We couldn’t be happier.Nurse Jackie gave us a lot of knowledge
Nurse Jackie did everything
Nurse Jackie’s 5 hour Birthing Class and it was the greatest experience
I never imagined I could feel so supported
We also took Nurse Jackie's 5-hour Birthing Course and found her pedagogy to be right on. She has so much knowledge she's willing to share. I'm really looking forward to the experience of delivering with Nurse Jackie and Dr. Eng at the birthing center!
I had to write this review after having another AMAZING follow-up with Nurse Jackie
Nurse Jackie's attitude and care for her clients cannot be beat and I wish I could give her a higher rating!
Like you, I searched for an affordable birthing class that would cover everything I needed to know about pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum care from A to Z. The Birthing Center's 5-hour class was surprisingly really fun and exactly what I needed as a first-time mom. I felt such peace the moment I walked through their doors.
If you're hesitant about signing up because of the distance, just know that the subway is a 5-minute walk from the front door and the classes are purposely kept to a smaller size - you won't find hands-on teaching like this in any of the larger hospital classes, trust me!
From the moment the class starts, Nurse Jackie is teaching techniques, breathing positions, how to time contractions, and hospital vocabulary so you know how to advocate for yourself on the big day. Best of all, she'll continue to work with you through your pregnancy and she's also a lactation consultant. (Most hospitals will send one to your room, but you may need an additional follow-up). She's also fantastic with nervous husbands.
I cannot thank her enough for answering my phone call when I was unexpectedly induced for labor and guiding me through what to expect, especially since I didn't have a doula. She is truly special and I will recommend her to everyone I know!

My boyfriend and I took the 5 hr Childbirth Class and it was worth every penny!
Nurse Jackie is amazing and has a true gift in teaching and helping others. She has soo much knowledge and expertise in baby care and child birth that it was soo wonderful! She also has an amazing sense of humor and made the class funny and entertaining. I was soo nervous going into the class as a first time mom, not knowing anything about babies, and now i feel soo well prepared. I highly recommend this class for first time parents. My partner also enjoyed the class and continues to rave about it, and found it helpful. Thank you soo much Nurse Jackie! -Xxxx
Nurse Jackie is obviously passionate about the subject matter
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Nurse Jackie’s birthing class
Nurse Jackie Rocks!

