A COMMUNITY FOR GROWING FAMILIES
Both the act of having a baby and the permanent state of having a baby come with distinct challenges.
Birthsmarter is an UNBIASED, INCLUSIVE, AND AWARD-WINNING PLATFORM PROVIDING
practical wisdom + guidance
Our classes are relevant for folks giving birth in hospitals, birth centers, or at home, and for those having an unmedicated birth, a medicated birth or a cesarean birth.
Our parenting classes and postpartum support groups offer a combination of practical tips and a novel framework for filtering out the noise from the parenting industrial complex.
When our founder, Ashley Brichter, gave birth for the first time in 2014, she had experience with hundreds of families as a doula and birth educator. She already knew everything traditional birth classes were teaching. She felt like she'd done everything right. When, like so many, her birth did not “go as planned,” Ashley went back to the drawing board. She questioned everything she learned becoming a doula, a childbirth educator, and a parent herself.
