Feedback from Better Birthing & Beyond Workshop with Kate

I would highly recommend doing this workshop for first time parents. It put my mind at ease about the birthing process and what each of our roles are (mother/baby/partner).

My husband really enjoyed it and got a lot out of it.

Kate was so helpful, friendly and a fountain of knowledge.

I didn’t feel like I was being told what to do, I felt that I was being given the knowlegde so I could make my own choices on birth and what intervention, drugs or assistance I may want.

Plenty of time for discussion and questions.” FTM 2018
