"This class was a safe space for my husband and I to connect to each other and to our baby. I found it to be a great compliment to a childbirth education course. My husband was able to learn a lot of stuff that we do in yoga class that we can now do together when I go into labor. It was great to practice these skills in a peaceful, supportive environment." -A.B. 33 weeks pregnant with first baby
