Zoe & Benji Marshall

TV Host & NRL Player ‘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.’ @zoebmarshall

Nadine is an incredibly sincere and gifted teacher. She combines her personal experience with modern science and timeless wisdom. As a man I felt it was the most vital preparation I could have done.’ @garygorrow

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.’ @natbassingthwaighte

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.’ @petajean_          


Anna Kooiman

Anna Kooiman, TV Host, Fitness Instructor ‘I had a great She Births® experience. Partially because of the skills I learned, I was able to have a drug free, natural birth, even with a posterior baby. My baby boy is now a month old and I am such a proud mama! She Births® not only taught me skills for labour but also for successfully breastfeeding.’ @annakooiman          


Kimmy Smith

The Fit Mummy Project ‘The great thing about doing the She Births® Online Course is that we could do it at our own pace. We could go back over any areas whenever we needed, engage via the Facebook Forum and Nadine was there to answer questions as we went along.’ @kimmysmithfit              


Amy Molloy

Author, Editor ‘Through my two births – one that went perfectly to plan and one that didn’t – the tools I learnt through She Births® became my anchor. They soothed me, grounded me and bonded my husband and I together. Nadine is the reason the video of my first birth went viral with 80,000 views in 48 hours –  people couldn’t believe how much fun we had during labour! ‘ @amy_molloy

Bassike Co-founder ‘I just wanted to let you know that the She Births® Private Birthing Class 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.’ @bassike                      


Dr Jason Kaplan

Dr Jason Kaplan Cardiologist ‘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. ‘


Louise Cridland

Organisational Psychologist ‘Learning about neuroscience, the body and practical tools in the program empowered me to trust my inner strength and resilience. I now feel psychologically and emotionally stronger and more prepared for life in general. The skills you learn in the She Births® program are not simply birth skills, they are life skills that you use when managing difficult relationships, to high stress in the workplace. I would recommend anyone preparing for labour, birth and parenthood – while trying to manage a busy career – to do this program.’


Phillip Dove

Business Analyst, AMP ‘This has been nothing short of life changing. I just wanted to thank you for guiding us so beautifully and for giving Catherine the courage to be the phenomenal woman that she is. Through She Births® and your prenatal yoga classes, she was able to build the mental and physical strength that she needed to fully embrace the whole experience. You have a phenomenal product that every pregnant woman needs, wants and deserves.’


Marie Vinnell

Director, Societé General ‘I am extremely grateful and also humbled by your generosity of spirit and knowledge about birth. She Births® allowed us to trust my body to achieve the birth we wanted.  I’m sure that the gentle birth has influenced the calm nature of my little girl. The techniques I learnt in the course were absolutely critical to the birth outcome, but the most important skill She Births® gave me was the confidence to do it. ‘


Vanessa Megan

Organic Skincare Specialist, Founder Vanessa Megan ‘I wanted to have as much knowledge about every other option and that is why we chose She Births® – it had active birthing, hypnobirthing, everything! So if one thing wasn’t working I had others to go to. All the couple things we did really brought us closer too. It made him feel like he had a job. It wasn’t just about me and the midwife. it was about us, getting our baby out.’ @vanessameganskincare


Ben Briand

Director ‘The psychological shift that I had during the course was huge. Us fathers have our own anxieties, worries and concerns that are coming from rational and often irrational places. She Births® for the dads just helps you to be OK with all of that. There might not be an answer for it but there are certainly a lot of techniques and ways to think about things that can help you. Whatever price you are paying know that the emotional rewards, the knowledge and the experience you get is incomparable. I highly recommend it for any father.’ @benbriand    


Erika Lamour

Infant Sleep Specialist, The Sleep Dept. ‘I am generally an anxious person, so even though I was so excited to have fallen pregnant, the thought of labour scared the hell out of me. I found the She Births® online course and knew it was the right course for my partner and I. In labour, I was as calm as could be. I found the whole experience empowering, and I have She Births® to thank for that. Even when I was in the incredibly painful transition phase (which I knew all about thanks to the course), I was able to recognise it and use the breathing techniques to help me through it. Thank you, Nadine and the whole team at She Births®.’ @thesleepdept

Social Impact Entrepeneurs, The Ted Noffs Foundation ‘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.’ noffs.org.au          


