"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
"I deeply appreciate the level of honesty about what this work is like and the mentorship in navigating the difficulties. Intentional Birth Pro included educational content, a huge amount of resources, excellent guest speakers, connection within the cohort, and mentorship. Meredith & Alicia encouraged me to evaluate what I want and who I want to be as a doula. I ended this program with a sense of freedom to step into that with confidence and clarity."
Katie, IBP graduate
"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

Intentional Birth Pro
Intentional Birth: an honest, complete childbirth education
"I watched every module of this course and I can say that Intentional Birth 100% encompasses its name. This class series helps woman/pregnant people to understand, embrace and claim their birth power like no other curriculum I’ve ever seen before."
