-Sara, MARCH 2012
 Gingi is not just a great dance teacher, but also an amazing doula.  She is a great listener, supporter, and is full of wisdom.  She is thorough, caring, and non-judgemental.  She supported me in all aspects of my pregnancy, and was able to give excellent referrals to other practitioners when needed.
