Register HERE to join the next real-time round of Smartt Birth or to move through at your convenience!
Do I have to watch each class at a designated time?
Heck no! On-demand, baby. If you want to track with me during one of our 6-week, real-time series, I recommend watching one class video a week and joining the live discussion circles every other Saturday. That said, you will have access to everything as soon as you register and are welcome to move through the course independently and 100% at your convenience.
Do I have to complete one class in order to gain access to the next one?
Nope. You will have everything at your fingertips the moment you register. By all means, go learn about placentas first if that’s your thing.
How long will I have access to the course?
For one full year, because we can’t forget the fourth trimester! There’s an entire class devoted to newborns, breastfeeding and the postpartum period, which you might want to revisit once baby’s here.
Is this course for my partner too?
Yes! 100%. Partners are encouraged to join the classes and live discussions with you.
Is this course only for people planning a natural birth?
Nope! This course is about you preparing for the birth of YOUR dreams … whatever that looks like.
This is my second baby. Will I still benefit from this course?
Absolutely. Each birth experience brings its own joys and challenges, so I highly recommend dedicating intentional preparation time and energy to every pregnancy and birth.
I’m late in pregnancy. Is there still time for me to take this course?
There’s no time like the present! Because the entire course is on-demand and totally available to you the moment you register, you could start preparing for the birth of your dreams RIGHT NOW. Even if you don’t get all the way through the postpartum info, you can come back to it once baby is here. And of course you can always reach out to me directly for targeted support.
What if I start the course and decide I don’t like it?
I offer a 30 day money back guarantee, no harm, no foul.
The Smartt Birth course and Susan’s guidance have proved to be such a gift and priceless educational tool for us. I’m having my first biological child after years of losses and infertility treatments. I married into a 3, 5 and 7 year old so missed the infant and beginning stages. I wasn’t sure what to expect but have been so thankful during each class to learn so much and with such ease. Susan has a special way of relaying information that makes it easy to understand and applicable. She was available for questions, always, and encouraged us to all reach out, no matter the situation. I didn’t know how much relief I would find in the education Susan provided. It’s given me so much peace of mind to know what I now know! Even my husband learned a lot!
Jacob and I planned a home birth and thought we had it all figured out. We loved the graphic interactive nature of your course and took extra care to pay attention to what applied to our cozy home birth. At our 39 week check up, our midwife discovered a terrifyingly textbook case of preeclampsia and a breech baby. Our plan took a complete 180 degree turn. Through shock and tear filled eyes, we used your “What to Pack” cheat sheet and rushed to the hospital. Your coverage of epidurals and hospital births was my only real preparation for what we were about to do and I’m so thankful for it! And believe it or not, many of my mantras still came in handy! 😊
Thank you so much for your birth course. It has been really helpful in understanding what is going to happen and how to prepare … Thank you again!
