Conscious childbirth online
The medical industry currently approaches human birth out of fear and a lack of trust in our body's ability to birth the babies we grow. In my Conscious Childbirth course online, we do not ignore the greater systemic issues that lead so many people to deliver in the hospital at the mercy of a care provider that in most cases they’ve never met until the day of their child’s birth. In fact, we use this FACT as fuel to prepare ourselves as much as possible. This class was designed to remind ourselves of our strength, power, and resilience as birthing people in a world that has lost it’s trust in our bodies. Most of my clients simply cannot afford an out-of-hospital birth or don’t have access to insurance plans that can cover or reimburse for an out-of-hospital birth, or do not have the support of their loved ones due to fear-based practices and stories they’ve heard throughout their lives. For many of my clients, this course helps them achieve an empowered birth experience and becomes the best way for them to change the narrative and break this cycle of traumatic birth in their families.
I am building a community of conscious folks who are not willing to accept the current state of birth in hospitals, and are willing to demand to be treated fairly, and be considered active participants in decision-making about their bodies and their babies throughout their pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum/breastfeeding process.
This starts with being informed and raising our consciousness. We must be grounded in order to be our own greatest advocates. This is also essential to cultivating a healthy sense of self as a parent. Not only are we prepping to birth a child, but when we give birth, we are reborn as well.

"It's been such a pleasure meeting Danellia, and becoming educated by her during my first pregnancy was eye-opening. Hers was the very first childbirth class I ever attended and it was very educational, yet not overwhelming. I'm so glad we got the chance to meet as she is professional and passionate about her job. Would definitely use her services again and hopefully, for my second pregnancy, have her be my doula."
"Danellia was our natural birth educator and I highly recommend her class. For those of you worried about cost, you get a lot of bang for your buck-- she really is providing you 3 services for the price of 1.
She is super knowledgeable and passionate. Her descriptions of the stages of birth gave me a clear roadmap of what to anticipate. She made abstract and complex concepts easy to understand.
Compared to 3 free Kaiser classes, this HANDS DOWN was more valuable. Those classes were redundant, with little substantive info. One of her 10 min videos on lactation clearly presented info that took more than 2-hours in the Kaiser lactation course. (Read the KP workbook available online to get the essence of the info.)
Her real world experience with local hospitals let us get into the nitty gritty and ask real specific questions.
I used some of her pain management technique (with my doula and partner), an adaptation of her breathing technique, and her ice exercise in the labor room and for the surges (contractions) before hand.
In summary, just do it. Sign up for her class. Birth and postpartum is challenging, especially these days. So get all the support you can get!"

“Thanks so much for your medicine.
We hella benefitted and learned SOOOO
much from your online course- I’m actually glad
I did that vs in-person. I like knowing that I can
go back to the info whenever I want to review
a concept I didn’t quite absorb-
or the songs, etc. for real tho, your course
was my first concrete stepping stone
to feeling informed and grounded in my first pregnancy.
So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Appreciate all the work and thought you put into it.”
