New Parents Love Our Classes


We prepared for our birth with the Birth Boot Camp Comprehensive class and it was a great experience! We loved the virtual modules, easy access, downloadable content, and the workbook. This empowered us to have the relaxed birth experience we wanted and prepared us for all circumstances and proper decision making for our unique needs and hopes.


This class was fun and so informative! There was SO much I didn’t know about all the decisions I could make about my birth. Both my husband and I were so confident during the birth. I knew what my body was doing, and he knew how to comfort and help me. We had a wonderful birth experience because of our class.


My husband and I learned SO much from this course! At one point he said, "I am so glad we are doing this. There is so much I didn't know!" We now both feel at peace and prepared for birth! We recommend this class for all couples to take together before giving birth. So well organized and TONS of great information. You will not regret it!


"Birth Boot Camp's Comprehensive Class has been a godsend for me and my husband. I just completed all 10 classes, and the panic is gone. I feel prepared, informed, capable and most importantly empowered. I now know that I can do this. I've been given the tools and strength to have the birth I envisioned. I could never fully explain how grateful I am to the lovely ladies at Birth Boot Camp. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”

Comprehensive Birth Class


Our most popular class, with the most information, for the best value!

What: The most comprehensive class on the market (we said it and we stand by it!) The Comprehensive class is 10 sessions and covers everything you and your partner need to know about birth, baby, and breastfeeding. We focus not only on preparing physically for labor, but also preparing mentally and emotionally. We cover nutrition, exercise, stages of labor, building your birth team, questions to ask your care provider, variations of labor, birth plans, newborn procedures, parenting a newborn, and much more. We also emphasize your partner’s role and give them tips, tricks, and tools to help support you during the labor and birth process.

Hospital Birth Class


Who: Are you planning to birth in the hospital, but want more than the class at your local hospital?

What: Our Hospital Birth class is 6 sessions that are specifically designed for those who are choosing to birth in a hospital setting. This class gives you the ability to make informed decisions as your birth unfolds. This class gives you more information, tools, and preparation than the average hospital class and will set you and your partner up for success! We cover topics that are specific to this birth place such as induction, policies that impact your birth, and epidurals. This class also covers the stages of labor, comfort measures, relaxation, natural ways of handling pain, and tips and tricks for partners. We want you both to feel confident and ready for the birth of your little one!

Home & Birth Center Class


Who: Are you planning to give birth at home or a birth center? This class is designed with you in mind.

What: Only about 2% of births happen out of the hospital. This puts you in a unique position and requires specific information to prepare for your birth. Our Home & Birth Center class is 5 sessions that is perfect for those planning an out-of-hospital birth. This class dives right in starting with stages of labor and giving you tools for your natural birth. We discuss natural ways of handling pain, the importance of relaxation as the key to an unmedicated birth, and how your partner can make a difference in your birth experience. We also discuss transfer, epidurals, and cesarean sections in the event that medical assistance becomes necessary. This class will build knowledge and confidence for you and your partner to have an amazing home or birth center birth! Prepare for your out-of-hospital birth while lowering your chances of needing interventions.

We discuss parenting techniques, routine testing and procedures, normal newborn behavior, babywearing, sleep arrangements, making a postpartum plan, and much more. This class also includes one year access to our online breastfeeding class hosted by Mellanie Shepherd, IBCLC.

I really don't think I could have gotten through those 18 hours of labor without everything I learned and practiced from Birth Boot Camp. There were definitely times when I thought I couldn't keep going, but I would draw my focus back on all the techniques we learned and practiced. I know that it made a world of difference!

Dr. Adrienne Carmack, MDUrologic Surgeon, Author of Reclaiming My Birth Rights

Birth Boot Camp is an incredibly comprehensive and factual birth preparation course. Presented in a fun and engaging way, Birth Boot Camp provides you all the facts and more that you would get with your own research. You will learn all you really need to know so that you can make truly informed choices and create the best experience possible!


I recommend this class to all pregnant mamas and their partner! Knowledge is power. It reduces fear and increases chances of having a better birthing experience. This class gives unbiased and up-to-date, evidence-based information so couples can make the right choice for them.


Hollie is an absolutely amazing birth instructor. Taking her class was probably one of the best, if not THE absolute best investment we made during our pregnancy!


I couldn’t have done what I did without the knowledge and relaxation skills I gained in class. Thank you for creating such a wonderful program.

Have More Questions? Check Out Our FAQ’s!

Which class should I choose?

Have you taken our quiz? We recommend starting there, but here are a few other things to consider.

You may want to consider the Comprehensive Class is you are a first time parent, planning a natural birth, or are wanting a VBAC. This class also includes information about newborn care, breastfeeding, and the postpartum recovery. You’ll receive complimentary access to the Birth Boot Camp Breastfeeding Class taught by Mellanie Sheppard, IBCLC. It’s great for all birth locations including hospital births and out-of-hospital births. The Comprehensive Class has the most information for the best value.

You may want to consider the Hospital Class if you are looking for information specifically focused on delivering in the hospital. You’ll learn how to navigate hospital policies and interventions, as well as pain management options.

You may want to consider the Home and Birth Center Class is you will be delivering at home or a free-standing birth center. You’ll learn what’s most important in helping you achieve your natural birth, while lowering your chances of needing interventions.

When should I start my class?

A majority of our students begin their class between 20 and 25 weeks.

Ideally, you’d begin your class with enough time to watch one class each week, practice what you learn, do the homework, have discussions together, talk to your care provider, write your birth plan, etc.

If you’re starting a little later, no problem. You’ll just be learning it all in a shorter amount of time.

How long will I have access to my class?

You will have 12 months of unlimited access to the class(es) you are registered for.

What is included in my online class?

Your online class includes hours of video content filled with tons of information and tips, demonstration and practice videos, and relaxation recordings.

Each course has an online e-book with the option to upgrade to a physical workbook if you’d like.

How can I get the most out of my class?

Treating your online classes as you would a live class is the best bit of advice. Pick a class night, put it in your calendar, then do the homework (relaxation, Chow Charts, exercises, discussions with each other and/or care provider, etc.) during the week. Don’t try to cram the classes all at once, even if you are getting a late start. Space them out by at least a few days and work on the weekly assignments even if it’s not for an entire week. Be accountable to each other. Other useful tips can be found once you log on after registration.

What if I have questions? Who do I contact?

Your online instructors, Hollie Hauptly and Cheryl Amelang, would love to help if you have any questions at all while you complete your online class.

Sadly, in the U.S. at least a third of women describe their birth as being traumatic.

Don’t let this be your story! You will only give birth to this baby once. The day you give birth will be a day that you always remember. This day is priceless! It is worth investing your time, energy, and resources to fully prepare for an amazing birth.
