Not feeling confident about birth {yet} ?

Feeling like you have a lot to get prepped before baby? I get it! As a labor nurse {and mom to 3}, I am guessing you:

  • Are trying to find a class to take (let alone take together) just seems 400 times harder than it used to be.
  • There is so much to focus on, you're not sure what's important and what you can let go of.
  • Your doctor visits are like a whirlwind and you always forget to find out about things you need to know?
  • Your partner is excited, but not as engaged as you'd prefer?  You want a partner, not just a cheerleader.

What do student say about the course?


"I had so many questions about what to expect throughout the L&D process as well as postpartum and Hilary's course relieved all the anxiety that I was feeling in getting prepared for this! SO many helpful resources and tidbits!!!!"

Mercedes // Teacher

"We loved the Pulling Curls course! Hilary is informative, candid and genuine. She has a gift as a nurse and shares her knowledge and expertise with us as parents to-be. My husband and I equally enjoyed the content and presentation."

Amy // Former Student

"Hilary's class was great! We went through a few classes (nervous first-time parents) and hers was hands-down the best. Her style was straight-forward and direct, but still funny and definitely engaging. I would (and will!) highly recommend!"

What Does the Class Cover?

The Online Prenatal Class For Couples is Split into Three Topics

woman getting ready for labor

#1 Before Labor

Wondering why your doctor ordered a certain test, or what exactly you should be worried about (because everything seems a bit weird).  This topic talks ALL about that.

  • Third trimester testing -- so you can know what your doctor is looking for.
  • When to go to the hospital -- be it labor or something else, when should you go in?
  • Signs of Labor - Learn how to take the clues from your body that labor is coming (becuase it's not just your uterus).

Wondering when to go to the hospital?  There is an easy formula that will get you there on time, but not too early!

#2 Labor

The labor room seems so "mysterious" but it doesn't have to be that way.  Experience is key and you will be prepared in all these areas: 

  • Admissions Process - so you're not caught off guard in the very beginning.
  • Induction (the how's and why's) - So you can make good choices for your family.
  • How to say no without feeling awkward (how to drive your own delivery)
  • What exactly will happen at delivery - Enjoy that baby instead of being worried what everyone is doing!
  • Pain Management Options - We'll go over IV medicine, Nitrous and Epidurals at great length so you're prepared to get what you need.
  • Common Complications - Small complications are very normal in L&D.  You'll know exactly what the nurse is doing and why.
  • Cesarean Section Info - Instead of nagging worry, you'll know what to expect if you end-up going this route (we go through the whole procedure start to finish)

With these tips you'll no longer wonder when to get the epidural.  You'll be a pro.

#3 After-Delivery

If the labor room is a mystery, after you have the baby is just a blur.  This class shares exactly what to expect in the hospital & when you go home.

  • What to expect during the "golden hour" (and yes, it's as good as it sounds)
  • The difference between labor and delivery and postpartum care - so you know what to expect from your medical team.
  • What you'll expect from your care providers during your hospital stay so you aren't left with a million questions.
  • How your body will feel both in the few days and weeks following delivery, so you can be as comfortable as possible.
  • Warning signs for both mom and baby, so you're filled with confidence that things are OK.
  • Breastfeeding tips, so you can make sure baby is being fed.
  • Feelings, so you're not caught off guard by what emotions you might be feeling .

Wondering how to get the most out of your hospital stay and get all the help from the providers while you're there?  I'll give you the tips to make it great.

Who is the Instructor?

This Prenatal Class is Taught by a Highly Experienced Labor and Delivery Nurse

Hey Mamas

I'm Hilary, I'll be your nurse today.


I don't know how many times I've said that, but it never gets old.


As a labor & delivery nurse for almost 20 years, I've helped thousands of moms in person, and millions of moms over the internet as The Pregnancy Nurse™. It's been my job for two decades to help pregnant mamas overcome their nerves and safely bring their babies into the world.


Plus, I've had three of my own, so I know what it's like to be on the other side of those pregnancy fears.


With everything you need to do to prepare for the arrival of your baby, I KNOW prenatal classes are hard to squeeze into your schedule. But, think about how much time you'd free up in your days & weeks before the big day if you weren't spending so much time worrying about what to expect.


In the span of just a few hours, I can help you simplify labor so you can move on to getting excited for your big day."

Why Birth (or Prenatal) Classes?

I'm so glad you asked.....

Let's see what the studies show:

Benefits of prenatal education classes have included increased confidence for labor and birth among women who attended prenatal classes, higher likelihood of breastfeeding, improved communication between childbearing women and their maternity care providers, decreased need for analgesic medication in labor, and increased satisfaction with birth (Chalmers & Kingston, 2009; Enkin et al., 2000).

Sounds pretty great, right?  As a nurse for 20 years, I stand behind this data.  People who take a class have a happier, more confident birth.

Why an Online Course?

After thousands of deliveries...

I saw that families who took a birth class felt happier with their births, and their transition into parenthood. I KNEW that childbirth education was so important. I knew we needed to do better, and I started teaching prenatal classes for my own hospital to make a change.

But,what we were doing wasn't working....

Couples were:

Busy -- 6 pm on Tuesdays just didn't work for a lot (and sometimes one would have to miss)

Tired
- after a busy day at work they couldn't concentrate & the rooms were uncomfortable, and they were STARVING.

Missing -- Classes filled fast, couples schedules were hard to mesh to find a time that would work.

Not doing it -- So many couples WANTED one, but just couldn't make it work.

