You don't want to miss these
Sam embodies what it means to Birth Bravely. We can believe for greater things than what we are normally taught when it comes to the process of carrying a child and welcoming it into the world. She empowers, equips and encourages women to take hold of all that is available to us both physically and spiritually in order to have an unforgettable birthing experience. She is worth her weight in gold and I couldn't recommend her services highly enough to anyone who may be considering it!

Birth is about...
building a family
Birth is about
Birth has been a big part of my world for over 15 years. I started my career as a RN in obstetrics and emergency medicine, where I realized my heart was drawn to the midwifery model of care. I dove in head-first, attending births in homes, hospitals and birth centers alongside phenomenal midwives.
It wasn’t long before I realized my favorite moments were spent teaching families and empowering them for what’s ahead. I took the knowledge I gained through work as a Certified Doula + Childbirth Educator, OB nurse, and birth assistant, and began educating birth workers all over the nation.
From instructing future midwives in anatomy & physiology to teaching clinical skills & evidence based practices, I’ve spent the better part of a decade training future birth workers all over the world, educating families and attending birth in a variety of capacities.
I believe your childbirth education class should do more than prepare you for the possibility of interventions. There are certainly details you need to learn, and if you jump in with me in Birthing Bravely Academy, you will learn them all. But holistic birth education is more than that.
What I really want you to get out of this class is the confidence that you’re ready to make the decisions that are right for your family.
I want you to feel prepared heading into your birth experience, and for the many decisions and transitions you’ll face in your life with a new baby. That’s why I created Birthing Bravely Academy. Birth is not just about a day; it’s about building family. Join me and let’s build yours.

With this being my fourth time around the natural-home-birth block, I knew what I was getting into, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t need support, shifts in perspective or reminders about why I’m doing things the way I am. Sam is so good at listening to her clients and helping them verbalize or even realize for the first time what they want to experience during their pregnancy-birth journey. She’s amazing at drawing out what is within.
In the past I felt a lot of concern, fear and misunderstanding from others about the way I chose to give birth. Sam helped us feel like we had someone who was both encouraging and knowledgeable in our corner. She’s sunshine for the soul.

In a word: YES! You know I’m a HUGE believer in doulas and am thrilled you’ve got one on board. However, unless you purchased an additional childbirth education program from your doula, there will be tons of information she will not be able to provide given the time you have together.
By signing up for Birthing Bravely Academy, you ensure you have the information you need to get the most out of your relationship with your doula. Plus, you’ve got extra built-in support!
Absolutely! Since some of our Beta tier options require social posting, we would ask that you select our Beta Testers Crew tier.
In our experience, this is a much appreciated and well received gift from expecting parents!
Absolutely! If you decide you would like to sign up for private coaching with Sam, you will receive a 25% discount on coaching packages.
The full course contains seven modules, which take around an hour to complete each (including worksheets) for a total of about seven hours of content.
That may sound like a lot but the course is broken down into easy-to-digest lessons with visual support along the way. You are welcome to move through it at your own pace and re-watch or skip lessons as needed.
This course does not follow a specific breathing & birthing technique (like Lamaze or The Bradley Method). However, it is designed to be partner and family inclusive and focused on the holistic event of bringing a baby into the world, not just the day of birth.
In my (limited) experience of birth classes available at the hospital, I’ve found many focus heavily on medications, interventions and logistics. While it is important that you understand all of these details (and they are included in BBA), I believe what you focus your attention on grows. I want you to learn much more about how your body was designed to function in birth and what you’re capable of than where you should plan to park at your birth location! :)
This course can be accessed from any device (including your phone using the Kajabi app) and is wildly intuitive and straightforward. I don’t think you’ll have any trouble but of course, if you need support of any kind, my team and I will be standing by to help.
1. Ease of use
2. Raving recommendations from course takers and creators alike.
I hand-selected my course hosting platform (Kajabi) for two reasons:
I understand couples have varying degrees of sensitivity to birth imagery so I designed this program to include everything you need, but without the shock and awe. Birth photos and videos are linked externally and will not pop up on a slide when you’re not expecting it. You will have access to some incredible videos and photos, but in a specific location you can choose to access or not.
Sam saw us through from start to finish - her birth education classes made us feel secure and empowered as people about to become parents (and a woman about to go through labor), and her graciousness in answering our questions always made us feel understood and listened to. She made my husband feel confident and competent as my birth partner. Her teaching was so practical and made us feel much more prepared, but it also instilled confidence in both of us that we could stay connected to each other and to Jesus throughout the process of labor.
