“We labored at home for six intense hours, went to the hospital, and he was born forty minutes later. J did such a good job coaching the doctor asked, “Have you taken a birth preparation class?” We got a lot out of your class — thanks a million!!” — A, J & E
“We both feel we had a beautiful birth story that was made up of well educated decisions. From the entire birth team, even though it was not at all what we had envisioned. Thanks Ann for your instruction and class that equipped us for such success!” — O.A .& S.Q.
“We’re happy to report our baby was born on Saturday at 12:31 am…our exercise classes were ESSENTIAL in the later part of labor — the doctor and nurse described me as a “natural” at pushing, but I had to admit I’d been practicing my c-curves twice a week!” — G.S.
“We arrived at the hospital at 8pm on Friday and I was 6 cm dilated…I delivered by 1 am without pain meds. It was an amazing experience. You really do focus inward. I found sitting in the shower holding the sprayer to be helpful. Definitely try different positions. I used the bar for when it can time to push. Just know that there is an end in sight and just holding your baby at the end is the most wonderful, amazing feeling in the world!” — P.E.
