Reviews

“Lindsey’s baby and birth classes are fantastic. The information and ideas presented are empowering and interesting, and the process of finding community among other expectant parents in our community is so lovely. We’re grateful to live in a place where our co-op sees the value in offering classes that support the whole family, and featuring Lindsey and her classes is a beautiful way to do that.”
