Before you go, let me introduce myself to you in case we haven’t met yet!
I’m Carly Bonderud.
I’m a childbirth educator, birth advocate, and coach and I teach moms who want to have a birth with less pain, avoid unnecessary interventions and birth trauma by showing them how to get over their fear and position themselves as decision makers in their care! My specialty is helping moms who have had previously traumatic births figure out what happened, why it happened, and how to have a healing, empowered birth with their next child, whether pregnant already or planning for another baby.
If you had a previously bad experience and want more than one child, then I’ll help you get the birth you actually deserved to have the first time! Your body didn’t “fail” you and birth isn’t “supposed to be” traumatic. In fact, even after a previously traumatic birth you can go on to have an empowering and healing one!
I’ll teach you everything you need to know about how birth actually works, why it’s often not supported in the mainstream maternity care system, what your doula may be afraid to tell you, what your midwife, nurse, and even a truly supportive doctor wishes you already knew, and how to get exactly what you want in your care and in your birth experience! Even if you did “all the things” before, I’ll tell you why it didn’t work, and how to choose differently and avoid the traps so many parents fall into when hiring support in their birth.
Every week I also teach Live inside the Facebook Group for Empowered Moms on a variety of topics from pregnancy through postpartum. I also bring in several of my friends in the birth community, including doulas, midwives, and even nurses to give you a completely FREE birth education unlike any that you typically find in the childbirth classes!
Why do I do this for you? Because I didn’t have it when I was a scared first time mom wanting to avoid an epidural and a cesarean and was also terrified of birth before I learned how it actually works! I made a lot of mistakes and I didn’t know where to look for help, and I want to make sure that you can have a much better experience than I did; one where you make all the decisions that are right for you and don’t carry that trauma and regret. I also know what it’s like to be pregnant again after a previously traumatic birth. I was obsessed with getting a “do-over” and while I had a lot more knowledge than the average second-time mom, I still faced moments in my pregnancy and labour when I almost gave up and it took a lot of shifts in my thinking and overcoming my own fears to achieve that beautiful, undisturbed homebirth of my daughter.
My children are growing up and my passion for helping moms has now compelled me to teach what I’ve learned both as a mom, an advocate, and an insider within the birthwork communities I’m a part of. It’s time for you to come to your birth from a place of power instead of a place of fear!
