Erika and Ryan prepared for birth last year using our Online Program and did most of the course via their phones on the app. As you know, online learning takes commitment. But from what we hear, once you just start and see the ‘sexy’ quality we created and ease of watching the bite-size videos it all becomes super easy and even fun to do birth ed in the bus or your lounge room, whenever you want.
Just because you are a postpartum sleep expert also does not mean you know how to give birth right! Erika not only admits that how she thought of birth was just what TV had shown her but she also suffered from severe anxiety in the past and was very worried it might arise during her labour.
“I am 100% certain that the She Births® Course helped me relax during labour, which in turn meant I had an incredible (and short) 5-hour active labour. When I went into labour, I was as calm as could be. I was prepared and knew exactly how to manage my contractions. I found the whole experience empowering, and I have the She Births® Online Program to thank for that. Even when I was in the incredibly painful transition phase (which I knew all about thanks to the course), I was able to recognise it and use the breathing techniques to help me through it.”
Erika Lamour, mum of one and owner of The Sleep Dept
I really love how Erika and Ryan worked together to prepare for any anxiety that may arise during the birth. Part of their work was making the breathing techniques, specifically Blissful Belly Breaths their own. Ryan counted her to the top and the bottom of every contraction #daddydoula.
I love sharing a birth story and super stoked we have a video on our new She Births® Show Youtube TV channel to share today.
