"Julie's CBE training provides an up to date, well rounded basis for starting to teach Childbirth classes. Her experience and knowledge in the field are extensive. What was more important to me is that the information is presented in an open,comfortable, sharing environment. Julie allows open discussion on topics and still keeps the class on task and focused. I loved that she walked us through planning our actual classes. For me, the marketing component was invaluable. She clearly cares about her students having successful businesses. Knowing exactly how to use the information you learn to go home and start a business, means you can dive right in. We left a roomful of empowered women on a mission to help families have great birth experiences."
