I cannot recommend the “Must Have Tools For Labor” Class enough! It not only helped me prepare for labor again, but it got my husband in tune with how I’d be feeling and how to help me. We felt ready to go into this birth as a team, with many tools in our tool belt. I also believe all of the prenatal yoga classes helped get my body ready for action. I could feel how all of the “positive positions” would help move the baby into place. Knowing how to properly breathe through every contraction and position was invaluable, I really felt like I could handle whatever was going to happen during my labor and delivery."
I look forward to seeing everyone at some of the postpartum classes!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for a wonderful and very informative class on Sunday (12/10/17). My husband and I left feeling more knowledgeable and I’m so thrilled he has the skills to help me through labor. You did an amazing job of encouraging the partners while also holding them accountable for their super important role. Thank you a million!"
My husband and I took your “Must Have Tools For Labor” class yesterday (4/10/16), and I just wanted to let you know how sincerely much we enjoyed it, and how much more prepared we both feel. I was amazed at how in tune and connected I feel with him now about this process, and how much more confident I feel going into this as a first time Mom that I have the right tools and both a supportive / more knowledgeable partner. One of my fears has been the disconnect with him about labor, delivery, and him feeling helpless when we get to that point - you gave him invaluable instruction and guidance in an excellent, organized format. He logically understood the reasons behind the methods (which is important to him) but even more importantly, he understood emotionally for me the impact that his support will have. I was truly amazed at how he took the reins and really “coached” me and was excited to be able to offer his help! You truly are a gifted instructor and you know how to connect with the Dads (and Moms!) in a special way, and I cannot express in words how thankful I am that we signed up for this class…we were so nervous prior to going! THANK YOU for everything and I plan to sign up for as many other classes as I can through Herself Moms!"

I am so pleased with our birth story and glad I took the Tools for Labor class with Julie. I found myself using so many different options that were taught to us in class. It was also helpful for Joe because he was very prepared and was able to support me through the whole process. He very much mimicked mommy’s mood. We also took the breastfeeding class offered through Herself Mom and that has helped me along with breastfeeding and being able to prepare for growth spurts timeline mentioned in class."
Keep up the good work ladies- attend the tools for labor class because that was the most helpful class my husband and I attended. It really helped me be strong for labor and prepared us for this amazing journey. I have enjoyed prenatal yoga and all the good tips and advice that Julie gives us. Can’t wait for postpartum sculpt!!!"

I first want to start by personally saying thank you to Julie at Herself Moms. My husband and I could not thank you enough for all your guidance, support, and knowledge you provided. Being first time parents, we know that we would not have been prepared for the L&D of our first child. Additionally, the “Express Yourself” class has been more than helpful with nursing and we highly recommend the “Must Have Tools For Labor” class! Lastly, thank you for preparing me physically through the yoga classes, I felt strong and confident that I could physically and mentally make it through the L&D process."
I just wanted to say thank you SO much for the amazing tools for labor class! Nic was dreading it even as we walked in and sat down. But your presentation of what his role and responsibilities would be completely changed after that class. After I’ve come to prenatal yoga two times a week for the last 20 weeks, I’ve been able to hear your experienced, educated and honest take on the decisions we as have over how our labor goes, but Nic hadn’t had the chance to hear that side of it. After class he even said he would’ve just walked into labor and delivery and let the doctor do whatever, thinking she’s the boss! But after your class he felt a sense of responsibility and now wants to walk in “throwing elbows” as he put it! Ha! He seems empowered now that he has a significant role in this labor and delivery, and I have you to thank for that. Now that we have ALL of these tools, our combined goal is to stay at home as long as possible and do this completely natural, which actually made me (gasp!) excited for labor! Never thought I’d say that! We both cannot wait to sign up for more classes. I truly do not know what I would’ve done if I hadn’t found you and Herself Mom’s. Thank you for all that you do!!!!! See you Tuesday!"

Thanks for all the positions and breathing techniques learned in prenatal and the Tools class. We used many to achieve the natural birth we had hoped for!"
