Still have questions??
How long is the course?
This course is self paced, meaning that you can spend as much time as you want to complete it. How long it takes will depend on where you are in your pregnancy and how deeply you choose to engage with the content.
How do I use it?
You can use this course however you like! You may want to set aside a special time each week for "classes" or you may just want to drop in to the website whenever you feel like it.
What is covered?
This course focuses on the spiritual and emotional aspects of pregnancy and birth. We explore our beliefs about birth, our fears, our hopes, and our expectations. The course also covers information on self care, hiring a doula, creating a birth plan, partnership, preparing for the postpartum period, and more. There are visual guides for labor positions and babywearing tips, information about managing stress, and pain management tools and techniques.
What is not covered?
This is not a childbirth education course. While there is some information on the technical aspects of birth (such as labor positions and pain management) this course does not cover the developmental process of pregnancy, the stages of labor, or "what to expect when you're expecting." Most mothers will want to supplement the info in this course with books about pregnancy and birth and/or a childbirth education course (recommendations for these are listed in the resources section of this course.)
I'm planning on having a cesarean section-- is this course for me?
YES! This course is for any mother, planning any kind of birth (or even those who don't know what kind of birth they want!) The focus of this course is on preparing ourselves for a peaceful and powerful birth-- however and wherever it takes place.
Is this course for me?
If you are a pregnant mama looking to dive deeper into the experience of pregnancy and prepare for a blissful, empowering birth, than this course is for you!
Who is this course NOT for?
This course is not for you if you are not interested in getting in touch with your spiritual/emotional self or if you aren't interested in self exploration and growth.
What do I need to complete this course?
All you need to complete this course is an open mind and heart. You'll also probably want to have a journal on hand, as well as a few simple art supplies and access to a printer, but those things are all optional. :)
How much does it cost?
The course is $40- and I promise to make it every penny! :)
