"Is it any good? In a word- yes! The Kit is absolutely wicked. There is SO much covered. Like literally everything you could ever think of is included, from a 21 minute baby massage video, to information about tongue tie- and that's just two of the seventeen files in the baby health and wellbeing bit- one of nine jam-packed sections. See? I told you. This course is FULL. The video and audio files are categorised really well and range from as short as under a minute or two (there is an excellent 1.47 video on How to Cough Properly to Avoid Urine Leakage, by Elodie Poissenot, My French Physio) right up to a 35 minute file of the sounds of a crying baby, to play to your dog, and get them used to the sound before you bring home the real thing. There is a huge amount of experts delivering these mini-lessons as well, such as Anneke herself and Dr Jemma Hunter: The Mummy Dentist and loads more. Again, as I've said now a few times- this course is brilliant."

"Having just had a baby six weeks ago, Komu has been invaluable to me. Sure, there’s plenty of information out there on the internet, but often it’s out of date and there’s often conflicting advice. I trust Komu because it is created by a Midwife alongside lots of postnatal experts who offer their professional advice and first-hand experience. Everything about the Course has been incredibly useful and it’s nice to have everything you need in one place rather than having to Google each time. I would definitely recommend it to all expecting parents."
