Knows their client’s body like the back of their hand and understands
what to do when to encourage progress in birth.
Cool cloths and encouraging words are important, but when you add
targeted tools to your toolbox, you set yourself apart. Now you can
facilitate immediate physical results during birth too.
That feeling when something you’ve coached a client to do, and then
suggested during the birth, works in real time?
And pretty soon word spreads that “THIS birth pro” is doing something
different. This birth pro is working with pregnant people to prepare their
body for birth…
This birth pro is tailoring their approach to each unique client in front of them……
This birth pro REALLY understands the science behind preparing for
and supporting a more efficient physiological birth...
And… This birth pro is getting results.
Suddenly you’re not looking for clients any more, they’re finding you.

Know what positions to suggest to encourage progress—delaying or even eliminating the need for medical intervention.
Be clear on what will work best for your client’s unique body (and why) to decrease pushing time and likelihood of injury.
Be prepared with specific hands-on tools to encourage progress and address delays, plus certainty on when, why and how to use them!
Confidently advocate for the birth your client wants.
Learn the importance of rest and how to prepare your client to get enough of it.
Know how to address tension in your client’s postpartum body.
Be equipped with tools to support your client in recovering from scarring due to c-section or tearing.
“This is the best training I have ever taken... truly! Other trainings left me feeling like I didn't
understand the why or physiology behind the recommendations and tools. BRM® finally brought it all
together and connected all the pieces of wisdom.
I learned life-long skills and tools to share with clients that still allowed me to stay within my scope of practice. This training needs to be a part of every doula training.”

Birth is unpredictable.

Emerge as an active birth pro.
The training runs for 5 months with 4 weeks
of planned time-off included in the schedule.
PLUS once you certify
you’ll be eligible:
The weekly lives happen on Thursdays. Check out this document for the live dates and the scheduled weeks off. And remember, its ok to if you can't join live - replays will be available!
You will be able to increase what you offer to your clients (including BRM® assessments) and
create individualized plans for your clients to better balance and strengthen their bodies
during pregnancy. This, as you will learn in the certification, positively impacts the birthing
experience and postpartum recovery. You will also be able to support your clients during
pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, offering them more than just comfort measures!
When you successfully certify as a BRM® Pro, you will have access to the BRM® logo to use in your marketing!
This training is a combination of asynchronous and live learning opportunities that take place virtually. The training lasts 5 months with 15 weeks of content and 4 weeks of scheduled breaks. During the 15 weeks of content, there are items to read, videos to watch, and a weekly live session. The live session will be recorded in the event you are not able to join live. There will be quizzes each week that are designed to help you consolidate what you’ve learned, not to overwhelm you! They are “open book” and you can take them as many times as you need to. Plus, you will have a peer group to support your learning and integration throughout the course.
Once you complete all requirements, you will be sent a printable certificate, invited to the private BRM® Facebook group. And that is not all - you will be eligible for future trainings as well as discounts on them. Plus, if you choose to be an Active Certified BRM® Pro, there are additional benefits.
You are welcome to apply for an extension.
You cannot create or run BRM® classes or workshops. You also cannot create or run OSM classes or workshops.
Yes! With the private Facebook group for the duration of the training and the peer learning groups, you will have the support you need every step of the way.
We have a private facebook group for those who have completed a Body Ready Method® training or
This is a great place to connect with like-minded professionals for networking and support and get additional support from Lindsay and Lauren.
We welcome any and all questions so please ask them! If you have a question, it is highly likely that others going through the program will benefit from the response so please do post!
We currently offer CEUs from multiple organizations.
If we do not offer CEUs for the organization you need, we are happy to provide a packet of information you can share with your licensing agency/organization to see if they will approve CEUs for the training.
An Active Certified BRM® Pro is one who has completed their certification and paid the annual fee. This annual fee allows the pro to be listed in our online directory, use BRM® logos for marketing and advertising, participate in quarterly coaching calls with Lindsay, apply to become an affiliate for OSM, apply to be a BRM affiliate, access the Active Certified BRM® Pro Portal, and we are planning even more benefits to add!
Yes, absolutely. But it's even more than release work, we address the body mechanics, movement
patterns, and alignment in order to assess and know what an individual body may need.
And then we address it with exercises that are done consistently over time for long-lasting change. A lot of late pregnancy and birth release work is temporary. We do teach this temporary release work, but we will be coming at it in a more proactive way by addressing it through the BRM® method to create lasting change!
Participants do have access to both the prenatal and postpartum OSM programs. One Strong Mama is our program for pregnant people so it is very much from a lay person perspective and does not go into depth with the "why" that you’ll be doing as a pro. It also does not provide a personalized approach. OSM teaches basics and addresses our full body 5 pillar body ready approach through exercise classes.
Not necessarily, no. It is sometimes nice to have because they can just hit play and do the exercises. We have a lot of birth pro who are OSM affiliates so they receive a percent of each sale and we give them a coupon code for $10 off for their clients. But we also get that OSM is not for everyone. Those in the BRM® training will fully understand the background to do the OSM-type work with their clients but are not able to teach a BRM® or OSM class or workshop.
No. If your intention is to teach movement courses you will need an additional qualification. However, you can incorporate this knowledge into your current scope of practice.
This is a continuing education training. If your intention is to become certified as a doula, you will need to seek additional training.
You can not call your offerings (e.g. class, workshop) “Body Ready Method®” or BRM® or “One Strong Mama or OSM”. However, if you are using information that was learned in this training, you must say that the information comes from the Body Ready Method®. You can also advertise that you are Body Ready Method® certified should you choose to complete the certification requirements.
There are planned breaks of 1-2 weeks throughout the training. In addition, you have 2 months from the last live meeting to complete the requirements for certification. If you do not successfully complete all requirements within the 2 months, you will need to start the process over which includes registering and paying for another cohort of the training.
You will have lifetime access to your cohort’s content. If you would like to participate in future cohorts you can do so for a discounted price. Future versions of content are only available to those in the cohort in which it was released.
