For birth that
belongs to you.


No birth horror stories here – you deserve so much better than status quo.

You deserve a birth that is the most beautiful and transformative experience of your life.

Whatever your plan, we provide the tools to achieve a positive, fear-free and empowered experience free from unmanageable pain.

Nobody "delivers" your baby. You birth your baby. And that is pretty damn powerful.

For birth that belongs to you.

No birth horror stories here – you deserve so much better than status quo. You deserve a birth that is the most beautiful and transformative experience of your life. Whatever your plan, we provide the tools to achieve a positive, fear-free and empowered experience free from unmanageable pain (no thanks!). Because nobody "delivers" your baby. You birth your baby. And that is pretty damn powerful.

This program is right for you if...

✓ You know or have a feeling that there is more to birth than we typically see in the mainstream. We give you the whole, evidence-backed truth.

✓ You do not want to suffer through unmanageable pain in birth. We arm you with the knowledge and skillset to take control.

✓ You want a fear-free, empowering birth experience and you're looking for the tools to get you there.

✓ You want a judgement-free experience. You want a program that helps you get your ideal birth, and gives you the tools to change your mind, too.

✓ You want a flexible, high-end experience that you can take at your own pace and refer back to at any time – but that still offers high touch support.

✓ You've never given birth and you're feeling a bit scared or overwhelmed (we've been there).

✓ You have given birth, but maybe it was a deeply disappointing or possibly traumatizing experience. You want better this time.

✓ You're serious about having a positive, fear-free and less painful – if not painless – birth experience.

Worried About the Pain of Childbirth?

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

That's exactly how I felt when I was pregnant for the first time. I was super excited... about the baby. NOT the birth.

But what I learned showed me that we literally have the power to change how – and even if – we experience pain during birth.

I went from being the most scared human being on the planet of labour and birth... To having two medication-free births that were completely right for me.

So how do you get from overwhelmed to an empowered place where you make decisions that lead to way less pain?

We break it down at this free session and share about the tools to get you there.

Christine Sexauer,
Certified Childbirth Educator

A self-proclaimed birth nerd, Christine is a mom to three loud, messy and wonderful children. For the last three years she has worked as a child birth educator with the most well-attended prenatal program in British Columbia, and has educated over 600 families. In her own words: 

My empowering birth experience opened my eyes to what is possible. It isn't about how we birth that makes it powerful, but rather that we are supported and respected. As an educator, my goal is to provide up-to-date, evidence-based information so everyone can own and be proud of their birth, and feel supported in their decisions. When I teach, I not only want to educate birthers and their partners, but I hope to pass my enthusiasm on how amazing birth is, how capable we are, and build excitement for their own birth journey!

Since 2012, Allison has attended births and provided child birth education to hundreds of families. She is now the co-founder of One Tough Mother, and lives on Vancouver Island with her husband and two children. In her words:

"In addition to teaching, I've attended hundreds of births and I feel like the same story repeats itself. Someone goes into birth believing they are capable (and they absolutely are!) but they don't understand how our medical system works. I frequently hear about couples sitting in their postpartum room, at a time when they should be marvelling at this beautiful baby who joined their family, and instead they’re Googling what just happened to their bodies. Interventions happen to be a part of most birth stories and I want to help people ensure they are prepared to make those decisions so their unique birth experience can be beautiful."
