A Comparison with the Leading Provider

I wanted to take an opportunity to write a review to say how great I found the Doctor and Daughter antenatal course.  This is my first pregnancy and I have read a lot of books in preparation but I also wanted to do antenatal classes with my husband so that he feels more involved, prepared and clued up about all the changes that will occur in my body and in our life as we know it. The classes were recommended to me by a friend and so we signed up without hesitation and have no regrets as we both got […]

Interview with Anna Tizard from Tiba & Marl

Interview with the Lovely Anna Tizard who is a co-founder of TIBA & MARL – who make THE COOLEST Baby Change Bags around! What was your favourite part of being pregnant? I loved the excitement of knowing I was going to have my very own baby!! I loved my tummy growing, and weirdly I also loved the (superficial i know!) challenge of trying to still wear nice clothes, and try to style out the bump (I worked in a fashion office – I wouldn’t just wear leggings!!) What was the worst bit about being pregnant? I’m pretty sure 99% of […]

One of our recent clients and her husband have sent us a great review of our course. Thank you Margret and Nick! I wanted to take an opportunity to write a review to say how great I found the Doctor and Daughter course.  This is my second pregnancy and the Doctor and daughter team weren’t around at the time I was having my first. I was very impressed with their website and the level of detail it provided I was very keen to take this course, and I was not disappointed. To give a quick summary, the course was spread out over 6 sessions (7 including a first aid course), most sessions […]

If money is a little tight…

When I first fell pregnant, I was running my own business and had just had a very bad year financially..we had just moved house, money was tight and suddenly it felt like the wrong time to be starting a new family. People will try and tell you that babies are cheap, they don’t really need anything except their mother’s love..blah blah .. but we all know that’s not really true! Even if you are lucky enough to be able to borrow the big money pieces, like the buggy and the bouncer and the sling, there are still so many little […]
