What Others Are Saying About Us

20-Gault-20“It was such a pleasure to take your class! Honestly before Friday I was dreading it since the hospital tour was so overwhelming for me, but your class was fun and had great information. I was thankful you didn’t dwell on the unpleasant/scary aspects of labor or parenting (and very grateful you didn’t show a birth video!), you did such a great job presenting the relevant information. Jamie and I are so excited, but I also have no illusions on how hard parenting is going to be. But after the class, I feel better prepared and I’m also so thankful to be delivering at Evergreen. It’s so nice to have such confidence in my health care team.”

“I highly recommend PTN classes because the information is practical, concise and the class is relaxed and casual, yet very informative. Nicole is a great educator and my patients feel better prepared for their labor experience and more confident in caring for their newborn baby. “

“One of the best parts of the class was how much advice and support you had for spouses. I think a lot of spouses feel cut out of the process since it’s not happening to them every day and I appreciate your encouragement to the men to realize that their ‘presence’ and everyday support means so much. We really enjoyed the class. Thanks for such an encouraging experience! I am slightly less terrified now.”

-Genevieve B.


“I love these classes because of the small intimate group setting and my patients become well informed about what to expect. Patients’ questions are answered and their fears calmed by the staff of PTN…I love your class and staff! Thanks for taking great care of all of our patients!”

 -Dr. Jean Dydell
Eastside OB/GYN


“Thank you again for a great and informative class today. DJ and I are both feeling much more prepared and ready to meet and bring Miss Olivia home. I really appreciate all you talked about. I couldn’t think of anything you could have done better!”

We tried to prepare for the arrival of our baby boy, Graham, by reading several parenting and breastfeeding books. Although we learned a lot through our own research, there’s something about attending a class with an amazing teacher that really breathes life into those techniques. I personally loved the tips on what to expect during labor and the breathing exercises we practiced. My husband thoroughly enjoyed learning how to swaddle and unit on holding your baby correctly.

The structure of the class was also very helpful. My husband works late nights, and being able to attend a weekend class together was very important to us.   We also felt very at home with all of the other couples in attendance, and truly treasured having an instructor that let us ask any crazy question we could possible think of. Thank you, Nicole for preparing our nest.”

“We received a lot of new information, which would prepare us for the knowns and the unknowns. Good information about birthing and post-partum care.”

-Deb & Sneha


“I loved the insights into the view of the delivery process from an RN perspective.”

-Jenny & Tony


“My patients have nothing but great things to say about Prepare the Nest. They have told me it really helped them understand and ready for the childbirth process.”
