SMB Radical Childbirth Classes

You do not need to be taught how to birth.

You’re growing your baby and you’re doing a kick-ass job.
You’re educating yourself, learning like a sponge, preparing your body, mind, home, and partnerships.
You’re sifting through information, options, and opinions.
You're finding your values and your footing as a mother.
You’re looking for intelligent, well-researched, women-centered guidance.

True childbirth education is learning - through unlearning. You'll find it here.

NEXT GROUP SESSION STARTS JULY 6, 2021

Live on Zoom: Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:30 PM EST or anytime via the weekly recordings

 

Maybe you’re struggling to find a childbirth course that focuses on undisturbed, physiological birth.

Your research and heart have led you to consider natural birth and you know there is so much to learn (and unlearn). You believe you can birth your baby, but you can’t quite wrap your brain around *exactly* how birth can happen safely, without medical intervention.

It could be that your partner or family are nervous about the birth process, and you long for them to truly support you and your choices. You want an environment where you can learn and grow together.

I work with smart women, helping them clarify their values and make powerful choices about pregnancy and birth.

I work with support people and partners, helping them learn how to best uplift the mother in all ways.

I'm a pioneering childbirth educator, authentic homebirth midwife, certified prenatal and postpartum yoga teacher, and intuitive bodyworker.

Let's learn together.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When during my pregnancy should I start a childbirth class?

I suggest beginning childbirth education in your first trimester, or early second trimester, to allow ample time for easeful decision making. However, beginning anytime before your baby is born is still super helpful!

I cannot attend the course live at the time. Is this a problem?

Not at all! Many families choose to review the weekly recordings and work through the homework and readings at their own pace. I am always available for 1-on-1 support. If you would prefer a private course that works with your individual schedule, book our RADICAL CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION MINI-SERIES. 

I have been diagnosed ‘high-risk’ in my pregnancy. Is this course relevant for me?

Absolutely! Mom's are encouraged to investigate their own definitions of risk and safety in relation to their birth.

How is the SMB Radical Childbirth Education Course different from those at my local hospital?

This course offers over 16 hours of individualized, small-group instruction. The class sizes are intentionally small in order to tailor the curriculum to your unique needs. Our class also focuses on undisturbed, physiological birth, while most hospital-based classes focus on common medical childbirth practices.

I’m not currently planning a home birth. How can this course benefit me?

All of our curriculum is relevant to EVERY pregnant woman! Regardless of what type of birth you are planning, having clear information about your body, your pregnancy, and your baby is essential for powerful decision making. Our class is judgment-free, fact-based, and women-centered.

Am I welcome to take this course solo or do I need a support person?

100,000%. We welcome you and you will not miss out on any portion of our course.

I am a doula/midwife/childbirth educator or woman who is not currently pregnant. May I join your course?

It is always the right time to learn more about birth! Non-pregnant people are absolutely welcome, though naturally, we center the experience of our pregnant moms.
