These days, many of us aren’t living in close proximity to extended family, a handful of experienced mothers, and a network of acquaintances to guide through the transition into parenthood like previous generations. The village hasn’t gone anywhere, however. It just looks a little different!

Here you’ll find information and services to help guide you through childbirth preparation, encourage you as an active-decision maker, and build your confidence as a new parent.

Chances are you’ve heard the phrase, “It takes a village to raise a child,” 

an old adage that leaves many new parents asking, “What village?”

Thanks to advancing technologies, information and skilled experts are now more accessible than ever.

So, accessible in fact, it can be overwhelming!
From Pregnant to Parent is a community that was created to help connect the dots and guide new and expecting parents from conception to childbirth and through the postpartum period.

...there is no one right way to birth a baby or raise a child. The best choices are the ones that you feel the most comfortable with after receiving all of the information necessary to make an informed decision.

about me

A childbirth bootcamp for expecting parents who want to let go of the birth plan and feel prepared no matter how labor progresses.

This 5-day event is designed to help you understand the way labor progresses, build your coping strategy, develop your birth preferences, learn more about common complications, and preparing you for the immediate postpartum period. I’ll equip you with the evidence-based information and tools to navigate labor, ask meaningful questions, advocate for yourself, and make decisions with more confidence.

Here comes baby bootcamp

"I wasn't quite sure what to expect from a virtual class, but I am very happy with this format. Richelle was very knowledgeable, worked at a good pace, and, most importantly, was very good at communicating with all the attendees and ensuring questions were answered. I definitely recommend Richelle to other soon to be and new parents. I look forward to attending more classes and workshops with FP2P."

"She was extremely personable, professional and knowledgeable!! She was also unbiased when it came to birthing preferences and made us feel empowered as soon to be parents. After the class, my husband and I felt confident in HOW to ask questions, HOW to reach informed consent and HOW to have a satisfying labor and delivery experience!! We would 100% recommend Richelle to any expecting and/or postpartum parents!!"

"Having a background in childhood development as a special needs teacher myself, I was searching for a class that explained both what was scientifically going on and just realistically what to expect as my spouse and I go through this transition of welcoming our child into the world. Richelle was personal and down-to-earth, while still meeting my desire for a professional presentation of scientifically proven research."
