“I really enjoyed the class and learned so much. Very informative and would love to go to another! I’m looking forward to birth because you gave so much great info and props and exercises to use during labour."

“After experiencing a traumatic birth with my second child, I was full of anxiety about giving birth to my third baby. Carol from Freedom Births was amazing at calming my fears and helping install excitement back in me.
Carol's 'Birthing with Passion' class was highly informative, from learning about the roles hormones play in our body through role-playing to fantastic tips and tricks that help make the birthing process more enjoyable.
Carol has a beautiful, calming manner and is extremely knowledgeable in all she does.
I thoroughly recommend Carol's services to all pregnant women and their birthing partners.”

“As a first-timer I had no idea what to expect or the best way to approach the situation. After the class I can walk away knowing the best strategies to help with the birth."
