What people are saying about this class:

“We took the childbirth preparation class with Vera over 4 evenings and it was amazing! It helped us approach our first birth with a lot more confidence and feeling empowered to make the choices that matter to us. Vera’s also super funny and disarming which helps with a subject matter that can feel anxious at times. I would highly recommend this class!” – Derek.
