Still have questions?
Unmedicated Academy was made with the following moms in mind:
The first time mom who wants to go unmedicated and doesn’t know what to expect.
The second, or more, time mom who wants a better birth experience.
The mom who wants to avoid unnecessary interventions.
The mom who does not want to be coerced or scared into a medicalized birth.
The mom who wants to learn how to advocate for the birth she wants.
The mom who wants a home birth style birth in the hospital. text goes here
Whenever you are ready to start learning and feeling powerful!
I recommend enrolling no later than 34 weeks. It is good to spend at least 6 weeks going through the modules and bonus material.
You will also have unlimited access for life, so enrolling anytime after the first trimester is great! As soon as you enroll you can start taking advantage of the pregnancy bonuses and the weekly Q&A session.
So different- this is not your typical childbirth education. I do not recommend the hospital childbirth education because it generally teaches you how to be the patient the hospital wants. And honestly, if you want a physiological birth in the hospital, you may have to rock the boat a little because most hospitals are not set up to support unmedicated birth.
Unmedicated Academy has several lessons made specifically for navigating physiological birth in the hospital setting that do not apply to home birth. (But would be great information in the case of needing a transfer or risking out of home birth) Of course, you are still welcome to enroll for the bonus content and weekly Q&A.
Alternatively, for a home birth, you could enroll in my Unmedicated Birth Basics mini-course.
The biggest goal with Unmedicated Academy is to feel empowered to choose what is best for you. If your goal is to go unmedicated and you don’t achieve that, I have confidence that knowing your options and advocating for what you want will result in a positive birth experience even if it’s not 100% unmedicated.
Absolutely! Your partner may take the whole course on their own time with your login, you can do each module together, or they can only do the modules you want them to do. I recommend partners, at the least, complete the Team Module.
You could DIY your birth education and figure it all out on your own. I did! But it took me two less-than-perfect unmedicated hospital births, becoming a doula, reading dozens of books, doing additional research on evidence based practices and physiological birth, and more to finally get the unmedicated hospital birth right. Instead of doing ALL that while living your life and growing a human, get exactly what you need from someone who has done it all already- me! The BEST part about the course is it’s going to save you a ton of time, AND you have the additional support from me along the way.
The course will always be $297. I do offer a 4 month payment plan option at check out which allows you to get started now for $80. Another option is to create a support registry with Be Her Village, add Unmedicated Academy, and let your family and friends fund your birth education.
Be sure to take a look around once you’re inside the Academy and if you are unsatisfied for any reason, you can request a full refund within 7 days of purchase.
Virtual birth support is not included with Unmedicated Academy- but I made the course to get you so prepared that you’ll know everything I would say and do if I WAS there with you. You also have the option to upgrade your enrollment to Unmedicated Academy and add on 6 weeks of Doula on Demand at a huge discount- this service is usually $300 and you can add it on for $100. With Doula on Demand you can be in contact with me all through early labor. Additionally, I do offer separate 1:1 birth support (starting at $700) – email me to inquire.
