Support for Expecting Parents

The Hormone of Love is self-paced online class that will provide three information and intimate date nights for you and your partner. Together you'll learn about how to build connection with hands-on support, words of affirmation, and deep conversations so you can work through the challenges of labor as a team. Take this class at any point in your pregnancy.

In Birthing from Within class you'll learn about the stages of labor and common procedures that come up in birth. You and your partner will learn how to cope with the intensity of birth, how to give excellent labor support, and how to prepare to face the unknown with courage and self-compassion. You'll also get FREE access to The Hormone of Love virtual class ($97 value). These classes can be taken any time during pregnancy.

The Birthing Again class is specially designed for couples who are expecting Baby #2+ together. These classes will help get the skills and knowledge needed to face birth as a unified team, and prepare your older child(ren) to welcome a new sibling. You'll also get FREE access to The Hormone of Love virtual class ($97 value). These classes can be taken any time during pregnancy.

My interactive pregnancy journal will help you explore your strengths, wisdom, community, and self-limiting beliefs around birth and parenting. This guided journal is a salve for the soul - helping you foster the self-compassion, resilience, and support you need to get through birth and postpartum.

In a world where pregnancy has become more focused on testing and information than reflection and ceremony, the Heart Centered Pregnancy Deck is a needed guide to help expecting parents slow down and look within. This 35-card deck has daily meditations to help you prepare physically, spiritually, and emotionally for birth.

Preparing for and recovering from birth are complex topics that involve so much more than facts and data, or birth stats. Listen to Nikki's podcast appearances to hear more about why self-compassion is a key ingredient in childbirth preparation, and in healing from and integrating the birth experience postpartum.

Offerings for Birth Professionals

Nikki's Mindful Communication Courses help doulas, midwives, childbirth educators, midwives, prenatal yoga teachers, chiropractors, and lactation consultants connect with their clients and do deep, meaningful work with them as they navigate pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

My work as a Doula, Childbirth Educator, Birth Story Mentor, Birth Professional Trainer, Author, and Coach is all based on the belief that you are incredibly resourceful and competent. My role isn't to give you all the answers. It's to ask you really good questions so that I can better understand your perspective, and you can uncover the wisdom, determination, vulnerability, and self-compassion within.

I know what's it's like to experience confusion and overwhelm during times of transition. That's why I've been passionate about bringing companionship and empathy to parents and professionals since 2012. Are you ready to get the support you need as you cross the next threshold? Let's connect!

Love,
