+ I'm a professional doula. Can I use The Childbirth Cheat Sheets with my clients? Can I use it to help create my own resource guide?
The Childbirth Cheat Sheets is an awesome tool for doulas! As with any childbirth educational resource, it's provided for learning. It's also wonderful for use with clients. For instance, once you've purchased your bundle, you can print, laminate, and pack the sheets in your doula bag for your next birth. BUT... while you're encouraged to use this tool when working with clients, you may not use The Childbirth Cheat Sheets to create your own guide or other resource.

I loved this. It's quick and easy to follow, and not so overwhelming. I’m reading a big book to get ready for our birth, too, but it reads like a text book. These are great to have too because they’re so much easier to access — really helpful crib sheets (haha).
Danny, Papa to 2 + Chef
I used The Childbirth Cheat Sheets to help me prepare for being a labor coach for my daughter. They were a wonderful review of ways for me to help her through her labor, and they eased my anxiety by giving me concert methods to aid her. I loved the added tips of things to keep in mind that might be distracting to her! There was also a list of things that I might need, which was very helpful. The Cheat Sheets were well laid out and easy to refer to — I would recommend them to anyone who is blessed to be part of such an incredible moment. Thank you!

The Childbirth Cheat Sheets is SO helpful! I loved it! I'm expecting my first baby in a few months, and this was simple, straightforward, and didn't overwhelm me — unlike other resources I've used. I also really, really love the design. It's actually soothing to look at while reading. And the illustrations are easy to use, reassuring, and simply adorable. My partner loved it, too, and we look forward to using this during birth.

As a mom of 3 kids plus one on the way, and as a birth doula, I found this very helpful and informative. I especially love the illustrations — they make childbirth “comfort techniques" so much easier to understand and practice when you need them most. I’ve had 4 unmedicated births, and used many of these techniques myself, so I know that they work! I’d recommend this to anybody having a baby, but I think it’s especially helpful for new moms. It’d also be great for new, less experienced doulas as something that they can print, laminate, and take with them to all of their births.

The Childbirth Cheat Sheets is a concise, clear, and compact guide filled with a variety of tips to facilitate a smoother labor, connect a laboring mom with her partner and help the partner feel more engaged in the process. My favorite resource is The Birth Partner Sheet -- as a doula, I've used (or suggested) every one of these techniques. They are tried and tested and make a huge difference in the experience of the birth. Every mama will want her partner to have this resource to serve as a comforting guide as she labors to meet her baby!