My Husband could not stop talking about the birthing claqss
Nurse Jackie is the BEST Nurse to help deliver your baby
Eighteen years ago I became the proud aunt of my first nephew Manuel. AKA Anthony. This was an exciting milestone in my life. I was there to experience a new member of our family being born. It was a joyful but yet scary moment for me but especially for my younger sister Irma who was the one enduring the labor pains as I watched feeling hopeless, excited and scared. But all my feelings of fear were taken away when Ms. Jackie Chapman walked into the delivery room with confidence and introduced herself as the delivery nurse caring for my sister Irma.
Nurse Jackie’s nursing knowledge, strong character, comforting words, compassionate demeanor and her sense of humor made my sister’s labor process an experience we shall never forget. My sister had given up on pushing due to exhaustion, despite everything the doctor would tell her. Needless to say her decision to give up started affecting my nephew in her womb. Nurse Jackie never gave up on my sister and kept it very real with her. Nurse Jackie was firm and assertive when it was needed. She provided my sister with a reality check of what would happen if she didn’t do as told to give birth. She stood right by my sister’s bedside and provided her with the support she needed to successfully give birth to my healthy nephew. Nurse Jackie’s nursing duties made the birth of my nephew a success without having a C- section.
Nurse Jackie is an outstanding L&D nurse. She made my sister laugh, and also gave her the strength and courage to successfully deliver my nephew. She went above and beyond her duties in the delivery room and after delivery. Her professionalism, funny and caring demeanor will forever be embedded in our memories. Up to this day we tell Anthony how Nurse Jackie was an extraordinary nurse which helped bring him into this world.
I highly recommend Nurse Jackie to be your delivery nurse. If you want someone who will make you laugh, very straightforward, give you support and encouragement during this exciting milestone in your life without all the fancy medical terminology then you need to choose Nurse Jackie. She keeps it real! You will not regret having her at your side to start this beautiful journey of motherhood.
Attached is a picture of my nephew with Ms Chapman a few days old and I also provided a picture of my 18 year old nephew now.
Nurse Jackie thank you for all the memorable moments we had with you in the delivery room.
I had the best experience of CPR class
Nurse Jackie was so experienced she patiently taught us any dangerous situation and carefully explain step by step on how to properly do a cpr and the importance of AED. Her charisma makes the class fun and exciting !
After the class we are more confident in the birthing process
My husband and I took Nurse Jackie’s birthing class because we have no idea what we are doing.
After the class we are more confident in the birthing process, breastfeeding and being able to take care of our newborn once he arrives. Nurse Jackie is also very engaging and real. Thank God for Nurse Jackie!!
Nurse Jackie’s approach to teaching is very hands on and visua
We both can't say enough about how much we overall enjoyed this class! We learned so much in such a short period of time. Nurse Jackie's approach to teaching is very hands on and visual so you really retain and understand all of the information. I would definitely recommend this course to new parents or anyone who wants to learn about the process and care associated with having a newborn baby. Thank you again nurse Jackie!
Nurse Jackie makes the class very interactive
We cant thank Nurse Jackie enough for making us more informed, calm, and ready for our baby!
Nurse Jackie and Dr.Eng gave me the birth experience I could’ve never imagined!
The Birthing Center of NY – the BEST choice I made
Nurse Jackie is amazing
Once we met nurse Jackie we absolutely knew we had to take her class
Nurse Jackie is an angel
Thank you so much again!
The Birthing Class with Nurse Jackie was a GREAT Experience!
After taking her course, I feel more confident
Just Do It!
Nurse Jackie is very informative
I realize after taking her class that babies are sensible little human beings. This made it easier for me to interact with my child after birth.
During labor, all Jackie's pain management exercises came back to mind. I utilized the one that worked best for me; it brought me much relief.
I was able to give birth naturally because of the clear information provided by nurse Jackie about what happens during labor.
Nurse Jackie is Exceptional
|I would like to say Nurse Jackie is nothing less then exceptional .Her hands on training is just what me and my husband needed to get our mojo back with caring for a baby and childcare in general.I will take her wise words and with me wherever I go. as a new mother.|
Nurse Jackie don’t just Talk to you, she nurtures you into parenthood and makes u look forward to the new road ahead .
We are such fans and will be back and always recommend her to others
And whenever I am hit with a troublesome situation as a new mother.I will ask
WHAT would nurse Jackie Do ?
she would just tell me to Smell the roses and blow out the birthday Candles …Just breathe
We Learned a Lot in a short time!
The enthusiasm and energy of Nurse Jackie made her BLS class great!
Basic life support class was fun and informative!
We learned a lot and had fun!
What a wonderful and upbeat class!
What a wonderful and upbeat class!
My boyfriend and I took the childbirth classes and I left feeling so educated and confident. Nurse Jackie is over qualified and makes the class very fun...it was very interactive through all stages especially the ones first time mothers worry most about like contractions and breastfeeding. Thank you NY Birthing Center for taking care of us. I’d recommend this class for anyone who wants all the important information and to have fun at the same time!
Nurse Jackies Class Was Great!
Thank You Nurse Jackie! Amazing Birthing Class
The experience couldn’t have gone better. The class was 5 hours long but we enjoyed every minute of it! It was a true bonding experience. I 100% recommend anyone to try it out, especially first time parents.
Thank you Nurse Jackie!!
Nurse Jackie is experienced, entertaining and wonderful!
Thank you for showing us the beauties of natural child birth that Hollywood tends to scare us about !
It was such an incredible experience to be able to labor in a hot bath with jets (which helped ease the rushes), and have the 2:1 provider to patient ratio of Dr. Eng & nurse Jackie. The only time they left our room was to use the restroom or to perform some basic preparations.
Having their attention and guidance through the entire labor/birth process truly made our experience optimal. Nurse Jackie helped capture our moments with photos, and assist Dr Eng every step along the way from Pre-medicating me to assistance in the bathroom and ended with a warm hug as we left 4 hours after delivery!
We hope to be able to utilize the birthing center for baby #2 as my post-partum recovery for baby #1 was *so* quick with the natural vaginal birth, and even better to rest at home so promptly after.
Thank you for showing us the beauties of natural child birth that Hollywood tends to scare us about ! Wouldn't want to birth another child any other way after this experience.
Nurse Jackie made us calm and confident!
My husband and I attended a Childbirth class with nurse Jackie.
The class was very informative and dynamic. We found out a new information and got a new experiences.
Nurse Jackie is a professional nurse. She is ready to share all knowledge, info and answer all questions you have. She has a great humor. So, you will have fun while the class.
Now, I am calmer and more confident.
Thank you, nurse Jackie for the class and fun.
We love nurse jackie
Nurse Jackie - Compassionate and Caring!
My husband and I Love Love Love Nurse Jackie 🙂 She has a way of engaging her audience and maintaining their attention with laughter, compassion and true love for obstetrics. She's warm, inviting, and educational in her teachings. Would like to have her by our side at ALL times, no matter what! She's a woman to be respected and admired for her professional and life experiences.
The care at Birthing Center of New York is incredible!
My partner and I switched to Dr. Eng and Nurse Jackie's care late in the pregnancy, and from the moment we started seeing them we knew we were in the BEST of hands. They make an incredible team. Nurse Jackie is literally an angel who provides continuous, personal, and loving support before, during, and AFTER you deliver your baby. Dr. Eng is so knowledgeable, caring, and makes you feel so confident in delivering your baby. Her energy is calm, reassuring, and matter of fact. Through nurse jackie she also provides continuous support before, during, and after your delivery. There are also classes at the center offered by Nurse Jackie at that prepared us for a successful labor and delivery that I highly recommend.
A few more things that make Birthing Center of NY unique are that Dr Eng is an OBGYN who can also deliver your baby in the hospital if for any reason that is the safer or preferred option and that they get the father so involved in the delivery as well- my partner got to cut the cord, take the baby's footprints, and also do skin to skin.
Anyone exploring natural childbirth should do it with the Birthing Center of New York, I can't say enough amazing things or thank this team enough. Care like this is rare to come by, you won't find any where else like it to birth your baby
Nurse Jackie helped us to feel extremely comfortable and relaxed
I would highly recommend Nurse Jackie to be your delivery nurse
I would highly recommend Nurse Jackie to be your delivery nurse. You surely will be blessed having her with you as you enter this beautiful journey of motherhood.
From the Rosa and Rodriguez family, we want to thank Nurse Jackie for her bedside love and support. I hope you continue to spread your love and support to all mothers expecting.
I'm attaching a picture of Nurse Jackie with my son Manuel and daddy along with another picture of Manuel at age 18.
Thank you Nurse Jackie for all the supportive care, compassion, and firmness I needed during that time.

