‘She Births® reminds us guys that they need not 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.’

Mary Lou Ryan - Bassike Co-founder

‘I just wanted to let you know that the She Births® Private Course that we both did with you were so helpful in birthing Barney. As well as your amazing prenatal yoga. I had a beautiful home birth with Scott, the midwifes and my 2 sisters….It was incredible and I feel blessed. So thank you, the work you are doing is wonderful and I hope many more women will be touched by your wisdom.’

Natalie Bassingthwaighte - Recording Artist, Actress

‘After our She Births® Private 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.’

Peta Kelly - Author, Social Entrepreneur

‘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.’

INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED

“She Births® prepares women with more realistic ideas of what to expect during labour” – Jessica Turner, 10 Eyewitness News

The course has been recognised by the British Medical Journal after the 2016 study showed a 65% reduction in epidural rates and a 44% reduction in caesareans.

Payment can be put towards a Private Program with your Educator.

It is important that you bring along a birth support person or a doula if your partner is not able to attend. We recommend you bring to the course the person who will be your main support at birth. If there is room you may also request a birth support person and your partner attend the course at no extra cost (generally not possible in Nadine’s courses).
If you are a single mum please contact us directly to see if we can arrange a private Solo Mums course with others. We need 2 – 3 mums to make this happen.

It is up to the individual and how much information you would like to have. However, we find that most She Births® couples only attend our 2 day program. We highly recommended that you take a tour of your hospital and attend any talks they offer on early parenting, bathing, breastfeeding. There is also Dr Howard Chilton’s (neonatologist) at The Royal Hospital for Women, Sydney offered for free on Thursdays.

The whole of She Births® is unique – there is no other ‘yoga based philosophy’ program with a multi-disciplinary and evidence based tool kit available in the world. We have a specific language, sequence and process of transformation intrinsic to the program.

She Births® also uses a deep relaxation method created by Nadine Richardson called; Body Mind Integration Techniques (BMIT). The origins of BMIT are found in the ancient practice of yoga nidra, which is a yogic method for aligning with the highest truth or in modern terms, subconscious mind change.

BMIT is a body based relaxation and hypnosis style process. It is unique from other forms of hypnosis because it is based on very deep physical connection and encourages our 4th state of awareness, transcendence. Nadine has practiced and taught yoga for over 20 years and created the unique She Births® visualisations to help women overcome their fears of giving birth and to enable them to stay ‘within their bodies’ throughout birth.

As well as teaching BMIT we also encourage women to actively embrace the sensations of labour using specific movement and breath work that will increase the bodies natural endorphins, ie. pain killers.

We recommend attending a course between 22-36 weeks gestation.

All the techniques and principles learnt in She Births® are applicable to any birth experience or outcome and highly beneficial to practice during pregnancy. Our booklet also has the most up to date information on how you can create a family centred immune supportive caesarean with your caregiver. We include the most up to date information on how to boost your child’s immune system and how you can recover quickly post surgery.

All the techniques and principles learnt in She Births® are applicable to any birth experience or outcome including a caesarean. They are also highly beneficial to practice during pregnancy because they will allow you to feel calmer throughout and prepared for any birth outcome.

It is often the second or third and sometimes even a scan after 35 weeks that is the deciding factor for your birth. It is important to remember that the majority – in fact over 90% of placentas move up and out of the way for a vaginal birth, because the lowest quadrant of your uterus grows at the very end of pregnancy and draws it away from the cervix.

Don’t miss out on She Births! We can help you and your partner be fully prepared for your birth experience, however it unfolds. Please ask your She Births® Educator for the specific yoga postures and techniques to avoid, and those that will encourage the movement upwards of your placenta. We have huge success with this over the last 10 years.

Yes! We can get all the resources, book and videos to you prior to the course. This means that you can learn the content you need and start to make all the important changes required. Then the face to face course becomes your consolidation and practice for your partner to be able to support you fully. Please phone us to make sure we know and we can get resources to you ASAP.

Some couples choose to do more than one full birthing course and thoroughly enjoy their time spent at each one. However, if you have already done a full independent course and just discovered She Births® don’t panic! You might be able book into a short private session to cover any gaps.

Buy rebozo, post natal belly belts, prenatal yoga video and visualisations, along with specialty packs for couples preparing for Breech Birth, VBAC and Caesarian Section.
