CLASS REVIEW

Thanks for a great, extremely worth-while class.

The instructor was personable, open to questions, enthusiastic, and clearly passionate about helping women (and men) feel comfortable with their first birthing experience.”

Answered most of my big questions before I even asked them.

Very informative; unbiased; covered all aspects in an easy to comprehend manner. The presenter did a great job easing anxiety and fear going in to my first delivery.
