If you’re a pregnant mama or birth partner looking to experience your best birth while discovering your own inner strength, then you probably already know that you need to prepare for your best birth by taking a class.

So we’ll spare you the spiel.

No need to be a broken record and convince you of something that’s already been drilled deep into your soul.

After all, you probably already KNOW that preparing your body and mind for birth is the key difference between women who come away from birth feeling empowered, and those who are left feeling disappointed or frustrated.

You’ve probably also heard that there are techniques, exercises and knowledge you need to have in order to confidently navigate unexpected situations during birth.

HERE'S WHAT YOU

MIGHT NOT KNOW

Even if you're lucky enough to have an awesomely supportive provider, birthplace, and doula on lockdown (lucky you) ...achieving your best birth by taking a birth class can:

  • Create a Quicker, Easier, More Comfortable Birth

    This is a no brainer, right? You’ll have a birth story that inspires, rather than terrifies. Birth will become something you look forward to, rather than dread...Because you’ve learned how to be amazing at it!

  • Train a Perfectly Prepared Birth Partner

    Having a partner that knows the exact moves to help you through the toughest parts of birth will be a huge lifesaver. They’ll be able to interact with your birth team so that you are free to focus on doing what your body does best- birth your baby!

  • Teach You What to Expect & How to Resolve the Unexpected

    This knowledge puts you in complete control of your birth. Instead of passively hoping your birth goes smoothly, you’ll know exactly how to navigate all the “what-ifs”, giving you freedom to confidently achieve your best birth.

  • Help You Assemble the Ultimate Birth Team

    Learning to advocate for yourself and your baby requires a special combination of knowledge, confidence and the ability to foster mutually respectful relationships with your providers. Taking a birth class helps you develop this skill so that you don’t leave your birth feeling like you didn’t have a voice in how it all unfolded.

  • Boost Love & Belief In Yourself

    An empowering birth will leave you in awe of your own strength and beauty, and those feelings carry over into a radiant motherhood, allowing you to avoid the deadly comparison traps. Your children will thank you for leaving them a legacy of true self-worth.

Achieving your best birth is totally doable. Some might even say, “Birth is natural!”- implying that no preparation is required. “After all, your doctor or midwife will save the day if anything goes wrong!” And that notion works... if your only goal for birth was to avoid life-saving measures.

BUT if you want more out of your experience than simply surviving, then you need to understand that birth IS natural...but natural like walking, not natural like breathing. Walking is a learned skill. Breathing...well, that just happens without much thought.

The same goes for birth. It’s a learned skill, and there are MANY moving pieces and potential failure points along the way.

What should I do if my labor stalls at 3cm? Which techniques work best to avoid pain? What are my real options if I pass my due date?

These are just some of the MANY things you’ll have to learn and prepare for ahead of birth.

Time to respect birth for what it is- A LEARNED SKILL- and approach it accordingly.

We’ve all heard dramatic, terrifying birth stories. From TV shows, from friends, perhaps even from our mother & sister. Some people thrive off of the drama, others share their disappointing birth experience as a cautionary tale, and the implied message is (unfortunately) loud & clear: “Birth is hard. Don’t allow yourself to care too much about it so that you aren’t disappointed.”

But bad programming doesn’t just come from the media and friends/family...sometimes it comes from healthcare providers who feed women the lie that their body sucks at birthing. “I’m sorry, your body just isn’t making strong enough contractions.” OR “Pushing is taking too long- you are too tired to push your baby out by yourself.”

What do both of these things have in common? ^^

They are LIES that ruin your mindset for birth. Your body is perfectly made to create and birth babies. It’s how our species survives. You’re not broken! Believe in yourself, believe in your body, believe in the process. The body achieves what the mind believes, and that absolutely holds true for birth.

No, Stacy down the street isn’t just born with “good birthing hips”.

We say this with complete respect and from a place of brutal honesty from personal and professional experience: the perfect birth you’re envisioning doesn’t happen by luck.

Luck has very little to do with it.

When you are reading or listening to incredible birth stories and watching calm, empowering births on YouTube, 99.9% of these women prepared...and a lot! And while those births probably weren’t exactly what the mother had envisioned (whether in a good or not so good way), because of their preparation they were equipped to handle whatever came their way.

Whether or not your birth is amazing is a choice, your choice, and your choices matter. How you birth is not luck, it’s where knowledge & preparation meet determination.

Most mamas assume that any birth class will prepare you properly for an awesome birth.

