Private Programs and Birth Mentoring
The perfect way for busy couples to prepare for childbirth! Our Educators teaches private courses and offer birth mentoring sessions regularly. A private course is taught over 8 hours face to face and usually broken into 2 classes of 4 hours each. Nadine is available sometimes on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday between 4-8pm or 12-4pm and other Educators may be available a other times.
To arrange a private course or mentoring with founder Nadine Richardson please contact our office directly to discuss on phone: 1300 101 743 (SHE) or email: [email protected] To arrange a private course or mentoring with one of our Certified She Births® Educators please complete the registration from below and we will be in touch.
A private course or mentoring session allows couples to ask specific questions about their birth and be able to work with their individual needs, at a time that suits them.
An intensive She Births® course can be conducted in 2 sessions of 4hrs. The same content of our face-to-face group courses is taught, however couples are asked to watch our She Births® videos at home prior. All private couples receive the Essential Resource Package as per group courses.
The basic Private She Births® program with our certified Educators is charged at $995 inc. GST per couple. A private program with the creator of She Births®, Nadine Richardson is only available upon request – POA. A quick check in consult closer to your due date is often chosen by couples and can be scheduled face to face or on Skype and is charged separately.
Please complete the enrolment form at the bottom of the page with your preferred dates and Educator of choice. Once dates are confirmed with your Educator you can pay a deposit plus balance the week prior. Resources are emailed to you upon payment so that videos and other materials can be watched in preparation for your course.
A minimum 2 hr booking is required. Ideal for couples or mums in preparation for their second or third birth or as an alternative to attending a Refresher She Births® Course. A mentoring session can also be the perfect adjunct to completing the She Births® Online Course so that your partner can practice all the practical She Births® tools for birth like massage, acupressure, rebozo and more. If you need to plan for a Family centred & immune supportive caesarean section then a 2hr mentoring session is also ideal.
Mentoring Sessions can be booked directly with an Educator of your choice through their Bio pages. They are charged between $80 – $100 per hr depending on the region. Mentoring sessions with Nadine Richardson are available in Bondi or via Skype – POA.
Similar to a Mentoring Session a Refresher program is available to couples who have attended She Births® previously. Ideal for Mums and partner who would like to reconnect with each other, rehearse all of the massage, breathing, yoga and acupressure techniques as well as prepare consciously for their next birth.
Some couples choose to attend a full face-to-face She Births® weekend with Nadine at half price and this is recommended if your first birth was complicated or you are now preparing for a VBAC. Other couples may attend half the weekend course in consultation with Nadine prior, at a quarter of the price. If you would prefer to prepare privately or have limited time then a Mentoring Session could work too.
Birth Debriefing Sessions
These sessions are available for mums or couples who have unresolved questions about the unfolding of their birth experiences. Sometimes mums feel trauma, sadness, grief or shame when birth did not go to plan or when things changed dramatically or quickly. Although we plan for this as best we can at She Births® it is important to acknowledge, process and feel content with your birth experience post partum. After de-briefing with your caregivers unresolved feelings may still be present. Even challenges experienced early postpartum with breastfeeding or family issues continue to be carried within our psyche and in our relationships with ourselves, our children and our partners. Indeed, post partum depression although deeply entwined with our genetics and dramatic endocrine changes is also deeply linked to our experience of birth or the great change in identity as a woman. It is possible to understand, to heal and feel free with the right support and presence.
