Are you a care partner to pregnant or post partum folks?

Featured in:

I help care partners take a solution-focused approach to preventing birth trauma in the birth space.

The challenge with the role of care partner is that there are few supports out there willing to address the reality of birthing in a hospital. Care partners can be someone like a spouse or family member or a birthworker, doula, or other privately sourced support person. Birthing folks rely on their care partners to protect their choices, but no one is equipping those people to do so.

The Birth Toolkit

Investment starts at $99

A vault of solution-focused resources for pregnant and postpartum folks (and the care partners, like you, who support them). 

The Birth Toolkit is prenatal education, postpartum support, and community cultivation all in one. It is easy to use for the entire team. 

 

1:1 Consultation & Mentorship

Investment starts at $149

1:1 consulting offered for birth partners and companions, to help them feel prepared to effectively support the birth person. Do you have a tricky scenario you’d like to work through as a birthwoker or doula? I’m here for you too. Professional development is my jam. 

For those of you still working within the Medical Industrial Complex (Healthcare System) or who have shifted away from common practice – you are likely feeling isolated amongst your peers and not sure what you’re even allowed to do. That is where mentorship can help.

Birth Trauma Prevention Training

Investment starts at $199

Taking the Birth Trauma Prevention Training you will gain insider knowledge about the expectations of other care team members and how you can navigate the system as a birth professional (birthworker, doula, midwife etc.)

You truly have immense power as a privately hired support.

You will learn these hands-on skills supported by deep discussion through 3 workshops:

Level One: Beyond the Basics

Birth trauma within the context of modern healthcare

Level Two: Protecting Decisions

Impacting the Environment & How to Do It

Level Three: Taking Action

Advanced Advocacy Skills

 

In-person Level One workshop in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in June 2022.

  • Every mom who didn’t experience a seamless, perfect birth experience needs to check out The Good Birth Co. Emily Edwards was my doula for Mateo and helped me navigate having a baby in a pandemic, as well as unravel some of the trauma from my birth experience with the twins. It’s so wonderful having such an unbiased, knowledgeable cheerleader in your corner when you’re going through such a significant change such as bringing life into the world.

    – Ashley E., Birth Experience Consulting Client
  • Pregnant people will benefit from Emily’s years of experience navigating the hospital setting as a nurse. This gives her the ability to challenge policies as she was working with in the system. Her current role supporting birthing people and their families means she can provide accurate information, non-biased information that her clients can make true information choices with. Anytime a medical professional presented a policy that would potentially prevent me from birthing how I wanted to, I brought it to Emily and most times my birth rights trumped the policy.”

    – Ashley M. of Mind Online Therapy
  • Having the opportunity to share my journey, concerns and wishes with Emily and hearing everything she shares has helped empower me to ask more questions and validated my own feelings/intuition. Especially when I felt confused, at risk and not being supported. Having care providers that also support me does make me feel like I’m not fighting alone.
