Discover How KBBirth Empowered Parents-to-Be Like You

Before doing this course I was fearful over giving birth. But I have to commend Lea Reichel for an incredible course. Not only is it full of rich information about the whole birthing process but Lea is a fantastic birthing coach, always being available for any questions you may have.
This course allows you to prepare at your own speed, rewatch videos for information and amazing content to download in order to be 100% prepared for the big day.
I definitely recommend this course!

Amazing course, super informative and clearly explained practical knowledge.
I had Lea as my Doula as well, and she was a calming presence in the room, guiding me by telling me what to expect at every stage as the stages were happening. This contributed to my having a a positive birth experience. I highly recommend her, both for the course and as a Doula.

I highly recommend Knowledge Based Birth to any couple going through pregnancy. The instructor is passionate, knowledgeable and so welcoming. She gave us a wide array of knowledge which helped us prepare for the birth, helped us during the labor process and afterwards as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with the course and how much it impacted us during this special time in our lives.

-Avi&Ilana, private course
I cannot thank you enough for the course and your amazing support. I managed to breath properly and remain calm with the tools we learned. My husband was an amazing birth partner, as was my mom. Your course was invaluable for the birth. My husband and I were both prepared and felt comfortable advocating for ourselves.

-D&E, private course
Lea’s course was extremely comprehensive and thorough, and really walked me through every aspect of the lead up to labour and labour itself! I found it very informative and useful to know what to expect, and the practical tools to help me through the journey were extremely valuable. The supporting material and documents were also very helpful to have. Lea was always available and responsive to any questions along the way which was much appreciated!

-Joella, online course
We really enjoyed working with Lea in the KBBirth Preparation course! Not only was she professional and prepared but we also appreciated all of the extra handouts, research, and guided meditations. The course itself covered so many topics and allowed us to discuss fears during birth, learn breathwork and helpful poses, and also covered very helpful topics like postpartum and medical interventions. We highly recommend working with Lea and appreciate her knowledge and attitude very much!
