About the Class:

Our Fourth Trimester Survival Groups is ideal for all birth parents of babies 0-12 weeks old. We meet on Zoom once a week for six weeks with a Birthsmarter educator. Participants stay in touch with each other between sessions, and for as long as they’d like after our series ends via a private chat group.

We know it might feel awkward to sign-up for this sort of thing virtually, but feel confident you'll meet the people who will become your go-to people for venting, normalcy checks, and getting advice.

Plus, you don’t have to pack a diaper bag and leave the house! You’ll find a safe space to be totally vulnerable with other people stuck in the exact same weeds you're in – _without_ the judgement that comes from talking to people you know IRL.

What’s Covered

Over the six weeks we will discuss it all, including but not limited to:

  • Birth processing
  • The baby blues and postpartum mood disorders
  • Infant feeding
  • Sleep strategies for the whole family
  • Parenting philosophies
  • Co-parenting and new identities
  • Postpartum rehab, fitness, and pelvic health
  • Self-care while parenting

What’s Included

  • 💬 Weekly video calls and lifetime access to your private chat group
  • 💡Access to Birthsmarter's curated postpartum healing and parenting resources page
  • 🔑 Exclusive partner perks and discounts
  • 🌈 Inclusive and non-judgmental support

About Us:

Birthsmarter lives in the space where biology meets society, wisdom meets data, and empathy meets activism.

Our Birth Story

When our founder, Ashley Brichter, gave birth for the first time in 2014, she had experience with hundreds of families as a doula and birth educator. She already knew everything traditional birth classes were teaching. She felt like she'd done everything right. Then — like so many — her birth did not “go as planned.” Ashley went back to the drawing board. She questioned everything she learned becoming a doula, a childbirth educator, and a parent herself.

Birthsmarter is the result.

Birthsmarter was born with a single monthly birth class in Brooklyn, NY in mid-2019 and has grown into a virtual platform reaching families all over the country. In a world where it can be difficult to keep sight of what is truly important, Birthsmarter is here to model critical, creative, and compassionate thinking, to help you develop a framework for interpreting “expert” advice, and to support you while navigating a system that is built on binary thinking.

Our Core Values

We pride ourselves in being the most unbiased, inclusive, and accessible pregnancy and parenting community in the United States. We consider the following principles in everything we do.

🍼 Being Unbiased

means that we know there is no hierarchy of birth outcomes or parenting choices. That means we do not promote unmedicated births over medicated births or sleep-training over bed-sharing. At Birthsmarter, we believe that families should have the highest quality of education and support to meet them where they are. This means we do not give blanket advice or tell people what to do. We do not make assumptions or lecture on best practices. We share evidence-based resources, community anecdotes, and personal experience while recognizing that one size will never fit all! We want to make sure people feel seen, heard, and supported - NEVER pressured or shamed.

🌈 Being Inclusive

means welcoming all individuals and family structures while recognizing that Black, brown, Queer, fat, disabled, and financially limited individuals and families 1. exist and 2. might have unique needs. As one example of our inclusivity efforts, we default to neutral terms such as “pregnant people” or “partners” instead of leaning on gendered terms like “mama.” We recognize racism and implicit bias in the birth community and work to unpack our own biases and limitations as leaders in the field.

💛 Being Accessible

means meeting people where they are! We offer an alternative pricing policy to make sure every family can access Birthsmarter regardless of their economic status; provide closed captioning in virtual classes; offer classes in multiple formats; and have designed a curriculum with an eye for different learning styles.
