Hi, Lauren! It's Nicole Vasquez. Just wanted to let u know that I gave birth to my beautiful boy this morning at 6:34am at St. Luke's birthing center. It was all natural (not one drug!) and absolutely looooong! (I started early labor Sunday) But I pushed through and we are all fine and healthy! Thanks so much for all the info you gave us. I used many of your techniques and you were sooo right when u said the squatting was every Mama's least fave move bc god knows I DID NOT want to do it, but it worked as did breathing through the lip and the one leg up birth move! Here are some pics. Much love to you! xx


"Thanks so much! Your class was amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!xx"
