Even though it's a one day class, info was easy to grasp. Instructor really knew a lot and she was very informed. I did the class before and I've learned new stuff.  Paper work along with demos were very helpful. Great Class!

“Just wanted to let you know that we had our baby.  He weighed in at 7lbs., 3oz. It was an all natural birth and I had to thank you for so much for the excellent classes. The breathing exercises really helped and the nurses kept saying they were impressed with my amazing “pain control”. My husband was a great coach, with timing my contractions, being supportive and really cheering me on during the pushing. We are all back at home now and doing well. Once again a huge thank you and we are both grateful for having taken the course.”

- Lisa & Wes of Ajax

“Our daughter’s birth was an amazing experience. She is an angel baby. Thanks again for giving us the courage and wisdom to face labour, breastfeeding and parenthood.”

- Mary & Mike of Pickering

“As we learned in class, every birth is different and to expect the unexpected. I did not plan to go through labour with no drugs, nor did I plan to stay at home for so long but that is the way it went and looking back I am very pleased. Thanks again.”

- Sammy & Sean of Oshawa

“Thank you so much for building our confidence about the whole birth experience.”

- Kira & Nat of Whitby

“Words cannot express our gratitude for the education, support and friendship.”

“Thank you so much for all the information you have empowered us with. We both feel prepared and ready for the birth of our baby.  Neither of us even expected half of what we got from the classes.”

- Cathy & Dave of Oshawa
