This was shared by one of the recent students, “This should be a REQUIRED class for anyone having a baby. This class is poetry! I thought that all I needed was facts to be prepared….Little did I realize that birth is so much more than just knowing how to pronounce Erythromycin! …Teresa brings in your partners for to explore your relationship, create intimacy and make sure the dads learn the basics and the facts right alongside the moms… I’m so glad I found this class. I have no more fears, only anticipation for my big day!!”
