"During labor Bethany was incredible at providing emotional, physical, and verbal support to me directly while also providing my husband with encouragement and suggestions. My husband appreciated Bethany's ability to impart knowledge and experience without disrupting the connection between the two of us throughout an extremely intimate and vulnerable time. We are beyond grateful to Bethany for helping us create a beautiful, natural, fulfilling birth experience"

"My husband and I are eternally grateful to have had Bethany on our team, both in the months leading up to our baby's delivery and especially during. She is incredibly kind, patient, and supportive, and went above and beyond what we were expecting. As new parents, we were both going into the experience with a lot of anxiety related to the unknown and she was the perfect balance to keep us calm and focused. We would highly recommend Bethany as both a Bradley instructor and as a doula."
-First Time Mom
"Bethany was an AMAZING help to my wife and I for the birth of our second child! Her help began well before the birth started and we could not have been more blessed than to have her in the room with us during delivery. As the husband, Bethany's presence and insight about what was going on helped keep my mind at ease so I could focus more on my wife and the baby. We plan to work with her again for any future pregnancies we may be blessed with and highly recommend her to all our friends and family who are expecting. "
