Training - What is included, dates and costs

A Wise Hippo teacher oozes passion for positive birth and are dedicated to making sure pregnant women and their birth partners achieve the right birth on the day.  Women become teachers for a very specific reason, either they have had first-hand experience of achieving a positive birth using these techniques or they have seen others benefit from them with their own eyes and are bursting at the seams to share this life changing knowledge with others. You will find us all wallowing in The Wise Hippo POD online and we look forward to welcoming you to our exclusive community too.
