“My partner and I found the home birth seminar to be very informative. We thought that a home birth aligned with our values and desires we hoped for in a birth, however we had A LOT of questions surrounding the risks and what would be involved. The informative session helped us be more confident in our decision making as we plan for our birth.” ~Alanna
“My husband and I attended the home birth seminar hosted by Debra at the Childbearing Society in February. We were sure we wanted to have a home birth but felt the information on home birth classes was limited. I was so happy to come across the home birth seminar by Debra and felt the seminar gave us great information on home birth, was an open and friendly environment and only made us feel more confident in our decision of having a home birth. Thank you Debra!” ~Susan
“My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the home birth seminar with Debra.  We found the material to be thoughtful, informative, and inspiring.  We left feeling more confident in our decision, with a much better grasp on all the options and what may – or may not – happen!  For anyone interested in exploring home birth or even a new way of thinking about birth, we would highly recommend this class. Thanks again!” ~Tara
