What some of our students have had to say:
"I tried another class that I hated, and then I was lucky enough that a friend showed me a few videos from Birthsmarter's On-Demand class. I purchased it right away. I felt SO MUCH more prepared after watching these videos and we didn't even make it through all of them. THANK YOU!" - Chelsea
"This offers a very neutral / non-bias approach to the whole birthing process which I really respected. There is so much pro-natural birth content out there (because I believe it's in fashion right now), so it was refreshing to absorb the information in a totally neutral context. This then enabled us to make up our own mind knowing full well that we couldn't actually plan how things will go down." - Helen
