"I learned so much through this video series. I have TONS of info to absorb. This course was inclusive, non judgmental, & made it so that families know their options so that they can make informed decision about what's best for them." - Dominique Montgomery

"As first time expecting parents, my husband and I really did not know what to expect. I was especially nervous about the labor and delivery process. We took the online course that they offered which was very informative and taught us so much about pregnancy/birth that we did not know about. We also learned some tips for labor and delivery which we will practice. I found the instructor very calming to watch and listen to as well. The videos were perfect for our busy schedule because they were broken down into short digestible segments. Overall this was a great course and we would recommend it to any expecting parents!" - Shirley To

"We are so thankful that our doula Lindsey directed us to this class. We learned so much about the birthing process and feel more confident as we look toward the big day(s)! The biggest take away we have is that giving birth looks differently for everyone and knowing what to expect is a valuable way to manage anxiety and fear. It was a great experience that has made us look forward to the process even more." - Jillian Edwards

"Sam Huggins is quite possibly the most likable and comforting person on earth. She communicates very clearly and gently--ensuring that you understand all of your options and most everything you will experience is normal--that all pregnancies are different. She makes it clear when you should seek a physician's opinion. She is also great at mentoring the partner of the birthing person and what they can be doing." -Lindsay D Rowe

"Loved this in depth, but efficient childbirth ed!" - Allison Liokumovich

"Learning with Carriage House Birth is like learning from the cool girls you wish you were friends with but they're actually amazing and intelligent and welcome you with open arms!" - Sarah Sorace

"As a doula, I took the Childbirth Education Video Series as a refresher and to further my knowledge and training. I wish I had taken it sooner! It was more comprehensive than the class I took at the hospital when I was an expectant mother preparing for the birth of my own son. Every option was discussed, including home birth and comfort measures/pain management, in a way that makes women feel empowered and comfortable with their choices. It was informative and completely non-judgmental. I highly recommend this for both expectant mothers AND doulas." - Lauren DiGiuseppe
