    Comment:
    "Having personally met the team behind the organisation I would not hesitate to use their services. I find the many different services on offer especially useful for pregnant women in a foreign country who perhaps do not speak the language. It is extemely overwhelming when becoming a mum and difficult to know who to approach and where to get the right help and information. The concept is a wonderful idea and alliviates a lot of unnecessary stress" (LJ April 2014)
