If only you could skip to the good part…
You can’t wait to meet your baby, but holy moly.
As soon as word gets out you’re pregnant, everyone starts offering up their crazy birth stories and their long lists of “should dos,” “have tos,” and “I would nevers,” and before you know it, it can feel like you’re planning for Armageddon rather than childbirth.
You deserve facts—not frenzy.
crave this kind of talk.
Firstly, let me just say how invaluable your classes were. There are so many resources out there but your format was so in-depth, fun, and informative. I loved being able to know exactly what was happening with my body as I gave birth.
I would have been much more fearful going through it if it weren’t for your class. I felt very calm and understood what was happening each step of the way.
Alice’s course is thorough while being fun and easy to follow. I love how each class had a specific topic followed with a tool to support your birth experience. Taking this class helped me feel more confident and less fearful.
I am so grateful for Alice and all that she has to offer. I can honestly say she felt like my personal doula despite being states away! Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for offering your Birth Toolbox class. We learned so much and were able to put that knowledge to use when the big day came!
We appreciate your attitude towards intervention, because of how it’s not shameful or frowned upon to use it, it’s just another tool.
We can’t express how thankful we are to you for your class. I know for me personally as a support person, I feel like I would’ve been next to useless without your teachings. Petra said that I ended up being really helpful to her as we went through it all, and I don’t think she was just trying to make me feel good.
We will be (and already have) suggesting your class to any pregnant couples we know!

Childbirth education is pointless if you can’t recall it, so:
Each module is designed to make your learning stick.
Get the facts.
We’ll always start by learning something about birth—what to expect from your body, what role your baby is playing, and how this piece of the puzzle fits with all the others.
Get some practice.
This is my favorite part! You’ll always, always walk away with practical coping strategies to pull out of your toolbox for all phases (before, during, and after) of the birthing process.
Lock in your learning with straight talk.
At the end of each session, I cover common questions. But, what if you have more? Anytime you need me, just click the “Ask Alice” button at the bottom of the screen and I’ll respond within two business days!
It’s an honor to be part of your journey.
Thank you for these classes! As a first time mom, I had no idea what to expect going forward; much less how to prepare for giving birth. I have learned so much from you and am very grateful.
I just wanted to thank you for the course and videos that you put on. Our baby girl was born last week, and the experience was a lot easier to keep calm and managed through because of all the information we got from you.
We used so many techniques we learned, and my husband especially was well prepared to assist me. We were able to navigate the interventions with a great knowledge and question what was best.
“Having taken a number of classes over the course of my pregnancies, Birth Toolbox was by far my favorite. Alice’s use of examples and visuals throughout the class made things super interesting and easy to understand. Because she addresses all types of birth – and even having been through a birth already myself – I learned new things and felt prepared for whatever was to come. This is the class I now recommend to all of my friends.”

We’ve been watching together every evening and learning a lot! Thanks for the very helpful content and relaxed style

I have learned so many skills that I applied through my labour and delivery. It was like you were there with me coaching me through it!
From me to you –
Here’s my favorite freebie: 10 Recommendations for Your Hospital Bag
I bet you are wondering…
How Long Do I Have Access To the Course?
How does 10 months sound? After enrolling, you have 10 months of 24/7 access to the course. Even the longest pregnancies won’t last this long!
When does the course start and finish?
It is a completely self-paced online course—you decide when you start and when you finish! Lots of parents work through it over the course of 2-4 weeks.
What if I'm unhappy with the course?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us within the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
We are planning a c-section birth. Will this course help me?
Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.
My hospital is offering a free course. Should I take it too?
Sure! If you want. But, you don’t have to. This course is meant to work with busy schedules and to be completed in the privacy of your own home. (I know how awkward it can feel to try coping strategies in front of strangers!)
There is a lot of free content on the internet. Should I really pay for this?
Too much content is overwhelming and, frankly, it’s hard to know if the source is experienced and trustworthy. Even I have tons of free videos on YouTube, but you can get lost in them if they’re not watched in a specific order with supporting written materials.
How does it work to have a personal birth consultant?
The birth consultation is completely personalized based on your needs. Services can include private childbirth education, birth planning and even on-call virtual doula support when you are in labor.
Is the Birth Toolbox course a Lamaze class?
Any class taught by a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (like me) is considered to be a Lamaze class. This class is for anyone planning to give birth. You do not need to want a natural or unmedicated birth in order to love this class.
Bottom line? Angst about childbirth doesn’t have to get in the way your excitement.
You were made for this.
We prepare you for one of the most important days of your life with easy to understand, affordable and straight forward childbirth education. This is the Lamaze class you've been hoping for.
