    Comment:  Tricia is wonderful. Warm, knowledgeable, flexible, and supportive, we would recommend her comprehensive childbirth classes to any expectant parents. I would say that my husband and I in particular could have used more info about newborn care before our baby came, but Tricia's focus is on birth itself, so we probably should have just taken a newborn care class in addition!

    Comment:  I'm so grateful we took this class. It was geared specifically toward home birth and helped us be more prepared and gave my husband all the tools to be an amazing doula for me since ours couldn't come due to covid

    Comment:  My partner and I attended Tricia’s home birth class. It was as important prep as my midwife appts. Tricia is a really skilled facilitator. I really connected with her view of pregnancy and postpartum. We also built close connections with the other participants.

    Comment:  For my first baby, we worked with Tricia Philips ( https://www.allowingbirth.com) and she was amazing. We ended up doing private sessions because my husband is a consultant and travels for work each week (er... used to...). Having her in our home was such a pleasure for those three sessions.We had a home birth so our classes were geared towards that, but I know she teaches about birth in all environments.As for when... I don’t really remember. I don’t think you can go wrong at any time though. You will definitely remember the parts that are important to you/stand out to you as particularly helpful when the time comes. And... she gave away a little packet of materials too so I could always look back on that if I forgot a recommendation. I’m guessing most spots do that as well.
