"We are in love! It was a BEAUTIFUL NATURAL CHILDBIRTH!!! THANK YOU!!! Here is a picture of our girls. Baby Claire with her big sister, Sarah!" ~ Susan Doherty
"The New Arrival Educators Natural Childbirth Class was a great way to learn/review the birth process, but with the natural aspect added in. I learned many techniques to help with pain relief and relaxation, including breathing and laboring positions. My instructor, Maria, spoke of and recommended books by midwives who promote natural childbirth. She emphasized the importance of gravity, which can sometimes be forgotten during the birth process. Maria was great at including the dads/support person during class and their role during labor and delivery. Overall, I left class feeling educated and excited about laboring naturally again. I feel prepared for a wonderful birthing experience!"
