Your Investment in YOUR Life Beyond Birth


You could read a book or take a 2-hour class that covers the basics of infant care, but we all know we learn best when we are in relationship - with ourselves, our partners, our peers, and a mentor. This course is uniquely situated to meet those needs and prepare you for a calm, confident, connected beginning of your baby's life. The postpartum period is so hidden, and it is time for us to honor the HUGE transition to parenthood, the recovery and reinvention process that follows birth, and the intuitive and respectful ways newborns ask us to relate with them. I am honored to be your guide in this new adventure!

    Molly R

    I am on a mission to change the world into one where every baby is born to calm, confident, connected parents. So many societal ills stem from unmet needs during our first years. If parents are well supported, babies are too, and our society will become more empathetic, loving, and connected. I have been supporting families in their homes since 2009 and teaching classes to expectant and new parents since 2016. I hold a BA in Latin American Studies (2001); an MAA in Applied Anthropology (2005); and became certified as a Postpartum Doula through DONA International (2009). I live in the mountains of North Carolina with my husband and 2 children.

Life Beyond Birth 101 is empowering, informative, demystifying, connecting, educational, necessary, and fun. I recommend it for couples who are interested in connecting through their experience, uncovering what it really looks like after you bring your baby home, and learning how to be curious about how to best care for yourselves and your baby. I really valued the flow of the class, and how we really connected as partners before getting into the day to day details of postpartum. We were able to be deeply vulnerable about the things that might come up after our baby is born, all the while being held and guided by Molly, letting us know that all of these feelings, anxieties, and fears were normal. The nitty gritty on breastfeeding, infant care, postpartum care, and food demystified a lot of the questions I had about what happens after we bring our baby home! Molly’s presence is immediately calming and confidence inspiring! I am going to miss hearing her voice in our weekly lessons and interacting with her on Monday evenings. Her style of teaching is empowering and trusts that each person knows what's best for their own situation. Doing this course over 9 weeks definitely gave us time for deep discussion and contemplation between lessons. With such a large topic, it was nice to not have everything crammed into a small window of time.

Feeling Connected!

Life Beyond Birth 101 is so enlightening, helpful, supportive, and fun! The specific and concrete information, as well as the opportunity to ask questions, was very valuable. We also really appreciated the framework for couples bonding. Molly helped us do some deep thinking about our needs and desires as new parents, and to find our voice. Her calm presence, extensive knowledge, and stories of other couples were so helpful! Having 9 weeks in which to integrate all that we learned was very helpful and grounding for us. It forced us to slow down, consider, and really feel what this special time might be like. We now see the importance of slowing down, appreciating each moment. Taking this course together as a couple gives us a shared language, which increases our security and communication.

Life Beyond Birth 101 brought a few transformations for me: I shifted into the mindset of a father and supportive partner; I deepened my understanding and empathy for all that a woman goes through in pregnancy, giving birth, and caring for the baby postpartum; and I feel a deeper connection with Sara about what we want our postpartum time to be like. This transformation helps me feel less anxious about being prepared because I have the necessary tools. I can drop into excitement and connection with my wife and the unfolding process. I love that Life Beyond Birth 101 provides compassion and acceptance for the full range of experiences, AND gives us a wealth of tools for caring for ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I most appreciated Molly’s balance of being well-researched and professional, as well as calming, compassionate, and open-minded about alternative modes and approaches. Her presence is perfect: calm, clear, empathetic, sensitive, and direct. Her knowledge and experience are impressive.
