BIRTH WISDOM PROGRAM

we know this to be true : Birth is unpredictable.

And yet too often we focus just on information when preparing for birth. While feeling informed is important, true preparation for the unknown of birth requires something more.

I created the Birth Wisdom program as a unique holistic approach to childbirth education that provides not only key knowledge and tools, but also increases your self-esteem and self-confidence. My wish? For you to have a healthy, meaningful birth experience.

I want to get crucial information into your hands because this birth will impact YOUR LIFE the most… NOT your doctors.

WHY BIRTH WISDOM?

  • Are you feeling anxious and afraid when it comes to how you're going to cope with contractions? Want to know the best laboring positions to encourage and increase your chances for a vaginal birth?
  • Looking for tips on laboring positions and hands-on comfort measures for pain relief? Feeling like your partner/support person has a bit more to learn in how to best support you?
  • Not sure how to navigate the medical world & make informed choices that align with your values? Feeling like you have a ton of questions to ask your care provider, but freeze at every appointment?
  • Feeling unprepared for what to expect when it comes to breastfeeding or how to efficiently care for your newborn and yourself in those first few weeks at home?
  • If this resonates with you, I've got your back! Together, we can strategically create your BIRTH MASTERPLAN. This plan will serve you over and over ... no matter how your birth unfolds.
How does that sound?

RAVE REVIEWS:

Hey there... I'm Hillery

certified doula and childbirth strategist.

Hillery Lyen Doula

I help anxious parents-to-be create childbirth strategies through guidance + support to build confidence in their body, trust their innate ability to give birth and make informed decisions that align with their values about pregnancy, birth, and parenting.

What I enjoy most about my role as a childbirth mentor and doula is helping 1st time pregnant parents turn “ON” their courageous power switch to trust their body and OWN their birth every step of the way! I also love bringing out my authentic self and building relationships into unforgettable friendships. My realness sets me apart. You will find I am super down to earth, funny, and easy to talk to.

"The potential for positive impact (in birth) is great, but it takes planning, advance preparation, and safe, respectful nurturing. I'd urge women to take their upcoming childbirth very seriously. It matters too much to turn the experience of a lifetime over to someone else."

Penny Simkin, Childbirth educator

FAQ:

RAVE REVIEWS:

you've heard the stories... Birth doesn't always happen how we wish it would.

It is vital to understand that in the US and the developed world, the medical system for childbirth in a hospital setting is very controlled and complex, impacting millions of families every year.

FACTS:

  • In the US 1 in 4 women have their labor induced.
  • The US C-section rate is about 1.3 million children each year.
  • The US is the only country in the developed world with an exceptionally high and rising maternal mortality rate, even higher for low income women of color.
  • Birth trauma is estimated to occur in 33% to 45% of all births in the US and Australia.
  • 1 in 6 moms and 1 in 10 dads suffer from postpartum depression.

These statistics are shocking, I know. This information is not meant to scare you, but to prepare you. You have to be prepared to navigate our present medical model of childbirth and learn how to speak up for yourself to encourage better birth outcomes for your baby and generations to come.

My goal is to get crucial information into your hands so you can ask the right questions & advocate for yourself because this birth will impact your life the most… not your doctors. I want to help you avoid the emotional and financial cost of unnecessary interventions and medical procedures by knowing how to navigate our complex medical system.
