Balance Your Birth




Use bodywork techniques for a more comfortable birth with fewer interventions.

Give your body the support it needs during birth! These bodywork techniques can be done with your partner or birth support person - and it doesn’t require any previous experience! Reduce complications and interventions with gentle techniques that take just a few minutes.

About the course

You’ll receive a series of easy-to-follow videos that will guide your birth partner to restore balance to your body and to your baby during birth. These techniques will help decrease your discomfort, eliminate pain, give your baby space to find their own ideal position, enabling a more positive birth experience with fewer interventions.

Here’s how it works: you’ll have access to this course via an app on your phone. You’ll begin by finding your dilation (0 cm with inductions, all the way to 10 cm with active labor and pushing stage). Then, your birth partner will follow the videos recommended for your labor, so you’re getting the exact balance you and your baby need in real time, no matter what your birth brings.

Restore balance during childbirth to maximize space for baby in the pelvis and uterus, decrease interventions, decrease the length of labor, and improve the birth experience for you and baby.


More positive birth experience 

Less pain in contractions

More space for baby to descend through the pelvis 

Less tearing / fewer episiotomies

"The results are immediate - after the first time doing the ‘Back Pain’ techniques I was able to have a more restful night’s sleep"

“I love that the videos are super short and easy to follow, making it something I’ll *actually* do everyday. Already after watching it twice, I was able to remember the techniques independently and I love that. The results are immediate - after the first time doing the ‘Back Pain’ techniques I was able to have a more restful night’s sleep, with less wake ups/tossing and turning and I woke up feeling SO good in my body!”
