    Quote from a past participant:

    I just wanted to reach out to you because I have done so many trainings in my career as I am sure you have- and I wasn’t even planning on taking any courses as I have such a busy schedule (as I am sure you can understand as well!) I saw this come up and decided to take it.

    I am so happy I did.

    A big part of my job over the years is dealing with parents struggling with substance use during pregnancy and early parenthood and breastfeeding.

    I loved the way you shared your personal stories intertwined in this training, it was done in such beautiful, helpful way.

    I feel like there is always a dance between oversharing and sharing in a good way, when sharing our own personal experiences. The way you shared was very beneficial and beautiful and I believe a true gift to those taking the course.”
