Do you find yourself worrying about bleeding too much after your baby's birth?
Are you prepared for birth and ready to tackle labor - but find that fears of postpartum hemorrhage creep into the back of your mind?
Perhaps you've heard stories from other mamas who bled too much and needed medications - or more - to stop the bleeding.
If so, you're definitely not alone. I've been working with expectant moms for over a decade and I hear this fear come up over, and over, and over again. It's also part of my story...
...after my first baby's beautiful home birth, I kept bleeding - so much so that my midwife decided to use medications to control things. She got things under control, but it took time to recover from the birth...
...a long time.
I went into my second baby's birth with a lot of fear about bleeding, even making sure that my midwife had picked up the medications from the back-up doctor in plenty of time before my due date!
My midwife assured me that I had done things differently during this pregnancy, and that I was ready and prepared to have an uncomplicated birth. That birth was GREAT, and encouraged me - and left me wanting to understand more about what moms can do.
Fast forward a few years and as a student midwife and childbirth educator, I dove into this topic for a detailed research project and was shocked by just how much there was to learn about postpartum hemorrhage...
...and I was stunned by just how much you can do to prevent it.
The 3-Step Postpartum Hemorrhage Prevention Plan
I discovered that preventing postpartum hemorrhage is a 3-stage process - with special steps for each of those stages. The first stage is during pregnancy, and the second two are part of your birthing time:
- Steps taken from about 20 weeks of pregnancy until labor begins
- Steps taken from the beginning of labor until baby is born
- Steps taken after your baby is born
Each of these steps plays a part in preventing postpartum hemorrhage.
The first step, during pregnancy, is perhaps the most crucial to a safe birth and feeling healthy and vibrant after the birth...
...and fortunately, it's the longest stage and the one you have the most control over. Plus, it's really simple once you know what to do!
But the stages during and after baby's birth are also important, and the more you know, the more you can advocate for a safe, smooth birth experience and the protective procedures that keep you safe after you push your baby out.
Bringing together these steps isn't hard - in fact, it's pretty easy once you know what to do...
...and it dramatically reduces the risk of postpartum hemorrhage and helps you recover quickly and easily from baby's birth. That's why I've created...
The Smart Mama's Guide to Preventing Postpartum Hemorrhage
You're probably not hearing much about how to prevent bleeding from your doctor - or your pregnancy books - but like I shared above, it's actually pretty simple. In fact, these steps go a long to preventing almost all pregnancy and childbirth complications.
That's why I've put together a complete class on preventing postpartum hemorrhage, and having a quick recovery that leaves you feeling strong and ready to tackle the adventure of life with your newborn baby.
In this innovative class you'll discover:

We'll dig deep into the three stages and I'll give you a simple, actionable plan that will make these things routine and effective.
Normally I charge $150 for an hour consult, but since this is an open class, I planned to price it at my normal rate of $67... then I thought that this is a really big deal - women are being told that there's nothing they can do to prevent postpartum hemorrhage - or they're being told that drugs will handle it all and that every procedure is safe with no side effects... ALL mamas-to-be need this simple, practical information, so I'm pricing at just
