What If You Could Go Into Your Birth
Feeling KNOWLEDGEABLE, Prepared, Confident, And Empowered?
Fears about giving birth are TOTALLY NORMAL.
Your mom had them. Your friends had them. I had them and I'm an ob/gyn physician!
You may not know what to expect during labor and delivery and that can be scary. It's easy to get confused by all the different birth stories from well-meaning friends and family. It's hard to know what's normal or what's “right”.
I'm Dr. Nicole Calloway Rankins and my goal is to ensure that you feel knowledgeable, prepared, confident, and empowered on of one of the most important days of your life - your baby's birth day.
View the short video below and let me explain how I can help.

Hi there! I'm Nicole - a wife, mother to 2 girls, OB/GYN Physician and Certified Integrative Health Coach. My passion is providing respectful, holistic, evidence-based resources to help you have a healthy birth and healthy life.
I've been in practice for over 10 years and I created The Birth Preparation Course after seeing so many women look for resources to help them get ready for birth. Before I created the course, I conducted surveys and spoke with pregnant women to be sure I included the information they wanted in a childbirth education course. After the course was done I tested the material to be sure the course met their needs. I’m proud of the result - a convenient, comprehensive, evidence-based course to help you feel knowledgeable, prepared, confident, and empowered going into your birth.
It is a great privilege for me to help women through childbirth, and I’m so excited to share my knowledge and expertise with you during your pregnancy and childbirth journey. I hope to see you inside the course!
