As part of the HATCH online antenatal course you also become part of the Urban Hatch family – a network of like-minded mamas and dads that often meet so you can all share experiences on the highs and lows of pregnancy, birth and parenthood.

  • When my little boy was born, Sofie’s knowledge, which she delivers in such a calm and non-judgmental way, was like a lighthouse in a storm.

    Sarah S
  • Sofie has that elusive mix of energy and calm. She has an amazing ability to read people, tailoring her advice to individual needs.

    Georgette P
  • We felt a lot more confident and knowledgeable after Sofie's classes, despite having been to other classes and read numerous books.

    Patrick A
  • We first met Sofie when we attended one of her classes, and the knowledge we gained in those 2 hours was greater than anything we got out of the all day course we had attended elsewhere

    Anthea M
  • “Sofie is the non-judgmental living guidebook everyone should have access to!”

    Sirpa S
  • Whilst pregnant  I was so busy at work didn’t have the time to attend a pre-natal course,  after work all I wanted to do was go to sleep. Having access to Sofie’s living hand book was the most valuable investment I made before I had my baby.

    Anna S
  • I was sceptical of doing an online course but having already done a face to face course I couldn’t remember a thing that I was taught. Being able to reference Sofie’s videos any time of day or night immediately put my mind at ease and calmed my nerves.
