One of the most popular perinatal services offered at the Sheffield Wellness Centre are the antenatal classes. These classes are run by Fi from Bumps & Births. Fi is a member of The Daisy Foundation and they offer the perfect mix of education, peer support, gentle movement and relaxation to the mums who attend.
You can read a lot online from the providers of antenatal classes but the real test are the reviews of people who have done the course. Below are just some of the reviews of The Daisy Foundation classes run by Fi from Bumps and Births.
Both my husband and I met with Fi shortly before the birth of my second child, Thomas. After a difficult experience first time around, I was anxious about the forthcoming labour and early newborn phase. Fi was extremely understanding, kind and supportive. She helped us tackle some practical anxieties and enabled us to approach things second time around with more control and confidence. I also managed to attend some of her Daisy Move pre-natal sessions at short notice which were fantastic. I thoroughly recommend Fi to anyone who is approaching childbirth with any degree of anxiety. She turned things around for us and we are immensely grateful for her timely involvement. Thank you!

Really enjoyed the 6 week daisy birthing classes. It was a lovely relaxing and positive atmosphere, and Fi is great. Can't wait to come along to the postnatal classes with baby!

I am currently on my second course of 6 week daisy birth classes and my husband I went to the couple's class too. Fiona creates a relaxing and supportive environment to prepare for birth. Classes are informative about the process and teach breathing and movements to use during labour and birth to stay on track. My mentality had shifted; from feeling like labour and giving birth were going to happen to me, to it being something I am going to do. Thanks!

Wonderful small group, informative, empowering and relaxing. I was extremely emotional and worried week 1 due to sudden pregnancy complications and by week 6 I felt positive and had built back trust in my own body as well as gaining a support peer group. Would highly recommend.

Fi's 6 week birthing course was amazing. I completed it twice. It helped me to keep calm during my pregnancy and also prepare for the birth of my baby. I now feel well informed and know exactly what I would like for the birth of my baby. Me and my husband also completed the couples birthing workshop, this was fantastic. My husband is so happy I found this course and is now excited to play an important roll in the baby's birth. We can't thank Fi enough and would 100% recommend the classes to anyone preparing for birth.

Loved the 6 week course of Daisy Birthing classes with Fi! As a first time Mum to be Fi provided a perfect mix of information, breathing exercises and reassurance! A great chance to take some time out and focus on me and the baby. Thankyou Fi x

My partner and I attended Fi's course at around 34 weeks and it was fantastic. She was friendly and down to earth as well as being very well informed about a huge range of birth and baby related research and literature. We felt we could ask any questions at all and both feel much more confident about birth and parenthood. Thank you!

Fi is fantastic at running antenatal classes! I have met many of the mums she has helped and they can't recommend her enough. I am incredibly proud of my wife and that she has been able to help so many women to have safer, more enjoyable and more informed births. If you are looking for antenatal classes I would HIGHLY recommend Bumps and Births.
