" I just wanted to drop you and Sarah a note of thanks for running such a great course. It really helped build my confidence in treating my pregnant clients, of whom I have seen 2 this week, and both have re-booked for next week as well! I learnt a lot that I have already been able to put in to practice. It was a long way to travel, but very much worth it. Many thanks again. "
