Are you feeling prepared for the homebirth of your dreams… or do your friends, family & the media paint labor as a nightmare?
Good news: There’s a better way to achieve your peaceful, empowering homebirth. Let me show you.
ENTER: THE HOMEBIRTH COLLECTIVEApply Now!
The Homebirth Collective is a an intimate, comprehensive coaching and education program for thoughtful homebirth mothers who are ready to release the societal birth baggage and reclaim the feminine, intuitive birth process in the next 12 weeks.
STOP LOOKING TO THE MAINSTREAM FOR ANSWERS ABOUT BIRTH WHEN YOU’RE PLANNING A HOMEBIRTH
You know as well as I do that the answers you’re receiving from everyone else are negative, traumatic, and downright incorrect at worst; and even the lovely natural birth courses aren’t directed towards your homebirth experience, leaving you feeling lacking.
Truth bomb: You want an empowering homebirth. And badly!
But despite your very best efforts, it’s clear that something’s missing.
Giving up on your dream of a connected, primal experience sounds tempting when it looks like there are zero resources to support you on your journey. But the thing is... you’re COMMITTED to making this empowering transformation into motherhood in your own home happen -- and cracking the code on how to do this with confidence-just like your female ancestors have done for all of time.
And that's where The HBC comes in.
"But is it really even possible to prepare for my homebirth? Don't I just need to go with the flow?"
Listen, when you prepare, you can come out on the other side feeling as amazing as Kadie Tessendorf, a homebirth mama and previous student:
My friend, I know. You've...
> Read Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth
> Watched The Business of Being Born
> Binged a couple dozen hours (or more) of homebirth stories
But how are you connecting to the primal, intuitive mother that you were meant to be? It’s frustrating and demoralizing to feel like you’ve tried (or at least considered) it all, and to be honest you’re TIRED and ready for a clear path to success...
Real talk: The reason those things haven’t worked for you is because our entire societal mindset towards birth is whackadoo, so we must get to the deep root of the issues. You need education, yes, but you also need heart and head transformation.
We’ve seen clients struggle with this over and over again, which is why we created The Homebirth Collective.
We’ve helped 500+ homebirth mothers just like you achieve that glorious feeling of empowerment regarding their homebirth.
If you’re truly ready for REAL Empowerment, REAL Peace, The Homebirth Collective was designed specifically to help you get there.
Our approach is different than the basic childbirth education program you’d access online or in person because… you are receiving direct coaching and having your specific trouble spots rectified. This loving community container means that you are no longer living in the isolated homebirth silo…. You, along with the women around you, are forging lifelong friendships and the intuitive wisdom you’ll rely on for the rest of your motherhood.
Over your 12 weeks working through The Homebirth Collective, we will focus on the following areas and goals:
> You will deprogram the mistrust of birth we’ve been force-fed for generations and you will release all accompanying and individual fears
>You will reconnect to the primal mother that you were always meant to be: Learning to feel your intuition and lean into it deeply, healing the nervous system and creating the righteous boundaries that will serve you throughout motherhood…
>You will study the physiology (the what and how) of labor so that we know exactly what our body is doing and why it’s doing it… making the laboring process incredibly familiar before you even experience it
>You will integrate all of these aspects to improve relationships with your spouse and birth team, and learn the age-old techniques to turn labor into an enjoyable, euphoric experience
Qualification for The HBC
The Homebirth Collective seeks homebirth mother applicants with specific criteria.
The fact is -- we can only accept a limited number of participants at any given time -- and (because of our guarantee below) we only work with those who are qualified and ready to show up, do the work, and focus to achieve the objectives of the program.
Because of this, it’s imperative that every participant is truly ready for this level of growth and commitment -- for an empowered birth experience -- and has the attitude and drive to make the most of their time in The Homebirth Collective to get there!
It is truly exciting to support driven homebirth mothers as they achieve their empowered, peaceful homebirth, but we must make sure you are qualified (and ready) before we commit to working with you in this program.
THIS IS FOR
> First-time (or 2nd! Or 3rd! or 14th!) Homebirth Mothers who are seeking an empowered experience and ready to be fully prepared in 12 weeks.
> Homebirth Mothers who recognize that the DIY childbirth education program scene is deeply lacking and who are craving the healing that only a community of women can bring
> Homebirth Mothers who place tremendous value on bonding with their baby and family, and who understand that the value of an empowered birth is an investment in your future mental health
> The renegade Homebirth Mother who is ready to learn to stand strong in her convictions
> The Homebirth Mother seeking to return birth to its rightful, celebratory place- for her own sake, but also for the sake of her descendants
THIS IS NOT FOR
> Mothers wanting to give birth unmedicated in the hospital
> Those who plan to just “go with the flow” and hope for the best
> Someone looking to check out and use drugs to avoid the birth transformation
> Those who would prefer to just do what they’re told to avoid conflict
> Anyone who wants to maintain the status quo and give their birth responsibility to “authority figures”
> Mothers unwilling to invest (not just financially, but also emotionally) in preparation for this all-powerful birth event
How we’ll work together through The Homebirth Collective
The format of The Homebirth Collective is what makes it truly unique and helps you achieve results that were previously not possible. When we speak, I’ll explain the entire format and structure in detail.
For now, what’s most important to know is that we use a blend of…
You’ll receive 1-2 live videos each week (with unlimited replay access) to walk you through The Homebirth Collective framework step-by-step. You will be accessing all content through our HBC Facebook Group, Zoom and Kajabi.
Every week we’ll meet as a small group to go over your goals, strategy, and questions about the framework and process.This means weekly access with Katelyn Fusco throughout our 12 weeks to make sure you are getting all of the personal attention and feedback you need. You are known, cherished and loved by each member of the group.
GUEST EXPERT TRAININGS:
Gain insight from some of the best women and professionals in the homebirth and surrounding fields, including Dr. Courtney Kahla, Kyleigh Banks of The Autonomy Mommy, Sophia of Wild Sage Womb, Theresa Piela of Living Roots Wellness, Christy Sheffer of The Perinatal Trauma Center, and more!
You will be surrounded by other homebirth mamas just like you -- with similar goals to yours. Inside of this group, you’ll be able to help track one another’s progress, support each other through challenges and wins, and keep your drive high! Because we are so selective about who is allowed into the program, rest assured this is a highly curated community -- so get excited to meet everyone!
Not only will you be connected 2x per week, you will also experience group prenatal centering and education by two of Katelyn’s favorite midwives once each month. What could be better?!
What Do Midwives Think of The HBC?
Listen in to hear Madeline Murray, Homebirth Midwife and Homebirth Mama share her experience working with Katelyn.
RELEASE THE DEEP-ROOTED FEARS. Let’s exit stage left and leave the BS medical paradigm behind. We’re going to learn how and why we must say tah-tah to the unnecessary hold that fear has on our pregnancy and birth, whether we’ve experienced trauma previously or we’ve just grown up in a society that feeds birth fear to us for breakfast.
RECONNECT WITH YOUR INNATE, FEMININE WISDOM. Birth is not a medical event, it’s a sacred feminine transformation. Our ancestors knew it and celebrated it– ceremonized it! In this community, we will be returning to what’s always been- returning to our birth rite and reclaiming it for our children, too. Through easy tools and enjoyable practice, we will reconnect with our intuition, heal our nervous systems *yesssss it’s so related to birth* and set the boundaries needed to keep ourselves at the helm of the birth and motherhood ship.
KNOW THY BODY. Here, I’ll guide you through the science bits. What happens to our body during labor? Why does it happen? What can we do to encourage the hormonal interplay? You’ll walk into labor having all of the milestones and understanding you need to feel like it’s familiar before it’s even begun. We’ll dig into ancestral nutrition, and even the “what if’s” of all-important topics like “what happens if I transport to the hospital?” You’ll be left feeling confident and empowered for whatever is to unfold. Learn the relaxation practices you need to enjoy labor. Labor was a peaceful, enjoyable, EUPHORIC experience for me, and I’ve heard the same from dozens of mothers who have worked with me. Why? When you know how to relax and work with your body, labor stops happening TO you and begins happening WITH and FOR you. You’re an integral part of the experience, Mama, and you can learn to let go and enjoy it fully.

