I want to take this opportunity to say how grateful I am to all the incredible teachers i've had the great fortune to meet in my life, and for their dedicated work on behalf of birthing mothers and families... Pictured above is Angelina Martinez with me on her lap! To the left is the wonderful Robin Lim singing to my baby in my belly! And below is the legendary Michel Odent with Liliana Lammers on the zoom course I did with them. Many thanks to all my teachers. You are my inspiration.
