Why this matters to us

What you experience during pregnancy should not be a mystery! After years of working with moms and becoming moms ourselves, it baffles us how much information is kept from women during and after their pregnancy.

Information is power. Women should know their options and be in control of their own birthing stories.

Birth + Baby is here to unveil the mystery behind pregnancy, delivery, and the first 3-months of motherhood. We want you to know what to expect from your own body, how to help yourself heal, and what to look for in your growing baby to make sure he/she is on track, too.

our testimonials

I wish I would have had @wellcorept’s birth+baby course before my first baby! This was so helpful in preparing me for delivery and postpartum for baby #2. There is so much you go into having your baby NOT knowing about your own body. Having the knowledge & tools provided by this guide are essential in navigating this process. Without this prep course, I had a lot of questions and concerns after my first delivery that I didn’t ask because I didn’t know to. Having this education would have made a huge impact in how I approached my postpartum healing. The baby milestones are so nice to have included in one place. Instead of trying to Google around and figure out what stages I need to be looking out for my newborn, I love that I have a guide/video course that I can trust. Reminders for which baby sitting devices/jumpers/etc that can cause disruption to my baby’s development right from the mouth of a Dr. takes a lot of the guesswork out of when to start using these things! Thank you so much, Dr. Peterson & Dr. Rawitch for providing a guide for all of us moms just trying to figure out this new chapter of life! 💖
