Amy is a fabulous teacher and has an eloquent way of speaking about the unthinkable losses that occur all around us in our world. I would recommend this class to anyone, and it is a must for any health care provider working with women, families and in pregnancy settings.

I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have taken Holding Space for Pregnancy Loss. This is a difficult subject to engage, perhaps especially in an online format, but the level of warmth, compassion, community facilitation, and personal attention that Amy brought to this training was absolutely phenomenal.  ~ Claire Wilson, birth doula, Oregon
