“I feel more prepared going into parenthood having completed this class.”


“I left feeling validated about the deep connection I already had with my partner and with concrete steps to deepen it for years to come.”

Middle School Teacher

“Our class WAS magic! Both of us are so thankful for the experience and the new tools. We both believe our relationship and family dynamic with new baby will ultimately be better because of it.”

“As part of our anniversary Elisabeth and I review the year and we each do a ‘high-low-high’ from the past year. We both agreed that our weekend with you and the ‘Bringing Baby Home’ class was a true highlight of the year. It was probably the best thing we’ve done for our relationship since our pre-marital counseling.”
