EMPOWERING BIRTH THROUGH EDUCATION FOR A NEW GENERATION
Many years ago, childbirth was considered an empowering act for women.
Over time however, with the introduction of a more modest approach to the human body, the narrative around birth changed.
By the time the 19th century rolled around, many women in the western world were opting for the "twilight sleep method," where they were given a cocktail of medicines to help them sleep through the extraction of their infants.
Once television became popularized, birthing scenes became more and more mocked - with women screaming at their husbands, bloody jello everywhere, and partners being absolutely mortified by their wives.
The women who were raised on these images are now becoming mothers and are left panicked about the process of childbirth: can I handle it? How much does it hurt? Is it disgusting?
This fear, mixed with misinformation, has led to high rates of medical procedures and emotional trauma for birthing families.
Birthly is here to tell you that everything will be okay. You can do this.
Through our various classes, we use science and data to educate young families on their options, removing the stigma surrounding childbirth.
This allows birth to revert to the natural, empowering process it was meant to be.
