Welcome to our online course on natural childbirth
We are Sarah McClure and Charli Zarosinski. We are Certified Professional Midwives and we're the owners and midwives of Hearth and Home Midwifery as well as the instructors of your online childbirth education course.
We’ve worked with future moms and repeat moms for over 8 years, and have found the sweet spot between “by-the-book medical” and “all-natural”. We’ve tailored this educational course to provide a holistic approach to natural home birth which covers all the usual important topics and so much more.
We believe fiercely in the power of women and we're on a mission to help every pregnant person out there feel like they have the confidence and the tools they need to give birth naturally, on their terms! We have supported hundreds of women prenatally, during birth, and in the postpartum. We are the experts on natural childbirth and we're excited to teach you so much of what we know!
MEET THE MIDWIVES
Sarah and Charli share a deep passion for helping families learn, grow and feel supported throughout their pregnancy. They both strongly believe that birth offers an opportunity for empowerment and profound learning about one’s self and look forward to supporting you during this transformative time.
"I recommend Charli and Sarah to everyone I know. We both agreed that this class was well-structured and provided us an increased sense of peace and excitement. We both feel like they touched on so many things that we hadn't learned about in the books, documentaries and articles we have been diving into on our own. I 100% recommend this birthing class and Hearth and Home."

"Their pairing culminates the perfect synchronicity of strength, empathy and love. – Their dedication and love for what they do is evident. I came out of [my birthing] experience feeling like the powerful woman I had hoped to be and with the utmost respect and reverence for the gift these women give so freely and joyfully.”

"I love them as a team, their personalities work great together and really makes the environment one of "we are all in this together.” – [At my birth] I was empowered, energized, calm and in control. We are forever changed by and grateful for Charlie and Sarah. We whole heartedly recommend Hearth and Home. They are the real deal, total B.A's of birthing!”
