The different birth experiences of my three sons, changed my life.
I abandoned my career as Interior Designer and got Certified as a Childbirth Educator. I was teaching Lamaze, and then when I started teaching low income women I felt something was missing. I looked for other options and I found Pam’s book. Great!