Frankie Gained So Much Confidence and Increased Her Connection With Her Husband
You see, the goal isn't just to give you information. The goal is to support you while you fundamentally transform into motherhood.
You have the ability to achieve an empowered birthing experience by learning to give birth with confidence...
...just like your ancestors have done for all of time.
But what you’ve been doing hasn’t been working and it’s time for that to stop, once and for all.
You’re here reading this page because you’re a homebirth mother who’s SO done with….
- Spending hours & hours everyday trying to find the BEST homebirth resources.
- Doing a ton of birth affirmations, and simply NOT seeing the results you want.
- Trying, reading, learning, and consuming EVERYTHING, like Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth, and The Business of Being Born, yet still feeling really disconnected to the preparation process.
- Being so focused on what your family thinks that you're worried you’ll never find a way to truly feel empowered and confident about your decision.. Maybe waiting is the answer. Spoiler: it’s not.
You’re tired of wasting time, money, and energy on breathing techniques or hypnosis apps that give you ZERO tangible results.
You’re ready for REAL answers. REAL support. REAL community.
Which is why you’re the perfect candidate for The Homebirth Collective.
Because you know what happens when you finally know how to prepare for your empowered homebirth with ease?
- You wake up every morning EXCITED for labor to begin…HOPING it’s today… because you have the wisdom you need to handle it like a PRO. No longer are you fearful of the process that your body will enter– no, no, you see it as the glorious transformation that brings you your baby and ushers you into (or back into) motherhood with power.
- You finally feel the way you WANT to feel because you’re confident in your body and how you relate to it. The confidence you radiate is both physical and spiritual. You understand the purpose of labor, you celebrate it, and you look forward to the lessons that it will hold for you as you transform into a mother.
- You have more time to connect with your husband and any other children now that you’re not STRESSING about what your homebirth will be like. One of the most important things we can do as we prepare to introduce a new baby into our family is to shore up our existing nuclear relationships. With you feeling confident and grounded, you can bet your bottom dollar that you’ll be connecting with your spouse in a deep way you’ve yet to experience so far.
Happy Homebirths No Longer Happen By Accident.
Because we’ve been cut off from the thread of birth experiences of our ancestors, our results will happen because you have followed a system and process to reconnect you; you’ve taken the steps, done the work, and received the help necessary to get where you want to go. Period.
If you’re ready to finally see those results you’ve been wanting, that undulating feeling of peace and empowerment in your birth, let’s do this.I WANT IN THE HBC

