This being my first pregnancy, my husband and I were a little anxious about facing the unknown. Denise really put our minds at rest and through her informative classes and availability to answer questions, we felt really prepared. During labor she was a peaceful presence, using various methods of relaxation to help me through the toughest moments. She continues to keep in touch and I consider her a dear friend.
