“The birthing workshop was awesome and I would highly recommend it to anyone having a baby. There’s so much I didn’t know! Liz is knowledgeable, caring, and funny – we loved her. She offers unbiased information about what to expect at every stage of labor, and helped us to understand all of our options along the way. We now feel empowered to make informed choices that are right for us. Thank you!
