helped me in my discussion with my midwife, I knew everything she was talking about and had already discussed it all with my partner so it made our conversation very simple! Thanks again'
