You Are The Hero Of Your Birth Journey.

Because this is YOUR VBAC Experience, you will:

Engage

Working together, you and your partner will choose what energy and support you want to bring with you into your experience. Helping you uncover the many ways you can approach your VBAC, this course invites you to discover the mental games that you play, how to set boundaries with the ‘nay-sayers’, and tap into what you each need to feel supported and heard, ultimately leaving you with a deeper understanding of what a satisfying birth looks like for you. 

Discover
When navigating a road less traveled, it can be helpful to look back at history to properly overcome its challenges. In this portion of the class we will travel back to the 1700’s and discover what kinds of things have lead us to where we are today and how this affects our modern-day birth options- allowing us to better understand the ‘secret menu’ of choices available to us. 
Explore
Reminding you of the magic and tools of labor, we will explore the chapters that make up the physiological and anatomical process of birth, including the hormonal chemistry, and what your baby and your body are doing through each stage. Leaving you prepared not only for the physical aspects of labor but also for the equally important emotional side of birth.
 
Practice

Once we’ve established that you and your goals are unique, we can find methods for relaxation and pain-coping techniques that will match your approach. We will discuss natural and medical pain relief options giving you the flexibility and confidence to utilize tools when and where they are useful for you.

Ultimately, our mission is to leave you (the hero of this journey) with more than knowledge but a Tome of Birth Wisdom and a prepared party member ready to fight by your side.

Leanna is very well educated when it comes to birth. She answered all of our (very detailed) questions and provided everything we needed to visualize and prepare for our hospital birth. While we did have a natural birth in the hospital, we went in with a sense of peace feeling informed about the procedures and options I had if an intervention was needed.

I was a bit leery about this class only being one day and not a traditional multi-week class. Due to work and being 36 weeks, I needed something short and sweet.  Leanna came well prepared for our session with activities, visuals, and a parent guide and was ready on the spot to answer questions and concerns. This class was very thorough and helped me feel like I put a lot of effort into preparing myself in just a short amount of time.

Hannah R. | First Time Parent

Leanna has such a sweet doula heart! She is very knowledgable about pregnancy and birth and helped us prepare so well for the birth of our daughter.

Shannon S. | First Time Parent

Leanna was a pleasure to work with. She is kind and patient, as well as compassionate about personal choices. My wife and I would recommend her in a heartbeat to other expecting parents, especially because the entire course is based off of what YOU want, and not a particular method.

Michael G. | First Time Parent

Leanna was so sweet and shared so many resources with us. I appreciate the support and guidance we gained, resulting in a healthy and safe delivery!

Erin S. | Third Time Parent

I appreciate how truly compassionate Leanna was during our classes. She was knowledgable and made our experience feel so personalized.

Stephanie S. | First Time Parent

Honestly, I didn’t really want to take a birth class. After some persistence, I decided to go for it last minute. I LOVED IT! She knew what she was talking about and took us through the most relevant parts for our situation. It was more helpful than I thought it would be as I realized I did have wants and needs for my experience.

Emily C. | Second Time Parent

Leanna was much more skilled and educated than I would have anticipated an instructor to be. She helped us to know exactly what we wanted in our experience and made sure she understood our wants and needs exactly before jumping into the education session. I would recommend Leanna to any pregnant person I meet because of how knowledgable, professional, kind and personable she was!
