Prepare for a Positive & Confident Birth Together!

You're pregnant and feeling all the feels! You feel excited, elated and then the reality can set are you going to get the baby out?! How will your partner confidently support you?! How will you know if you need an intervention? How will you know when to go to the hospital?

Go on 5 birth-focused dates with your partner to prepare for a confident birth experience so that you can have less pain, fewer interventions, and feel safe, loved, and connected as you give birth TOGETHER!

"WOW! Birth Dates was truly an extraordinary experience. In just 5 weeks, my husband and I learned SO much. We are going into this birth with SO much knowledge and confidence, and that’s all attributable to Sherilee and the Birth Dates curriculum she has created! What stuck out to me most was the idea of it being a Birth DATE. This class offered a time for us to sit, learn, and practice new things TOGETHER. Birthing a baby is a TEAM effort and we now feel ready to take it on as a TEAM." ~ Hilary L.
