Our Happy Families

Katie was a lifesaver and helped get me through those rough first weeks as a first time mom. I always knew I wanted to breastfeed, and she gave me the knowledge and confidence to have faith in my body. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.

My husband and I had mixed emotions about taking Prenatal Classes, we weren’t sure it was worth the time.  The class was so great at the end everyone stood up and clapped!  It was fun and we learned so much and are so thankful we took the class.  We highly recommend the Babies First Prenatal Classes to anyone and everyone expecting we meet.  Take the class, trust us you will be so happy you did!

– Dianne and Anthony
Once we started feeding our daughter solid foods there were a few gagging episodes that had us so nervous we stopped solid feeding until we could learn CPR.  We felt panicked that would wouldn’t know what to do if something happened.  We took the Baby/Child CPR Workshop and learned so much information not just about choking and CPR rescues but about emergencies like cuts, and poisoning.  We loved the workshop and think every parent should take it.

– Sarah and Eric
When I called you, I had had enough of breast feeding, but I wasn’t ready to give up, and then you came over and were amazing. You put everything into perspective, you gave me the guidance I needed, you were always there when I had a question/concern. I am so happy that I was able to call upon you! Because of you, ‘J’ has been a happy breastfed baby for the past year, because of you, I haven’t dumped hundreds of dollars towards buying formula, he’s so healthy, has never really gotten sick, apart from a common cold, and if he did he would bounce back quickly. We have this amazing bond, which I will cherish forever. I am so lucky to have had this experience, and I thank you and your support. This must be a passion of yours, because that would explain the perfectionism in your work. Thank you for coming into my life and helping me with one of the hardest, most wonderful things I have ever done.
