This is what a former participant had to say about her experience with our Birth Well workshop:

I began seeing Houng during the 35th week of my second pregnancy for help with labour preparation, and found her to be extremely caring, attentive and professional. One of the great things she provided was a pamphlet with many illustrations and descriptions of acupuncture / acupressure points that could be used by my partner during labour, and in fact she demonstrated these to him when he came in for one of my sessions. We used these during my labour and I found them to be extremely calming and soothing, and the birth of my second son took five hours, as opposed to 25 hours for my first one!
