The Rock Your Birth Academy is a big + bold invitation to a positive + powerful birth.
It is about YOU working through your fears, trusting in your amazing birthing body, and stepping into your power.
4 weeks. You. Me. And a desire to rock your birth.
I remember the moment clearly… I was about 6 months pregnant and feeling groovy. My growing belly announcing my impending birthing moment to the world. Whilst washing my hands in the toilets at work, a woman I had never met before looked at me, then kinda grimaced with the side of her mouth, and said ‘Are you getting scared yet?’
What the actual f*ck?
I remember smiling weakly and getting out of there as fast as I could. I wasn’t outraged at her question (although I would be later), I was triggered by it. She had hit a sore spot deep within me. That secret fear that I had been squishing down for months suddenly reared up and my mouth went dry.
Truth is that I was petrified
Completely terrified of how I was going to birth this baby.
* Would I actually be able to DO this?
* Would my body let me down?
* Was I going to be a complete birthing mess?
I had given birth before and it had NOT been my finest moment. A heavily-medicalised first birth had left me feeling disempowered, disconnected, and slightly defeated. So being the smart chick I am, I looked at what had worked well for me (not much), and looked at what was missing from my birth preparation (practically everything).
And in that moment, I took the biggest freaking breath of my life, and committed to my birth. I committed to working through this fear (and all the others) and giving it my best shot. And I mean my BEST shot. I wasn’t going to just rely on good luck from this point forward, I was going to step up and do EVERYTHING I could to achieve the birth I wanted.
But it wasn’t easy. We live in a world where we are taught that birth is to be feared. Where women are taught not to trust in their bodies, and instead, are taught that we will almost always need hospital assistance to birth. And it is total utter bullshit. Our bodies aren’t broken. Our wombs aren’t high-risk. Birth is NOT a medical fricking emergency.
There are of course, exceptions to this statement with REAL high-risk pregnancies and births. But every woman? Every birth? Noooo.
It’s total bollocks.
And so I got hardcore about birth. I was insatiable. I went CRAZY learning everything I could about birth. I became the freaking CEO of my birth. Positive affirmations? Mooing like a cow through contractions? Stalking women who had positive birth experiences to hear what they did differently? I threw every scientific, physical, and woo woo birthing insight I could at my birthing moment.
And you know what? I ROCKED it. My next birth experience was fucking STELLAR. I roared that baby out like a powerful + feminine + voluptuous + sexy + warrior-like Rockstar.
Not because I’m lucky, or have a higher pain threshold, or a magic vagina (although she does rock). I am a regular fucking amazing woman with a regular fucking amazing birthing body. Just like YOU. The difference is that I made the commitment to show up to this birth. With a few key decisions, and some focused actions, I took my birth journey from ignorant to informed, scared to sacred, painful to powerful. And you can too. Because the truth is…
YOU are the expert in your birth
You body knew how to conceive this baby. It knows how to nourish and grow this baby. And it sure as fuck knows how to get this baby out of your womb. So let’s talk about how we can get you in the best possible physical + mental + emotional + spiritual space to birth your babe. It is time to get some birth mindset MAGIC happening!

I’ve taken every piece of research, every interview I’ve ever done, every insight shared in the Rockstar Birth Magazine, and wrapped it up into an incredible 4-week program of connection + support + birthing goodness. That’s 4-weeks of YOU committing to your birthing moment. With me by your side.
