The Story

Hi, I'm Kortney... the educator behind Luminary Birth. My passion for all things birth started in 2018 when I was pregnant with my firstborn. Growing up, I was afraid of birth based on what I saw in the media and what I heard from those around me.


My own mother had un-medicated births with both my brother and me. I would ask her, how did you do it?! To which she would reply, the part that is the most intense only lasts for a short while and I knew it was what was best for you... 

With that in mind, when the act of birth was a reality, I knew there was so much I didn't know and I needed to take a class.

The class forced me to come to terms with my fears surrounding birth. It gave me the opportunity to UN-learn everything I thought I knew about birth and RE-learn what birth really is. It is a physiological function, like taking air into your lungs - but also deeply personal and spiritual. I was blown away by how much knowledge society lacks when it comes to this natural function, and how many options we have. There is so much power we hold within ourselves that we are not aware of.  

With that knowledge, a new passion was born. To educate everyone and anyone who wants to learn about the wonder that is birth and be empowered to make the best decision for themselves and their babies.
