Real, laid back, no fluff childbirth education, birth, and new parent support.
Birthing Confidence provides childbirth and infant sleep education, infant sleep coaching, and postpartum support services to new parents. My goal is to help you enjoy every moment of your pregnancy, birth, and early months home as much as possible.
Birthing Confidence isn't here to tell you how to birth or raise your children. It is here because you deserve to have the skills, resources, and information needed to have the type of birth you desire and to be as prepared as possible for the journey ahead.
I'm Jamie, the owner of Birthing Confidence. I'm a mom of twin girls, a dog, two cats, and a wife.
I am a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE) and have training in birth doula work, infant sleep education and coaching, postpartum doula work, breastfeeding support, and belly binding. I have gone through both the Bradley Method and Lamaze childbirth classes. I am an active member of Lamaze International and am the President of the Lamaze DC Chapter.
I became a childbirth and infant sleep educator because I believe the process of becoming a parent is one of life's greatest journeys. And I know how hard it can be to set out on a new, scary, and life-altering journey without support, guidance, and reassurance. My personal mission is to support you through your pregnancy and the postpartum journey while arming you with evidence-based facts and options so you can feel confident with the choices you make along the way.
We used to have a village of parents who guided us through our worries, fears, and desires. We had women who showed us what to eat while pregnant to get rid of the nausea, how to move in a labor, and how to care for that little miracle you created so lovingly.
The village is gone but the need for one is probably greater than ever before.
We are here to be your village.
Do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions. I'd be honored to support you on one of life's most amazing and beautiful adventures.
