She Births® was without a doubt the best investment I made for my pregnancy and birth. My partner and I did the online program which really worked for us as we could watch it on our smart TV in the comfort of our home, pause and discuss, take notes and practice the massages etc. at our own pace.
The whole experience surpassed our expectations and the knowledge we gained really empowered and connected us.
By the time we were finished the course, we felt genuinely prepared and excited for the birth of our child. It’s crazy to think that prior to doing the course, I had probably spent more time researching prams and car seats rather than learning about how to actually bring my baby into this world!
I truly believe that the combination of She Births® class, the visualisations provided by the course, prenatal yoga (with Nadine Richardson in Bondi) and an amazing Ayurvedic massage the day before I was induced gave me the toolkit I needed to have the drug free, speedy birth I had hoped for.
Don’t get me wrong, nothing went to plan and it was intense and insane, but understanding the process and feeling in tune with my body helped me to feel as in control and calm as I could have hoped for.
It was a truly transformative experience and I know that She Births® played a vital role in that.
I still use the visualisations to ground and calm myself during trying times (baby screaming in your face at 3am anyone?!) and when my bub was 2 weeks old I joined a Soul Mama Circle and that group of like-minded women continue to nourish me on my journey through motherhood.
Thank you Nadine for developing this amazing course, for the yoga, for the Soul Mama Circles – you really are enriching lives and making generations of women (and men!) stronger and more conscious through your work.

After our She Births® Private Antenatal 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.
‘We would recommend She Births® to everyone. Everyone. From our hearts, this is the most important thing to do before you have a baby. Especially for the husbands. Seriously, you have to do it. You learn how to be a supportive birthing partner and feel like you’re a part of the birth, where you’re actually contributing.’
She Births was so transformational for me, I was really afraid of birth before doing Nadine's course and it changed my whole perspective on birth. I did her course twice - for both my babies, who were both born complication free in water just how I envisioned my births to be..’.
‘Such an amazing course and so much knowledge jammed into 2 full on days! We both now feel prepared and ready for the birth of our little baby boy.’.
‘I wanted to send you a message to say a massive thank you for your incredible course, that helped us so much before, during and after labour (I have so much more to say on that!) and to introduce you to our beautiful little girl, Marigold Arundhati Melody Love, born 31 Jan, weighing 9.03lbs after 3 hours of active labour (and after a lunch and dinner of eggplant parmigiana!). The whole experience was incredible! Thank you for the part you played. I’ve been terrified of birth since I was a child and your course got me from a fearful place to feeling absolutely in awe of what I was able to do in labour. ’.
‘We took the She Births® course when I was pregnant with Indi and it was such a pivotal piece piece in our pregnancy journey leading up to the births. Supporting both Tony and I to be prepared, aligned and empowered for the iniatation that is birth ’.
‘We would recommend She Births® to everyone. Everyone. From our hearts, this is the most important thing to do before you have a baby. Especially for the husbands. Seriously, you have to do it. You learn how to be a supportive birthing partner and feel like you’re a part of the birth, where you’re actually contributing’.
‘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.’
"Nadine Richardson and her course She Births® is a lovely mix of Buddhism, yoga, science, and street sense! Her emphasis on the idea of 'daddy doula' also enables the partner in the equation to step in and feel a stronger connection throughout both the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period."
I wanted to go to the course and learn about natural birth. It was an amazing experience to bond with Jess and to learn how to support her. Without the course I wouldn’t have known any of those things. The hospital based courses didn’t provide any of that information. Birth was a really beautiful experience. I felt I could really support Jess – not just physically but emotionally too.
She Births® reminds us guys that we don't need to 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. Nadine is the real deal!
The education I got as the role of the man from the Online Course was incredible. I was empowered to be the doula for a large part of the birth and this was such a revelation. The impact that has had on my parenting and in my relationship with Carla has been extraordinary.
