Classes and Online Programs


Created with my west-coast bestie, Alicia Fishbein (expert doula-advocate), Intentional Birth is — we sincerely believe — the most comprehensive childbirth course available online for women preparing for physiologic birth. We honestly address the challenges AND the joy of pregnancy and birth, with all their changes and choices. If there is a way to feel ready to welcome your baby (in body, in mind, in environment and team), I believe this is it.

    Babies have been born in times of flood, famine, war, earthquake, and political exile. And even now, in the midst of a global pandemic, they keep on coming! It’s likely that COVID-19 has created change in your birth plans: the sister, mom, best friend, or doula you were relying on to support you during birth can no longer be with you. Now it’s just you and your partner traveling this road. But don’t panic, pivot! We’ll show you how.

    Meredith and Alicia believe that this time calls for every couple to learn how to doula themselves. So, they’ve taken everything they’ve learned from supporting hundreds of births, and distilled it into a super simple essential guide. They’ll show you start to finish how to birth confidently, comfortably, and safely.  

    They’ve combined their wide experience working with hundreds of couples, their passion for birth, plus a little pixie dust, to create an accessible toolset for your upcoming birth.

    Be your own damn doula and make your birth-day the best day of your life!
