I was very lucky to start working with expectant moms at the same time that I was in school receiving my training.  One of my classmates became pregnant early in the year and we were able to take her through her pregnancy from beginning to end.  It made me truly appreciate how much the mommy to be really can benefit from this work!  Since then I've worked with dozens of moms throughout their pregnancies and gotten additional training with Clarie Marie Miller and her Nurturing the Mother advanced training (see more at www.clairemariemiller.com) seminars.
