"What a brilliant idea! My 'parents to be' were excited about having this book for their childbirth class because of its colorful layout and online features. The book can be used during class, and the website is a wonderful way to supplement class material at home and to review topics after the class has concluded."
- Kim Fuhrman, RN, Longmont United Hospital Birthing Center


"All that I can say is FABULOUS!!! Our patrons really liked the website, and they are a huge resource for them during, as well as after, the class."
- Try Banks, Emory University Hospital Midtown


"The website is an interactive text that provides up-to-date information on challenges and choices in childbirth. This is an ideal resource text for anyone attending prepared childbirth classes. It would be an excellent resource as well for women on bed rest."
- Jane Hentzen, RNC, BSN, FACCE
