Class Reviews:

"My childbirth instructor was very kind, fun and knowledgeable. She helped me learn about all my options, gave me the tools I needed and placed my fears at ease. My husband and I are much more relaxed and confident about what to expect during labor and birth." -Jenn, expectant mother
