When you know what to expect, the fear and anxiety you feel will reduce. You have the knowledge to know what is normal and this allows you to know when to seek help. Because our mental state is so very important throughout the journey, minimizing worrying about things that don’t need attention is so very helpful.

Module 2: Knowing Your Options and Creating a Birth Plan
Having a voice; one of the most important aspects of your pregnancy journey that is sacred and should be protected. While your birth plan or intention is a document that you have ready when going to the hospital, the thought and work that goes into it is equally as important. In order to know what you want, you must know the choices that are available to you. This video course helps you know what happens throughout the process of labor and helps you determine what your opinion, feelings and thoughts are about them. With this information, you can create a birth plan that provides a bridge between you and your care provider.
Module 3: Going to the Hospital and Delivering Your Baby
“How do I know when to go to the hospital?”
“What do I do if they send me back?”
“Whats a hep lock? and do I really need one?”
These and many more questions come into mind when a new mom is in labor and is wading through the series of decisions she must make. This course was intended to shed light on all the varying situations you may come across and give you the tools and knowledge to make those decisions.
Once at the hospital, what happens? Do you have a choice? How do you navigate through labor to help it go the way you want it to? These and more are discussed in this course so that you have the knowledge to do the best you can and influence it to go the way you want!
We have also provided detailed understanding and description of the pushing phase. This is important so you can prepare mentally. For most first time moms, pushing lasts between 2-4 hours minimum. Our clients have achieved wonderful results of pushing less than an hour! How do you push? What to do if you have pain medication? What are the best positions? You will learn what works best for you!
Module 4: Navigating After Birth
You have just given birth and seeing your newborn baby has just changed your entire world. You had given everything you had to your labor. And, then you remember what someone told you: The hard work starts now! What?
Yes, it is true indeed. Before you leave the hospital, many things happen to both you and the baby and again, knowing what choices you have is critical. What do all the tests mean? Are they necessary?
What happens when you go home? How will you do all of this? This course aims to give you some of the things to pay attention to, and provide you with the knowledge to navigate this time much better!
