Why choose Kristina's Northampton classes?
''My husband and I attended the in-person January 2022 course with Kristina and I can hands down say it’s the best thing we have done as part of preparing for the arrival of our little one. Not only has it armed us with the practical knowledge for birthing our baby but Kristina has been invaluable support throughout the past few months as we approach the due date. I was absolutely terrified by the thought of childbirth and the whole process prior to completing the course but Kristinas interactive and engaging sessions really helped to put both myself and my husband at ease as well as now being able to confidently advocate for the birth we want (as well as letting me ask all the silly questions in a safe space 😂).
Equally the benefit of our group sessions is that we have also made some amazing mumma friends who are absolutely incredible support too as well meeting up with wider mums from other sessions as part of the brunch meet ups! (I mean who doesn’t love cake, right?!). I know that we now feel empowered and knowledgeable to have a positive birth and utilise all tools we have been provided with, and for that I will be forever grateful to Kristina 💕''

Community - Enjoy Free Local Meet Ups
We are your village! Enjoy free local meet ups with our gorgeous gang, and find all the best spots for you & your babe to enjoy in Northamptonshire
The Birth Base isn't just a course, it's a wonderful community to be a part of. I organise coffee mornings & brunches so you can meet other likeminded mums.
Sabrina says 'It's lovely meeting up with other mummies & their babies. Sharing stories, experiences tips etc. I just love the social aspect of it where I have an excuse to get out of the house and be around others, not just for me but for my baby too , can't wait for the next Birth Base meet up!'
'You are amazing! I'm so grateful for everything you've done for us, I feel so in control and it's down to your courses...You are definitely in the right job for you, giving people this inner confidence is a real skill...especially when most are first timers and have not a CLUE about birth and their rights etc. I am gutted I never did this first time round, but I'm in the know now and that's all that matters!'
