    I took Liz’s birthing class in the summer of 2014 when my partner and I were expecting our little girl and in preparation for our natural birth at home. I cannot rave enough about how empowering this class was for me on so many levels. First, it completely demystified the birthing process in the biological sense. Liz explained to us how everything worked, what happens to the body as mom gets into labor and afterwards. I remember how she insisted on showing us how our bodies are meant to do this and everything from mom’s body to chemistry to baby are working together. Then, she planted seeds that came to full bloom during my labor and helped me have the smoothest birth. Her view on what contractions are and how they are inviting us to complete surrender and breathing, all that came back so naturally and beautifully during labor. Finally, at the time this class was in-person and there were 5 couples. We were all expecting our first child. Of these 4 other expecting moms, 3 have become some of my closest  friends. I would have never known that at the time but 3 moms from that group have been and still are a HUGE part of my life and a source of great joy as we all moved into motherhood together, breastfeeding, raising children, evolving in our romantic relationships, etc. And the icing on the cake is Liz herself. She is a gentle force of nature. I have never met anyone with the ability to hold so much loving space. She is the epitome of kindness and generosity, she will make you feel instantly at home and safe, answering any concerns or questions you might have. All she wants is for you to have your special birth. Whether it is with her or somewhere else. Liz is a wealth of knowledge about anything birth-related and she knows and can refer you to experts for everything else! Liz has brought more babies to this world that we can count! I want to close by saying that more than anything, Liz and Gracefull are connectors and bring families together, creating strong, empowered communities of parents. I know that she will continue to do that whether her classes are in-person or online. Truly, this class is a must if you are wanting to have a natural birth in hospital, birthing center, or at home.

    Elizabeth’s Child Birth Ed class was exceptional. I felt intellectually informed on what the body was capable of and what all the possibilities were for labor and child birth. My partner and I felt empowered to advocate for what kind of birth we wanted. Child Birth Ed class created a deep trust in my body’s ability to birth naturally, which we ultimately did accomplish. I recommend this course to any first time mothers, it was so comprehensive.

    – Danielle Bigby –

    “Childbirth Ed was the one class in which my husband and I attended together, so it brought us onto the same page about things, which was invaluable.  It taught us the ins and outs of what to expect, and gave us space to ask vulnerable questions.  We also met new friends that we are close to this day and who were a resource for connection once the babies were born.”