"I have had two previous homebirths and already know a lot of the lingo and information, so I wasn't sure how much I would gain, but I was blown away! I picked up so many gold nuggets and was left with a refreshed clear and concise vision for my birth.
Katelyn approaches each topic as if she is explaining it to someone who has never before heard of such concepts. No one gets left behind, so if you're brand new to the idea. of homebirth and have hundreds of questions, you will be left with complete clarity. I cannot even think of one topic she did not cover relating to birth in general."
"There is no amount of hodge-podged free information online that would be equal to purchasing this and getting all of the information you need to know in one place, accompanied with every resource you need. It's worth every penny!"

"I wish I would have had this with my first birth..."
Grace Collins, former client and now Happy Homebirther, shares how working with Katelyn gave her all that she needed to prepare for her beautiful homebirth experience.
"Katelyn has truly compiled the most helpful information you will need for navigating an empowered home birthing experience"
"I was pregnant with my third baby and planning my second home birth. I was a listener of The Happy Homebirth Podcast for quite a while and my previous home birth had been over 2 years past. I did a birth prep course with my first child but I really wanted to refresh my mind, and do something to specifically prepare for this baby and postpartum. [Working with Katelyn] was perfect for me! It was so thorough, reminding me of ways to care for my body and prepare. I learned new things and found valuable resources within the course that really helped me be ready for my “wildcard” third birth. My favorite part of the whole course are the meditation tracks. I depended on them to sleep well through my 2nd and 3rd trimesters, anytime I had a doubt or anxiety Katelyn’s voice brought me back to a mindset of peace and confidence and helped me set my intentions for labor. When my daughter made her VERY quick appearance I had the binaural beats playing the whole time it was a very important tool to keep me grounded for her 3hr labor! I wish I’d had a resource like this with my first birth, Katelyn has truly compiled the most helpful information you will need for navigating an empowered home birthing experience & beyond!"

Emily Catches Her Own Baby During Her First Birth
"Working with Katelyn was helpful in so many ways for preparing me for birth. It provoked questions and things I hadn’t thought about in choosing a provider, laid out the foundation of evidence based prenatal nutrition, explained the process of what happens throughout psychological birth, how to achieve a mindful birth, coping techniques, how to prepare for postpartum & so many things in between! I enjoyed having the videos to watch (& re-watch as many times as I wanted), modules to study and relaxation/affirmation tracks to listen to. Katelyn does a phenomenal job of providing the tools you need for a happy homebirth while also opening topics you may not have thought of that showed me I should dig deeper so I could make all my decisions with true informed consent.I never feared pain as I went into labor, and I was able to catch my own baby!"

The Reluctant Homebirth Mama Experiences an Empowering Homebirth!
I decided to sign up after binge listening to every available HHPodcast episode. (: I was a rather reluctant homebirth convert after having a wonderful labor and birth experience in a birth center with our first baby. Honestly, I think I was just uneducated on midwifery care. Like so many, I did not even know giving birth outside the hospital was an option until I was pregnant and in my twenties!
When our first born turned one we decided it was time to start trying for a second sweet baby. Unfortunately, we suffered two miscarriages in a row and received no support or care from the office (obgyn/CNM combo office) I had my son with. After our miscarriages we moved, I got pregnant again, and found a family practitioner who prescribed progesterone and miraculously this baby kept growing! But, I felt on edge for a lot of the pregnancy. I felt so much less connected to my body & baby than I did with my very first pregnancy. After listening to so many HH episodes and choosing a homebirth (!!) midwife in our new town I knew signing up was the right move. And it was! Going through the course, intentionally meditating on the birth of our daughter, and sitting in that space of preparation gave me the courage to trust my body again. Post-pregnany, labor, and birth I still love listening to the podcast. It's so amazing to hear story after story of empowerment and family responsibility. After experiencing my own homebirth and deep diving into the world of maternal and infant mortality, birth trauma, etc., I'm training as both a doula and birth assistant with the dream of attending midwifery school in the future. That's right... the reluctant homebirther wants to work in home birth. I feel a true calling into this work and honestly, your podcast and your work really brought it all into focus for me. So, thank you.

Jocelin North, Former Client
Before working with Katelyn, Jocelin had experienced a very difficult homebirth turned hospital transport. Her third birth ended successfully at home, but it was not without its own difficulties. Because if what Jocelin had learned through working with Katelyn, she was able to manage these experiences and integrate them into motherhood in a powerful way.
