What our clients say

Pregnant Woman

I Remember...

feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what information to trust, which type of providers to hire to manage my health and wellbeing during my pregnancy and the plethora of other needs that come up along the way.
 

As a doula I hear all the time about the struggles and disempowerment womxn have to go through in their pregnancy journey and how many felt so out of control. Many were made to feel weak when they should be made to feel strong and empowered.

I felt like that needed to change.
 

There needed to be a way to get all the information out there to the masses. A way for people that may not want to hire a doula or be able to and still have the information and support a doula provides. I felt like there needed to be a community of families that connected that could support each other in postpartum

My Goals for You

There when you need me

You can do this course on your own time when you and your partner can do the work. Don't worry about weekly in person classes and possible exposure during these uncertain times. I have a ton of handouts and evidence based information so you can prepare and even print them for the big day. 

 

If you decide to upgrade to a coaching package you also get a custom Trello board with weekly plans and resources and access to [M]otherboard to make your birth preferences list with my guidance and support.

Comprehensive Education

Birth Bravely Academy is a comprehensive self paced childbirth education course that centers on the importance of less is more with birth. What helps us to have positive experiences is care providers that listen and respect you and learning how to ask the right questions. It’s knowing about your options and when to decline them as well as learning deep relaxation and breathing techniques to calm your mind and body. We talk about the importance of position and movement and of course all the stages of labor and immediate postpartum. It’s about education, mindset and being your best advocate.

Mindset Shifts

It takes 21 days to create a new habit. I encourage you to start a mindfulness practice that sticks with you long after baby is born. I want you to be calm in your birth experience so you can have a smoother labor and more supported postpartum. Learning about different relaxation techniques, breathing techniques, apps to download, books to look into, exercises to do and positions to look over (and even practice) all help you to have a more positive experience. 

Need help with mindset and releasing fears? Then my coaching add on are just what you need.

Still Don't think you should invest in your parenthood and yourself?

I get it...I was where you are now.

 

I wanted answers, I wanted options, I wanted my desire for a natural unmedicated birth to be supported, I wanted to feel informed and listened to. 

I've been there.

 

*I want to help you navigate the system that sets you up to fail.

*I want to help you get the right team.

*I want you to feel strong, empowered and prepared.

 

I learned how important true support was.

I learned how important your care provider is and where you give birth.

I learned how important the nursing staff is on your birthing day.

I've learned as a doula, that if you don't put in the work you don't get the results. 

I want to share what I learned with you.

You wouldn't run a marathon tomorrow having never ran before so why would you go into this with no training? Putting some thought and work in now will only help you start your parenthood off strong.

I can help guide you.

Questions, I have answers

Are you saying to yourself...

Couldn't I just hire a doula?


Yes, you can hire me as a virtual doula and you get course, coaching and I attend your birth virtually!!! If, you want an in-person doula, I'm all for it! I can help you if you are local to CT! Either way, you still need a birth education class that teaches you about the amazing process of birth. Take the fear and uncertainty away and stop going to Dr. Google. As a doula, I never felt like there was enough time to devote all my education and coaching to all my clients that's why I came up with this program. This is a comprehensive self-paced birth education course that gives you and your partner the tools to feel empowered with or without me as your doula.
If 1:1 coaching is more your jam and you need accountability and partner prep, let's chat. I also work with other doulas and have a trusted list when I'm not available if you're local to CT.
.




Will my partner really feel ready to support me?


The answer is yes. If you decide to get my coaching add on's, I will establish a strong foundation for your partner to learn from to feel confident during your birth. They can ask me anything so they don't go in blindly. I give you and your partners a full tool box with all the education you need to make informed decisions so they feel confident and ready to support you and advocate for you. Within Birthing Bravely Academy, there is a ton of great partner prep nuggets so they not only know what to do but the reason why.




How is your program different from a quick one day class?


I get it we are all busy and that's why I set this course up to be self-paced so you can learn while you work it into your schedule. Then there's coaching add on's so you get the opportunity to have a doula in your packet for the duration of our contract and meet for live zoom calls to dig deeper and help you both feel confident. I will expand on topics in the course if needed and give you answers in real time. It's like having ALL of the educational benefits of a doula but inspiring your partner to do their best as their important role whether by choosing not to have a doula or maybe your birth place is only allowing 1 support person due to Covid restrictions. Birthing Bravely Academy truly prepares you and helps you to own your birth and feel good about your choices.




My hospital holds a class. Shouldn't I just take it there?


The answer is mostly no. I don't want to generalize but most hospital classes are there to teach you how to be a good patient and rarely go in depth about physiological birth (birth as it is) many leave class just as clueless as before. They'll make sure you know what the epidural looks like though!





Invest in yourself and your baby! Don't miss out on this one a kind program!

A Special Note from Ailish 

The reason I first started my own business is so that I could help pregnant and birthing people have support during their births but I quickly learned I was naive to think that what I was doing was enough. In order for my clients to have fulfilling births they needed to learn how to get respect from their providers and feel empowered and listened to. They also needed a mindset shift so that they no longer feared the process.

The reason I shifted my business into a more coaching and consultant model of care is because I kept hearing from my clients,
 

"I couldn't have done this without you"
 

As a newer doula that statement definitely boosted my ego but then it started to feel uncomfortable over time and realized I really needed to lean into why.

What I heard from students was very different. They thanked me for the education and said they had incredible births and felt excited and empowered in their birthing.
 

They had an empowered and joyful birth without me?
 

That's when it clicked! It's not about me!!!

It's about what I share with them, the prep work, the lists, plans, the real life birth stories, the positive and negative aspects of birth and postpartum and how to navigate them and how to ask for help. Making sure everyone was informed on what to do when things arise. Coaching parents to have the hard conversations with their providers not on the day of your birth but before to make sure they are really on your team can make all the difference. It was about having an overflowing tool box and helping the partners feel like they could support and comfort their partners during their child's birth. 

It's about YOU  having a positive experience. YOU feeling confident, prepared and excited about the process of becoming a parent.
 

If this is how you want to feel then this course is perfect for you!

Giving Back 

There's no doubt BIPOC families face more discrimination and obstetric violence due to institutional racism. I launched this course in November 2020 and for Black History Month in 2021 I decided to run a special that for every course sold, I would donate Birthing Bravely Academy to a BIPOC family in need of education and support.

For years, I never knew how I could help and now I feel like I have a tangible way to help more BIPOC families learn their rights andall about their amazing bodies so I have decided to continue that promo forever. 

So for every course sold, one will be given to a BIPOC family either nominated by yourself or I will reach out to my doula community.
