Our Classes Welcome Parenthood With Confidence!
“My husband and I took ABQ Doula’s “Birthing with Confidence” prenatal class and it has been one of the most worthwhile experiences we could have done before our baby boy arrived. Tracy is a wonderful educator and we have learned so much, she even answered questions we didn’t know we had! We feel much more prepared for our labor and newborn experience. We definitely recommend this class and Tracy’s services to everyone.” Jayne K, Albuquerque NM
“ABQ Doulas were our first choice for online birthing classes – my partner and I learned so much! Tracy and her team’s knowledge and insight were not only valuable, but it was also inclusive for POC families. I highly recommend ABQ Doulas for parents in need of prenatal classes.” -Niyia Mack, Santa Fe, New Mexico
