I had the pleasure of having @[4800524:2048:Tabitha Ames] as my child birth educator. She was able to describe the stages of labor, share techniques for coping with child birth, and explain child birth interventions thoroughly without judgement. I love to read, and had read hundreds of books about pregnancy and childbirth by the time I took Tabitha's class. Despite this, I was able to learn so many technique which I used to cope with my unmedicated labor. Her class also facilitated a warm atmosphere, and I was able to make a number of friends who I continue to see. The day I delivered my baby Tabitha was teaching another class in the birth center, and I was able to invite her in for a few minutes to offer support. It was so wonderful to share that experience with her. I am happy to think of Tabitha as a friend and would refer her to anyone looking for a childbirth class or doula.
