I created my
Comprehensive Birth & Baby Preparation Course
just for you!
Hey there, I'm Brittany...
After eight years working with families and three kids of my own, I have honed in on some of the most pressing questions new parents have during their childbearing years.
I spend over forty academic hours preparing students to have amazing birth experiences in all birthing settings.
This COMPREHENSIVE BIRTH & BABY PREPARATION COURSE is a combination of:
"Man, I wish I would have know that" PLUS
"I wish would have done that differently" PLUS
"I sure could have used an expert in my back pocket back then"
Begin class earlier and spend more time with your classmates than the average birth class.
I was so lonely in the beginning of my pregnancies...I had questions, but I didn't feel welcome in prenatal groups until much later into my pregnancy. When I was pregnant with my first...I HAD NO IDEA HOW MUCH WORK THERE WAS TO DO....but now I know.
After 4 pregnancies/3 births, breastfeeding for a cumulative 7.5 years (and counting), 8 years working with families as a birth doula > postpartum doula > childbirth educator and a 4 year degree in Family Life Education....You could say I have accumulated a bit of knowledge on what it takes to prepare for not just BIRTH but pregnancy, postpartum, newborn care, and early parenting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I believe the sooner you start building your community during pregnancy, the sooner you can start taking steps to keep your pregnancy healthy in preparation for labor and postpartum recovery.
Are you the perfect fit?
COMPREHENSIVE BIRTH & BABY PREPARATION COURSE
The answer is yes IF...
You're around 20 weeks gestation
You just can't get enough of learning about all the things on this motherhood journey
You have a parenting partner who is ready to learn and be involved as well (This person doesn't have to be an intimate partner, but can be a mother, sibling or friend who is committed to supporting you through pregnancy, birth, postpartum and parenting)
This may not be your first pregnancy, but you're dedicated to making this pregnancy, birth and postpartum different (better!) than previous experience
If you're ready willing and ready to take charge and to do the hard work physically, emotionally and spiritually to prepare for your amazing birth ...
I'VE GOT A SPOT IN MY NEXT CHILDBIRTH CLASS
WITH YOUR NAME ON IT!
When this timer runs out, doors close and won't open again for another 16 weeks!
Space is extremely limited!
Each class is carefully structured to include plenty of time for conversation, questions, eating together and building community. Therefore, I fiercely protect the intimate nature of our time together by limiting enrollment to a maximum of 5 couples per semester.
Because when I have the incredible opportunity and honor to get to know you, I can use our growing blossoming relationship to serve you better, more intimately, more holistically, more authentically when you need it the most.
"I don't need to pay for a birth class, the one at the hospital is FREE"
I hear you...I WAS you during my first pregnancy.
But that free hospital class I took:
Was BORING. Sit down, shut up and listen to a nurse read information from her little booklet + watch out-dated VHS tapes⠀
Told me in no uncertain terms who was in charge of my birth and my baby (hint: it wasn't me).⠀
Wasn't tailored to my specific birthing priorities...it was once size fits all (and birth is FAR from one size fits all)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT DID NOT:⠀
Prepare me for when birth plans change
Offer any information on baby care, early parenting or postpartum recovery/expectations
Teach me to use my voice to advocate for myself, use informed consent or even let me know that alternatives exist.
There was no sense of community among the participants, no shared meals, no comfy couches, no talk of prenatal preparation, nothing to be excited about. ⠀
You're probably here because...
You're planning a birth experience that is scary, distressing or disempowering.
The truth is, nobody plans to have a traumatic birth, but with no planning at all- trauma sometimes happens.
Most people spend months or even years planning their wedding day and next to no real time planning their birth but, my friend, you will ALWAYS remember your Birthing Day...make it worth remembering fondly by investing in the experience and your own education.
This course is designed to take the fear, anxiety and uncertainty out of birth because fear of the unknown creates tension in the body that works against natural processes required to give birth peacefully.
I can't promise you a "perfect birth" (if there is such a thing), but I can promise that you will gain the knowledge, wisdom and confidence to make the best decisions for yourself, your partner and your baby.
Think of me as your very own Birth & Baby Planner (kinda like a Wedding Planner but for babies!)

Alicia M. says...
We took Brittany's class for baby number 3. Brittany is so knowledgeable in so many areas. My husband especially loved some of the tips and tricks she shared with him to support me in labor, she was able to help us with car seat questions, evidence based infant sleep information, and the meals during each class and guest speakers were also a huge bonus! Thank you Brittany!
John C. says...
"I learned things in this class that I didn’t know I didn’t know! Could not imagine the birth process without having taking Brittany’s class. She presented oodles of knowledge in all things birth, clear and concise and fun. I really appreciated the vastness of the class, covering pregnancy, labor, post birth and everything in between. Not only was Brittany great, but the camaraderie with classmates made the whole experience even better. 10/10 would recommend!"
Candice G. says...
"This class was amazing and very detailed! It thought us so much and was flexible to adjust the class to our needs. This was a open, judgement free zone where there is no right or wrong way. I would recommend Brittany’s class to any expecting parents!"
