My husband and I attended Zoe's class in January, and as practically-minded cynics, we would highly recommend it. We're going to be first-time parents shortly, and it's really important to me to be as informed and in control
for my labour and early days of parenting as I can, really to have labour be something I do rather than something that happens to me, if that makes sense!
Zoe was excellent, really practical and definitely open to the fact that labour and birth happens in lots of different ways. I found the book and some online recordings were slightly less flexible in terms of a natural birth being the "only" option. Zoe equipped us with the tools to deal with changes in plans, and to go with the flow! It remains to be seen how the labour goes of course, but for the present I'm now regarding it with confidence and calmness rather than fear!
