I want an Empowering Birth!

Ask a Grandma about her birth experience, and chances are she’ll remember details.

Details like…

– Did I ignore that little voice inside, or feel empowered enough to listen to it?

– Did I understand enough of the pro’s and con’s to participate in choices?

Did I feel supported and nurtured throughout because I had prepared a solid birth team?


We believe you can have a beautiful birth, anywhere, any which way.

The question is: what’s right for you?

Whether you’re in a hospital or at home, whether you want a vaginal birth or an epidural in the parking lot, the opportunity is there for you to lay the foundations for an authentic, meaningful experience.

Empowering Birth is all about giving you all the information, practices, and support you’ll need to make choices you’ll love to remember – forever.

When I took my birth class at Hoag, the nurse who taught it asked me if I was a medical professional because I was very informed 🙂

Nope, I was just finishing up my cert to teach prenatal yoga and I took a wonderful online birth class with Ma Yoga Living, which basically taught me all I needed and more… I highly recommend the Empowering Birth class to any mom to be!
