"My husband and I attended your pre-natal partners class and really enjoyed it so much. What a nice experience to just be in a quiet, calm space together and connect. When we arrived at the hospital my surges were only a minute apart. We soon found ourselves swept up in the flurry of hospital birth, but thanks in part to our work with you, we were able to stay connected and find our happy place despite the poking, prodding, checking and monitoring. Thanks so much for a great workshop and I am looking into future yoga classes with you at lil Omm." - Lindsay
"Thank you for following up with us. We were surprised by how much we enjoyed the workshop. The experience reminded me that sometimes it's best to leave expectations at the door and allow oneself to be present. Thanks for helping us add new "tools" to our arsenal for childbirth, but mostly thank you for creating a nurturing space that allowed the couples to connect at a very precious turning point in our relationships." - Mirabelle