The truth is, not all birth classes are created equal. What you will learn in a 2-hour hospital birth class will be very different than what you will learn in an 8-week class.

You might be wondering what kind of birth is best for you...will it be unmedicated? A homebirth? Should you choose a midwife or OB? What if your main concern is simply to avoid interventions and a cesarean birth?

Unfortunately, most, if not all, birth classes are set up for one kind of birth, and it’s typically either for “medicated” (a hospital class) or “non-medicated” (a non-hospital class). Truth be told, most of us fall somewhere in the middle and preparing women for only one kind of birth is not smart.

In fact, most “non-medicated” birth classes prepare you in just one area. Some teach you how to prepare your body, but do very little to prepare you with knowledge for handling the unexpected. Others tell you everything you need to know about pregnancy and birth...but fail to teach you exactly how to prepare your body.

Sufficient preparation means taking a birth class that will prepare you in every way.

We’ve taken everything we've learned from years of teaching birth classes and supporting countless women as doulas, and channeled it into a comprehensive, step-by-step birth class that not only teaches you how to prepare your mind, body (and partner!),  but how to actually ACHIEVE your best birth.

My Essential Birth isn’t so much a training program as it as an implementation program.   

Yes, you’ll learn what to expect and how to navigate birth, but more importantly, you’ll have a meticulous step-by-step plan that leaves nothing out and takes nothing for granted as you implement it.

The end result: An incredibly smooth, empowering birth experience that you’ll cherish for the rest of your life.

"I just want to say thank you so much for your birth course you put out! We just had our 4th baby last night and the wealth of knowledge that you gave my husband and I helped us to work through an extremely fast labor with courage even though we were unintentionally alone at home. It also made our transfer from our home birth to hospital so much less stressful. Thank you!"

Frequently Asked Questions

What our most successful students asked before signing up for the My Essential Birth class

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 class will support you in learning how to relax and work with them!

The outcome of your last birth was not your fault- you simply didn’t have the right tools and support like you have before you now!  We’ll show you where births often get “derailed”, why they do, and how to prevent or navigate through each “what if”. Not only will you and your birth partner be prepared with the physical skill set necessary for your best birth, but you’ll also be confidently prepared with an empowering mindset as well.

If you are seeking a Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC), please know that we address this specifically in the My Essential Birth class! 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!

Mama, I hope deep-down there’s a voice inside you, reassuring you that you are MORE than strong enough for birth. But just in case that voice is a little quiet, let’s lay down some facts: Your body was perfectly designed to birth your baby. You come from a long line of birthing rockstars...sure, that may have skipped a generation or two, but all the women before you did it, and so can you! And just as a warning: joining us inside My Essential Birth will brainwash you into loving pregnancy and knowing you can achieve your best birth.

Because My Essential Birth is a go-at-your-own-pace, you and your partner can watch and re-watch lessons until you have confidently mastered the techniques. And because we don’t pigeon-hole you into just one kind of birth, you are free to explore ALL your options and make choices based off your own preferences.

Unfortunately, nearly all in-person birth classes on the market today focus on just one aspect of birth preparation...as doulas, we discovered this meant that our clients had major knowledge or skill gaps that contributed to less than their best birth experience. We combine comprehensive knowledge with our most tried-and-true practices and share them with you in a simple, convenient online format.

If you only have weeks (or even days) left in your pregnancy, all the more reason to jump in NOW and earn how to achieve your best birth! The My Essential Birth class provides approximately 7 hours of video content, along with action-based assignments to get you ready to go! You can even select just the videos that apply to your situation- whether that’s how to handle a potential induction or how to get baby turned into the best position for birth!

If you’re still fresh into your pregnancy, congratulations! And way to go for seeking out the very best birth class. My Essential Birth is perfect for where you are, because you’ll be able to implement our foundational nutrition and exercise classes NOW- giving you a head start on achieving your best birth. You’ll also love our section on managing pregnancy ailments naturally- we even broke it down by trimester for easy reference. You and your partner will have lots of time to master relaxation techniques, learn about birth and prepare together for your amazing birth ahead.

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!

Because you get instant access when you sign up for the My Essential birth class, you’ll have the opportunity to implement the exercises, nutrition, meditation tracks and relaxation techniques into practice BEFORE making a final commitment.

If you don’t feel totally confident and motivated in your ability to birth like a pro, simply reach out, show us you’ve put in the work, and we’ll refund your investment.

"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!
