"If there ever was a handbook on parenting, this class would be it. I have 7 children from ages 7 to 27. I've been raising kids since I was 13 and I'm 42 now. So imagine how shocked I was when I realized how much I didn't know about raising kids. Ms. Ruth is very gifted with the way she delivers the lesson. I strongly recommend this class."

"I have to admit I was skeptical at first, but I couldn't have been more wrong about the Any Baby Can program. My parenting class instructor was a burst of positive energy and KNOWLEDGE. I found myself excited waiting for my class to begin. I recommend Any Baby Can to every parent I meet!"

"I love Shelley’s childbirth class. She has a way of explaining and simplifying topics and questions while including everything from hospital birth to home birth, and singles to multiples. There were laboring positions for those with partners and without partners. Overall very diverse. I am very confident now as a first-time mom and I even feel I can help other moms!"
