Ariadna gave a realisitic and flexible account of pregnancy, labour and parenthood, and the emphasis was on your power to become well informed and make your own choices about the whole process.

Ariadna's antenatal classes were fluid and interesting. Her depth of experience as a midwife shows in the confidence with which she explains a range of subjects and fields questions. She also has a very good sense of humour.


My wife and I found this course very helpful. Ariadna was very honest and made sure other couples who had given birth came to speak to us to give us their story of child birth and the weeks after.

Bump Birth and beyond is currently not offering any courses as Ariadna had recently given birth to her 3rd daughter, hence decided to have some time off from the classes.

If you would like to sign up for an antenatal group led by experienced midwives, then contact:

These classes are run by practising midwives and I can highly recommend them. I have add their dates on this website under booking.
