My husband and I had the joy of attending Janet's pregnancy classes. Not only was it informative, but it was also fun. Probably what we enjoyed most was the small group. It was just us and another couple at the time. This allowed us to be able to receive the education that fit our specific needs.
Thank you so much Janet!
This is the place to go for trainings and classes. Janet, the owner and certified instructor, does a phenomenal job at teaching in a fun and respectful manner. I know I'm going to enjoy my time spent with her and that I'm getting a quality education based on her wisdom and experience. You can trust that if you sign up for classes or training with Bellies 2 Babies you will feel more confident in you knowledge and skills.
I definitely recommend every expecting, mom and Dad takes one of Janet’s birthing class. She has lots of classes to fit everyone’s needs and she is knowledgeable and experienced. Being first-time parents Janet taught my husband and I many things during this process. She guided us about what to expect with the journey of pregnancy, and the birthing process. After taking one of her birthing classes my husband and I left feeling more educated and more at peace with the process knowing what to expect. Her support is MUST HAVE.
