Get Ready for Labor with an Interactive Childbirth Class that Doesn't Read Like a Boring Textbook
Without the granola, sugar-coating or fear mongering. Pants optional.
Badass Birth Academy gets real about what's coming, while arming you with the confidence and tools you need to know that you got this. You’ll get all the benefits of your local prenatal class, without the awkward small talk. Plus you'll be able to get educated on your own time without having to leave your house.
This course is for you if...
You're Feeling Unprepared
You might be sitting there wondering what the heck you've gotten yourself into! Don't worry, I will fill you in on all your options, give you coping strategies and prepare the crap out of you.
You Like to Keep it Real
You’re the type of person who wants to hear it like it is. You don’t need any extra sugar coating or fluff. This course is all about telling it like it is. The ring of fire? Yeah, that’s a thing we'll talk about.
You Don’t Dig Fear
Sure, you want to know about the difficult stuff, but you don’t want to be scared shitless, either. After this course, you’ll walk away knowing the challenge ahead, but thinking “I got this”.
At the end of this course, you will have...
- a handle on what childbirth actually feels like, in real life, and what to expect.
- information about all your birth options-- their risks, benefits, and alternatives.
- a birth plan that suits your needs and can be tailored to a multitude of scenarios; you’ll be prepared for anything!
- a handle on when to stay home, and when to get your ass to the hospital.
- the confidence and tools to cope with contractions.
- a partner who knows how to support you, and how not to be a douche.
- strategies for pushing and the assurance that if you’re poopin’, you’re doin’ it right!
- postpartum recovery tips and a plan for the first weeks home with baby.
- a community of like-minded new parents.
- feelings of excitement, empowerment, and readiness…and sore abs from all the laughing.
And this ain't your mamas prenatal class!
This course is more practical in nature and not super crunchy. I solemnly swear to never refer to childbirth as “magical” or “a journey” or teach you that "hee hee hoo" breathing.
It's Not Boring
I know that you want to learn while also having a good time, so I got you covered. I'm all about fun and cheesy games. So get ready to learn and laugh, while trying really hard not to pee a little.
No Pants Needed
Pants? Who needs them, amiright? I bet you prefer to be as comfortable as possible, and sometimes that involves no pants. Hey, I’m not judging…and because it's a digital course I won’t even know!

I cannot wait to teach you all about childbirth!
I’ve been a doula for over a decade now, and a childbirth educator for many years. It’s not uncommon for expecting parents to start my classes feeling nervous and down-right terrified about childbirth. One of my greatest joys is seeing these same parents end my class feeling lighter, excited, confident, and prepared for labor. With the launch of Badass Birth Academy, I get to help parents from around the world to make this same shift, and I’m super pumped about it.
I look forward to meeting you personally inside Badass Birth Academy.
You got this!
