Stephanie taught our birth class before Beckham was born and it was one of the two most beneficial things we did to prepare for his birth (the other one is hire a doula. I've said it once I'll say it a thousand times: HIRE A DOULA.) Stephanie's way of teaching was a combination of science/the physiological process of birth, different ways to cope with labor (we were given many tools and felt so confident that SOMETHING would help, and I was so grateful for those tools when they did in fact help me in labor), encouragement through scripture that God used to calm nerves and push away thoughts of worry and insecurity, humor (because this lady is hilarious and just has a way with words), and faith that is tangible. You learn about how to be confident in the beautiful design that God created birth to be.
We can't say enough wonderful things about this class, Stephanie, and New Creation Birth Services. This is also who we hired our doula and placenta encapsulator through and all of the women in this group are gems. They have doulas, childbirth educators, birth photographers, a placenta encapsulator, and now a nutritionist. So many wonderful resources. They serve people of all belief systems and their love for their clients mirrors the love of Christ. Thankful for these ladies!
