    Default Birth Week in Kallista (Melbourne) Nov 7-11

    Hi, this is one for anyone in the Melbourne area - don't miss this! It's a great chance to get well prepared for birth in a lovely supportive environment. I went last year and loved it, learned heaps. I'm recommending it to all my clients. If you can get along to any of the sessions you won't be sorry. It's not like hospital antenatal courses. See you there.

    I don't think you need to book Gracie. Just rock up at the sessions that grab your interest. Bubs are most welcome! It's very family-friendly. It was nice to see a fair few fathers & partners there last year too. I am bringing my 4 yo with me to one of the sessions.

    Oh you're in the Dandenongs! Not far for you to go.
