What people are saying about the class

“Kira, I’m so glad that we chose to do our prenatal class with you versus at our hospital. I was especially interested in your prenatal class because it covered at least a taste of what to do when the baby arrives, rather than focusing solely on the birthing process. We definitely got a great introduction to many different approaches to experiencing birth. I really appreciated that you made sure that everyone had a chance to participate in the way they needed to.”
