After our She Births® Private Antenatal Course I felt like I could achieve anything. We felt so empowered but most of all so connected to each other and ready to take on whatever lay ahead. The techniques Nadine taught us to deal with labour helped me to see that. It truly was an incredible experience.
‘We would recommend She Births® to everyone. Everyone. From our hearts, this is the most important thing to do before you have a baby. Especially for the husbands. Seriously, you have to do it. You learn how to be a supportive birthing partner and feel like you’re a part of the birth, where you’re actually contributing.’
‘Such an amazing course and so much knowledge jammed into 2 full on days! We both now feel prepared and ready for the birth of our little baby boy.’.

‘She Births® was just what we were looking for in birth education – the perfect blend of nature and science. My husband felt so comfortable, confident and excited after. Nadine is real, no BS and gave us practical tools (good for the blokes) and reaffirmation that I was born to birth beautifully.’
"Nadine Richardson and her course She Births® is a lovely mix of Buddhism, yoga, science, and street sense! Her emphasis on the idea of 'daddy doula' also enables the partner in the equation to step in and feel a stronger connection throughout both the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period."
I wanted to go to the course and learn about natural birth. It was an amazing experience to bond with Jess and to learn how to support her. Without the course I wouldn’t have known any of those things. The hospital based courses didn’t provide any of that information.
Birth was a really beautiful experience. I felt I could really support Jess – not just physically but emotionally too.
She Births® reminds us guys that we don't need to be afraid… I’m not exaggerating when I say that within the space of these two-days, your perspective of giving birth (and possibly your life) will change forever and for the better. Mine did. Nadine is the real deal!
The education I got as the role of the man from the Online Course was incredible. I was empowered to be the doula for a large part of the birth and this was such a revelation. The impact that has had on my parenting and in my relationship with Carla has been extraordinary.
Thank you also for all you do (and did for us). Whilst my births weren’t necessarily worthy of “poster child status” with She Births®, they were a million times better than they would have been had we not have met you. The confidence you gave me in birthing was amazing- to be honest, I probably would have gone straight down the path of C-Section if I hadn’t met you, such was my fear.
The birth of my daughter is by far the most empowering experience and I know this was made possible by the confidence and knowledge my husband and I got from the two-day She Births® program. I'm so appreciative of having met Nadine at this very important moment of my life. I like to say that I help mothers bloom...well I'd like to thank Nadine for helping ME bloom into the mother that I am today. The work that she does is truly amazing!
She Births® was a great all-encompassing course for us because it seamlessly mixes medical facts with all the natural, hippy stuff we like too. The number one takeaway for us was how much the birth partner gets out of it and is able to be confident and supportive leading up to, after birth and most importantly - on the day.
I had such a positive birth experience. I still have that feeling of WOW - we did it! For me knowledge is power and it allows me to feel really comfortable. There was so much I didn't know before doing She Births®. We did a lot of work with Nadine about birth and about postpartum too, which was key. I loved what I learnt and it really changed the way I approached birth. Support in the room is everything too. There is no way I would have had the outcome that I had if I didn't have a support team. You need people to advocate for you when you can't. I think we started our relationship with Beau on such a great note because I felt so empowered and so excited to meet him. It was a fantastic way to embark on the journey as a mother.
She Births® is kind of like spiritual conscious parenting school - and totally practically too. If you are pregnant - just do it! I don't even know how you would go through the birthing process without She Births®! It is literally so important.The whole course was incredible. Everything you need to know about birth is covered; the pregnancy, stages of labour, post-birth, breastfeeding. We have read a lot so we were already really skilled up but there was so much we hadn't done together.
It is an incredible resource for partners as it shows how the main support person is in fact them. I now feel totally empowered to play that role. I'm really excited to be a part of it and Melissa really knows I have got her.
As a first time mum, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for in birth education. In the end, after person after person recommended She Births® to me, I went for it, and I don’t think I could have found anything more perfect. She Births® offers a blend of science and nature, practical tools and mindfulness. It prepared and empowered both me and my partner for ‘us’ as a birthing team. We walked out of each class feeling so excited. More importantly, it prepared us for any birth with any manner of unexpected twists and turns. In the end, there were some twists and turns, but this did not for one second mean both my births were not empowering, held, magical and transformative. Both births were a dream come true. Nadine Richardson has devised a truly incredible course. She brings a wealth of knowledge, deep insight and decades of experience. I am eternally grateful for what She Births® brought to my experience of birth and I couldn’t recommend it more highly to anyone!.
