My trip to the US is fast approaching! I am so excited to be returning to the States in April to bring She Births® to expectant mums and their partners in New York and Los Angeles.
If you have any pregnant family or friends, or know any birth workers, women’s health specialists (physios, nutritionists, osteos, acupuncturists, etc) or prenatal yoga teachers, in either city, I would be so grateful if you could forward this onto them, or put me in touch directly.
Did you know? There has been a 500% increase in caesarean rates in the USA over just 2 generations, with 1 in 3 births a caesarean delivery.
Let’s think about that stat for just a second: 1 in 3.
Why is it that women’s bodies are perfectly capable of growing a baby human, but 1 out of every 3 women’s bodies (1.3 million women each year) cannot birth their baby without major abdominal surgery?
And: Despite these high caesarean statistics, the USA rates the worst in maternal morbidity and mortality rates of all developed countries.
There are many issues that are contributing to these shocking statistics – and mostly it’s similar to our situation here in Australia, just amplified.
Knowledge is power. It’s through high quality birth education that we can start to turn these statistics around, and empower women and their families to experience better, safer, and more beautiful births – giving them the best possible start to their parenting journey.
How can She Births® help?
She Births® is an evidence based and holistic antenatal course, interwoven with my many years of experience in the birthing room and intuitive knowledge.
I created She Births® in Sydney, Australia, 10 years ago and am honoured to have since supported more than 8,000 women and their partners become mothers and fathers. I have witnessed their fear transform into confidence and excitement as their due date approaches, and cried many happy tears receiving their beautiful birth stories and photos.
She Births® is the only scientifically verified childbirth education course in the world, proven to improve birth outcomes for mother and baby.
The course has undergone randomised controlled trials, with groundbreaking results published in the British Medical Journal showing that She Births® couples experience a 65% reduction in epidural rates, 44% reduction in c-section rates, 53% reduction in the resuscitation of babies, and shorter labour by 32 minutes.
And 98% of She Births® couples describe their birth as beautiful.
So we know She Births works®. And it works because of our unique three pillar approach: Knowledge, Inner Strength, and Outer Support.
In the 2-day course plus additional online resources, we cover everything you need to know about the birth process and how to support your body and mind, so that you feel fearless (and even excited!) about giving birth to your baby.
You will learn about active birthing, yoga, massage, nutrition, acupressure, breathing and relaxation techniques, effective partner support, and so much more, so that you can experience the best birth possible.
We prepare you for every birth scenario, allowing you to create a positive birth experience even when medical assistance is needed or chosen.
Our comprehensive She Births® toolkit of skills and knowledge will also enable you to enjoy a smoother pregnancy, and set the foundation for conscious parenting.
So if you are concerned about how you (or your partner!) might cope on the big day. Or if you want to create a more natural, gentle and joyous birth experience and are looking to gain some practical skills, this course is for you.
Everyone can benefit from She Births®, and with the right preparation it is possible for you to create a beautiful birth experience, no matter what unfolds.
In a nutshell: 10 reasons why She Births® is the must-do birth course – for everyone!
