Does this sound like you?

- I'm a partner who wants to support my pregnant loved one in labor, but I don't know where to start.
- I'm pregnant and I need reassurance that my partner will know how to help me through labor.
- We're short on time, and we need to feel more ready for birth as a couple.
- I know I need to start somewhere with childbirth preparation, but I'm not really sure where.

What if it were possible to...

- Learn massage techniques that your pregnant loved one will enjoy
- Feel more connected as a couple
- Know how to be helpful in labor
- Get ready for birth and have a romantic evening at the same time

I believe that birthing parents should feel loved and supported, and that birth partners deserve to feel confident and connected as they help their loved on through the birth process. I created The Hormone of Love to help couples begin their childbirth preparation in a fun, date night format.

Buy the Hormone of Love now to get instant access to three pre-planned date nights that will provide juicy dialogue, deep connection, and tools and skills for labor support.

Get the skills you need to support your partner through birth, and build on the connection you already have in three date nights.

  • Learn techniques for comforting touch in labor

Each lesson will focus on touch, dialogue, ambiance, or sweetness to give you a variety of ways to connect with one another and help fuel the hormone of love.
