Six weekly sessions, online or on the phone
Mondays 10:00am-11:00am PST


Your birth experience matters.

Ask any mom if she remembers her birth experience, and chances are she’ll start telling her story.

In detail.

How we feel about our birth story affects us long after the big day. We can feel regret that we didn’t participate more fully in decisions, sadness that we didn’t feel more supported, and even a sense of loss for a birth we didn’t have.

The Empowering Birth class will give you the tools to create a meaningful experience that you can look back on with pride, no matter what direction your birth goes in.

Because around here, we don’t believe one way of giving birth is better than another.

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 honor your truth. What matters to us is that you feel supported in doing what feels right for you and your family, you understand your choices and their consequences, and you can respond to what arises from an authentic place.

And that’s the most important skill to have once you’re a mom, so it’s great preparation for motherhood!

In the Empowering Birth Class, you will learn:

  • Who do I want on my birth team?
  • What’s the right birth place for me and my family?
  • What are my options for before, during and after labor? What are the pros and cons of each?
  • What are the essential tools that help throughout labor?
  • What are the most effective coping techniques for me and my partner to practice?
  • How can I prepare for bringing baby home so I can enjoy postpartum more?
  • How will this experience change my body, my emotions, my relationships?

What Mamas Say About Amanda’s Birth Class

We feel much more prepared and educated for what to expect for our first child’s delivery. Thank you Amanda!
Amanda is amazing! She is so knowledgeable and clearly spends quite a bit of time doing her own research to ensure that she’s teaching and sharing the most up-to-date, evidence based facts. I’m so thankful that we were able to take these classes with her!

I am a first-time mama and so it has all been new, and with that, I couldn’t be more thankful for Amanda.
