Terry Richmond is a certified childbirth educator. She uses her experience as an active labor support doula, yoga instructor, and mother to offer a well-rounded, accessible curriculum. As a doula, she has assisted couples through a very wide range of birth choices and experiences. It is her goal to teach the full spectrum of options a couple has when preparing for their birth, and then to support them unconditionally.  In the case that Terry is attending a birth, another certified childbirth educator will teach the class in her place.

Ayelet Kaznelson, IBCLC (International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant), CD (DONA) has 16 years experience as a lactation consultant. Ayelet teaches group and private prenatal breastfeeding classes, newborn care and has also developed a comprehensive lactation workshop for doulas. Her philosophy and practice is holistic, non judgmental yet evidence-based.

Geoff Gohacki has been a professional chef and teacher for over 15 years and first became interested in emergency response after preforming first aid on one of his students.

A student before a teacher, Geoff is constantly researching and learning the newest techniques in CPR, AED, First Aid and Child Passenger Safety.
