"My husband and I had a beautiful baby girl … 3 weeks early. I had the most wonderful birth experience, thanks to you! I was so prepared, knowledgeable and confident. Since giving birth, I have grown to be way more appreciative of the human body and am always telling friends about my birth experience being so great, largely because of the private class we took with you! I cannot recommend your class enough… Every first time to be mother should take a class with you!
I thank you so much for being a part of our journey into parenthood. What you taught us was invaluable and we will forever appreciate your help!"
