"I have been having a lot of anxiety around getting ready for my first baby to come earth side as well as feeling overwhelmed with other things in my life. The Inner Wise Woman course made me feel instantly more confident and empowered. All worries and stress went away and I knew that I will be able to give birth at home without needing anyone but myself. The course was honestly my favorite one I’ve taken so far and I really enjoyed listening to the encouragement and empowering lessons. Thank you!" ~Brittany
"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

"This course was a gentle and beautiful reminder that most women today are living within an unnatural timeline invented by a modern society that does not cherish or respect the phases of life that we all inevitably experience. I loved it! Again, you are sharing wisdom and insight that is so needed by so many women today." ~Sarah
I have always intuitively trusted birth, but when I started teaching families, I wanted to offer the wisdom of why we can trust birth. After years of only finding standard physiologic birth training about hormones, stages of labor, and routine interventions, I knew there was something missing, something that would explain what our ancestors knew beyond the externally defined stages of labor that are only useful to give feedback to doctors and midwives, not a woman immersed in the subconscious experience of labor.
I found the first half of what I was looking for when I studied with my mentor of Chinese medicine nearly a decade ago. Then, 10 years later, I found my way to year-long, intensive midwifery immersion course with the best midwife I know, and from this wise woman, I found the other half of my answers. Now I offer you a midwife's traditional knowledge infused with Eastern medicine philosophy to form what I feel is the most complete understanding of physiologic birth for expecting parents.
The way I teach physiologic birth allows the knowledge to become a part of you, so you don't need to memorize any physiology or disrupt your labor with critical thinking to recall what you learned. You will leave this aspect of the program feeling so confident in the instincts of your body and baby and the intuition of your subconscious as the remarkable images of birth used in the program leave a beautiful visual imprint without memorization.
This is why even birth professionals come to the Natural Birth Compass Program when they are preparing for birth!

How do I access the material?
The core material is delivered via online video and downloads through our secure student site. Over the duration of your course, you will have multiple opportunities to join group or one-on-one online coaching sessions to get your questions answered. Additionally, you have access to our birth experts over email so you don't have to worry about missing the answers to anything.
What if I have a busy schedule or my due date is close?
That's ok! This program is on-demand so you can go at your own pace. You have access to the material when you need it and where you need it, so you can prepare anytime. There is a lot of material in this course, and there are several pathways through the material to ensure you get as much or as little as you need for your unique birth. Some families work through the essential material in about 14-days, but to really take advantage of all that this program provides, the most benefit is found by allowing 3-4 months, or even more for a full immersion experience. For those with a significant time crunch (aka, I'm due any day!), the Birth Partner Module contains a list of the most critical materials and can be used as a crash course.
How can I learn about the experience of childbirth online?
The Natural Birth Compass Program is a certified Experience Product®, that means everything we deliver in your course will have your experience in mind. 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 and illuminated for your birth.
Will this class help me if I am planning a hospital birth?
This program has been created around the experience of birth center & homebirth, however, learning about the layers of your Natural Birth Compass will be a great investment in your childbirth preparation for any birth place. 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.
Will this class help me if I am having twins?
I don't specifically cover the unique situation of twin pregnancy and birth at this time, but I have had twin parents use this program to prepare for beautiful twin waterbirths. There are some unique aspects to twins, such as nutrition and the unique way they can experience birth, but much of the preparation beyond is the same and I am happy to talk with you about your questions or concerns before you enroll to be sure this program is suitable for you and along the way as you prepare with the Natural Birth Compass Program material.
How long do I have access to the course material?
Your access to the course material is active for the life of the course, so you can review the postpartum material when you need it most or come back to review if you find yourself expecting another little one in the future.
How long have you been teaching?
I have been a certified childbirth educator for over a decade, and am also a holistic doula, a prenatal acupuncturist, herbalist, and nutritionist, a certified breathwork instructor, and have training in holistic midwifery from The Matrona in order to bring an advanced level of knowledge to this program beyond your average childbirth preparation classes. I have attended home births and hospital births, and have worked with hundreds of families in their tranformation to parents. I am prepared to help you answer any question so you have the most current information available without having to spend hours on the internet.
