I was very thankful for all the tools and techniques I learned from this program. The knowledge made a huge difference and really helped me through a tricky hospital procedure (ECV) followed by labour and the unmedicated birth of my son! Not only was it advantageous to learn about all aspects of giving birth, I thoroughly enjoyed the live interactive sessions and activities. There’s also several awesome Yoga classes and informative interviews (which are really cool).. this program has it all!
I highly recommend this course to all expecting mothers, whether it’s your first or fifth baby, especially if you have any fear around labour.
The Holistic Birth Program was one of the best things I did while pregnant with my first child. Not only is Natalie extremely informative, she encourages you to seek your own evidence-based information and connect with the resources that you really need. Having the opportunity to listen to a variety of practitioners, in addition to the workbook and weekly seminars, was incredibly comforting and valuable. The course did more to alleviate my concerns and fears than anything else I read during pregnancy, and I felt more equipped when speaking with my midwife to ask the right questions and understand the processes and ins/outs of labour, birth and beyond.

“Natalie is completely supportive and extremely knowledgeable. She helped us think about different birth scenarios, and what decision-making could look like in each one. This made us more confident about our ability to navigate unexpected decisions during labour. At the same time, Natalie completely honoured our birth plan and made us feel like our goals were her goals. Ultimately, her calm and persistent coaching was what allowed me to get through the most difficult parts of labour.”
