Here’s what our past students say:
The Diploma in Midwifery Complementary Therapies has been fantastic, worth every penny! I’ve been able to enhance my career, adopt the use of complementary therapies safely within the NHS, establish a specialist post-dates pregnancy clinic and secure funding for research and training through an award grant. None of this would have been possible without Expectancy’s course. Tara Pauley, midwife, Hinchinbrooke Hospital, Cambridgeshire.
