Leigh is fantastic! After doing some research on Childbirth Education classes in the neighborhood, was lucky to find Leigh. We took the two-course class and learned so much over the two days. Leigh’s approach is welcoming, knowledgeable, resourceful and engaging. The classes were very informative and felt like an open discussion with a very supportive, experienced new friend. She provides a comfortable space to ask any and all questions and shares information on the good, bad, ugly and after.

Leigh’s approach is evidence-based, not dogmatic, and addresses both the physical and emotional aspects of childbirth, all with a dose of levity and humor. My partner and I just finished the five-week course better informed, more connected to one another (amazing how just dedicating time and energy each week does this), and less terrified about the journey ahead.
