Live Interactive Antenatal Classes

Our Weekend Course has helped thousands of families create a beautiful birth

Enjoy your live, hands-on, streamed birthing classes, from the comfort of your own home

She Births® would like to reassure you that our Weekend Courses are still running as Live Interactive Workshops.

Same scientifically verified program and the same transformational conversations within a community of like minded families. We are also providing more support and resources as well as discounts. Our founder, Nadine Richardson held a hugely successful Live Interactive Workshop with 14 couples last weekend. Please read the  PDF so you can understand our new offering.

'After both my partner Dean and I attended the She Births 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.'

‘Nadine I’m so appreciative that you were able to adapt and facilitate She Births® as a virtual 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.’
‘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'

Comprehensive program

She Births® is the most comprehensive childbirth education program available – providing you and your partner with a toolkit of skills to support you through pregnancy, labour and your journey into parenthood.

We cover everything you need to know about the birth process and how you and your partner can work together as a team by using active birthing, yoga, massage, acupressure, breathing, relaxation techniques and more, to reduce pain and achieve a safer and faster delivery. We also discuss nutrition and ways to prepare your body inside and out for an optimal birth.

She Births® is the first and only childbirth education program in the world that is scientifically verified to lower epidural rates (65%), caesarean section rates (44%) as well as resuscitation of babies (53%) and even shorten labour by 32 minutes. Find out more about this ground-breaking study here, which was published in the British Medical Journal.

Empowerment through education

The She Births® method allows a deep transformation to take place within every couple. The process fosters a sense of trust in birth and security in each other.

Not only are these factors critical to creating a more natural and beautiful birth experience, but also in creating the foundation for stronger, more resilient families going forward.

The course has also been recognised by the British Medical Journal after the 2016 study showed a 65% reduction in epidural rates and a 44% reduction in caesareans.

It is important that you bring along a birth support person or a doula if your partner is not able to attend. We recommend you bring to the course the person who will be your main support at birth. If there is room you may also request a birth support person and your partner attend the course at no extra cost (generally not possible in Nadine’s courses).
If you are a single mum please contact us directly to see if we can arrange a private Solo Mums course with others. We need 2 – 3 mums to make this happen.

It is up to the individual and how much information you would like to have. However, we find that most She Births® couples only attend our 2 day program. We highly recommended that you take a tour of your hospital and attend any talks they offer on early parenting, bathing, breastfeeding. There is also Dr Howard Chilton’s (neonatologist) at The Royal Hospital for Women, Sydney offered for free on Thursdays.

The whole of She Births® is unique – there is no other ‘yoga based philosophy’ program with a multi-disciplinary and evidence based tool kit available in the world. We have a specific language, sequence and process of transformation intrinsic to the program.

She Births® also uses a deep relaxation method created by Nadine Richardson called; Body Mind Integration Techniques (BMIT). The origins of BMIT are found in the ancient practice of yoga nidra, which is a yogic method for aligning with the highest truth or in modern terms, subconscious mind change.

BMIT is a body based relaxation and hypnosis style process. It is unique from other forms of hypnosis because it is based on very deep physical connection and encourages our 4th state of awareness, transcendence. Nadine has practiced and taught yoga for over 20 years and created the unique She Births® visualisations to help women overcome their fears of giving birth and to enable them to stay ‘within their bodies’ throughout birth.

As well as teaching BMIT we also encourage women to actively embrace the sensations of labour using specific movement and breath work that will increase the bodies natural endorphins, ie. pain killers.

We recommend attending a course between 22-36 weeks gestation.

All the techniques and principles learnt in She Births® are applicable to any birth experience or outcome and highly beneficial to practice during pregnancy. Our booklet also has the most up to date information on how you can create a family centred immune supportive caesarean with your caregiver. We include the most up to date information on how to boost your child’s immune system and how you can recover quickly post surgery.

All the techniques and principles learnt in She Births® are applicable to any birth experience or outcome including a caesarean. They are also highly beneficial to practice during pregnancy because they will allow you to feel calmer throughout and prepared for any birth outcome.

It is often the second or third and sometimes even a scan after 35 weeks that is the deciding factor for your birth. It is important to remember that the majority – in fact over 90% of placentas move up and out of the way for a vaginal birth, because the lowest quadrant of your uterus grows at the very end of pregnancy and draws it away from the cervix.

Don’t miss out on She Births! We can help you and your partner be fully prepared for your birth experience, however it unfolds. Please ask your She Births® Educator for the specific yoga postures and techniques to avoid, and those that will encourage the movement upwards of your placenta. We have huge success with this over the last 10 years.

Yes! We can get all the resources, book and videos to you prior to the course. This means that you can learn the content you need and start to make all the important changes required. Then the face to face course becomes your consolidation and practice for your partner to be able to support you fully. Please phone us to make sure we know and we can get resources to you ASAP.

Some couples choose to do more than one full birthing course and thoroughly enjoy their time spent at each one. However, if you have already done a full independent course and just discovered She Births® don’t panic! You might be able book into a short private session to cover any gaps.
