“The Comfort Techniques class had so many great techniques that we were able to practice and the handouts to remind us in labor. I am more excited about my upcoming birth now after this class and my husband and doula feel more prepared to support me.” Kari

“This class helped me feel less anxious about labor and pain. I have more faith I can do this.” Melissa

When asked why she partners with Guiding Star Orange City, Amaris answered, “I chose to partner with Guiding Star Orange City because I believe God made
a woman’s body with the ability to both birth and feed her baby naturally and am passionate about providing holistic care options to women and their
families through the very special time of pregnancy and birth, as well as protecting and supporting a culture of life!”
