"Before joining Intentional Birth, I was hoping for a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) but had a lot of fear and honestly doubt in regards to my body's ability. Every single question or fear I had was addressed in the course. As I progressed through it, my excitement and preparation grew! By the end, I knew my body would do what it needed to do. The knowledge I gained allowed me to advocate for myself; I felt the freedom and confidence to make the decisions that were best for me."
KATIE, VBAC MAMA OF TWO
"We are so grateful for Meredith and Alicia! The information in this course has deeply impacted our framework for birth. Our confidence in the process has grown immensely, and we feel much more comfortable navigating the many decisions involved in creating a birth plan."
Corina and Kyle, San Francisco
"Our birth bag has many tools: the rebozo, the birth ball, the candles and scents, all the information at our fingertips about induction and comfort measures, but the Intentional Birth platform has been the most important tool of all."
Mari, doula of 12 years
