"My husband and I were incredibly excited to welcome our first child into the world. But, well into my 7th month of pregnancy, I'll admit that I was feeling pretty frustrated. There was so much I didn't know about labor and birth, and I wasn't getting what I needed from my healthcare provider or the internet. I wanted someone experienced and knowledgeable to help me filter information, weigh my options, and be ready for the decisions to come. I found all of this and more in Adair's class. Adair was compassionate, professional, and totally non-judgmental. She provided us with excellent, up-to-date information related to labor and birth, and she took the time to answer all of our questions. Her class gave me just what I needed to feel positive and empowered. I'd recommend it to anyone!" -Leslie
