All women deserve for their voice to be heard and sometimes we need help knowing how to speak up. That's what this course is about - it's a way for you, as a birthing woman, to build your confidence and find your voice with the HER ACT strategy. You cannot control what will happen when it comes to birth, YBB will give you the blueprint for being prepared for the hospital, for the intervention, for the communication and, having practised for the unknown.
In turn, we hope you can own and feel at peace with your birth experience however that may be.
