"You can have a natural birthing expert personally teach you what you need to know to have a healthy baby and a great birth – and it’s completely affordable."

If you want to have a safe, comfortable and healthy natural birth (but you have more questions than answers!) don’t worry – help is on the way.

I've put together an easy-to-follow online class that walks you through everything you need to know about natural birthing in a format that is simple to understand, simple to use … and has solid science to back it all up.

After going through 6 natural births myself, I know exactly what kinds of questions, concerns and worries you have – and exactly what you need to know to put your mind at ease and prepare you for the “dream birth” you want to have.

If the idea of having an experienced natural birthing coach take you by the hand and teach you how to enjoy a healthy pregnancy, a good birth and a happy baby sounds like just what you’ve been looking for, keep reading.

This 8-week, easy to follow online course (complete with personal support from me) will teach you everything you need to know.

I want you to enjoy your pregnancy and feel completely confident about your natural birth experience.

After going through the natural birthing process with each of my children, I’ve learned what what works, what doesn’t and what’s most important to know going in.

That's why I want you to take your time reading through the rest of this page, because this is the critical information you need to know in order to have a safe natural birth.

I've taught this class to so many students who have reported back and told me how much it helped them feel empowered about their birth, work with their partners and midwives to make things go smoothly, and stay calm and control from beginning to end.

And I want the same for you.  Right now we're going to go through the details that make the MamaBaby Birthing Class the best online resource you'll ever find to finally answer all your questions and make sense of the conflicting information you may have read about elsewhere.

You don't have to be "lucky" to have a good birth.  You just have to know how to prepare for each step along the way (and what conventional advice you should steer clear from).

The happy and successful outcome of your natural birth is completely within your control.  I'm looking forward to showing you how to empower yourself to have a safe birth where you feel calm, confident, and totally prepared. 

"Just wanted to let you know, Grace was born weighing 8lbs.. after a 24 hr labour (12.5 hrs of that was early labour) and drug free hospital birth :)

michelle-and-graceI want to thank you for all the work you put into your birthing class, to empower woman to take control of their bodies and their experience. This was by far the "best" birth experience I have had, out of my 3 births. It wasn't perfect, but I stayed calm and in control the whole time. I got to give birth on my hands and knees, in the peaceful darkness of my room (the OB didn't make it to my birth, or else I wouldn't have had this), AND they delayed little Graces cord clamping. Thank you for all your help providing research for my OB! I couldn't be happier!"

~Michelle and Dustin

Let me walk you through how this class will teach you everything you need for a safe, comfortable, natural birth

I've put this natural childbirth class together in a way that will make it as easy as possible for you to learn what you need to know as well as give you full, unlimited access to personal support to answer any of the questions you have along the way.

(The personal support is a real perk to the class, because you’ll be able to get the most up-to-date information on natural birthing you’ll find anywhere.)

Hi Kristen, just listened to birthing behaviours. Excellent! Also wanted to say a wonderful and heartening tele class last night. Thank-you. Wish you could be here, there and everywhere to help mummy's around the world. We need a Kristen (or ten!)

~Samantha

Here's how the class works:

  • Each of the 8 class sessions will be sent to you automatically, one per week, so you have plenty of time to go through the material without getting overwhelmed – the class is self paced, and you have lifetime access to the material.
  • In each session, you’ll have easy-to-listen-to audio lessons, print tutorials and downloadable references that let you learn what you need to know and give you the flexibility to go through the materials whenever and wherever is easiest for you.
  • You’ll get special “make your life easier” material like a full 2-week daily menu plan for healthy eating (this is a take-you-by-the-hand-and-show-you-how-it’s-made plan you’re going to love) and a childbirth fear clearing template.
  • You’ll also get personal support for all your questions via a weekly Q&A call (and you can even email me if that’s easier for you!).  Email access is unlimited, too – meaning you can get your questions answered even long after the class is done.

When you've finished listening to each lesson you’ll know exactly what you need to do to have a healthy pregnancy and feel confident and prepared for your baby's natural birth, too!

Now that you know how the class works, let me walk you through what you’ll be learning in each weekly session.

Week 1: Your Pregnancy

You'll hit the ground running this first week as you get the answers to all the important starting points – how you should eat so your baby stays healthy, how to keep your pelvic muscles strong so you give birth easily, and how to stay comfortable and safe throughout your entire pregnancy.

