"When I first found out I was pregnant I was overcome by two very powerful emotions: gratitude and absolute terror. I did not know anything about having a baby! BreeAnn was able to quickly dissolve my fears. She did not seem judgmental at all. She was very professional in her views of birth. She helped me understand more about my body and the changes that it was going through. Not only did BreeAnn teach me what was going to happen at birth, she also taught me how to feel confident about my choice to have my baby at home.
I highly recommend BreeAnn as a teacher and a mentor for anyone who has questions about childbirth whether it is a home birth or a hospital birth. I do not think I could have gone through my pregnancy and birth without her."

"When you did a session with me a couple of weeks ago, I was reminded of how much you just radiate such hope and happiness to those around you. I really felt that you wanted to help me and encourage me and that really settled my mind and heart and allowed me to feel able to open up to you about my thought sand feelings and concerns more freely. I also felt that you had great confidence in my ability to overcome any roadblocks in my life, and that was really encouraging as I left your home that evening. I really did feel lighter and more hopeful, which has been a challenge in my life when I often let stress and fear stand in the way of my own progress. Your gentle nudging in the right direction and calm assurance that I could feel more whole and healed really has helped me to focus further than my immediate situation to other possibilities and to feel like my efforts are worth it.

"BreeAnn is very passionate about everything she does and it especially shows in her teaching about pregnancy and childbirth. She wants the best for women and keeps up to date with the most recent information so that she can give them that. Talking with her enabled me to successfully have an un-medicated birth with my first baby. I highly recommend her as a teacher!" ~Allexis H., Private Childbirth Instruction
"BreeAnn was the first person I turned to for knowledge and advice when I got pregnant. We had several conversations about pregnancy, birth, and babies. I truly feel that her knowledge and advice helped me with the birth of my first child. Above all else she taught me that birth and labor are not something to be feared. They are an experience to be celebrated as you bring new life into the world. As she helped me prepare for my son's birth, she urged me to know my options and then choose what I thought was best and what I was comfortable with. Because of this, I was able to make informed decisions about how and where to give birth that would be best for my child and me. My mom was there to give support through my pregnancy and birth, but BreeAnn knew how to prepare me for the wonderful experience of birthing. BreeAnn has a way of teaching that is full of love and without criticism. She wants all mother sand future mothers to be informed about birth so that they will not be afraid when the time comes and that they will feel prepared."
