20K+ Parents Made Boober Their Top Choice for Classes

"After taking birthing classes at Birthday Presence (which were great!) I reached out to their lactation consultant services once my son was 1 week old I had a ton of questions - and after texting their consultant line I was able to see someone in my home within a few hours! Cori came to the rescue - and not only gave me great hands-on breastfeeding advice, but also awesome practical new mom skills! Highly recommended - these ladies are a lifesaver!!!"

Beatrice G

"I've taken 3 virtual classes with Jada and they have been a lifesaver for me and my husband!We are expecting our first baby and have learned everything from lactation 101, infant sleep best practices, and childbirth basics all virtually. Thank you so much Jada!"

Katie Morelli

"Thanks for putting together a great class last night—very helpful and thought provoking. As an infant speech-language pathologist and first time parent, it was so important to me to receive evidence -based information to apply to my own birthing experience, and it was so valuable to be in an in-person environment with other birthing people. We have also used boober to connect us with our doula, Maria, and have only the best things to say about her knowledge and expertise."

Jocelyn Wood

"My husband and I were hesitant about taking any "birthing course" and could not have enjoyed this experience more Sasha. It was three hours long - traditionally a long time to focus for me! - but went by so fast. Everything she offered to our group was top level, important and clearly stated. For me, it just helped form an image of what it will roughly be like to give birth which helped a lot with any anxiety around it. Would recommend to all mom's to be and feel very grateful I had the opportunity"

Julitte Daley

"Boober's birth education class was moving and thorough and helpful. The teaching was excellent, price fair, and registration/communication was simple. I left the class feeling more prepared and more connected to my partner going into our baby's birth. I will definitely use Boober's other services, virtual and in-person, and recommend their advice and classes highly!"