Grant Lyndon

Actor, Founder of Busy Dads ‘The one thing I really love about Nadine and her course is that she talks from experience with confidence – and she offers statistics that prove her approach actually works. That gives a lot of confidence as a Dad. Men are either too much in the birth room or removed in the room. Once they are ’tooled up’ from She Births® and have the information that is shared with their partner, it is very powerful.’ @busydads            


Brenda Briand

Creative Director, Accessories Designer ‘I truly believe doing the She Births® course, even the second time around, was the only thing that allowed us to go through birth well. When I went into high risk category I just thought, OK this baby is coming out but we can do this. Even though things have changed we’re still in control of the situation. Because I know what’s happening with my body. I realised that I was in control. That it was me going to get that baby out and not the staff around me. I had the knowledge that there are things that I can do – to make this the best birth possible.’ @benah              


Jonni Pollard

Meditation Teacher, Author ‘The education I got as the role of the man in this course was incredible,” says Jonni. “I was empowered to be the doula for a large part of it and this was such a revelation –  and the impact that’s had and the role it had on my parenting and on my relationship with Carla.’ @jonnipollard                  


Catherine Mack & Rick Donald

Actors ‘She Births® was the best thing that we did during the pregnancy – the most impactful and informative by a mile. I didn’t know much about the birthing process, our options, useful strategies and tools and Nadine really opened my eyes to the possibilities of having a joyful and beautiful birth. The course was a great balance of scientific elements and practical tools – yoga, acupressure, breathing and visualisations. It really was the best decision to be a part of the She Births® family by diving into the course and absorbing all of the incredible information.’ @misscatherinemack

Elizabeth Evans

Women’s Health Physio ‘I have been recommending the She Births® program for many years to my pregnant clients, and the change in women after participating in the course is remarkable. She Births® gives women the confidence to trust their bodies and the birth process. It provides them with the knowledge to make decisions that feel right for them as individuals. One of the my favourite things about the program is how informed and excited the birth partner reports feeling! Ultimately, She Births® results in a couple that is not only empowered for the birth ahead, but excited – which in my opinion is exactly how it should be.’                      


Emily Batts

She Births® Product Queries & Observe & Assist Program Management Working for She Births® (I did admin and behind the scenes work, hi!) I watched, read and listened to a lot of people’s own experiences – the full range, and whilst some have bad and sad experiences, women are made to birth. Biologically, babies can fit and squeeze and move and caesareans are beautiful if that’s the path taken. “Every birth is beautiful” and every women is capable. TV and film representation is nonsense and those people who go out of their way to tell you their negative of scary stories need to move along ? Be prepared, knowledge Is powerful but don’t let fear take over.                        


Elise Clement

Life Coach and Wellbeing Consultant ‘The birth of my daughter is by far the most empowering experience I’ve gone through to this day. 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. She gave us the tools we needed to prepare for the birth we desired. My husband ended up being the best support partner I could have wished for, so calm and steady throughout the entire process. The birth of my daughter was also the starting point of a deep soul journey, colourful, challenging and rewarding all at once.’

Sarah Mason

Expectant first time mum ‘After both my partner Dean and I attended the She Births® birthing class workshop via online video conference, we were both pleasantly surprised how accessible and interactive the experience was. Dean was most hesitant before joining as the thought of missing out on face to face interaction was a concern for him. However once we were all connected online, (we hooked the computer up to our TV) we could speak and interact freely with one another, sharing and listening to thoughts, feelings and questions. After the weekend was finished we were quite thrilled to have completed the course in the comfort of our home and still felt like we were connected with Nadine and the other She Birth participants. We have plans to meet face to face with the people in our workshop group once the pandemic challenges settle down.’                            

She Births®


Expectant first time mum ‘Nadine I’m so appreciative that you were able to adapt and facilitate She Births® as a virtual antenatal class workshop. What you shared was incredibly useful, relevant and you really encouraged the dads to step up as Daddy Doulas. I felt so held and am 100 times more confident that he and I are equipped on our journey bringing bubba earth side. Thank you with all my heart.’

