"I recommend Autumn Ingram, LMSW without reservation. Autumn’s blend of competence, knowledge and kindness is extraordinary. I would send my daughter, and her family, to Autumn in a flash and know that they were receiving excellent information, support, and /or guidance."

"Autumn is a wealth of knowledge—I took her cloth diapering workshop and went from feeling completely overwhelmed about potentially cloth diapering, to confidently planning to cloth diaper the daughter we were expecting. We also found Autumn to be really caring and supportive; she was incredibly patient in answering our questions and focused on helping our family figure out what was right for us. We’re looking forward to checking out her other workshops and postpartum support services!"

I recently took part in the Build Your Best Birth webinar, and I'm so thankful I did. I am not a parent, nor do I have plans to have children anytime soon, however this webinar opened my eyes to what options are available for me in the future. I left feeling confident and empowered. In speaking with Autumn, I discovered what I value to be important for myself when it come to bringing a human into this world, and most importantly the kinds of conversations I should think about having with my providers when the time comes. I highly recommend Autumn as she has so much knowledge to offer, and is able to truly guide you through any questions you may have. Beyond this webinar, I highly recommend bringing your partner in on the action if you are pregnant or hope to be in the future (or simply if you just want to learn about something new). This webinar as well as many others opens the door for conversations with your partner and planning for your future.
