Birthing a New Mother: A Roadmap From Preconception Through the Early Motherhood to Calm Your Anxiety, Prepare Your Marriage, and Become the Mother you Want to Be

A home study program to create the optimal environment for birthing your baby and yourself as a mother (and father). The eight downloadable lessons beginning in preconception and continuing through the first year of parenthood include videos, articles, and interviews with three psychotherapists, a midwife, a childbirth educator, and a postpartum doula who speak to the question, “How do you prepare for the transition of parenthood and learn to manage your anxiety, calm your fears, prevent postpartum depression, babyproof your marriage, and bond with your newborn?” (Hint: It has nothing to do with focusing on the externals of ovulation sticks, ultrasounds, and baby STUFF!)

    I ordered the eCourse, but it hasn’t arrived yet.

    Thanks so much,

    Mary Cobb

  • Please email me directly and we’ll figure out what happened. It’s an instant download so it should have arrived immediately in your inbox!

  • Caroline Weber

    Do you have a return policy if you’re not satisfied with the ecourse?

  • Kelly

    What is the major difference between the open your heart, wedding and wedding premarital course?

    • The Conscious Weddings ECourse is focused on relationship anxiety. Open Your Heart is a guided 30 day program to help you feel more love and attraction, and receive personal attention from me. The premarital course is for couples to help them learn the tools that will assist them in beginning their marriage on a healthy foundation.

  • Kelly

    Thank you! After finding this blog, I’m not as anxious about marriage – however, I would like a strong foundation and lessons on how we can communicate and maintain a strong relationship, while building our attraction toward one another. So maybe the Open Your Heart or premarital course would be best?

  • Lauren

    Which e-course would be best for me – the Relationship Course or pre-marital course. I am married 3 years and would love to learn more abouttips to keeping a strong,healthy marriage?

  • Jamie

    Hello Sherly,

    I have been following your blog for about a 1 1/2 years now and still haven’t purchased a course to assist me with relationship anxiety. I am currently married. Yes, I was the anxious bride and read your book during my engagment and first year into marriage. I still struggle on and off and more so now that my husband and I are expecting our first child. (Both turning 30) this year. Anxiety has been through the roof of projections towards my husband that something is “wrong” with us or I wouldn’t be feeling this way kind of thoughts, (you know all of those things I’m talking about)
    As a professional (occupational therapist) who works with many children with disabilities have started to be anxious about all the things that could go wrong! Right? So I’m struggling to decide which course at this time would be best suiting for me. (I find that most of my anxiety stems from my projections about my relationship) which I have a keeper so I’m trying my hardest to cope and have decided its time to truly love myself enough to sign up for a course or two. I truly want my pregnancy to be such a beautiful experience as I believe how spiritual this transition is. It’s beyond and amazing blessing I dont want to “miss”. Like I felt through my wedding experience that I still wish I could go back and be more present for. As we all know, the wedding is a right of passage, which I am learning to slowly understand and let go of the fairy tale I thought it should have been. So I’m hoping you can direct me to the best course you perhaps feel would be best for me at this time. Thank you for your wisdom and truly am
    Grateful each week for your beautiful blog

    Sincerely,

    Jamie

    • Thank you for your lovely comment, Jamie. Truthfully, I would recommend that you give yourself, your marriage, and your baby the gift of both courses. The course on relationship anxiety will help you own your projections toward your husband and heal the root causes of your anxiety and the motherhood course will help you prepare emotionally so that you can birth yourself as a mother and receive your baby with open arms.

  • Jake

    How do I sign up for the open heart 30 course?
    Also I’m from Ireland is this ok?

  • Suzie

    i signed up for the trust yourself course yesterday, i didnt get an email receipt. Is this ok?

  • I would love to be on the list for the early bird registration for this course. Thanks so much!

  • Tina

    I’m currently suffering from ROCD or relationship anxiety as you call it, for 2 years with my partner of 4 years. It has since transferred to all of my close familial relationships, making me question my love, care for them and my capacity to love as a human being. This has spiraled me into a deep depression. Do you think any of your ecourses would help me in this situation?

  • Jeremy

    Hi Sheryl,

    Firstly I would like to thank you for the guidance and e-course has given me. I got engaged to my Fiancé last October and everything was going so well until I got struck down with pre wedding anxiety towards the end of June. I was so frightened when this happened to me and all of a sudden I feared that I was making a mistake in marrying my beautiful fiancé and best friend. I have been in a loving relationship with the last 7 years and during those 7 years I have had the time of my life and now all of a sudden I question if I’ll be happy when I get married and find myself looking at flaws in my fiancé and trying to find flaws in my relationship. As a result I am seeing a therapist and I purchased the wedding e-course about 2weeks ago. I know I’ll have to work through the course and that it will take time to get through this anxiety. The fear scares me so much but i have improved since I got the help both from your course and the therapist and I would recommend the wedding e-course to anyone going through the same. Should I keep working through the wedding e-course on its own or take up another course that you would recommend?
    Regards

    Thank you very much!

