Feedback

At Trageschule UK, we encourage and welcome feedback from our course participants, both during and after the course. We try to ensure that there are different channels and opportunities available for this feedback, so that it’s easier to pass the feedback on, and, where applicable, to work with it as soon as possible.

Below are just a few quotes from the feedback we received from the participants of some of our courses. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has spared their time to give us feedback so far – we really are grateful to have heard how the courses have been for you! We’re also grateful for your permission to share that feedback here.

We are putting this information here to give you some examples of what different aspects of the course were like for our course participants — whilst remembering that every course is different, and every person is unique and individual, which may shape different people’s experience of the same event in a different way.

And, we’d like to take this opportunity to say HUGE thanks to our course participants and our consultants, for having chosen to work with us on the path of helping parents to carry their babies in safety and comfort!
