“Moran was very caring through all our classes and answering any questions was never too much. She made both myself and my partner feel ready and at ease for the birth of our baby to come. Highly recommend her services.”
“Moran is amazing! I rang her at 34 weeks (3 weeks before Christmas) freaking out that I wasn’t going to be prepared to have my baby and she was able to make time for my husband and I to have some intensive sessions. They were informative, relevant and up to date to help us make the best decisions for our birth. She is calm, kind and understanding of all the possible fears new parents might be holding on to. My husband found her to be inclusive and supportive, while giving him the knowledge that he sorely needed to act as my voice during the birth. She has increased our confidence 10 fold heading into what used to feel like ‘the unknown’. Thank you Moran!”
“All natural birth has a purpose and a plan; who would think of tearing open the chrysalis as the butterfly is emerging? Who would break the shell to pull the chick out?” ~ Marie Mongon
