“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, 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
