Kind Words & Testimonials: Happy Doctors & Happy Clients

"With our first child due in late April, we took Nested's Childbirth Education course online because of the ongoing coronavirus closure. Nidhi and the Nested Team did a wonderful job working with us expecting parents and bringing the curriculum to us online with multiple opportunities for live Q&A sessions. They've tirelessly communicated with labor & delivery personnel at area hospitals to bring us the latest developments and guide parents on what to expect for labor in these unusual circumstances. Nidhi has also been helpful in navigating the mental and emotional wellbeing aspects of pregnancy under quarantine, and she provides great resources in this area. We highly recommend Nested's Childbirth and other courses -- it is clear they care deeply about each of their parents-to-be."

Expectant Parents

"I just wanted to thank you both for a great session today and for all of your hard work in getting these virtual sessions going amidst difficult circumstances. On a related note, I've had some other friends who are expecting whose prenatal classes were cancelled entirely. I told them about Nested and how we were able to have the class virtually."

Jules

"Thank you Nested so much for putting us at ease a bit in this really uncertain time. We have passed your information along to our other expecting friends!"

"Nidhi and her Nested team have been a great addition to the Breastfeeding Center team! Their energy is refreshing and appreciated, and we're happy to be a part of their philanthropic goal. The feedback we've gotten about their classes has been excellent. We look forward to our continued collaboration!"

"Hi Nidhi & Amy, I just want to offer another thank you from my wife and I for the extra measures you have deployed at Nested Baby during these weird times. The video and live Q&A were both very helpful! We will remain in touch with follow up questions as we approach our May 3rd due date. "

Andy

“My husband and I signed up for both the Newborn and Infant Care CPR and Childbirth Education classes with Nested. Sadly and understandably the in-person classes were canceled due to pandemic and social distancing regulations. Nidhi and her staff were very transparent and communicated with us about what next steps would look like, as well as options we had for the classes. We opted to participate in the virtual classes Nested created, which also included a Q&A for participants. The content was very informative and the Q&A allowed couples to relate and interact. We were very pleased with the alternative Nested provided! Nidhi and her staff have been very sensitive and understanding to all participants, answering all our questions and concerns! We are grateful to have Nested guide us through these difficult times.”

I am pleased to recommend and support Nested's nestedbaby.com as THE childbirth preparation class series in my website, askdrheatherjohson.com, about my book "What They Don’t Tell You About Having A Baby: An Obstetrician’s Unofficial Guide to Preconception, Pregnancy and Postpartum Care." Nidhi and her team of highly educated, compassionate and talented instructors are absolutely the best. I am delighted to be associated with the team.

Jessica and Kelly were phenomenal! I left more assured, confident, and prepared!

"I came away from the class feeling more confident and empowered about the birthing process and postpartum care. We definitely learned things and there is something to be said about talking about this stuff in person."

Mother

Nested has been such a great value for my patients. The classes and information presented are up to date, concise and exactly what my patients are looking for. Nidhi and her team have years of experience and expertise and they share a passion for what they do. I am thrilled to have Nested on our team!

Nidhi is a highly valued health care provider at RHJN. Her passion for patient education prompted her to create and develop curricula for Nested, a program of education for our expecting parents. She is an entertaining and knowledgeable creator and speaker. She and her Nested team are well prepared to provide excellent education and support to our expecting parents. Her energetic and caring personality is apparent when she sees her patients for consults and office visits.

Retired (FNP-BC, Reiter, Hill, Johnson & Nevin)

As new parents, we had no idea of what to do or what to expect. Going to the Nested class was so helpful to walk through the labor process and know what to expect. We also had no family in the area and going to this class reassured us that we could do this on our own while teaching us how to do so. The teachers are not only knowledgeable, but kind and invested in you and your family. I can't recommend this class enough! Here is our family photo and a photo from Amelia at 10 months wearing her nested bib!!

 

Emily, Javier and Amelia

“Nested is not only a great resource for my patients, but was also a tremendous asset to my husband and me prior to the birth of our daughter. The classes and instructors truly are top notch and I could not recommend them more! Knowing that my patients are getting accurate information during such an important and often stressful time in their lives provides for a much more enjoyable labor, delivery and postpartum experience. Thank you Nidhi and the Nested team for providing such excellent, quality prenatal education!"

"Thank you for the wonderful class. The teachers were great!! Very easy to understand and funny at the same time!! I wanted to thank you guys for the work you do with Ecuador. I, myself, was born here but my entire family is from Ecuador and know the incredible need there is there. On behalf of my family and all those you are helping in Ecuador, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!! I am glad that part of the fees was able to contribute to others who may not get the medical care and assistance I am fortunate to have since I am here. You are truly making a difference and I am sure you don't hear thank you enough, so Thank you!!"

Jessica

Mother

"High praise for our Nested childbirth class! One of my patients raved about this comprehensive class she participated in this past weekend. She felt that the class was thorough and addressed all of her questions adequately. She now feels confident when she goes into labor, that she knows what to expect. She gave special mention about the class instructor, Nidhi, and highly recommends the class to her friends!"

Dr. Lauren Stein-Muangman

Physician, Reiter, Hill, Johnson & Nevin

I liked hearing about CPR, hearing about different methods of baby care compared to what Sibley childbirth classes had to offer in their course. The best practices/updated standards were very helpful. The class was a positive experience. I liked the smallness of the class for more intimate learning and open forum structure.

Afzaa

Mother

I have been getting great feedback from our patients who have done a Nested class. They really felt the classes were well taught and informative. One patient said the class has helped to relieve some of her anxiety and fears about the labor process. Others have liked the charitable aspect to the program. Keep up the good work!

"I highly recommended Nested classes for all patients and their partners. They obtain the tools they need to feel confident about their upcoming delivery, newborn care, breast feeding, and preconception! Patients are highly satisfied with the information and attention to detail."