Expectant first time dad ‘We couldn’t have been more satisfied with the virtual learning environment. If you have found yourself in a similar position, fearnot. We gained as much as we would’ve from attending in-person and encourage you to approach the experience with that in mind. There was plenty of space and time for individual contributions, partner exercises, and Q+A which dissolved many concerns we had’

Jennifer Simkins

She Births® Mama “Before She Births® I was very anxious about the birth process. The course provided information and advice that made me feel informed and empowered. I was actually looking forward to labour by the end of the course because She Births® gave me and my partner confidence in my body’s ability to perform the miracle of birth. Ultimately our birth was the most joyous experience of our lives. It was fast, pain-free and brought us together as a family. She Births® was instrumental in achieving the birth we hoped for because it gave us the philosophy and practical strategies to achieve the perfect birth experience.”

Rachel Molloy

She Births® Mama Before She Births® I feared labour. Hollywood would have me believe I’d be rushed screaming in my car to the hospital, screaming at my husband for putting this ‘thing’ inside me, feet strapped into stirrups by a doctor, a lot of screaming and three pushes later VOILA, a screaming baby! But, labour was not something I was particularly looking forward to. She Births®. It transformed my whole perspective. My husband and I watched short videos and grew more confident together. Nadine’s soothing voice combined with the education and understanding of what would happen to my body, and how to cope was amazing. Understanding our body’s powerful role in labour, and how to actively birth, the breathing techniques and, also, visualisations, truly helped. I have been telling anyone who will listen that She Births® is a brilliant birthing resource for a positive birth: single friends, married friends, potential grandparents! I feel so privileged to have been so prepared for my first. Thank you again, Nadine, and your team, for providing me with the tools I needed to have a successful birth. I think back fondly to my daughter’s birth. I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved. I am also in awe of my husband for labouring with me and am so grateful for this bonding experience.

Amelia birth story

Amelia and Vince Wilson

She Births® Mama “ Our little boy Arthur arrived ten days late at 12.51 am on Tuesday 28 April. He’s 3.7kg and 52cm and is amazing. He wasn’t engaged until labour and was posterior until the very end when he finally turned, the long way around, just as Kelly mentioned they usually do. I’ll send more details when I have a clear mind but just wanted to send the most heartfelt thank you for everything you did to help me be strong and ready and to trust myself. I had contractions for 24 hours and a long second stage and made it through with breathing, gas and air, tens and morphine, plus a great husband and medical team. We have absolutely no regrets and I know I wouldn’t have had that amazing birth experience without SheBirths.”

She Births® fundamentally altered our trajectory. It gave us the knowledge to feel we were in control of our own birth. We felt so confident in our decision making. I could truly trust my body and our baby without fear. My whole birth story here.

Jacinta Young

My partner and I were lucky to have two private sessions with Nadine in our home. Our experience with Nadine and She Births was fantastic from the get-go. Having the private sessions allowed us to dive into the content and focus on detail that was relevant & practical. All of the online resources were helpful and I particularly loved the meditations which I listened to every night ahead of the birth.

Ruth Carnac

She Births was without a doubt the best investment I made for my pregnancy and birth. My partner and I did the online course 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 have finished the course, we felt genuinely prepared and excited about 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’m so grateful for having taken the course: my birth experience was beautiful and SheBirths helped tremendously, I used many tools from the course. I gave birth vaginally with no drugs except a bit of gas (which mainly helped me focus on the breathing) and didn’t consider getting an epidural at any point. I’m very proud of myself and can’t wait to share my story with as many people as possible! I will also definitely recommend your course to others. Attached is a picture of me, my son Theo and my amazing doula Anna-Maria approximately 90min after giving birth 🙂

Alegra Ally & Himba women

Alegra Ally

If someone asked me what I knew about giving birth, I could describe one of the most sacred moments of my life, witnessing a traditional umbilical cord ceremony by Himba midwives immediately after the birth of a baby. Then, there was a time I stood quietly in anticipation deep in Siberia as a labouring woman prepared for a hospital transfer. Or, the time I was blessed enough to experience swimming in the ocean with a mother whale and her newborn calf as she gently nudged her baby to the surface. As connected as I’ve felt to each birth I’ve seen, I was always holding space and honouring the birthing experience of others. Now pregnant for the first time, I have to adjust to being the subject of birth. When I learned of Nadine Rishardson’s @shebirths childbirth education program, I knew what I wanted more than anything was to connect more deeply to my own pregnancy. Throughout the weekend of childbirth education, my partner Erez and I began to feel more confident, more prepared and more excited for the upcoming birth. The tools learned during the weekend made us both feel more prepared to anything which may unfold during labour and beyond. https://www.instagram.com/wombsphere/
