the labor mama


Evidence-based pregnancy classes focused on education, empowerment, and most of all, you

What if this can be better than you think it can?

It's okay to be nervous. It's okay to have a healthy level of fear. It's okay to not be entirely sure how this is all going to work out. But don't stop there. You can lean into all of that. You can get at the heart of your fears, your nerves, or your anxiety and turn all of that hesitancy into strength. You can learn what is true about birth (including hospital-birth) - and then take those truths into your birth-day and feel incredibly confident (no matter what comes).

Hopsital childbirth classes just aren't enough. You deserve to know more than what they'll teach you. It's your right to actively participate in your birth with joy, courage, and strength.

You can get all of that here.

empathy of a mama,
education of a nurse

It took me one birth in nursing school to fall in love with all things pregnancy, birth, + postpartum. And once I became a labor, delivery, and postpartum/newborn nurse and mama of three of my own littles? I was so sold on this entire story - from the dreaming to the growing to the birthing to the raising of these little lives - and I couldn't believe more that the more you know, the more you're going to enjoy the highs and the lows of this incredible story you're writing.
