Childbirth Education Testimonials

"I loved the personal aspect [of private childbirth preparation] which allowed us the flexibility to dive into topics that were important to us. I enjoyed the various exercises that allowed us to emote and interact with each other, but also appreciated the presentations and videos that covered a myriad of topics including potential complications and recovery. I think the classes helped my husband feel much more prepared, confident and valued. It was extremely helpful to discuss the different scenarios that we might encounter and go through various role playing exercises. The classes were such a positive influence on our relationship. They really made me feel so much more united and closer to my husband and made me appreciate his role so much more.

 

Amanda is amazing! She is so knowledgable and clearly spends quite a bit of time doing her own research to ensure that she's teaching and sharing the most up-to-date, evidence based facts. I'm so thankful that we were able to takes these classes with her!"

I highly, highly, highly recommend Amanda!! She's not only an amazing person but you feel immediately 1000% safe in her knowledge about babies, car seats, placenta encapsulation, etc.

 

We had Amanda help us with our car seat installation because we were nervous as first time parents to make sure we knew everything there is to know about installing our car seat correctly.Goodness, I'm so glad we did!

 

Amanda was punctual, took her time, made sure we talked about absolutely everything, made sure we could probably operate and handle the car seat installation ourselves and much more. Her follow up was also something that we highly appreciated and she answered any and all additional questions we had. 

 

We would work with her over and over again because it's been such an amazing experience from start to finish.Thanks Amanda for everything!!

"Amanda did a private childbirth class in our home-she was wonderful. She came to our home, was very flexible about the day and able to accommodate our schedule very last minute. She packed so much information in one session and really gave me the motivation to try and hire our own doula, she's just that good! I wish that we'd be able to hire her as our personal doula, she has so much knowledge and confidence it left us feeling really good about my upcoming birth. Thank you so much Amanda! You truly were amazing :)"

We scheduled a private childbirth education session with Amanda and absolutely loved it. My husband and I couldn't stop talking about how perfect it was and how glad we were to do it this way instead of scheduling a childbirth class through the hospital. She customized it perfectly for us and we felt so comfortable asking her any and every question. She even followed up the appointment with more resources and links to answer and expand upon things we brought up in our session. We feel much more prepared and educated for what to expect for our first child's delivery. Thank you Amanda!

                                                               

                                        ~Amna, Irvine

My husband and I had been searching for someone to install our car seat correctly and we finally found Amanda via a yelp search! Amanda is extremely knowledgeable! She was able to educate us on the safety our car seat installation and she taught us how to install it in both our cars! Such a great experience!

 

Any new parent should definitely get their car seat checked, it's the most important thing you can do for your baby! Amanda also traveled to our home which made it even easier for us thank you so much!
