What Parents are Saying about Rebecca's Birth Classes
"I just wanted to pop in and say thank you. You came to our house for a private birthing class and we learned so much. I had a great home birth, and got to catch my baby myself. We went into the birth with no fear and just let ourselves experience it all and now we will forever treasure this memory. My FAVORITE thing to use during my contractions was the rebozo! [My husband] was a master at it & it helped so much! Thanks to you!!" - Private Session Mama
[We] are so grateful to Rebecca for the immense teaching and mentoring leading up to this occasion. Our confidence in the birth process and our ability to work as a team was truly made possible by this class. We walked away from the birth feeling so satisfied and content with all of the decisions we made. - Mama'hood parents
"The birth experience was beautiful and perfect and everything I could have ever wished for. My water broke at midnight and [our baby] was in my arms at 4:49 a.m. I felt empowered and guided throughout the entire experience. I didn't use any medication and while pain was all encompassing, [we] used all of the tools that we practiced in your class. I remember using Edges the most. There was nothing that could prepare us, though, for the huge wave of love... it's indescribable. She's amazing. Thank you, Rebecca. For all of your guidance." - Mama'hood Parents
“We do indeed feel prepared for the birth. I'm glad we took your class relatively early - now we have some time to reflect on what we learned... It was a great way for us to connect us a couple too - we feel we learned some valuable tools for being a team during the birth. We missed having class last week!” - Mama'hood parents
"Rebecca demystified the birthing process for my partner and I, and I feel confident and empowered that I will be able to have the best birthing experience possible because of the training and information she provided." - Christine & Mark, Lafayette
