|What former students say...
Sherry was always extremely thorough and well-prepared for class. She
was willing to address our special concerns... And, she's a nice person to
I wanted to make sure that I stopped for a minute in between feedings and
diaper changing to thank you for the amazing experience we had ... Jared
and I thought a lot before we signed up for the classes. It was a huge time
and money investment for us, but we figured that this was such an important
time it would be worth it. And it was worth every penny! I have been telling everyone I know
about... how wonderful you were as a teacher!
I went into the classes with some childbirth knowledge (Jared really had none) but I found out
there was so much more that I didn’t know. Thanks for preparing us mentally and physically for
the challenge of childbirth. We both went into the experience confident and prepared. We had
worked through our fears and knew what to expect. Jared had joked for years that when it
came time for me to give birth, he would be cheering me on via satellite in the next room!
Instead of that, he was right by my side the entire time, confident, strong, and coaching me
through every step. I couldn’t have done it without him...
Not only did we learn a lot from your classes, but it really was a time where we grew closer
together as a couple. After every class we would talk for a long time about childbirth, what we
learned, the baby, and becoming parents. It was so much fun to learn about all of it together!
I’m thankful that I had a short labor (8 hours total) and although it was difficult and painful, it
never occurred to me throughout it that I would want an epidural. I knew how to relax through
each contraction and Jared knew how to coach me through each stage. And just when pushing
got to be very intense and I wanted it to stop – my beautiful baby boy was born! Labor was not
scary because I knew what to expect. And we were able to labor mostly at home, knowing when
in labor it would be necessary to head to the hospital (when I got there I was already 7 cm
dilated!). My labor experience was just what I hoped it would be and I’m sure a lot of that had to
do with how prepared we were.
And thanks for helping us through the very stressful process of changing doctors when I was 35
weeks pregnant! Because of what we learned in your classes, I found the midwives at UCLA
and had an amazing prenatal and childbirth experience with them! I was able to have the labor
and childbirth experience I wanted because of your help.
So thank you so much, Sherry, for helping our transition to parenthood a wonderful one! We
love little Dylan so much! I’m so happy that I was able to bring him into this world in the most
healthy and happy way possible! I can’t say enough about how thankful we are for you and the
classes! Thanks for doing what you do and for doing an amazing job!
Ellie Doud (and Jared and Dylan)
