Just imagine my rosy cheeks and huge grin when these beautiful people praised my work! Affirmation is my love language!
"She was so informative and individualized everything for my exact needs. I wish I had taken her class for my first birth as I feel like it would have made such a difference but I’m so glad I was at least able to take it for my second! Highly recommended for any expecting parent, especially those with little knowledge of what to expect, your rights, birthing choices/interventions or about managing anxiety during labor."
"We are feeling much more confident in our birth plan after taking our birth class with Lexy. I am so glad I decided to reach out to her and schedule a class. We had taken a birth class during my first pregnancy but it was nothing like Lexy’s class. She is very passionate about birth, supporting expecting parents, and educating others. No matter what your birth plans are, or how it ends up, Lexy will provide you with the confidence you need to give birth and make informed decisions during your birth process. We highly recommend her classes to any expecting parents!"
"I truly can’t say enough wonderful things about Lexy and her class! She dug into so much helpful information for my husband and I that we left feeling better prepared and confident about our upcoming birth. We had taken a birthing class previously, but it was nothing compared to this. She made us feel right at home in a beautiful relaxed environment, along with her fun and welcoming personality. I definitely recommend anyone looking into a birthing class to reach out to her!"
"My husband and I cant say enough about Lexy and her evidence based birthing classes! We both feel excited and prepared for our upcoming birthing experience because of the information she provided us with. Lexy provides you with information on your entire pregnancy journey including postpartum in her classes. This was so helpful to me because I felt like no one really talks about postpartum issues and challenges. She has also been a huge supporter for me after the classes still making herself available to answer all my questions and encouraging me through the last few weeks of my pregnancy. She provides information in a non-biased way and is super fun and bubbly while doing so! If you take her classes you wont regret it!"
"I have heard Lexy speak about birth and her class. She has SUCH a great way of helping you think, “That’s so true!” And “Wow! I didn’t know that!” or “I didn’t realize that! That is info that would be incredible to know going into birth!” As a Lactation Consultant, I have had some of my clients tell me that Lexy made a HUGE difference in the outcome and how they felt about their labor and delivery. She provides wonderfully relevant, evidence-based education and is incredibly empowering. No matter the birth you want or plan to have, attending Lexy’s classes will equip you with a plethora of information to help you feel confident and informed."
"Oh my gosh I could rave about Lexy and her amazing birth course foreeeeeeever! If you’re debating whether or not to take her course.. stop right now and go sign up bc you will be SO glad you did!!! We went into the birth of our perfect baby completely informed and even the nurses and staff were so impressed when they’d go to explain something and we already understood and knew what they were talking about! It doesn’t matter if you’re planning an unmedicated, epidural, planned cesarean birth, whatever— Lexy welcomes everyone into her beautiful and cozy space with open arms and a full heart to passionately and enthusiastically share every bit of information you could need to prepare for your baby’s journey into the world! I now have an awesome binder full of great handouts from her course and we are so knowledgeable about every aspect of birth! Her teaching style is super laid back and all questions are always welcome! She has snacks and drinks ready for her students each class and let me bring my 10 yr old sister with me sometimes which I so appreciated! My sister loved it too!! I am so glad to have met such a sweet and genuine person and had the opportunity to learn so much from her and now am so thankful to call her my friend!"
"My husband and I are expecting our first child any day now, and just completed the 8 week course. Going into my upcoming labor and delivery I have so much peace. I understand what’s happening to my body, learned methods to cope, and learned how to make my delivery a positive experience even if things don’t go “according to plan.” Also, I don’t want to fail to mention that we went over much more than delivery. We covered infant feeding cues, breastfeeding, baby wearing, postpartum, and so much more. The classes honestly fly by! I highly recommend this class to any expecting parent!
"I enjoyed how open to conversation the classes were. We never felt discouraged to ask questions. Having all the resources at our fingertips, makes us very confident going into the labor process."
"Everyone needs more than the general 3 hour class. I feel much more confident after going through this class.”
"I really enjoyed Lexy's enthusiasm and passion. It kept me engaged and encouraged. I looked forward to every class, every time."
"We loved every minute of our class with Lexy! My husband and I walked away feeling educated and confident about evidenced based birthing practices which was really important to us before delivering our second child. She presents information in an easy-to-understand manner and offers many resources for further study. I really wish we would have studied Lamaze with our first child, but I am so glad we found Lexy to help us ensure we are making the best decisions for “us” the second time around. Highly recommend! Oh, I forgot to mention how incredibly comfortable I felt the entire time I was there. The most adorably decorated, relaxing space, with snacks and drinks. Best experience I could have asked for."
"Lexy McElfresh from I CAN! Birth impressed us with her insight, knowledge, and matter-of-fact presentation last week. If you or someone you know are expecting, even if it's not your first child, consider contacting her about Lamaze classes she provides. It's WAY more than learning how to breathe. Lexy helps families to be knowledgeable and empowers them to discover what kind of birth THEY want."
"I wish that all women who are pregnant had a positive voice in their ear, saying, "The birth you want is possible and I will help you know how to fight for it." Take the I CAN! BIRTH class, and have that voice. All women are capable of having a positive birth experience. No matter where you plan to birth (hospital, home, birthing center) and no matter with whom (doctor, nurse midwife, midwife etc.), knowledge will be YOUR POWER and it will EMPOWER YOU to fight for what you need and what you want. If some part of your "planned" birth changes, you need the tools and knowledge to still have a positive experience."
