At Birth Matters, that's what we do: equip families to physically, mentally, and emotionally step confidently into the unknown of their own labor, birth, postpartum, and parenting realities.  That’s right – equipped and confident!

So much about these experiences is amazing and inspiring, but we're often limited in our view of them by what we’ve been taught and absorbed all our lives.  At Birth Matters we take the time to undo those cultural myths and begin to replace them with the likely realities.  By doing this, we open up the world of possibilities for you and your family.  What can labor, birth, postpartum and transition into parenthood look like?  Well … start dreaming.  It can be so much more than you have absorbed through our culture and in movies and TV shows! 

We want you to make your birth and parenting experiences your own, truly a reflection of what you find important.  And we want to help you find out what is important to you by offering what is difficult to find these days - clear, accurate, comprehensive, evidence-based education.

To find out more about us, head over to our testimonials page.  These are real mothers and fathers who have taken our classes and shared their feelings and reactions after crossing over to the “other side”.  They are our greatest joy and encouragement as we keep doing what we do! 

Don't hesitate to contact us us if you have any questions or comments. And be sure to follow us on facebook.

Our best wishes for your family on your journey into parenthood!
