“My wife and I had Valerie come to our house for the private childbirth class and all I can say is WOW! As first time parents we had so many questions and concerns regarding our personal birth plan and how to tackle the process as a "team". Once she left it felt as if we had become seasoned vets and we were ready to take the bull by the horns. I couldn't be more thankful for her sincere approach, you can tell this is her passion and I look forward to using her services again!” -Jordan C.
