    Hi, Rachel. This webinar will positively benefit women who survived abuse. I was wondering if you have a birth class or resource materials specifically targeted for men? Though there is one suggested by a friend, the Birth for Men, I’m looking for options. My wife wants me to be on her birth team. I want to make sure I’m ready and useful during that day. Thanks so much for your time.
