Wonderful meeting up with all the amazing birth workers! Thank you to Rotem Pearlson

“I am so grateful to be an instructor at Blossom Birth and Family. I love teaching expectant parents the how and why to slow down in pregnancy and to prepare for their labor, birth and postpartum experiences. I try to make my classes vibrant and entertaining. I want anyone that comes to my class to feel more confident, in themselves and their own knowledge, to advocate for the birth experience they desire. My birthing philosophy is simple; 'Your Birth, Your Way.'”
