I contacted Ruth for a potential virtual lactation course. She mentioned she had never done a virtual class before but was willing to give it a go and asked me to be patient with her (she was totally fine!). I am a Registered Nurse and wanted to take a lactation class but due to my work schedule, I wasn’t able to travel to her location. She is very professional and she did great with the virtual aspect! I learned so much from her! Her extensive amount of experience shines through with her various examples she can provide while teaching. I throughly enjoyed her class! She was very accommodating and I really appreciated her giving the virtual training a try! I would highly recommend Ruth’s class. She is very talented with teaching, kind, accommodating, knowledgeable, and full of experience!
Women Honoring Women’s owner, Ruth Kraft, is the first person I point expectant moms to when they begin to explore their options for childbirth. She has a deep knowledge of the various childbirth choices available today and is just as capable discussing hypnobirthing and natural birth methods as she is outlining the options available for medication based pain management in labor. With a deep respect for women, and their right to make an informed choice when it comes to how and where they labor, Ruth brings a wealth of experience to her role as childbirth educator, doula and lactation consultant. After many years of birth experience she still sees the wonder of each birth and can capture those moments beautifully through her gift for photography. If you are just wanting to explore your options, take classes or are ready to hire a doula then Ruth is a wonderful choice to support you during the exciting days ahead as you prepare for the birth of your child.
I recommend an educated Doula to all of the expectant couples I teach. Your Doula will educate you ahead of time, assist you though your labor, and introduce you to your new baby. Ruth Kraft is the one you want! Margie Forrest, RN, BSN, IBCLC, RLC
Meeting Ruth 13 years ago was such a blessing. She is talented, knowledgeable and caring. She was there for the birth of my healthy 12 yr old and thank heaven there for the traumatic premature birth of my now healthy 5 year old. She believed in me and made breastfeeding my preemie possible when everyone said it couldn’t be done. She is a true example of how women can empower one another and is the first to pick up someone when they are down. I am lucky to call her my friend all these years later and am forever grateful.
Ruth is a great doula and childbirth teacher. We found her seven years ago when I was pregnant with my first child and did a fantastic hypnobirthing class with her. We have used her services for hypnobirthing refresher classes for my other two pregnancies. What makes Ruth truly unique is that she is available to assist you in so many ways. My second pregnancy was stalled in early labor limbo and she suggested I see a wonderful chiropractor. Baby girl #2 was born peacefully the next day. She is a great resource and a great teacher.
Ruth Kraft is an amazing Doula, Childbirth Educator, mentor, and woman. Her scope of knowledge in the pregnancy/childbirth/postpartum world is what prompted me to choose her out of the many, many educators out there to further me in my training to become a Doula. Beyond that, she is always extremely willing to help out whenever I have reached out, and truly helps you feel empowered as a woman in any capacity. More importantly, her integrity and ethics are what make me feel like I could entrust her with myself, my baby, and my family.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Ruth her her being there at my delivery. She knew my birth plan and what I wanted and helped me stick to it and have a natural labor and delivery. Baby boy was 3wks early and she rearranged her plans so she could be there for his early birth. She also took some pressure off my husband by allowing him to attend to our toddler and not feel like he had to focus on me the entire time. We are planning at least one more child and would hire her again.
First of all, having a Doula at your birth is an amazing thing, in other words, it’s kind of a must! Doula Ruth Kraft is by far the best Doula I have come across in both my personal and professional opinion, being an OB nurse :-). She is so wonderful with clients and is such an empowering woman no matter what your birthing preferences are. It was so awesome having her by my side at my recent delivery and our birth pictures are absolutely breathtaking! She has also been instrumental in our breastfeeding success. I personally have had many breastfeeding issues along the way and she always gave the help and encouragement I needed. She is absolutely the best in my book 😉
Ruth is a well-known and well-respected educator in the community for good reason. The tools I learned during her doula training have proven to be invaluable. I am proud to say that I was trained by her, and I appreciate that she is available for continual help and support.
I took my labor doula course last year with Ruth, she is an incredible instructor. She provides so much knowledge and information, I respect her tremendously! You can’t go wrong having her as an instructor or a doula for that matter
