Read on to learn how the Take Charge of Birth Program can optimize your chances of having an Empowered, Transformative birth.

Early Family Planning

The best time to start planning your pregnancy and birth is before you even get pregnant! If you’re planning to conceive your first child or grow your family, then this is for you!

We’ll work together 1-1 to examine any fears, misconceptions, or concerns you have about pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and parenting. You’ll get a clear vision of what kind of experience you want to have and learn the strategies to implement it. The bonus is that because you are not yet pregnant you will have a comprehensive education and know your rights, options, and how to ask for what you want so that when you do get that positive test result you’ll know exactly where to look for support from a doula and how to hire the ideal care provider who will work with you and for you.

For First Time Moms

Did you know that your first birth sets the stage for subsequent births? 1 in 3 mothers experience birth trauma, and this can affect how births unfold and what choices we make in future pregnancies. As a first time mom, you deserve to have an Empowering, Positive birth the first time!

You’ll have access to the best educational resources, mindset training, 1-1 virtual support each week, and will learn your rights, options, and how to implement the Take Charge of Birth Program into all aspects of your care and planning. Give yourself the Best Chance at having an Empowered Birth right from the start. ❤

For best results please book while you are in your first or early second trimester.

Allow for at least one month from your estimated due date for completion of all materials.

The “Do-Over” Birth

Maybe your first birth didn’t go to plan, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a better experience this time around!

If you had a traumatic, disappointing first birth or if you’ve already had one or more previous cesareans and want a better experience whether that’s a repeat cesarean or VBAC, then this is for you!

You’ll have access to the best educational resources on pregnancy, labour, and birth after a cesarean (if applicable). You can optimize your chances of having a VBAC, learn your options and create a birth plan for a more gentle, family-centered cesarean, and go into this birth confident and in control, no matter the outcome!

For best results please book in the first trimester or before you become pregnant again.

Enrollment in this package requires at least 3-6 months in advance of your scheduled cesarean date or estimated due date if you’re planning a VBAC as search for a supportive care provider may take more time to implement.

You Can Have an Empowered Birth…

EVEN if you’re planning a cesarean!

EVEN if you have complications that require an induction!

EVEN if you aren’t able to hire a doula!

EVEN if you aren’t planning a home birth!

EVEN if you know absolutely NOTHING about birth and are scared out of your mind!

“Being informed made all the difference”

On June 1, 2019 I delivered my 8 lb 1 oz baby girl at 41 + 2 and it was a very successful VBA2C! Without the information I got I would not have had the confidence to advocate for myself the way I did. I had such a supportive husband and medical team on my side and everyone cheering me on right until the end which made it even more special. Being informed made all the difference. Thank you again.
