Kind Words About Shelley From Previous Clients

We had the pleasure of taking Shelley’s prenatal class which was absolutely fantastic! Shelley provided tons of useful information that made the birthing process so much easier as she ensured we had all the information to make informed choices. I highly recommend Shelley, she is AMAZING!!!

Prenatal Childbirth Prep

My husband and I got a lot out of taking Shelley’s weekend course. We both went into the course very nervous and looking to learn as much as we could about what to expect for the birth. Not only did we learn great information and practical tools about the birth process, but we also learned so much about breastfeeding and the newborn stage. Needless to say, we feel much more prepared for the birth of our first child and better able to work as a team through the upcoming months. Thanks Shelley!

I wish there was a 100 star option! I can’t say enough wonderful words about Shelley. She was our Lamaze® instructor and gave us all of the knowledge and tools we needed to be as prepared as possible for the labor and delivery. Not only that but she is also now our sons sleep coach and she is helping us find gentle ways to improve his sleep without having to do the dreaded just let him cry it out. She is a wonderful woman who is passionate about helping families, we feel so blessed to have found her!

Lamaze® & Sleep Coaching

I had private Lamaze® lessons with Shelley and she was also my doula for the birth of my son. Having her by my side and having her support helped make it an amazing experience. She was knowledgeable and most importantly she supported the decisions that I wanted.
