Confident, empowered birth starts here.

Birth doesn’t always go according to plan.

This resource will help you prepare for your birth, no matter what happens.

The Birth Principles Workbook is a soulful alternative to a birth plan.


 It’s the deepest preparation for birth you can do.


This workbook will help you to:

> Develop a birth plan or set of intentions that feels right to you, but also develop the resilience to navigate whatever transpires during your birth.

> Consider how you want to feel and be treated while you birth your baby into this world.

> Write a birth plan with SOUL – one that is meaningful and powerful.

What people are saying about the Birth Principles Workbook…

“I knew I needed something to help me process my first birth and move towards preparing for my 2nd birth, but I just didn’t know what. I thought about counselling, or a post-partum debrief, but couldn’t find the right person, and didn’t know where to start. Then I found your birth principles.  It took me in ALL the right directions. These were outstanding questions I deeply needed to ask myself, reflect on and articulate in the context of this new pregnancy. Thank you for sharing such a thoughtful, thought provoking and healing tool.”

“The Birth Principles Workbook was such a great resource for deep digging!  It’s the perfect reflective exercise for people who love to write – I wrote 15 pages answering the questions! I feel even more excited to meet my little guy, and plan to be in a state of hopeful expectation (one of the phrases I identified as a birth principle!) when I do! Thank you!

About Me, and the Birth Principles Story


Hi, I’m Jessie. I’m a mother of two beautiful children, and I’ve been supporting birth as a doula for over fifteen years.

The Birth Principles concept was born as I was preparing for the birth of my son, and wanted a different, more meaningful way to convey not just my preferences for my birth, but my deepest beliefs in my ability to birth. Since then, I’ve been using the Birth Principles Workbook with all my clients, and the workbook has been used by birthing people and prenatal educators from all over the world. I hope it’s helpful to you as you prepare for your birth.
