10 years ago, I was working as a doula and prenatal yoga teacher… I ran my first birth education course over a cup of tea in my Bondi living room… My son Leroy was 6 years old and I was a solo mum.
I had no idea what I had got myself into and I had no idea where this was going or what life was going to look like next week, let alone in 10 years’ time. How things have grown!!!
This week we celebrated the birthday of our very first She Births® baby, beautiful 9-year-old Leela (who is also my god daughter). I was so honoured to teach my first couple, her parents and be at little Leela’s birth – it was a purely magical and extraordinary unfolding of Nature; mixed with the fullness of life… pain, joy, connection, release, surrender, support and of course celebration.
She Births® has come a long way over the last 10 years, and we have now brought She Births® to over 8,000 expectant parents! Thank you all so much for making She Births® the movement of love, positivity and change we long to see in the world. Together when we heal birth, we heal the earth.
To celebrate our 10th Birthday throughout the year we will have lots of giveaways, special offers, and of course a big party for our amazing She Births® community! Stay tuned for details.
Below are 10 reasons why She Births® is the must-do birth course – for everyone!

They say things cycle around every 9 years, so now it is time to launch in the Northern Hemisphere.

10 reasons why She Births® is the must-do birth course – for everyone!
- Fact: She Births® is the only childbirth education course (in the world) proven to improve birth outcomes for mother and baby, with results published in the British Medical Journal that include a 65% reduction in epidurals, 44% reduction in c-sections, shorter labour by 32 minutes, and more.
- We take an evidence-based, holistic approach, that covers everything you need to know about the birth process and how you and your partner can work together effectively to reduce pain, achieve a safer and faster delivery, and experience an empowering birth.
- If you (or your partner!) are concerned about how you might cope on the big day, She Births® will help you overcome your fears so that you feel confident (and even excited!) about the birth of your baby.
- We provide you with knowledge and skills to prepare your body, inside and out, for an optimal birth, and so that your baby is off to the best possible start.
- Dads and partners love She Births® because it gives them access to an effective toolkit of skills to draw upon to support you during labour and birth, and the knowledge to be your advocate, and cheerleader!
- Equipped with She Births®, you will be able to navigate the busy hospital system, ask the right questions, and avoid unnecessary medical intervention.
- She Births® will set you up with conscious parenting principles that you will be able to carry forward into the rest of your family lives together.
- Choose from group Weekend Courses, Private Courses or our Online Course – which enables you to complete the program anywhere in the world, at your own pace.
- When you book into a She Births® Course, we sponsor one African family for a whole year to receive pregnancy, birth and childhood support through Totohealth’s revolutionary mobile technology program.
- 98% of She Births® couples describe their birth as beautiful!
If you have any pregnant friends, please share this with them so that they can create a beautiful birth, no matter what unfolds.
