THIS IS WHY I DO WHAT I DO
AND HOW IT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO YOU

Your concerns were once mine.
Your fears were once mine.
I get it.

It’s my mission to provide you with high quality birth and parenting education, coaching, and consultation so that you can create the most positive experiences for yourself and thrive as you birth, nourish and nurture your family. ​

Sometimes you feel ecstatic when you experience the highs and joys of being pregnant. At other times, you feel anxious, doubtful, fearful even. 

Can I cope with labor? Do I have it in me to birth this baby? What kind of a birth should I choose? Will I be a good mother?

From my own experience of personally going through the triumphs and challenges of pregnancy, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding and parenting a growing child with changing needs, and from helping over 200 couples prepare for their own birth and parenting, I can confidently say this: that preparation is key and knowledge is power. 

My absolute favorite part of my work is to witness the transformation in mindset and the confidence building in couples who attend my classes! They go from being fearful and uncertain to feeling empowered and in control of their birth and parenting. It is so inspiring to walk with them through this journey – it is what makes me wake up everyday and love what I do!

Namrita Bendapudi

I am a: Mama, wife, birthkeeper, educator, psychologist, advocate, change maker, believer, doer, teller of stories, holder of space, asker of questions, and challenger of assumptions.

I laugh easily, I love my own company just as much as I do that of others, and I choose to see the good in the world and celebrate it. 

I’m intuitive, I’m empathetic, I’m respectful, I’m supportive. 

Most of all, I love being Mama to my free spirited and feisty 3.5 year old who teaches me something new everyday and inspires me to be a better version of myself.

There Is One Core Value At The Foundation Of All The Work I Do: Respect

It Is this value that I advocate for mothers, fathers AND babies at the center of their birth And parenting experiences.
It is the same value I use in my own interactions with my clients and my loved ones.
It is the value that defines my own birth and parenting journey and one that I hope my daughter imbibes and embraces.
