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 […]

A REALLY REALLY REALLY Good Review!

We are really pleased to be able to share this brilliant review with you!   Beth Underhay who blogs for Jiggery Bloggery  attended our classes last month and this is what she had to say!!!   Doctor and Daughter – the fabbest antenatal classes in town Are you sitting comfortably? (Good, ‘cos it’s a long ‘un.) Then I’ll begin…  I think I’ve mentioned before that we did some antenatal classes to help us prepare for the advent of our new lives as parents. We’re bloody glad we did, because without them we’d be more than a little clueless, and we’re […]

A Second Time Mum Reviews The Doctor and Daughter Antenatal Classes

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 […]

Prolapse – baby 7 weeks old.

I had my baby 7 weeks ago and have noticed a prolapse (possibly bladder & bowel) which protrudes slightly at times.  I have an appointment with my ob/gyn but would like your opinion on whether there is likely to be some improvement with time & when I stop breastfeeding.  Or am I looking at surgery? It is far too soon to predict You can expect a considerable improvement with the passage of time , regaining your normal pre pregnancy weight , pelvic floor exercises and further improvement when your hormones return to normal after stopping breast feeding . So often […]

Antenatal Class Testimonials!

Sorry if it’s a bit boasty..But we just wanted to share some of the great feedback we have been receiving! About the Course Content I think it was brilliant, there was enough both for women and partners and a good balance between emotional, practical and medical information. Content was comprehensive without being overwhelming. Really great balance of ‘real’ perspective i.e without sugar coating but lots of positivity about ‘you can do this’ and you will survive! I found it extremely helpful and reassuring. Great advice from two very experienced people in two different areas. All questions were answered and feel […]

Guilt Free Bottle Feeding

Madeleine Morris – co author of Guilt Free Bottle Feeding explains what prompted her and paediatrician Dr Sasha Howard to write the book. When I look at Doctor and Daughter it takes me back to those exhilarating, exhausting first days of motherhood.  So many questions!  So many answers to those questions and none of them the same!  Except, that is, the answer to the question, “should I breastfeed?” The answer from almost everyone we encounter as new mums, from the midwife, to the NCT instructor to the lady next to you on the bus is, “Yes.”  And this is entirely reasonable.  […]
