Different natural modalities support both your emotional and physical well-being. Essential oils are amongst our favorites for preparing your body for an ideal birth.
"My Essential Birth helped my husband and I gain the knowledge we needed to feel confident for an unmedicated birth. We learned coping mechanisms to help during labor and what to expect during each stage. Birth was a beautiful experience and I was very happy my husband and I prepared for it together! Birth was hard work…but so worth it!"
No matter where or how you plan to birth your baby, we walk you through the steps on how to achieve your ideal birth. You will benefit from knowing how to prepare your body for birth, how your partner can support you, breastfeeding, postpartum, and much, much more!
You and your partner will feel empowered with knowledge, confident about your ability to birth your baby, and excited for this life-changing experience. Understanding what to expect and how to manage removes fear and replaces it with joyous anticipation!
Birth is the most powerful experience & it will further deepen the bond you share with each other. It will leave you feeling in awe of your body and give you a radiant outlook on parenting. No matter where you begin this journey, by the end of this course, you too will feel prepared and ecstatic for YOUR birth!
Everything you need to know to prepare for your ideal birth in a go-at-your-own-pace format.
"We cannot express enough how grateful we are to have found this course. Even though this was my first birth, my husband and I felt peaceful and reassured. When my water broke without contractions, we knew exactly what to do to get them going. Our birth went so smoothly! Cortney and Stephanie have such an incredible gift- thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!"
We were getting so many calls from couples that either weren’t able to make their schedule work, weren’t close enough to take our classes or were too far along in their pregnancies.
We needed to create a way to reach women everywhere! Our goal was to combine the best of everything in one convenient place, and start improving birth practices, one family at a time.
You are in the right place to prepare yourself and your partner for an incredible birth. We created My Essential Birth as a way to give women a comprehensive, evidence-based online birth course. This course will prepare you and your partner for a holistic, empowered birth.
We bring the best birthing education, doula tips and tricks, and partner support right to you. We know you’re busy, Mama, so our online birthing course is accessible whenever, wherever you need it! Learn how to have your ideal birth with a course that fits your schedule.
"I really enjoyed watching all of the birth videos. I watched them with my mother and they were beautiful and easy to follow. Since my husband was not able to be with me for the birth, my mother was my partner and we were both grateful to know what to expect and how she could help me during labor. I also loved knowing what oils to use during labor to help me relax and to also keep me going. Even though this birth was hard work, I knew I could do it! And I did! I could not be more happy that I took this course and had the experience that I did. I have been sharing it with everyone I know!"
We support all couples in their birthing decisions. Knowledge is power in any situation! For those planning on an epidural, you'll learn the best time to get one, the benefits/risks to those meds and how to keep birth progressing after receiving them. No matter how you birth, you will likely have the pleasure of working through contractions and this course will support you in learning how to relax and work with them!
You will have immediate 9-month access to the online course from the day you place your order. You will also get lifetime access to: our exclusive Facebook group, the workbook, downloads and happy birth memories!
We discuss Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) specifically in this course! You will feel empowered as we use evidence-based information to show why it's safe, successful and very healing- our “Fear Release” meditation will renew your positive expectations. You’ll learn how to keep birth flowing smoothly through each stage. Stephanie has had two successful VBACs - and so can you!
Remember, a birth partner can be anyone that loves and supports you! That may be a spouse, family member, friend or a doula. If you feel you don’t have a birth partner, this course will bless you with not only the training and tools to have the birth you want, but you will also receive love and support from our online “family”! We can’t wait to get to know you!
