Childbirth Educator, Birth & Postpartum Doula, Lactation Counselor since 2013
"“I have absorbed and applied every word of Staci's! I feel I have a new, refreshed perspective on life - I have been practicing relaxation techniques, I feel centered, I've gained an awareness of my self-talk, and I have begun prioritizing my inner voice to improve the quality of my life! It was an amazing class to grow and rise up to the transition into parenthood. I actually had intense claustrophobia going into childbirth, and a fear around all of the unknowns of birth. The class broke down facts around birth, our anatomy in an empowering way - in a way that allowed me to understand that I am in control of labor because I can control my breath, my thoughts and that birth is ordinary, that I can trust my body knows how to birth my baby! Taking it one contraction at a time.” "
Connected Childbirth is the ONLY on-line program of its kind.
1. We Are Inclusive: We trust your choices! This means that regardless of HOW you want to birth; medicated, unmedicated, cesarean, etc. You are welcome here. Connected Childbirth will give YOU the tools to figure it out for yourself. There is no judgement here. Medication is just a tool, we will discuss numerous tools to add to your birth tool box. Only you can decide what tools you actually use in labor!
2. Non-Agenda Based: You can't fail in birth! We trust that YOU know what is best for your body! No two people are the same and no two births are the same. This is a safe place to explore and understand this moment on your terms. We do not favor one way to birth as other "methods" prescribe. This class is about options. When you understand your options you will be more equipped to attune to your individual needs.
3. Self-Care Focused: No two people or births are the same. Our main focus and goal is to offer you the tools to understand how important it is that you invest in yourself. We trust that YOU are the only one that can make decisions about your body, baby and birth. We will give you the information to ensure you feel confident in your choices without judgment or agenda. Birth is NOT one size fits all and ALL birth is brave.
4. Partner Based: When we do this together we can create a more meaningful and powerful experience! We believe that the more support you have in this moment the better experience you will have!! Connected Childbirth is about creating connection to this moment as a family, whether that is your spouse, partner, mother, sister, or friend; birthing is a powerful moment for all involved and we will give them the tools to support you best and to show up in their fullest capacity.
You can't fail in birth; however, your childbirth class can fail you! Connected Childbirth will offer you the skills to embrace this moment and beyond. These dynamic tools will last a lifetime and can be utilized in the face of any challenge. Our course is designed to help you create resilience, peace of mind and unwavering strength.

Staci Berrey founded Labor of Love Birth & Postpartum in Orange County, Ca, in 2013. She is a childbirth educator, birth and postpartum doula, and a lactation counselor.
Over the last 8 years, they have served 1000's of families through childbirth education and supported over 500 families in birth.
Labor of Love was born out of the desire to change the cultural birth narrative for ALL birthing families.
Our goal is liberate the inner barriers that hold us back from feeling, experiencing and achieving a fulfilling birth experience regardless of HOW we birth.
Birth is NOT one size fits all!
"Connected Childbirth course was everything we didn't know we needed for this birthing journey. Staci's style, patience, caring demeanor and most importantly knowledge was spot on. I had to share our experience from a former non-believer. My wife and I agreed with "why didn't we do this the first time around!!!" Well, you sometimes just don't know what you don't know."
"As a first time mom, I was nervous and had anxiety around giving birth so my husband and I joined Connected Childbirth.
The class was wonderful and really helped me understand what I could expect during labor, birth and postpartum, what options were available to me in the hospital, techniques for dealing with pain, and what to do after the baby arrives.
Not only that, they really helped me understand that birth is a natural process, it is something my body was made to do!
The information helped me feel empowered during my birth experience and I really think played a large part in me being mentally prepared to give birth."
"My husband and I took Labor of Love's Connected Childbirth class and her Breastfeeding Class a few months back. If offered both of us such peace of mind. We are so very grateful that we found this class. Staci was professional but personable and seriously a wealth of knowledge. I have since recommended this class to all our friends. It is worth every penny, and very informative without putting fear into childbirth. Staci really put our minds at ease about how natural of a process it is and how our bodies are made to do have babies. Thank you!"
Studies show those that take childbirth classes gain:
"I felt so prepared leading up to labor AND also postpartum care and breastfeeding. This class offers it all AND made me excited for my birth experience."
"Thank goodness we took this class. The mindset was the biggest part for me. I kept hearing Staci's encouragement the entire time. It made a HUGE difference in my birth experience."
"As a husband, I was nervous about what to expect but Staci gave me all the skills and knowledge to help, I felt so confident supporting my wife which made me feel so good."
"This class went beyond the physical aspects of birth (which are covered well) but also focused on the emotional side of birth and parenthood, which was immensely beneficial."
"I went into birth feeling confident and informed, and my husband credits these classes for making him such a strong coach! I had the birth I wanted cause of Connected Childbirth."

