After training and mentoring birth professionals for 10+ years, Ruth Kraft wanted to continue to improve on her training skills and content in all her professional training’s. She continually looks for the most current content and evidence based information to give the best workshops and trainings she can.  As an Evidence Based Birth Instructor, she is actively teaching not only new parents all over Florida, but also travels around the country to train birth professionals of all kinds.  She has found a love in this professional field more than she realized she would and it continues to feed her passion to help women and continue to watch the ripple effect happen.  She will always continue to work with outreach programs, non-profits, and focus on getting those who need help, the guidance and help they need in the community. She believes that being as inclusive as possible, and encouraging a huge shift to change the racial disparities we have in this country.   Together, we will  change the world.