    Hi Sheryl,
    I have been following your blog for some time and i find it very inspirational. I would like to do one of your e-courses but i’m no sure if any of them are right for me. I am not in a relationship at the moment, though i have started dating someone recently. I have had two long term relationships but have not had one for a number of years, i think in part due to the fact that i’ve developed somewhat of a relationship phobia. At first i told myself it was because i hadn’t met “the right person” but as the years have passed i’m wondering am i just walking away from good people because i’m scared. Your courses seem to be aimed at people in relationships, is there anything for someone struggling to find a meaningful relationship?
    Many thanks,
    Ann.

  • Amy

    Hi Sheryl!

    I’ve taken the Conscious weddings ecourse and loved it and loved the board—find it all super helpful. I’m currently trying to work on loving myself more and finding fulfillment for my own needs from myself, not from my partner. I’ve done some of the inner bonding work. Basically, I’m torn between taking your Trust Yourself course and your mother’s Love Yourself course. Which do you think would be more useful for learning to self-love, self-soothe and harness my LA a little more?

    Thanks!!

  • Have you ever considered certifying people to teach your mothering course? As a doula I’d love to offer your program to my clients as I do many of the things you discuss but a kit, access to the videos and articles and some formal training in your program would be awesome.

    • I’ve considered offering certification programs for a long time but my time hasn’t allowed creating them yet. Eventually! In the meantime, please contact me about how to offer the birthing program in a more feasible way to your clients.

  • Brianna

    Hello,

    Do you have a course suggestion for intrusive thought ocd?

  • Eva

    Dear Sheryl,

    On the search of what is wrong with me and/or my relationship I found your webpage. I’m struggling to decide on which course would be suitable. Here a bit if background: with 25 (I’m 33 now) I moved to another (1,5 flight-h away from home) country to be with my partner. We had 1,5 years of long distance relationship and I was very much in love and trusted him to be my life partner. When I moved I didn’t speak the language or had a job, friends or my own family. I started doubting the relationship silently for myself as I always was weighing if all if that was worth it. I broke up with him in the end after seeing a relationship therapist who confirmed to me that my partner wasn’t emotionally available for me and couldn’t open up and meet my emotional needs. Soon after that I met a 10 yr younger man, I was totally in love for 1,5 years until he became anxiety, that our relationship would force him to miss out on travelling, friends and so on you have at his young age. I couldn’t stand his doubts and after 3-6 month including councelling I decided to leave the country and break up. Within one week I lost everything. My home (I lived in that country for 7,5 yrs), my job and my friends. I took my dog and went back to my home country to soon after leave to study half way around the world for my masters and figure out where I wanted to live as I didn’t feel home anywhere. I returned after my studies to my home country again, but had met someone during my studies. Long story short, I moved again, half way around the world, with high expectations on our relationship as we seemed to “connect” and understand each other better than I ever had experienced before on an adult level. I love his country and I have a great job here. But I am back to doubting my love, attraction and my decision to be with him. I do think he is the perfect for for me, but how can I actually start to enjoy my relationship? My mind plays tricks on me going back to my previous, yonger, crazy in love partner who wasn’t actually suitable for me. I know it’s fear driving this. Fear of never being able to have what my parents have, a “perfect” life partner. Which course would you recommend?

    • The Conscious Weddings ECourse would be ideal for you, Eva. I recommend that you sign up as soon as possible as the earlier you deal with the anxiety the easier it is to resolve it. I’m currently running my annual Black Friday sale through Monday. Enter GRATITUDE2014 at checkout to receive the discount.

  • Courtney

    I read your article/blog on MBG on the #1 reasons people “fall” out of love. The lead me to your website. I am in a big transition. And feel I have been for several years. In those years I closed a business, moved to another country, got engaged, married a year later, a baby a year later, moved 8 hours north of where we were living when our daughter was 6 months old (that was 3 years ago). In just those 3 years, we had a HUGE adjustment financially, I turned 30, husband turned 40, he left his business of 7 years, and most recently he got fired. In the last 3 years I have been “waking” up so to speak. Doing ALOT of inside work. After reading some stuff on your website I have realised I have a bit of relationship anxiety. We are going to see a counsellor and she is great and working on a more conscious approach to relationship counselling. I notice though that when we get in arguments I go from being very honest and open and that is met with defense, then I shut down and clam up, then I go through self doubt and relationship doubt then I get sad and lonely and confused and scared. I am exhausted in general as the last how many years have been extremely full of LOTS of change. I don’t have a lot of space for anything and notice its affecting not only me, but our daughter and obviously relationship as well. I feel like I am going crazy and know it takes 2 to tango but surely it can’t all be me like he so often seems to think. The only thing getting me through each day is knowing it can’t be like this forever and something has got to give. I writing as I am not to sure what E-course to do. The relationship one ( I used to thnk we had a great one) or the conscious wedding one or the 30 day program? Thank you.

