Prep for Birth: 
A Pelvic Floor Movement-Based Birth Prep Workshop

This in-person course will equip birthing individuals with knowledge and understanding of their pelvic floor, core cannister, and pelvic biomechanics as applicable to the birthing process. 


Birthing individuals will learn how alignment, breath, movement and birth positions can facilitate the birthing process by increasing push power, promoting greater ease and creating pelvic space. Focus will be placed on ways one can preserve their perineum and pelvic floor in pregnancy and during birth. 

This class is a great addition to a traditional birth course and will equip you with essential information not covered in traditional birth courses.

Why are we so passionate about this workshop?



We want you to feel empowered with accessible and applicable information that you can take into your birth setting.​

We want you to develop an understanding of how your body works so you can work your body best in birth.​

We want to provide you with simple movements that will not only help ease some of the aches and pains of pregnancy, but will also prepare your body for birth, and postpartum.​

We want to arm you with the best birth positions, which will support your breath, create pelvic space, decrease perineal tearing, and preserve your pelvic floor.















"We both felt so empowered & confident after attending the birth positions class. We have been sharing our experience with family & friends. We feel strongly that every birthing pair/birther & support person should attend your session & will continue to recommend it to our loved ones!"

Prep for Birth is an amazing workshop that is taught by two wise and wonderful women! I have taken many pregnancy and birth workshops through my work as a doula and this one is definitely in my top three in terms of information and the format it was shared in. I feel this class can support you to MOVE through your birthing time and feel empowered to follow the wisdom of your body, as well as give you the practical tools support you as well! 


It’s a great class for your birth support person to take as well as it helps them to know what might be effective at different times during your birthing time and the body literacy to feel confident in their role. 


I highly recommend Prep for Birth to all the pregnant folks, you won’t regret it!

This workshop is exactly what the prenatal community needs. Birth is a natural event & too often women go into it with fear instead of excitement & faith. This workshop presents Birth as it should be & gives parents the tools & knowledge necessary to believe in their bodies ability to Birth their babies.