Some of the highlights of this week include:

  • A complete two-week menu plan covering breakfast, lunch, supper and snacks
  • Practical strategies for getting the rest you need to feel great (all 9 months!)
  • Two exercises that keep your energy up – and enhance your bond with your baby
  • Custom-made pregnancy diet trackers so you know you’re eating right for a healthy birth
  • The best position for your baby (so you have a smooth and easy birthing time)

...and so much more.  You’ll also get the “little details that make a difference”, like the $20 seat that will make you a lot more comfortable and recommended supplements and safety information.

Then you’ll be ready for...

Week 2: Childbirth Introduction

In week 2 you'll discover what important preparations you and your partner need to make for a healthy, natural birth.

galen-birth-kiss

You'll also learn foundational skills for natural birthing, cover "good choices" vs. "bad choices" on the big day, and find out how to handle worries and doubts so that you'll enter the process feeling confident.

Some of the highlights of this week include:

  • What you should focus on for a smooth, safe birth for your baby
  • What to expect from each stage of birth
  • How to pick a care provider who will really support your birth choices
  • How to help your partner become the best “coach” you could ever ask for
  • How to develop the key “birthing behaviors” that set you up for the best experience possible

...and so much more.  You’ll learn how to know when your birthing time is starting, what to do if your baby comes faster than your doctor or midwife, and other important things to consider so that you feel informed, comfortable and ready for what natural birthing requires of you.

Then you’ll move into...

Week 3: Childbirth Basics

In week 3 you'll learn about what breathing techniques you should be using (and why the ones taught in the past don't cut it), how to communicate with your partner during birth, and how to get touch that makes you feel better during the process.

You'll also learn about how your baby moves through your pelvis and how to relax in all the right ways to make birthing much, much easier.

Some of the highlights of this week include:

  • How to instantly get back into control if you “lose it” during labor
  • A recorded relaxation script you can use every day to relax the right places
  • How to manage your contractions so you’re getting the support you need during birth
  • The secret to the “cleansing breath” (and why so many midwives know you should use it)
  • How to reverse a stalled labor and bring your baby right down

...and so much more.  You'll also discover how to keep on top of your breathing no matter what, which conventional birthing advice you can safely ignore, and how the right birthing position makes such a difference in having a successful birth.

Next you'll cover...

Week 4: Giving Birth

In week 4 you'll get all the nitty-gritty details on things like positions for labor and giving birth (complete with full color photos to make “getting it” easy and intuitive).  You'll learn about trusted, proven techniques for keeping labor moving and getting stalled labors back in gear.

You'll also learn important details you need to know to make a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) happen safely and comfortably.

Some of the highlights of this week include:

  • How to re-position baby during labor (so you give birth faster and more comfortably)
  • How to avoid nausea and prevent a “cascade of interventions” with one tiny, 10-cent tool
  • What to do when you need a break during labor (that doesn’t involve meds at all)
  • The most important decision you’ll make as you plan your VBAC
  • A tool you can use in even the tiniest hospital room that opens your pelvis (so baby comes down and out!)

...and so much more.  You'll discover what you MUST pay attention to in your last six weeks of pregnancy, how to reduce the risk of tearing, and additional strategies for keeping that baby moving!

After that you’ll explore...

Week 5: Avoiding Complications
and Interventions

In week 5, you'll be armed with all the information you need to help ensure a safe, natural birth with the lowest risk of complications possible.  You'll discover what "aware" birthing really means, when to say yes and when to say no during the process, and how to have a powerful birth in any situation.

You'll also learn about how to avoid possible complications and interventions so that your birth happens as smoothly as it can go.

Some of the highlights of this week include:

  • How to feel confident “calling the shots” during your pregnancy
  • How to avoid a “Cascade of Interventions” and protect your birthing experience
  • The vital information you need to know about “informed consent”
  • Proven ways to prevent preterm birth
  • The right questions to ask when your doctor or midwife suggests interventions (including Cesearean)

...and so much more.  You’ll learn about what active birthing means (and why you want to do it), get access to easy-to-reference handouts for common birth situations, and alternatives to the ineffective (or dangerous) suggestions that others may make as you move into birth.

Then you’ll be ready for...

