The class exceeded my expectations. There was a sense of community within the group. We looked forward to each class and often stayed after to speak with other couples and our instructor. We feel we are prepared to know what to expect for our labor and birth experience. I’m recommending this class to everyone.
I knew what I wanted (a safe delivery and a healthy baby) and I knew what I didn’t want (a painful recovery). Amy, through her class and support, helped fuse my desires into an amazing birth experience. I fully expected an out-of-control experience, like on TV, of yelling at my husband and screaming at the nurses. In all actuality, it was a very calm event because we BOTH knew what to expect and how to handle it. Amy encouraged the kind of communication where we wouldn’t have to talk … and didn’t. We didn’t really understand the benefits of a doula … encouragement doesn’t even begin to describe how Amy helped us achieve such an incredible way for our son to enter this world.
Amy was very passionate about what she does. She always offered to explain things more fully if we wanted and she always offered articles and videos to help educate us. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience than the one we had in Amy’s class.
This class was an incredible experience that we would highly recommend. The strength and knowledge that both of us gained from this class provided the essential foundation for us to have a natural birth. Knowledge is power and this class provided a safe, confidential environment for learning, asking questions, and participating in conversations and activities that helped us through our childbirth. We personally thank Amy for sharing her knowledge and experiences with us.

We loved our birth experience with Amy. After taking the class we felt prepared and ready for the whole birthing process. We appreciated the holistic approach and the information that it provided us with. Amy is genuine, caring and passionate about this topic and it makes the class that much better. She is a knowledgeable instructor who presents both sides of the information, is available and very willing to help or answer any questions. We felt cared for by her not just as students, but people. Even right before labor, during and after, she was available to answer questions and encourage us. We highly recommend taking this class from Amy Brooks Murphy!

Amy’s class was a wonderful part of my pregnancy and our birth experience. I learned a lot about myself, my husband and my baby and really bonded with fellow first timers. By far the most amazing result of the classes was that I did not feel alone throughout labor and birth, I knew that Amy and everyone was with me in spirit. Thank-you Amy!!-Laura and Mike
We couldn’t be more pleased with you Amy. We learned so much and felt so prepared. We will tell our kids about you someday.
We learned how to relax, to trust my body, and perhaps more importantly, we learned that we were not alone in demanding a natural birth from a hospital system that seems determined to turn birth into a medical event. Amy spoke from her own experiences and from the experiences of previous students. Her calm confidence that we were equipped with helped us accomplish what we wanted and it helped us maintain our confidence as well.

Amy loves childbirth and it is very evident through the presentation of the course material. I gained the confidence that i could have my baby naturally without drugs.
i wasn’t totally sure what the class would teach me after already having taken a childbirth class at a local hospital. i was pleasantly surprised! amy brooks-murphy was a wonderful instructor who did an excellent job teaching the class and i learned a lot of new information that the hospital class didn’t provide. i also enjoyed the smaller, more intimate setting of the class, which was conducive to having all of our questions and concerns addressed. i would very much recommend this class to anyone considering natural childbirth.
We loved class! Amy answered questions and gave great suggestions and advice.

Amy, I would like to thank you for everything that you taught us. You are a very good instructor.
Amy has a passion for this part of life and has gone to great lengths to be extremely knowledgeable on this topic.
It was a great class! Our comfort level increased so much due to all the lessons and advice.
Amy is truly a blessing. Her knowledge of the birth process and babies is amazing. We loved going to class each week and learning about different parts of the birth. Everyone in class got to know each other and looked forward to sharing our stories as babies were born. The atmosphere in class was very inviting and we felt comfortable asking any questions we had, no matter how silly they seemed. We highly recommend Amy and this class for anyone looking for something different and more natural in the birth process. It was a fantastic experience for us!

We had taken a course at an area hospital for the birth of our daughter
several years ago. The labor and birth did not go well and ended in a
C-Section. With our second child, we wanted to be more prepared as we
attempted a V-BAC. With Amy’s class we were completely prepared and the
labor progressed much better.
