What parents have had to say about our classes:

“I felt it was very informative, provocative and self cultivating. I was able to not only identify some of my fears attached to labor but meet them face on.” -Daniela

“I loved being able to have a safe place to delve deeper into the mystical side of birth. I loved how Jamie and Charisse conducted the class, there was a lot of room to ponder, listen, and ask questions. I thought the class was wonderful. It also really helped facilitate discussions and bring up areas of further exploration for me and my husband” – anonymous mother

“We enjoyed the small, intimate setting, and open discussion of each others' feelings.  This was a different approach to childbirth preparation, and very warm.” – Shuyen

“We now have an increased confidence in our ability to handle the intensity of labor.  This course helped us talk, plan, and discover the deeper meaning of birth.” – a father

“My partner and I have a better understanding of what each other expects and what might be actually helpful during the process of labor.” – Denise

“My partner learned a TON about how to communicate with and support me.  He really enjoyed the classes and it brought us closer together.  We got to see and talk about our own expectations of labor and birth in a warm and supportive environment.” -Brenna

“Jamie and Charisse have a gentle, loving nature.” -Ian
