Families Share Their Stories
I was feeling overwhelmed with what supplements to take and how to support my body in early pregnancy while I was so sick until I joined Natural Childbirth 101 where I learned what supplements were essential and what I could do physically and mentally to support my changing body and growing baby. I learned what specific foods to eat and how often to help me feel the best I could. I learned great exercises that I still use today to help loosen my body and allow for growth. Natural childbirth 101 was a huge part of my healthy pregnancy and successful delivery.
All the natural supplements and exercise (both physically and mentally) helped me to prepare my body and mind for a powerful and quick water birth. You never truly know what to expect as a first time mom but Natural Childbirth 101 prepared me as much as possible. I truly believe I had such a wonderful experience because I invested my time and learned so much from the course.
First Time Mom - A. Thomas
I grew up hearing the birth horror stories and never imagined natural birth was an option, I was afraid of birth. Taking the Natural Childbirth 101 course really helped inform and equip me during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, and I was able to make the right choices nutritionally, emotionally, and physically that really made a difference in having my beautiful, natural, unhindered and empowering birth. I never knew how wonderful giving birth could be.
First Time Parents - G. Woods
Although I knew I wanted to give birth naturally, I wasn’t sure how to prepare myself. When I joined Natural Childbirth 101 I learned tools that helped me stay calm during my labor, and guided me in making informed decisions about my birth. This course also helped prepare my husband with tools he needed to get me through each contraction. The way Kaleem with Natural childbirth 101 walks you through your bodies natural ability to birth helped me gain confidence in trusting my body during labor which allowed me to power through and have my dream birth.
First Time Mom-D. Zentner
I am an FNP and CNM who cares for women and their families. I took the Natural Childbirth 101 class and learned so much about physiologic birth and empowering women. It taught me the importance of helping women care for their bodies through adequate nutrition, pelvic exercises, and supplements so they can then provide the best care to their growing babies. It helped my clients prevent complications and taught them to trust birth. I am so thankful for this course and would recommend it to all pregnant women and those who care for them.
