Frequently asked questions
Can I buy the vaginal course when I'm pregnant but then swap over to the caesarean if I end up having one?
We recommend watching as many of the videos whilst you're in the 3rd trimester so you're armed with the knowledge before they're here, then rewatching them when your tiny human is here.

Can you watch all the videos in one go or are the days locked?
You can binge watch the entire course all in one go or you can watch a day at a time.
Is there any CIO (cry it out)?
No, we do not use the CIO method at Babyhood, Anna will teach you every tool you need to ensure you get as little cries as possible (we cannot guarantee no cries as that is how babies communicate!)
