Beautiful Teaching Materials
We love using Plumtree baby for childbirth education and the booklets are a great resource for our doula clients that just need a little refresher before baby comes. The graphics are beautiful and such a good visual representation of pregnancy, labor and birth.
Preparing for birth book
I have only used it (given it) to one CBE student and will have to ask for feedback from her. However, I think the graphics are great and information is complete and accurate.
Preparing for Birth Book
I used this book in all of my classes and love it. The color photos are great, and the information is the best.
Great book. Difficult to order
Used to be easy with direct shopping to clients. That function is no longer available so each client has to be a separate order
