Course leaders - about us

Catherine Hunsley (O&G), Selina Ravenscroft (O&G), Ryan Dias (Psychiatry)

The course leaders are all doctors with children who saw a need for a different kind of antenatal course - one that is focused, evidence-based and delivered by professionals but also provides the same opportunity as nationally-organised courses for developing a peer-support group in the lead up to and after having your baby.
