It's a mountain with known paths, and many safe routes to the top!

As a labor and delivery nurse I have wished for years that my families would come into the hospital with a real knowledge of what to expect. Intentional Birth goes above and beyond anything I could have wanted for every patient in my care. Wanting and wishing for an unmedicated delivery in the hospital isn't enough, you need to be ready to stand up for what you want and deserve. Having a class that will teach you both sides of every intervention, as well as running practice scenarios is priceless. You'll leave this program knowing exactly what you want and why.

WE'RE HERE WITH TRUTHFUL, LOVING SUPPORT
You've now got two committed doulas and advocates in your back pocket, teaching you their best tricks of the trade.
Yes, that means our best comfort measures, exercises, packing lists, affirmations, and tips for recovery. But it also means tools for decision-making, for self-advocacy, and for knowing your true needs and values as you prepare for birth.
We've accompanied hundreds of families through the pregnancy and birth process. And we promise you, we tell it how it is. After a decade of teaching our clients individually, we created the course we've been waiting for.Get to know us better
Ready for the new childbirth education?
- No more weekend childbirth classes that teach you your birthing options without teaching you tools for making an informed choice.
- No more talking to women as if their bodies might fail them at any moment.
- No more acting like women's deeply held desires and values are mere "preferences" that can be easily discarded if necessary.
- No more preparing women for an unmedicated vaginal birth, and leaving them high and dry if they choose an epidural, induction, or cesarean.
- No more pretending that a natural birth comes naturally to every woman without some intentional preparation of body, mind, environment, and team.
It's time for the truth. And it's better than you ever imagined!
