"As a practicing OB/GYN for 20 years the PPNE program has changed the way she practices. This change includes interaction with her clients, education and clinical practice. She considers the merit of an intervention before suggesting it. She particularly noted her induction rate and augmentation, which was practically routine is now almost nil. She has found her c section rate to have dropped as well." ~ Divya Deswal, PPNE Mentor, from an exit interview with a recent graduate

"This course has brought lots of changes in me and in my obstetrics practice. My life also changed, I feel more responsible, sympathetic, compassionate,committed, and more patient now. As an obstetrician, I can now take better care of womb ecology. Thank you for giving me the opportunity,and also giving me a depth of knowledge of our unborn angels. Thank you very much! Warm regards," ~ Dr. Rajashri Kabra, Consultant obstetrician, India

“A life changing educational program both personally & professionally that has allowed our PPNE graduates to serve the need of babies and their families in our communities and beyond. Nothing feels more satisfying then knowing we are supporting parents to nurture the whole child from the beginning.”

~ Nina Ketscher, MA, PPNE, CEIM, Former Director of Education APPPAH

"The PPNE program has profoundly impacted me. After years of working as a mental health counselor, I felt a growing need to work pro-actively to help prevent trauma. APPPAH provided the foundation for this. It became very clear how to prevent trauma in the earliest stages of life. I am now aware of the importance a peaceful birth, as well as the power of bonding. I am able to help my clients heal at a deeper level, while also clearing family lineages, to stop transgenerational trauma. The program also expanded my awareness of the conscious and intelligent nature of the unborn baby. It allowed me to dare to communicate with these beings, which unfolded healing otherwise not accessible. Personally, I have become more confident and enthusiastic about starting a family. The program was beyond educational. It was truly enlightening." -- Elizabeth Wasserman, Psychologist, Chicago, IL
