"As a husband, you can 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 labor to the first moments with your new baby. This knowledge is invaluable. After taking the class, I had the confidence to own the entire experience together with my wife." –Andre
"Kelly gave me valuable knowledge about pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum shift, but most importantly, she offered me a safe and compassionate space where I could take the power away from my fear." –Emily
