Hi! My name is Gianna and I visited Alight when I first found out I was pregnant in August 2019. I took the breastfeeding and birthing class to help prepare me and my husband for our baby’s arrival. I appreciate all the information I gained from taking the breastfeeding class with Connie and Debbie, I learned many new things that never even occurred to me before. The birthing class was extremely informative thanks to Akeria and her ability to answer all our questions about childbirth and show us some methods to help during labor. I feel much more confident and at peace about the labor and delivery process. I was also blessed by nurse Junette who made it possible for us to see our baby via ultrasound early on in my pregnancy. The ultrasound really helped me to know and understand the real-life truth that our baby was inside me even though he was just the size of a bean! It was crazy to think that God already had a mighty plan for our sweet little bean and all the other beans out there. I am beyond thankful for Alight and all they have done to help prepare and educate us for the arrival of our sweet baby boy.
I came across the Alight center when I was researching birthing classes online. I called and set up birthing classes and breastfeeding classes! I took breastfeeding classes with Deb and Connie and they went well. I learned something’s I didn’t know! I really enjoyed the birthing class the most because I feel like it prepared me a little more for birth. Akeria helped me put my birthing plan on paper. I learned some birthing ball exercises that actually really helped while I was in labor and was able to complete my birth plan as it was written out. I would highly recommend birthing class at the Alight center to anyone who is thinking about classes!! I felt ready when the time came and prepared! I have gone back to visit with the baby and I have used their diaper and wipe program! I would feel comfortable talking to them if I had any questions!!
“Before starting the program I was going through a very hard and stressful period of time in my life. I was dealing with betrayal, loneliness, self-sabotage, and anger. This program specifically addressed all four of those issues for me personally. Akeria led the program and really helped give me a new perspective about myself that was in direct contradiction to negative things I have learned and have been told before by other influential people in my past. This new perspective I know to be true, which is why it worked so well for me. It helped me to classify the negative thoughts as lies. This gave me power over the negative thoughts and resulting behaviors. This program is inspired by God’s word and reiterates His promises to us. I now have a new direction in life and more strength to accomplish His will for my life. I am very thankful to Akeira for taking on this program and helping me to get my life back on track. I can now see how the lies that I have believed about myself have stolen my power and life from me, and by learning these truths and hearing them, have helped free me from weaknesses that have been harmful to myself. “Your Worth It” is designed to empower you to do the difficult things needed in order to triumph over adversity.”
