“I believe that pregnancy, as well as the actual birth process, are a gift that a lot of women, and their partners, do not realize they have been blessed with. This is truly the most important time in a child’s development and the most important time for bonding between parent and child. All pregnant women deserve to be given support, education, respect, and empowerment.”

Celeste is a mentor for the Pregnancy Mentoring Program and is a Music Therapy Assisted Childbirth specialist.
