I just wanted to say thank you for your time & expertise spent teaching me so when I saw a mom in the nursery having trouble nursing her 2 month old I could help her.
With the help of God, Esali birth class and our Doula Crysta we did it [VBAC]!
Great meetings led by a very educated and helpful educator. Wish I'd been able to go to something like this years ago when I had my first child! I learned lots of information that I didn't know about breastfeeding before, even though I did breastfeed both of my older children for several months. I am being introduced to many more resources that are helping me shape my overall birth plan and the choices I want to make after our newest baby is born.
I'm so glad we're educating ourselves and are doing things differently this time. It's crazy what our maternity system has turned into. Women are so scared to give birth and it just doesn't need to be that way. I'm genuinely EXCITED!
There was so much information I learned that, after sharing with friends who went through hospital provided classes, I found out how much wasn't being taught! I felt like we stumbled on a buried treasure of information.
It [EB classes] made me extremely prepared and aware of what was happening to me and my baby. Not to mention the amazing support from my teacher and my fellow Mommies. I felt empowered and EB gave me the knowledge and courage to have an amazing birth.
I'm so glad I took your class. When [baby] had jaundice and the nurses told me they would give [baby] formula, I knew they didn't have to do that and I was able to speak up.
I am so excited about this birth and the experience because we're able to do it at home and with women who believe in natural birth. It is a blessing every time I meet with them and it never would have happened if it weren't for your classes and encouragement and help along the way.
