Built on a foundation of holistic midwifery specific to homebirth families who want to make their own choices in birth and are looking for accurate and reliable education so you feel prepared with the confidence of a midwife.
Packed with techniques from across time and cultures to awaken your intuition and instinct, you will have more than a list of comfort techniques, but an entire system that becomes so second nature you and your birth partner will embody the knowledge that extends beyond today's doulas.
Designed to empower your knowledge of all aspects of pregnancy and birth because your birth outcome is determined before you even go into labor, it starts in your prenatal care, so in this course you also learn how to take charge of your prenatal care so you set up your birth for success.
And, your course will have a personalized touch after you and your birth partner take your birth assessments and learn your communication styles and how to best support each other through pregnancy, birth, and on the journey of parenting.
"I am really enjoying the course and just being able to do this because it almost feels like life coaching mixed in with birth prep..." ~Starre
What makes an effective birth environment and why what you think you need might be wrong.
What to do to encourage your labor to start on time (without castor oil, dates, Pitocin or other things you don't want!).
The most important thing you need to understand to keep your birth in your control, and why not knowing this leaves your birth up to your care provider.
The communication techniques that will work in any birth situation to get you the answers you need.
The one thing your birth partner needs to know to be the support person you can depend on.
Don't want a status quo birth left to fate and the decisions of their providers.
Want to understand the birth cycle at a deep level that empowers them with knowledge beyond the traditional childbirth class.
Know that there is more to birth than hormones, breathing and stages of labor.
Want a class that sets them up for more than just a transformational birth experience; those who want to use the lessons of birth to become more conscientious and prepared parents.
Thought they were prepared after taking a childbirth class, reading the books, and researching online, but it wasn't enough.
Unknowingly set themselves up for failure by focusing on the wrong information.
Handed authority to their care provider without even knowing it.
Reached the end of their birth and their care providers didn't stick to the promises they made.
Were not prepared for unexpected problems that required interventions they were hoping to avoid and they didn't know how to navigate through them.
Didn't want to repeat the mistakes they made in their first birth.
You want to know every intervention that could come up during birth: I want you to be prepared for birth and have the best communication tools possible to navigate birth rather than worry you with every possible scenario that probably won't even happen if you really understand the true nature of birth, but again, if this is what you feel you want to learn, this class series is not for you.
You want someone to tell you what to do: There is not one way to birth, so there is no one thing I can tell you to do for a successful birth. Instead, approaching birth using your Natural Birth Compass and your Birth Vision will set you up to direct your birth experience and make autonomous choices the whole way through, but if you prefer to be directed, that's ok, but this isn't the course for you.
You don't want to explore yourself as part of your birth preparation: The experience of my students and the outcomes of their births has proven that those who know themselves, their strengths and challenges and how to appreciate them, use them, and prepare for them, have the most positive and empowered birth experiences. But, it's not everyone's cup of tea, if learning about yourself sounds dreadful to you, this course is not for you.
"I now know that I have choices”
“I feel more prepared to support my wife and communicate with our caregivers”
“I feel ready to handle making decisions that may not be what I first planned”
“This class covered a whole range of topics in ways that weren't covered in other classes”
"I was much more at ease and more emotionally prepared. I felt like I knew what to expect every step of the birth and prepared to take on any challenges thrown my way. That gave me confidence and peace of mind... I was interested to see how focused I became during my labor and my reliance on the compass cycle for recovering for the next contraction." ~Jen
Maria had to move from a home birth to a hospital birth due to pre-eclampsia, her Natural Birth Compass helped her create the birth environment that supported her pain medication-free birth even after a Pitocin induction.
Susan had a calm and controlled VBAC by following her Natural Birth Compass to guide her through her birth, even when her VBAC friendly doctor wasn't available and her doula missed the birth.
Yvonne used her Natural Birth Compass to have her twins vaginally and in a regular labor and delivery room instead of the operating room her doctors wanted her to birth in.
Hundreds of other expectant parents have used their Natural Birth Compass to have calm and confident births in birth centers, hospitals and in the comfort of their own homes, and you can to.
Immediately after you join the course, you will:
Start working on your new vision for your birth by getting clear on what you have thought about birth and seeing what the new possibilities are for your birth.
Take your Natural Birth Compass Assessment so you know your type and can start to use what you learn about your type to inform your birth preparation.
Start connecting with others going through the course and preparing for their birth so you have a whole community to support your preparations and help you welcome your new one into the world.
Get ready to see the magic of birth through a whole new perspective with a higher level of confidence!
By the time you finish the Natural Birth Compass Program you will:
Understand what your unique needs will be for your birth based on the foundation of your type so you can be prepared for your birth and not just birth in general.
Communicate clearly and easily with your birth partner and your birth team so you don't feel unsupported or overwhelmed at anytime in your birth.
Have the reassurance that you know what to do in any situation because you understand the cycle of birth and how to keep labor on track.
Trust your birth and your body because you know how to assess what is going right and when something might be going wrong for you and your birth.
Have a levelheaded approach to pregnancy, birth, postpartum and newborn care so you can have a more calm and peaceful transition into becoming a mother, whether it's for the first time or if you're adding a new baby to an already busy life.
Feel excitement about your birth and the many new adventures your new family is yet to experience!

I am confident that the material will exceed your expectations while creating an unforgettable experience, but what is most important is that you feel prepared for your birth.
Will this class help me if I am planning a hospital birth?
Yes! The Natural Birth Compass Program will be a great investment in your childbirth preparation for any birth place, home, birth center or hospital. The only pre-requisite is that you must want to be confident in your ability to give birth and be in control of the process so that you can achieve the best outcome possible.
How long have you been teaching?
I have been a certified childbirth educator for over a decade and am now pursuing midwifery training at The Matrona so I can bring an advanced level of knowledge to this program. I have attended home births, birth center births and hospital births and am prepared to help you answer any question you might have so you have the most current information available without having to spend hours on the internet.
What if I have to miss a week?
That's ok! The course is structured so you can go at your own pace, and you have access to the recordings when you need them, so you can catch up when you are ready, just be sure to get back to it before your due date!
How long do I have access to the course material?
Your access to the course material is active for 12 months so you can review the postpartum material when you need it most. We are adding new material regularly to support both pregnancy, postpartum and newborn care, plus great community support, so many of our parents stick around for awhile.