So, I changed it

In 2014 I launched the first edition of this class, and have edited and adjusted it until it was one of the best selling, and the most helpful childbirth class on the internet.

I am excited to help you get the confident, collaborative birth you want -- on your OWN schedule. This class is taught entirely on demand. It can be done anywhere or from the comfort of home

FAQ's about the Online Prenatal Class for Couples:

Do you need to be a couple?

Absolutely not.  However, I wanted Dads to feel involved and appreciated in this class.

There are couples questions, but you could totally skip that part very easily.

Who is this class for?

Many classes I have looked at seem to be targeted towards a specific "type" of mom:

I believe & created this class is for every mom planning a hospital/birth center delivery.  Because I have always supported moms and their  choices at the bedside, this class does the same.

How long does this class take?

It really depends on your learning style and how much time you have.  The minimum would probably be 2-3 hours, just to watch the videos (which can be sped up).

Is it HSA /insurance eligible?

Some insurances do cover a childbirth class, and your receipt of my class should be enough to be reimbursed (but I would certainly call before expecting that).  I do provide a receipt that says what it was and who I am.

HSA rules seem to vary a bit by provider, but a class that covers about the delivery of your baby is covered, so I would expect it to be elligible, but of course -- I would talk to your tax man before you plan on that too. :)

Note:  HSA cards often won't work with the teachable system, so you may have to reimburse yourself from it.  Those cards often only work at direct pharmacies or doctor's offices.

Does this include breastfeeding?

There is some information on breastfeeding, but I strongly recommend you take a breastfeeding class on it's own.  I have a few that I recommend inthe course.

When should I take it?

You can clearly buy the course at any point during your pregnancy (I designed it to give you access for the whole thing).

I think the best time to really focus on it is around 30-34 weeks. Obviously, you can buy at any time and then work on it when you feel you're ready! 

Also, even if you're within days or weeks of your due date, you CAN finish this class in a day or two.  So, unless you're in labor RIGHT now -- there's still time!

How Do I Ask a Question?

You can ask it here:

What is Lifetime Access Mean?

It means as long as the course is available on the internet, you will have access to it.  Any further updates, or changes -- you'll get those too.

Pretty great, right?

How can I give this as a gift?

A few options:

1)  Just put in your giftee's email address instead of your own at check out (happy to also email you a gift receipt if you send an email to support@pullingcurls.com)

2)  Use your own email at checkout and then email me so I can switch everything over to them.

3)  If you'd like you give the gift yourself -- just purchase the class, and then email me.  I can give you a 100% gift code that they can "purchase" the class themselves.

Any questions at all -- just email support@pullingcurls.com

How Old is this Class?

The Online Prenatal Class for Couples has been around since 2016.  It was one of the first online prenatal classes out there.  I am really proud to have been around with it that long and a pioneer for online prenatal education.

Since 2016 it has had three MAJOR updates, and is in the midst of it's 4th update.  All information is available in each section, I am slowly editing videos and replacing the previous versions.

You can be sure that the course is up to date as possible and I am constantly vigilant about making sure it gives you what you need to know.

What are you waiting for?

In just a few hours you could be prepared and anxiety-free about your upcoming birth.  Join me today!

  • No more worries about how to talk with your provider (and refusing things with ease)
  • No roller coaster of a delivery.  You'll know what to expect, and even what complications you'll flow through easily!
  • Be on the same page with your partner about what you are both expecting!

How to Feel Prepared for Your Delivery:

It's just 3 simple steps:

Purchase the Class

There's 3 options, so pick which one works for your life, your budget and your needs.  There's something just right for you.

Follow the Instructions

Don't worry, it's all included.  It's super clear where to go/what to do once you sign up.  I've got your back (and your bum).

Love your Delivery

Enjoy the peace of knowing what's going to happen each step of the way.  We won't miss a thing of your hospital stay.

"This class helped us know what to expect during delivery, how to advocate for ourselves, especially during Covid. It essentially replaced an in person hospital tour, as well as going over safety measures."

Dawn Chenette, Former Student

"Easy class to follow with your partner with all the key info. There's also a ton of extra resources if you need them (extra videos, notes, etc.). You can also always reach out to Hillary with questions at the end of each video."

Daniella, Former Student

Expectant parents, new mothers, pregnant moms and new parents are looking for online classes that talk about the stages of labor, birth plans, and the birth process for the birth of their baby. This class is taught by a registered nurse about comfort measures for new moms. It can include include support groups with childbirth educators. It is really important that you learn about medical interventions at your own pace in online birthing classes. You have plenty of time to take it, it has 3 hours of instruction. Similar to in person classes, we will talk relaxation techniques for natural birth, cesarean birth and what your support person can do for you. It is a great option for busy couples. Pain medication is an important aspect that your delivery nurse will discuss with you. Don't forget you don't JUST need these online programs, you'll also need a car seat . It is like the current Lamaze classes that give you valuable information. This class does not cover infant CPR , but it is one of the online childbirth classes. This class may not be enough for natural childbirth . Expectant mothers who expect no pain relief in their birth stories might want to get a course from a Lamaze certified childbirth educator or Hypnobabies. This course does cover baby care, how family members can help even with their busy schedule. Your vaginal birth is important for pregnant women and this class gives you convenient access -- and we even have virtual classes that are similar to an in person class. Make sure that you are getting your prenatal care. for your new baby. This class is OK for people giving birth in a birth center, and have a good internet connection. It is parent education for the entire family to prepare for their birth. It is not created by a lacatation consultant and it is not the Mama Natural Birth Course.