My partner and I took the birthing class and enjoyed every minute of it
Now i have my beautiful baby and I am very grateful to the specialists of the birthing center for their invaluable help!!!
When time of birthing was coming (started contractions)->I went to the birthing center, where nurse Jackie told me what to do how to reach faster time of labor and helped me to release the pain through physical moves, walking, breathing and hugs. It's really helped me a lot, without it, I didn't even know how to handle that strong pain and though only anesthesia (but I heard this is has a bad effect to the child) or hands of good specialists.. I choose 2nd option and did not regret it!
The moment of labor was pretty much hard, but at the finish line you will forget fast that pain after you get the baby in your arms. Dr Lisa helped me a lot during labor by telling me what to do every second and told me about my babies progress (that cheered me up and gave me strength).
Now i have my beautiful baby and I am very grateful to the specialists of the birthing center for their invaluable help!!!😌🙏🏼
Nurse Jackie is wonderful and very experienced.

The class was full of information about birthing and after delivering. She made it so fun that I couldn't forget. It was also practical.

There is no one like nurse Jackie. Funny, smart, warm. She creates such a great environment. We recently went through the intensive parent training. We laughed and learned so much. It’s been an unforgettable journey. We can’t wait to meet our future daughter at the birthing center in a few weeks!
Jackie is very warm and energetic

My husband and I took Nurse Jackie's 5 hour birthing class.
I highly recommend this class to first time parents. Nurse Jackie is friendly and experienced, and you will feel more prepared for child birth after taking this class. Through lectures, videos, scenarios, and demos, Nurse Jackie covers contractions, breathing techniques, labor, breast feeding, how to care for your baby, etc. in a fun and informative way. We learned A LOT from the class. The classroom environment is also very warm and welcoming. Thank you for a wonderful class!
NURSE JACKIE IS AMAZE-A-BALLS
Getting prepare for a child is already nerve racking enough, but Nurse Jackie’s methods and teaching style made us feel like we were at home with her. Her style is unforgettable, hilarious, and comes with the good ole Mama touch that I believe first time parents need.
My partner and I had an amazing time in class, I will be back for her CPR training and as well as lactation class once our son is born. I love Nurse Jackie so much, I wish I could switch birthing centers so she could birth my child.
We love you Nurse Jackie!!! Thank you for everything!!!
