What Makes the Yaya Guru Childbirth Course Different?
Four main advantages that set Yaya Guru apart from just about any other childbirth course is that these classes are:
up to date
Being independent means that no hospital or care provider is paying me. I am not censored in teaching, nor do I have a vested interest in “selling” you any procedures because of someone else’s policies. This also means that content is more in depth than contracted educator’s. You will receive more unfiltered, concentrated information and heart than from a hospital sponsored or even from other 'methods' that train and contract with educators.
Birth practices and findings sometimes change rapidly, which is why staying up to date is a high priority for Yaya Guru. No waiting for materials and content to go up the chain, get approved, and then updated like most other childbirth educators. I stay well informed of current research findings, make it a point to stay well read, attend conferences, network with local birth professionals, and volunteer with childbirth organizations.
And because I am also a holistic professional, you get the advantages that that knowledge brings to the birth year. Allopathic medicine has very few methods to avoid, treat, and remedy ailments and complications without putting assuming some major risks. On the other hand, holistic medicine offers time tested, reliable, safe and affordable methods to create health and wellbeing during pregnancy and beyond. As the author of The Way of the Peaceful Birther, I firmly believe that the birth year can and should be a peaceful, empowering experience no matter the outcome, and that fear and anger have no place in birth. Yaya Guru is a process, not a method, and offers a unique approach to the integration of mind, body and spirit. My goal is to help you approach your experience peacefully, that facilitates your innate knowledge and inform you of all your options for maternity care, birthplace and parenting choices.
I also have a firm belief that the most likely way to acheive the safest, most satisfying birth is through the applying the principals of gospel of Jesus Christ and making Him the center of your experience. If you choose to spiritually enter into this experience with your whole heart, I testify that you can uncover an amazing amount of hidden treasures of knowledge, that will impact the level of safety as well as satisfaction you desire.
What Are The Advantages and Drawbacks of Online Education?
When you enroll as a student at Yaya Guru, you’ll have quite a few advantages over traditional, in-person childbirth classes.
Here are just a few of them:
Whether you are unable to travel to a class or backpacking across Europe (like ya do) , the course goes with you.
No worrying about covering more “sensitive” topics in a room full of strangers.
No set schedule. You can study the course at your own pace, whether that's binge listening over a weekend or at 1 am.....
Lifetime access. Keep the course and go through as many times as you like. Reviewing the info really does wonders.
Easy to consume. Listen to the course and view the handouts by downloading the mp3′s and PDF's and listen on your favorite device. I'm modern like that.
Zero risk. You have a full 30 days to try each Yaya Guru class module, during which you can ask for a full refund if you are not 100% satisfied.
Will you be missing out on anything if you don't take in person classes?
Really, that is up to you. I’ve designed the online course to include the same exact material that my in person course offers, but it will require some additional personal responsibility on your part to listen in, participate in the course work and progress without another person “pushing” you to. Besides that, there is nothing you would be missing!
Do I Have To Be Christian or LDS To Benefit From the Course?
Of course not!
Yaya Guru comes from a space of inclusivity and acceptance while being unapologetic and maintaining integrity to her faith. No heavy handedness, negativity, or guilt here. There is so much meaty info in these classes no matter what your spiritual or religious affiliation, you'll be blown away with all the practical info. The spiritual aspect of this course is a compliment that for those who come from a place of belief that it will be a strength and benefit to them, but certainly I believe that regardless of your belief system you will be happy with the classes if you can respect all the religious and spiritual perspective infused in them!
What's Included in the Course?
Yaya Guru is a Gospel centered, holistic online childbirth course that is divided into 10 class modules, with additional bonus modules that will expand the course. Each module is comprised of about one hour of audio training and beautifully designed accompanying handouts to help you get the most out of the course. In all, the course includes over 150 pages of handouts and accompanying articles.
When you invest in my course, what you’re really getting is over a decade of researching and compiling information into the most accessible format possible. It would literally take you years to track down all of the information in the Yaya Guru Online Childbirth Course if you tried to do it yourself.
Instead, you get every single tip I have learned over the years to create a wonderful pregnancy and childbirth, and get to tap into all of my years of personal experience as a doula and childbirth educator, which simply can’t be replicated.
If you were to hire me to coach you on this information on a one-on-one basis, I would have to charge several hundred dollars for all of the time involved. Luckily for you, in this online format I can provide all of the same value and expertise at a small fraction of that cost.
