Class Participant Feedback

Thank you so much for being fun, patient and real.  The way you spoke and answered questions made me feel comfortable and valuable.  Thank you for setting such a wonderful example of how we treat and teach others.  - September, 2010 Birth Doula Skills Workshop participant


I am on the path to become an OB, and did not feel at all as though doulas are at odds with OBs based on the attitude presented by you and the rest of Seattle Midwifery School. That was a great relief to me as I had worried that I would be outcast for going the medical route. You, specifically, seem like a great person to fuse these two communities: medical and non-medical, as your doula philosophy seemed to me to be very woman centered, but yet no-nonsense. - May, 2010 Labor Support Course participant