    • Thank you for your comment, Courtney, and I’m glad to hear that you’re in counseling together. I would suggest that you start with Open Your Heart, which will open for registration on January 12th, and then consider Trust Yourself in March.

  • Liz

    Hi Sheryl,

    I’ve been struggling with ROCD and HOCD for the last two years. Would these e-courses help with those? If so, which ones?

    Thank you.

    • Hi Liz: The Conscious Weddings E-Course would help you enormously as it would help get to the root cause of your intrusive thoughts. Some of the language is geared toward engaged women, but most is relevant to anyone struggling with relationship anxiety and its offshoots, including ROCD and HOCD.

  • Seeking Shalom

    Hi Sheryl,
    I stumbled upon your blog a couple of days ago during a “google binge” as I’ve seen it called here. I think I have relationship anxiety and would greatly benefit from many of your e-courses, but am unsure which one is best suited for my situation. I’ll give you a bit of background so perhaps you can help me discern the best path to healing.

    -Wasn’t looking for a romantic relationship when I connected with my now boyfriend of one and a half years, I was content and fulfilled with singleness, he progressed too fast for me (and still does)
    -We have a 6 year age difference, race difference, and currently are undergoing a military long distance relationship (but still have ample communication)
    -Struggled with Perfectionism/fear of failure/not being good enough all of my life
    -History of extremely high stress levels
    -Overachiever that sacrificed self care (but in the past couple years I have been intentionally developing these skills)
    -Sometimes I am not attracted to my partner and/or not connected to him (before and during the long distance)
    -There are many foundational core values, visions, and traits that my partner and I share, but there are still some very major areas in which we differ. This is a major anxiety for me in conjunction with my previous life plan of singleness
    -My partner is not naturally inclined to express his thoughts and feelings like I am, but he incredibly supportive through everything and is committed both to me and working on our connection.
    -We are talking about getting engaged, married, and purchasing our first home sometimes soon after he gets back, so in other words, major life changes!

    Hopefully you can recommend which course you think is most fitting. Thanks!

    • I would suggest your start with the Conscious Weddings E-Course. It’s the most comprehensive course and addresses all of the issues you’re struggling with. You may also choose to continue with Trust Yourself after you’ve completed the course to address the perfectionism and fear of failure.

  • eva

    Hi Sheryl, I’m thinking about taking your 30day open heart course starting soon. My question would be, on which certain days and times would the conference calls be? Just to have an idea so I can schedule my work around it.

    Thank you & have a good night
    Eva

  • Magda

    Hi Sheryl!

    Ive had 8 months of hell since I woke up one day in August feeling something wasnt right with my relationship. If I could just wind the clock back to that time – I would do anything to do so. I’m so unsure of what to do – It didn’t happen to me during a transition like engagement and yet I’m obsessing. So how does work on transitions help me with my relationship anxiety? Ive had BDD and bulimia (still have bulimia) – a LOT of selfhatred and so on for years and years. My relationship has no red flags, but we had only been dating for a year (he was very hard to get but when he got there after 6 months of dating I was in a bliss and very much thought about marrying him) before my anxiety hit me over night. He doesn’t understand me, but he knows Im hurting from doubts amd tries to help me. But he gets frustrated that It never seems to end. Just bought your e course a month ago but 8 MONTHS – why am I not the slightest better? I think Im a lost case, maybe Im ruining his and my life by not letting him go…

    • Hi Magda: I’m so sorry you’re suffering. There is no magic pill when it comes to relationship anxiety or any kind of self-healing work, especially when it’s compounded by years of self-hatred, but what I can say is that if you consistently do the work that I suggest in the course you will start to feel better. DAILY practice is the key, as well as receiving extra support for your other struggles (bulimia).

  • Magda

    Oh, and also – is there some way I could pay for private sessions with you?

