What Other's are Saying
Abagail's insights into specific aspects of pregnancy, labor/delivery and her experience as a homebirth midwife were invaluable to this course!
What other's are saying
This course by far exceeded every expectations, conscious or unconscious. Lisa and Abigail had a beautifully synergistic energy that made the class flow with ease. Both were also a treasure trove of wisdom and knowledge which was incredibly inspiring. Every question was met with sincerity, love and an openness and vulnerability that made it feel as if you were with wise women of a tribe you had been a part of since birth rather than with women you had met a few days earlier. I couldn't recommend this class and these teachers enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Selah, Pregnancy Training

Overall it was a really lovely experience. As is often with trainings like this, a group of strangers in the beginning feels like family in the end, and it had a lot to do with the instructors. I was thrilled with the amount of hands on work, practice, and anatomy review. I really left feeling confident to begin giving this work and talking about the lineage of it all. Megan, LMT ~ Arvigo Self Care Training
Loved it. It has really stoked a curiosity in me into a roaring fire. Loved it for so many reasons. Location, food, accommodation, care for each other, support, mutual respect and safety. Also, I have been apprehensive about the right time, as I have two young boys. If I were to go away for a full week, this is exactly how I would want to spend my time. The assistant's knowledge, support and anecdotes were supremely valuable. I wonder if all ATMAT teachers work together so well. I imagine so, but this is to say that I was thoroughly impressed. Also, I loved all the teacher's humor; they didn't take themselves too seriously. Professional Care Training Student, NH location
Lisa has a wealth of information and I have learned a lot from her. I like the real cases that she presented in class. The best part was being able to see and touch a real placenta!!! The place was very convenient and the space was beautiful and had great energy. Ashley, RMT, Delray Beach Arvigo, Pregnancy & Postpartum Training
