Engaging and informative!

Rarely does one get this kind of perspective into the world of Labor and Delivery without either
being dull or venturing into the world of cringy pseudo-science. Shaina and Liz give you the inside scoop in a way that’s engaging like an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, but actually realistic. Highly recommended for new/expecting parents or anyone who just wants to understand this world from two knowledgeable and experienced nurses!

Love the Perspectives!

Loved hearing about your backgrounds, it was fun and knowledgable for women/partners/dads to understand how many aspects there are of the experience of giving birth! And how most people don’t realize how nurses play the biggest role in that experience! Well done ladies!

Love it!

Liz and Shaina have so much to share and are so inviting as they chat about their lives and experiences.
