With the right preparation it is possible for every family to create a better and more beautiful birth for themselves and for their baby.

Mums and partners discover a broad range of techniques to support themselves and each other during pregnancy, birth and early parenting.

We prepare you for labour but also for easier breastfeeding and settling as well as conscious parenting principles that you will carry forward into the rest of your family lives together.

She Births® is highly inclusive and empowering of even the most reluctant birth partners. And certainly no experience in yoga or meditation is required to take part or implement the methods.

She Births® provides empowerment through education and is designed to give the power of childbirth back to the woman in the most natural way possible. Watch this video of Nadine Richardson explaining why she created She Births® and how it is uniquely crafted to completely change your experience of birth from our cultural norm.

Our Clinical Trials are Complete

A 5 year study conducted by the National Institute of Complementary Medicine at Western Sydney University has been published in the British Medical Journal ‘BMJ Open’ with remarkable results

The unique study of 176 couples in randomized controlled trials was facilitated in two major mixed demographic Sydney hospitals. Founder of She Births, Nadine Richardson provided background intellectual property including concept, methodology, course materials and training for the study.

It highlights dramatic improvements for the Study group who participated in the She Births program, in comparison to the Control group who received the standard hospital birth preparation course. The Study group experienced less medical interventions such as epidural and caesarean section providing a safer outcome for their babies. Couples experienced shorter labours, particularly second stage (pushing) by 32 minutes and a 12% reduction in perineal trauma.

This is the first time the world has seen such significant results via a childbirth preparation course (Cochrane Review 2007). Overtreatment within our modern maternity systems and the commonly experienced cascade of intervention continues to rise.

However, this study and the accessibility of She Births are now set to positively impact the way every woman around the world, and critically her partner prepares for childbirth. Contact us today if you would like to make She Births available within your community or your hospital.
