The GentleBirth app complements the workshop by providing you with daily affirmations, mindfulness & self-hypnosis tracks.

GentleBirth believes every birthing body is unique and so there is no “right” or “wrong” way to birth. Whether your birth is at home, in a hospital, medicated, or unmedicated it is the way it's meant to be. Our goal is to provide you with a mental toolbox filled with evidence-based information and coping skills so you can have a positive birth and parenthood experience.