Thank you also for all you do (and did for us). Whilst my births weren’t necessarily worthy of “poster child status” with She Births®, they were a million times better than they would have been had we not have met you. The confidence you gave me in birthing was amazing- to be honest, I probably would have gone straight down the path of C-Section if I hadn’t met you, such was my fear.
The birth of my daughter is by far the most empowering experience and I know this was made possible by the confidence and knowledge my husband and I got from the two-day She Births® program. I'm so appreciative of having met Nadine at this very important moment of my life. I like to say that I help mothers bloom...well I'd like to thank Nadine for helping ME bloom into the mother that I am today. The work that she does is truly amazing!
She Births® was a great all-encompassing course for us because it seamlessly mixes medical facts with all the natural, hippy stuff we like too. The number one takeaway for us was how much the birth partner gets out of it and is able to be confident and supportive leading up to, after birth and most importantly - on the day.
I had such a positive birth experience. I still have that feeling of WOW - we did it! For me knowledge is power and it allows me to feel really comfortable. There was so much I didn't know before doing She Births®. We did a lot of work with Nadine about birth and about postpartum too, which was key. I loved what I learnt and it really changed the way I approached birth. Support in the room is everything too. There is no way I would have had the outcome that I had if I didn't have a support team. You need people to advocate for you when you can't. I think we started our relationship with Beau on such a great note because I felt so empowered and so excited to meet him. It was a fantastic way to embark on the journey as a mother.
She Births® is kind of like spiritual conscious parenting school - and totally practically too. If you are pregnant - just do it! I don't even know how you would go through the birthing process without She Births®! It is literally so important. The whole course was incredible. Everything you need to know about birth is covered; the pregnancy, stages of labour, post-birth, breastfeeding. We have read a lot so we were already really skilled up but there was so much we hadn't done together.
It is an incredible resource for partners as it shows how the main support person is in fact them. I now feel totally empowered to play that role. I'm really excited to be a part of it and Melissa really knows I have got her.
As a first time mum, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for in birth education. In the end, after person after person recommended She Births® to me, I went for it, and I don’t think I could have found anything more perfect. She Births® offers a blend of science and nature, practical tools and mindfulness. It prepared and empowered both me and my partner for ‘us’ as a birthing team. We walked out of each class feeling so excited. More importantly, it prepared us for any birth with any manner of unexpected twists and turns. In the end, there were some twists and turns, but this did not for one second mean both my births were not empowering, held, magical and transformative. Both births were a dream come true. Nadine Richardson has devised a truly incredible course. She brings a wealth of knowledge, deep insight and decades of experience. I am eternally grateful for what She Births® brought to my experience of birth and I couldn’t recommend it more highly to anyone!.
Nadine Richardson, She Births® founder is one of the longest standing doulas in the eastern suburbs of Sydney and with over half of our families asking her to recommend or send her little black book of doulas, she decided to curate a team of the best in the business all trained and experienced in the She Births® methods.
Our Doula packages for mums and families are practical and nourishing. Based upon what Nadine has been providing to families for many years and what thousands of mums have told us they really want and need.
Have a chat with our Doula Coordinator so she can talk you through the strengths and skills of each doula. We are here to hold your hand across the 'meet and greet stage' or set up a 'chemistry call' so you can choose the best doula for your family.
Our online birthing classses have all the wisdom and experience Nadine has gathered and shared over 20 years. You will be able to undergo the same transformative process, but it can be done in your own time, at home.
For some, it is actually more effective. They can review content as many times as they need, there are also forums with Nadine each week that will allow you to ask any questions that may arise during your pregnancy.
We recommend beginning your program between 14-36 weeks gestation.
Most of our families only complete our program and get amazing results. Although, we do recommend taking a tour of your hospital before the big day.
Course content will be available to you for 12 months. Not only can you prepare for the birth of your baby, but you’ll be able to review our breastfeeding and parenting content in those early days after birth.
Of course you can! From Australia, call 1300 101 SHE (743) during business hours. For international calls or calls outside of business hours, email email@example.com.