    • My counseling practice is full but given your other comment I STRONGLY recommend that you find a local counselor who can support you toward your healing. I can also highly recommend my friend and colleague, Carrie Dinow. She works in a very similar way that I work and is a highly skilled, compassionate, and licensed therapist with twenty years experience. You can learn more about her here:

  • Siren

    Sheryl after reading the article about most stressful transitions I came to realise that I’m going through several transitions this year. Mid-twenties, moving to other town and getting married. I feel like a baby kicked out of stroller and being told that it should know how to walk but is just rolling on the ground helpless. The year started demotivated which lead to strong anxiety including relationship anxiety (which lead me to your lovely website). I’ve learned a lot here but now I am feeling more depresswd and apathic than ever anf it’s a horrible feeling. I feel like crying but no tears are coming. I am constantly reading articles and comments on this website for a month and am desperately seeking a way to get out of this depression but nothing is happening. I know that eating, sleeping and excersising right is very important but I cannot find enough motivation to be disciplinef because I feel so lifeless. I feel useles, hopeless and I do not know what to do anymore! :( Is there a course that would benefit me? Any advice? I do not know what to do with myself. For a short period of time it was comfronting to know that I’m not the only one but it’s not enough anymore. I want to break free… Please help

  • BP

    Dear Sheryl, I’m concidering joining a course but I’m having trouble deciding which one. I am going through transition and I feel so lost, it’s crazy. I am about to start living with my fiance some time during this year and I cannot focus on anythimg else. I started feeling anxious about everything to the point where I couldn’t sleep, but now I feel a bit better although my anxiety has begun to influence my relationship and my fiance said that je doesn’t know what to tell me, how to confort me and how ro criticize me anymore because whatever he says or do to make me feel better I still feel the same way – scared, depressed and like I don’t know who I am and what I want anymore. He even mentioned a couple of months of separation and it scared me so bad…
    Do you have any suggestion? I feel like a lost case. Would I be able to follow and benefit from the course/programm since I am not religious and the whole holistic approach is so foreign to me as well as the “spiritual language” that I’ve been seing along this website?! Do you think I could understand and relate since I’m so left-hemisphere-dominant? Looking forward to hearing your oppinion. Thank you

    • The Conscious Weddings E-course would be ideal for you. It’s not religiously-based. It teaches you how to work with fear effectively, which, for some people, means connecting with a higher guidance, but that’s not an essential component of the work.

  • Uma

    Dear Sheryl,
    Is it normal for anxiously engaged to start thinking about death? I am going through a transition and thinking about things I never tought about before, so I am very curious could the transition be a reason. Thanx!

    • Yes it’s quite normal. As transitions are essential death and rebirth experiences, you’re aligning with the archetypal and psychological aspects of this time. Instead of thinking about actual physical death, ask yourself what part or parts of you are dying right now.

      • Uma

        Yes, it really does feel like parts of me are dying. I feel like a daughter-part, a protected-child is dying in order for me to be born as a grown woman and a wife. It´s rather painful because I am so very much connected to my parents and I always deeply cared about their opinions (sometimes too much!) so it´s hard to let go of that and focus on how to make my own living and make them, and myself proud doing that. Do you have any articles covering that topic of growing up, leaving parents? Or a film/book recommendation? Thank you so much, Sheryl!

  • Germa

    Dear Sheryl,

    any advice on how to “fill my well” while in transition? I am working with therapist to reduce my anxiety and I want to feel more love and passion toward my fiance as well toward myself. I appreciate you advice!
    Lots of love

  • Lex

    I need a little bit of help. I can’t seem to find article(s) about “now that I don’t have anxiety does it mean that I really don’t care?” And what to do to get through without creating anxiety about not having anxiety? Ugh, the brain is so weird!
    Thanx in advance

    • Yes the brain is quite interesting ;) . When the intensity of the anxiety dissipates, that’s when the true work can begin of turning inward and giving attention to your own well of Self.

  • Glica

    Dear Sheryl,
    thanx to your blog and my therapy, my anxiety has decreased. I’ve realised that I always cared about my boyfriend. He’s always been my best friend and I can talk to him about everything and anything any time. I just got scared whether it is ok… is it normal to feel that way… more like friends and less like butterflies and fireworks (I realize that’s the infatuation but still…). I am a bit afraid because I am anxious to start a family with him although he’s wonderful. Why is that? What do you think, am I making a deal out of nothing? Thanx

  • Nao

    Dear Sheryl,
    I am struggling with the relationship anxiety but also I beleive that a huge part of it comes from not trusting myself. One of the biggest issues is orientation: my parents say that it is just a social influence and that sooner or later I will understand I will need a man and I myself started doubting it not long ago parents knew. Now I can’t understand what is true anymore. Was that really just an influence of modern culture? Does my anxiety occur because I actually don’t like to be with woman? Or am I doubting it because my parents do? What do I actually want?
    What my biggest fear about it is that once I will suddenly understand that I am not as happy with my girlfriend as I would be with a guy and as parents say, that nature will get me. But she is just the preson I always dreamt about, I don’t want to loose her!
    I also experience anxiety over the future of our relationship especially when I hear the stories of others, I start to project them onto our future. What if we don’t make it? What if I will fall in love with another person? What if we will argue over something too much? What if we will find some red-flag issue that will torn us apart? Everything is too good to be true!
    I really want to be happy with my girlfriend but all those fears just don’t allow me. What course should I choose?
