It gave me an understanding that I was lacking prior to attending and in turn improved my practice working with expecting and new families. I truly believe it should be mandatory for anyone working in maternal/child health."    - Jenn Goodwin CD(DONA), LCCE, CLE, President - Calgary Doula Association
