What Makes Us The Gold Standard?
Less "Crunchy" - More Facts!
Are you ready to feel certain that you've found just the right childbirth preparation for you and your partner - finally crossing it off your list?
Let's be real - Most of the classes or childbirth philosophies out there are just too "crunchy", yet the hospital based classes only focus on how to be a good patient. It's vital to be informed about all the challenges you'll face in labor to avoid the common pitfalls and give yourself the best chance to achieve what you most want your birth to be like.
You're not the kind of person who leaves important things to chance, especially not something as vital and profound as your birth! But where can you learn what you need to tip the odds in your favor of having a great birth experience?
Born out of our sincere mission to help you create an improved hospital birth experience we've created our innovative Hospital Birth Masterclass. Effective hospital birth preparation for smart & resourceful expectant parents delivered directly to you without judgement or agenda. All our profound knowledge as certified hospital doulas, an Evidence Based Birth® instructor, and our Pro Tips are just a click away!

Hi from Marnie & Lisa!
Co-Founders of The Hospital Doulas Circle
We're so thrilled you're here!
Your presence helps us fulfill our mission of improving hospital births for couples everywhere! After serving clients as birth doulas only in the hospital setting we've developed a system to elevate your birth experience to what it should be! Our collection of Pro Tips come from our extensive experience as hospital doulas.
Marnie's innovative problem solving communication with hospital staff and Pro Tips along with Lisa's vast knowledge as an Evidence Based Birth® instructor will provide you with all the information and strategies you'll need for a successful hospital birth!
We've seen incredible results through our comprehensive preparation for our birth doula clients but through the pandemic when we weren't allowed in the hospitals we learned that our birth preparation alone was enough! Our clients felt knowledgeable, confident and prepared to make educated decisions and advocate for themselves during their labor & delivery. They knocked it out the park!
The results were so phenomenal we knew we had to make this online preparation available to expectant parents regardless of where they lived or if they were planning on having a hospital birth doula or not!
They helped me understand my options, feel prepared and very knowledgeable going into birthing my baby. They are THE BEST!! I highly recommend their services to a new or experienced mom getting ready for labor. They helped us achieve our desired births- calm, positive and respectful.
Prepare for birth with Marnie and Lisa. It’s a no brainer. I'd like to offer a view from the father's perspective. I needed them probably more than my wife did! Hire them not just for the mom to be, but for the dad to be also. Worth every single penny. You won't regret it!
Having prenatal sessions with them virtually, when so many other things were canceled, helped us feel supported, understood, connected, safe, and less anxious. They helped us develop our ability to advocate for ourselves and made suggestions that were pivotal to our birthing process.
WE'RE SO CONFIDENT IN THE EFFECTIVENESS OF OUR PROGRAM WE GUARANTEE IT!
We guarantee after the birth of your baby, having had the benefit of completing our Hospital Childbirth Masterclass sessions, you will be able to feel you have learned something that significantly helped you to feel more confident, less anxious, know what questions to ask, feel better prepared for your labor, vaginal birth, cesarean birth or post-birth period. If not, we'll be happy to return your cost of the program.Sign Up for the Masterclass!
