Here is what others have said about the PPNE program:

"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 program truly enriched & changed my life. The deep support and awareness about my own birth story and holding space for mamas and babies…. Wow! I’ve been waiting my whole life! Thank you APPPAH! Much Love and Gratitude” ~ Sarah Dickey, PPNE, NBCC, Author, Hypnotherapist

"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.
