As I continue my work in the field of Childbirth Education and Support I am convinced that helping women have a satisfying birth experience is a very important part of my job! I do this by teaching classes that are evidence based, simple and practical and that can help expecting parents make decisions based on knowledge of their options. A Day You'll Never Forget: is based on a study of women from Penny's Childbirth Ed classes and their birth stories from right after birth and then 20 years later. These stories had a profound impact on Penny and she shares her feelings on the topic of birth experiences and their effect on women after giving birth and throughout their lives.
Penny Simkin has been teaching and working in the field since the 1960's and has taught and supported 100's of women, authored numerous books and studies, educates other professionals and is highly regarded as an expert in her field. She is also a co-founder of DONA (Doulas of North America). Penny hails from the Pacific Northwest which is very lucky for us!!
