I can't imagine not knowing the information we learned in our Natural Childbirth class with Julie! I am so much more confident and aware compared to just a few months ago. My partner is also ready and excited to help me through the birth (and he was dreading it before). As a result of the class, we have changed hospitals and are now using midwifery group that allows water births. We feel empowered! We are looking forward to getting back together with our classmates and sharing our stories after all of our babies are born. Thanks so much, Julie!

Taking Natural Birth Classes with Julie helped my husband and I in the birth of Austin. We became a team in our pregnancy and made us feel like "WE" were doing this instead of just me. Our class gave us confidence that we had the knowledge on how to handle anything that came our way. Because of this, we look back on Austin's birth with such joy and happiness.

We were so grateful for our childbirth training during the birth of our daughter. Being able to recognize and understand what was happening to my body during labor removed much of the fear, and my husband was well-equipped to support and coach me throughout a difficult induction. Thanks to Julie's teaching, our birth experience was the most beautiful, rewarding day of our lives. We'd highly recommend her class to any expectant parents.

We took the Natural Childbirth course with Julie and just completed the "refresher" for our second pregnancy. We felt very prepared for our first birth and had a perfect, natural birth. The refresher helped us remember our first birth in greater detail and restored our confidence that we can do this again!

Soon after finding out we were pregnant with our first baby, I decided I wanted a natural birth. Julie Olson's Natural Birth classes were not only informative, but fun and enjoyable, and we looked forward to our Monday evenings with her and the other couples. About halfway through the course, we found out that I would need to have a c-section due to placenta previa, but we decided to complete the course anyway, in case by some chance I'd still be able to deliver naturally. Julie was always there to provide us extra information on c-sections, and was willing to help us outside of class. Although we didn't have the natural birth we wanted, we were still able to use a lot of the relaxation and visualization tools we learned from Julie's class, especially with pain management. We gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and are grateful for Julie's help and support, even post-partum. I rave about Julie's classes to anyone who will listen, and highly recommend her course to all those interested in a natural birth.
