"This class was definitely helpful, informative & I was super comfortable throughout. I loved that I could ask questions without the fear of being judged & the honesty that came with the conversations. Would take this class again, I recommend!"
"Laurie Ann and Dani are so good at what they do! The class was fun, enjoyable, and informative. My husband and I left feeling very knowledgeable about breastfeeding and caring for our baby in those first few weeks."
"I keep referencing tips from the class, now that my baby is here. I'm so glad I was able to learn from Laurie Ann and Dani- I think this journey would be so much different if I hadn't taken the class!"
