Our class is on-demand. You will have access to all videos and resources for a full year from purchase. See all that is included.

Why on-demand? Because adult's brains are similar to a muscle, they need alternating periods of rest and recovery to synthesize new ideas and concepts. When learners receive information in short chunks, rest, reflect, then return is how adults learn best.

...The format/structure of the class is accessible and straightforward, and the videos are engaging and informative. You can tell the Nurtured Nest team has put a lot of thought and care into creating the content for the class. Very grateful I took the time to complete this class before giving birth - it made a huge difference in my childbirth + postpartum experience!

Before watching their Childbirth + Postpartum class, I felt VERY underprepared and a little terrified of labor and delivery. After finishing the course, I feel way more confident and now have an arsenal of tools to help with labor and delivery.

...even though I'm not a new mom (currently pregnant with our 2nd child), I still learned lot of useful information that I didn't know before! Being a person that often googles information, there was also comfort in knowing that the info I got from the classes came from professionals that specialize in the topics covered. I love the vision and inspiration behind this organization, and that the classes are created by the experts...
Kathryn and her whole team are so incredible! Excellent communication, such good resources and high quality content. My family has truly benefited from this program. Thank you!
