Before ever meeting Ruth I assisted the LM I work with attending the birth of one of Ruth’s CBE clients, an interesting couple and if not for her support I wonder if they would have been a homebirth couple at all. It is refreshing to have an independent childbirth educator in the WPB area that supports natural childbirth and homebirth as choices. I first met Ruth online and was impressed with her photos.
After meeting her in person at a birth I was even more impressed. The empowerment I have since witnessed repeatedly in her clients is a clear reflection of the effectiveness of her classes and presence. She has that knack for intuitively knowing when to speak, when to touch, when to snap pictures, and when to stand back and be still. I look forward to working with Ruth in the future; she is an asset to the immediate birth environment and benefits the birth community.