Week 6: Bringing It All Together

In week 6 you'll learn what you need to know to decide if you want to have a birth plan, discover how to practice for a smooth and easy birth (without going into labor), and learn how to remove fear and anxiety about childbirth.

At the end of this session you'll feel your confidence go up and gain the peace of mind that you can handle labor and birth with grace.

Some of the highlights of this week include:

  • Why birth plans are usually a bad idea (and what to do differently to make a birth plan work for you)
  • How to talk to your doctor or midwife so you stay in charge – and keep you and your baby safe
  • What to do when you get worried about any birth situation (birthing alone, not making it to the hospital, etc.)
  • How to let go of fear, trust your skills and abilities and protect yourself from negative influences
  • A proven way to make your “dream birth” happen

...and so much more.  You’ll learn about bonding with your baby prenatally, create positive images of birth that will make the process easier, and have a more rewarding and fulfilling natural birth experience.

Kristen.
Super quick message.
My baby boy was born yesterday morning.
Amazing !!! Had him in our birth pool, I did it !!!!

Thank you for your guidance......it was all there. I drew on so much from you. It was truly a conscious birth. I thought my way through all of it. I was PRESENT I stayed with my baby. We worked together. I didn't forget or ignore that he was there or what I was doing this for. My scar never hurt me at all , so my body let me know all was fine and I was able to let that go completely and just concentrate on my work.

Much love and blessings to you.

Then you'll move into...

Week 7: Newborn Moments

galen_birth

In week 7, you'll explore what the first few days with your baby will be like for you, and you'll cover topics such as interventions for your baby, breastfeeding, what to expect from your postpartum body and bonding with your baby after birth

This is what it's all been leading up to – you've done the work to support a safe, comfortable, natural birth – and now you'll be holding your baby for the first time.

Some of the highlights of this week include:

  • Which newborn procedures can wait while you bond with your baby
  • How to have a rich, plentiful milk supply
  • What you should NOT do in the first few days postpartum (and what you should)
  • Handling newborn jaundice safely
  • The most important “stages” of your newborn’s first hour (and how to protect that critical time)

...and so much more.  You'll learn about the massive benefits of keeping your baby skin-to-skin, what's normal during the postpartum period and what’s not, and important information that will help you strengthen the bond you have with your baby.

I really do appreciate your classes we took. They were our 3rd set of childbirth classes. One hospital class and one Bradley and dh and I still learned things we never knew. The best thing I took away is that I was working with my sweet babe and seemed to really understand that I was connecting with her and communicating with her even when she was in utero. I already felt that before your classes but kind of felt silly for feeling that way, but then realized after taking your classes that I was not silly and what I was feeling was actually very normal.

It is funny that even though I've had her I've thought about listening in on some of your Wed. calls. I haven't yet as we are back to homeschooling full-time and it is hard for me to find time to fit it in, but I did love being on the calls and there's a pull to listen in.

Blessings,
Edwena

And you'll complete this program with...

Week 8: Parenting Your New Baby

In week 8, you’re going to have a little fun as we go into what happens after your bundle of joy gets unbundled and out into the world.

You'll cover topics crucial to your family and your well-being; Baby gear, babywearing, handling crying and colic, co-sleeping considerations, postpartum depression, your postpartum identity, new family and partner issues, and more.

Some of the highlights of this week include:

  • Finding balance between mothering, family and nurturing your own identity
  • How to know when you have the “baby blues” – and how to know if it’s something more
  • How to feel fulfilled as a mother (even when you feel like all you do all day is change diapers!)
  • A proven formula for calming any crying baby
  • Supplements and practical steps you can take to beat postpartum depression (and you CAN!)

...and so much more.  You'll have access to tools that help you keep track of mothering, family, and everything in between – and straight talk on what to do about early parenting issues.

I can't believe how much detail you are able to pack into the class yet make it reasonable and manageable to get through. It's really great!

This is me with my sixth baby, Corwin :)

"I birthed a beautiful baby boy, Lucas, 6 weeks ago. Drug free including a physiological third stage no synthetic oxytocin. So happy and proud of my efforts to achieve a successful VBAC and glad I put the hard work in beforehand with your great course.

I felt the last 5 hours were hard and intense but I knew in myself we could do it and we did it!

Thanks for putting a great course together and for the work you do in cyber space!"
