“Having children from a previous relationship, I felt that I had experienced childbirth. I honestly didn't think there was anything else that I could learn. This class opened my eyes; it became more about being a good partner for my wife. Looking back, I don't know if I could have been as present as I was for our 24 hour labor without this guidance. It was not an easy labor, one that could have easily ended as a cesarean, but we made it to the end with the natural birth that we hoped for because we were so well informed of our options. This class not only empowered us as a family, but ultimately strengthened the bond between me and my wife.“ ~Alfredo

“As a husband, you sometimes feel removed from the birthing process and it is hard to understand what your wife is going through. This class is more than just learning about birth; it gives you tips and tools that get you through each stage of labor to the first moments with your new baby. This knowledge is invaluable. After taking the class, you have the confidence to own the entire experience together with your partner.” ~Andre

“It is so easy to give in to the fear of childbirth, especially as a new mother experiencing labor for the first time. These classes gave me valuable knowledge of pregnancy, labor, and the realities of postpartum. But most importantly, these classes were presented in a safe and compassionate space where I could take the power away from my fear of birth and unknowns of postpartum and breastfeeding. By the time my baby was ready to be born, I felt empowered for the experience ahead.” ~Emily

“These classes were consciousness-raising. The presentation normalized pregnancy and birth, taking away the fear and mystery that this time can bring. The specifics of the birthing process were covered, and many pain coping techniques were taught. I left with a renewed feeling of empowerment and trust of my body to give birth”. ~Carly

“I truly enjoyed Yoga for Labor & Delivery class! It was exactly what I needed. I feel a lot more confident to try for a VBAC now.” ~Lauren

“I want to thank you form the bottom of my heart for the yoga classes and all the information in childbirth education. I felt so informed and in control the whole time and was able to stick with my birth plan.” ~Lorraine

“These classes have given me the tools and confidence necessary to take on the sacred journey of pregnancy with strength, fearlessness, and gratitude. It has helped me to connect with my body and prepare for baby in a most profound way.” ~Christa

“We know we said this in person, but we can't help reiterating how grateful we were to have you play an important and wonderful role at our baby's birth. We can't imagine it going any smoother and we will always be thankful for your calm nature, good will and strong guidance.” ~Brenna and Nick

“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us have the birth we wanted. We're so glad to have had your calming, gentle, wise and helpful presence leading up to and during the birth. We had a feeling you'd be a perfect doula and we were right!” ~Marisa and David (baby #1)

“And, of course, we don't know how to thank you enough for helping us to have the birth we wanted...again! Not a week goes by that I don't share our birth story and mention how awesome you were --- and how helpful "nature's epidural" was.” ~Marisa and David (baby #2)

“I don't know where to begin to thank you for all of your love and support along my journey into motherhood. Thank you for holding a sacred space for me during all the ups and downs of pregnancy and for your gifts of wisdom, knowledge of birth and baby rearing.” ~Eila

“Thank you for being a part of the most amazing experience of our lives. We couldn't imagine doing it without you.” ~Alexis and Rocky

Thank you again for all the experience you helped me to gain. I just graduated from nursing school and I am applying for labor and delivery positions! I’m so thankful for the mentoring meetings I had with you and the couples we worked with together before and during their births. Your childbirth and breastfeeding classes that you allowed me to sit in on not only changed my life — it made me absolutely sure that I am supposed to do this work.
