Testimonials

"I attended your “Expecting in NYC Seminar” this summer when I was about 16 weeks pregnant. Up to that date I thought I had all the time in the world regarding birthing options and trusted that my OBGyn would tell me what to do. The seminar helped me greatly in making informed decisions and pro-actively planning the birth my own way. I also made German speaking friends to share the experience with. I highly recommend your seminar and plan to attend many more City Kinder networking events."Petra S.-C. (due December 2013)

"My husband and I are expecting our first child in mid March. CityKinder Seminars have been a great way to get ready for this big step in our life. We highly appreciate the wide range of topics which is not limited to the standard birthing class. CityKinder focusses on the "every day" topics one might not think of in the first place."Svenja F.

"The seminar helped a lot! The atmosphere was great."Romy
