The baby arrived after 9 hours of med-free labour. My wife went through the whole thing with nothing but a birthing ball and 45 minutes of gas before 50 mins of pushing! Thanks so much for all the information and advice in the classes, it did help in labour and still helps now.
She found the breathing exercises you taught very helpful. The baby latched on right after birth so other than being sore things are going well. Thank you for the information.
Thank you so much for the helpful Lamaze/prenatal class. I probably couldn't have gone through labour without the useful information you gave us. On Oct 29th I gave birth to the most beaufiful baby girl in the world, weighing in at 8.3 lbs 'sunny side up'. Things are going really well. Breastfeeding successful. The human body truly amazes me after that experience. Thanks again for all your help!
Alba was our prenatal class teacher, and she was excellent. Carolyn and I continue benefit from the lessons she passed along. […] Thanks for all of the support.
We really enjoyed the weekend and found it very helpful. I hope that others can have the opportunity to attend one of your weekends and feel more re-assured about the "birthing" process and bringing home baby! It is far more rewarding then I could have ever imagined!
Since joining our team, Alba has demonstrated a high level of competence and skill […] The participant evaluations of her classes have consistently been very positive.
