After the beautiful hospital birth of our first child, I realized there were some things missing from the childbirth classes that we attended during my pregnancy. Before we became pregnant again, I was researching what I had missed and, in doing so, awoke a passion for maternal care and childbirth that has only deepened over the years, leading us to have our second and third babies at home with a remarkable midwife.
My husband is the one who nudged me towards birth work, declaring that I "really needed to do something about this weird love of watching birth videos. You need to be a doula or something." He was right! When looking into what I wanted to teach, Birth Boot Camp's science-based curriculum appealed to me with their "tool box" of information, allowing parents to make the best decisions for their prenatal support, labor preferences, and newborn care.
I wish I had known about BBC for my own pregnancies, so I am thrilled to be able to share it with you!