Yes! Even if you want medication you should still prepare for this moment. AND, keep in mind, you will be in labor way before you CAN get medication. In addition, this class is about personal care, informed consent, birth prep, postpartum care and so much more!
Childbirth is one of the single most incredible events of your life. Most people spend more time researching the sofa they want to buy verses one of the most important days of their lives. Connected Childbirth is about self improvement, self empowerment and actualization. Who doesn't need that!
YES! This is the number one reason we made Connected Childbirth as we have done ourselves wrong to fear this moment. We need to take back our power and invest in our strength. This moment IS big and the most amazing changes that come with childbirth is the opportunity to grow, to rise, to see ourselves in a new light. To walk through our fears and come out stronger than ever before!
YES! Birth is not one size fits all! We are well aware of this and have full confidence that you know yourself best, and you will make the best decisions for yourself.
We will give you all the tools to have the experience that is BEST for you. This class is about you finding the confidence to achieve the birth you feel is right, and building your tools to make that birth happen!

This is honest and perfectly fine, as it is impossible to make decisions for yourself in a situation you have never been in before! You do not need to make these decisions right now.
Connected Childbirth will help as we explore your skills for stress and challenging, add upon them, and help you understand what to expect. All this work will give you the tools to take the best care of yourself in the moment.
First and foremost, Connected Childbirth is NOT a method! This is a class that is centered around self awareness and connection. It is about you investing in yourself and adding the tools needed to your own birth experience so that you have the tools to navigate your needs. There isn't just one way to birth - there is only your way!
We have decided to drip Connected Childbirth throughout a 4 week period because it is based upon the successful in-person class Staci has been teaching for many years. We believe that learning is a process and we want to give you time to invest in the materials. Every week you will have new content to watch, review and participate in. The more time you have to ingest the information the better prepared you will be when your labor begins.
Yes, while you already know how to breath, we will explore positive ways to manage labor. One of those ways is the use of your breath and we address how powerful a tool your breath can be. There are several breathing exercises to work through in the class.
While this is a partner based class there have been plenty of people that took this class on their own. Regardless if you have a partner or not that will participate, Connected Childbirth is about your journey and supporting your needs as best as possible in this moment. You will receive plenty of information to help navigate your experience.
Transparency is a core value of Labor of Love and we put a lot of effort into an accurate representation of the course experience and we are happy to answer your questions in advance. Because our products are digital goods that are accessible once the course begins we do not offer refunds. Thank you for understanding.
The perfect time to enroll is anytime between 22 - 36 weeks pregnant. You will have access to the course for 1 full year. So you can go through the materials on your own terms. This also means that you will have plenty of time to go back and review the materials to take advantage of all the information.
We pride ourselves on cutting through the noise. There is so much information that comes at you when expecting. We feel that one of the biggest questions that isn't getting answered is, "What is right for you?"
Connected Childbirth is about learning about yourself and doing a deep dive into what this moment means for you (no one else). It isn't about how your friend birthed or your mother, it isn't about a political statement or spreading an agenda. It is about YOU and YOUR journey. What is right for you?
We want to put all the information in your hands to have a powerful, loving and joyous experience, even if it is hard.
We want YOU to decide what is right for you because we trust that you know what is best. This class will place all the information into your hands so that you feel confident about your path.
We understand the importance of childbirth preparation and the investment. We never want finances to be the reason NOT to prepare. Currently, we offer partial and full scholarships depending on need. Please email us at [email protected] to apply.
