Childbirth education 

Digital childbirth education solutions designed to equip you to confidently
navigate pregnancy, birth and parenthood.






Your family is growing, but what you've heard about pregnancy and  birth thus far has left you with questions and you're looking for answers. 

You know there's a lot to learn and you're eager to learn it all.  Still, you find yourselves unsure of your next steps.

Hey mom + dad, I see you...



Since your parenting journey began, you’ve heard all sorts of pregnancy and birth stories... many of which have  been less helpful. 

You've felt fear and anxiety trying to creep in, and you're unsure how to navigate all of the unknowns. But you want a different story. 

You want a different experience




You CAN experience peace, eager anticipation, and joy throughout your pregnancy and birth. And for that matter, you can actually learn to use this time to cultivate a vision for the family life you’ve always dreamed of. 

You want to feel prepared, and I can help. 

Your story can be different




I believe traditional childbirth education classes leave a whole lot to be desired.

That's why I created Birthing Bravely Academy, a digital course solution designed to help you feel prepared, and to empower you to make the right decisions for your family. Ready to dive in?

I'm an educator,  connector and major  birth physiology geek. I love helping couples navigate their growing families and have a serious affinity for houseplants and hipster coffee shops. 

Birth is vulnerable. I get that. I've designed Created For to be a one-stop shop for all things family growth and I know I can help you feel confident and empowered in all that's ahead. Let's dive in!

I'm Sam & I'm glad you're here.

Cocokind. Warby Parker. Target.

I remember the words to almost every song from the 90's-2000's. Trust me, this is awkward. 

Both. All. Every day. Any day.
