The days of the one-size-fits-all birth are done. Run by mothers and experienced doulas, Birth Day Presence hand-selects the best ideas and techniques from a range of practices to provide smart, non-judgmental childbirth education, doula, and lactation-support services. That’s why more than 10,000 New Yorkers have trusted us to help them prepare for birth, breastfeeding, and beyond.
This is our first childbirth and we came in with a lot of unknowns and uncertainties. But (thankfully) we found that most of these were based on TV. Through this class, Meghan provided a kind of road-map that showed us where the big turns are, what we need to watch out for, and what to do if we get lost. It was surprising to learn there are things we can actually do to help navigate through potentially bumpy terrain. And it made us feel more confident and capable of handling what had seemed like a daunting undertaking. Although we still have work to do (like figuring out what car-seat and stroller), we feel much more prepared about the big day ahead.

I can't believe we almost didn't come! This experience was amazing and I recommend to every pregnant woman and their partner. My husband and I left with so much information that we couldn't believe how clueless we were before, and we thought we were well read on child birth. Megan was amazing. We are in awe of her. She didn't push an agenda but gave us all the information so that we could make our own decision. She also informed us of our rights in the hospital so that we don't have to be pushed into doing anything we aren't comfortable with. If you are pregnant, you MUST attend this class.
Feeling prepared! My husband and I attended the weekend intensive seminar with Meghan and it was fantastic. I was worried it would be difficult to cram in so much information in just two days, but the way Meghan broke up the class between video/Q and A/ group discussion and practice exercises made everything really easy to absorb and follow along without ever feeling tedious. I had done a lot of reading before class but my husband basically just knew what pop culture teaches us about birth, and after this class he is so excited to have a better understanding of what could take place, and we both feel MUCH more confident about our birth plan and what to expect. Great class- definitely take it!
Take this class! You guys. Meghan is the best and I'm so so so happy that we took this weekend long intensive class with her. I had been reading articles for months but by husband wasn't as well-versed, and we both were SO glad that we learned all of the things that can happen during birth, all of our options, and how/when to advocate for what we wanted. We met some other great parents in the class as well and emerged feeling ready for baby. HIGHLY recommend.
