It's the deepest preparation for birth you can do.
This workbook will help you to:
Meet the unpredictability of birth with the deep knowledge of your ability to birth
Develop a birth plan or set of intentions that feels right to you, but also develop the resilience to navigate whatever transpires during your birth
Consider how you want to feel and be treated while you birth your baby into this world.
Write a birth plan with SOUL - one that is meaningful and powerful.
"I knew I needed something to help me process my first birth and move towards preparing for my 2nd birth, but I just didn't know what. I thought about counselling, or a post-partum debrief, but couldn't find the right person, and didn't know where to start. Then I found your birth principles.....ahhhh what I sigh of relief! It took me in ALL the right directions. These were outstanding questions I deeply needed to ask myself, reflect on and articulate in the context of this new pregnancy. Thank you for sharing such a thoughtful, thought provoking and healing tool."
"The Birth Principles Workbook was such a great resource for deep digging! It's the perfect reflective exercise for people who love to write - I wrote 15 pages answering the questions! I feel even more excited to meet my little guy, and plan to be in a state of hopeful expectation (one of the phrases I identified as a birth principle!) when I do! Thank you!
"I can honestly say that I would have much preferred to answer the questions you put forth rather than the ones I was given in through the prenatal classes my husband and I attended before our first child was born nine years ago!"

Hi, I'm Jessie. I'm a mother of two beautiful children, and I've been supporting women as a Certified Birth Doula for ten years. I am also a Breastfeeding Educator and a Sacred Pregnancy Instructor. I am a Certified Life Coach through the Centre for Applied Neuroscience and the Centre for Narrative Coaching and Design.
The Birth Principles concept was born as I was preparing for the birth of my son, and wanted a different, more meaningful way to convey not just my preferences for my birth, but my deepest beliefs in my ability to birth. I hope the Workbook helps you to do the same thing.
The Birth Principles Workbook is changing the way women prepare for birth. It helps women get to the heart of what's most important to them and feel truly confident as they birth their babies.
