“As a Reflexology Therapist, I was interested in taking Linda Baril’s Assisting Women Through Their Childbearing Year workshop for a couple of reasons.  First, because my daughter-in-law was pregnant and I hoped it would be beneficial in helping her through her labour and delivery. I also felt it would be a great addition to my Reflexology practice. Well, the course was beyond what I ever imagined.  Linda’s passion was contagious and the weekend was filled with so much information and true to life stories that made the learning exciting!  The manual that we were given is unbelievable!  I have taken many workshops in the past and this resource/manual is chalk-full of information, pictures and references! Linda’s workshop and passion have inspired me so much that I have moved forward and am taking a Birth Doula training now.  Linda continues to mentor and inspire me.  I am looking forward to taking more courses with Linda.”

“Linda’s workshop was eye-opening in so many ways.  Her passion for supporting childbearing women through pregnancy, labour/delivery and postpartum really comes through, inspired by her many years of experience.  I personally feel inspired and excited about bringing these new techniques into my Massage and Reflexology practice.  After several months of doing so, it has been a total game-changer!  This workshop lit a certain “fire” in me that reminded me why I do the work that I do and how important it is to support pregnant women and new moms.”
