My husband and I couldn't be happier with our decision to hire Maura Jo as a doula and take GentleBirth classes. The knowledge that we obtained from her in this program so incredibly prepared us, that when it came time to alter our birth plan, we were able to confidently and capably navigate the road to ultimately meeting our son. Having Maura Jo as our doula made our birth story incredible. We wouldn't want to imagine this birth without her. She will forever be a part of our journey into the next chapter of our lives. We can't recommend her or this program enough.

Hi Maura Jo,

I just wanted to follow up to say thank you for the GentleBirth workshop and to let you know that [our baby] was born....  After the workshop I did listen to the affirmations and some of the hypnosis tracks in the app pretty regularly leading up to the birth. We used a lot of what we learned through the program to put together our birth plan and once the time came we were both feeling confident and ready. 

....[When the baby was born] She came straight to me and stayed on my chest for over an hour before being taken to be weighed and measured.  We are completely in love with her.  

I am so happy with how my birth story turned out and I credit a lot of that to being well-equipped and educated going in.  I can't thank you enough for being such a great teacher and helping to make [our baby's] birth one that I will look back on with no regrets!
