"It has been a very enriching course. An alternative to the typical parent’s craft course. Much closer to people and more personalized. Taught by a great professional with a full spirit of experiences and knowledge. A close and resolute person who is worth listening. A cosy place to get to know about the process of pregnancy and childbirth, to understand and live without fear and with the freedom and security that reveals what can be expected. Thanks to DeTela and Imma for organizing a course like that. Highly recommended "
"Thanks to this course I feel that I have all the necessary information to live the adventure of motherhood with full awareness and knowledge. Imma is a wise, rigorous, professional and always willing to accompany you by solving doubts. And the girls in the store are a charm. The atmosphere is familiar and perfect for tribe! Super recommendable !!! "
