This has proved to be an excellent resource. Apparently, we use it a lot, because I am ordering a second video to replace the scratched one!

This series is great. The topics covered are extremely helpful and full of an array of important information for moms-to-be. Even clients who have already been through a previous pregnancy find the information valuable!

Good informational DVD. I notice many of the examples are married or older couples. Would like a younger version for our teen parents.

I had a client that is 12 weeks pregnant and her boyfriend came in yesterday for the lesson "Your Developing Baby". I love this lesson! They could see how the baby is developing in her womb at this point and I showed them the baby models. When I asked if she had any questions, she said her questions are answered on the DVDs. This is her first baby and she said she really likes these (Prenatal) classes because she doesn't know anything. Yeh for EWYL!!!
