"Becky gave us a four-hour private lesson on pre-natal comfort measures, focused on techniques to use during labor and delivery. We found her to be incredibly well-organized, and her pacing to be perfect for our needs. She brought over a variety of tools (e.g., birthing ball, rebozo) and both demonstrated and coached us in a variety of ways to use each, exactly as we would in labor. She taught my partner how to give massages in locations and using techniques that fit my preferences and needs. Even in that relatively short amount of time, she wanted to know what we cared about, so that she could be most useful to us, and she customized many aspects of the lesson to our questions/concerns. She was also excellent at helping me to both determine which aspects of the delivery/postpartum process are most important to me, and strategize how/when to advocate for my needs when the time comes. Thank you so much for an outstanding training!"-  J.S
