Writing Your Birth Story Course for Birthworkers

Birthworkers, Give Your Clients A Lifelong Gift

As a birth professional, you know how much birth stories matter—and how important it is for people to memorialize and process their births.  My easy, trauma-informed method will give your clients an easy, effective way to do just that.  It’s called the Writing Your Birth Story Course! 

If you’re a doula (birth, postpartum, or full-spectrum), midwife, or other birth professional, set yourself and your practice apart by offering the Writing Your Birth Story Course as part of your service packages.

"I highly recommend the Writing Your Birth Story course! This course goes well beyond providing you with a helpful foundation and questions to unlock your story. You're supplied with resources and tools to tell your story and process through all you experienced. If you've wanted to write your birth story but didn't know where to start, take this course today! "

My Story

I’m Carrie Murphy, a professional writer and experienced doula

I have an MFA in Creative Writing, am the author of two full-length books of poetry, and have published dozens of articles about pregnancy and birth in national publications like ELLE, Women’s Health, Parents, and more. 

But when I sat down to write my own story after my son’s birth in 2018, I didn’t know how to start. I’d been steeped in both writing and birth for years, but tackling my own story felt overwhelming. I wanted to capture the power of my experience and get it exactly right, for both me and my baby.

I knew other parents were struggling with the same feelings—wanting to write a great birth story for themselves and their families, but confused, time-strapped, or  just plain stuck on how to get going or how to do the experience justice.

So, the How To Write Your Birth Story course was born!

I combine my experience as a doula and background in creative writing in a simple, streamlined process that helps birthing people find and express the truth of their experiences. 

"Every detail of the course has been intentionally laid out to consider the variety of experiences people have from conception into parenthood. The thoughtful prompts are inclusive of folks of a variety of identities, family structures, and birth outcomes —and you don't need to be a strong writer to make use of them. As a birth professional, I am excited to offer this course to my clients, and to have another tool in my toolbox for providing extended, substantial, meaningful support to those I serve."​

The Course Includes:

✔️ 9 writing exercises designed to get you in touch with the truth of your birth

✔️ 70+ questions/prompts

✔️ 40+ examples of birth stories to read as inspiration

✔️ Options and suggestions to make sure your writing feels like you—not a template

✔️ Grounding and centering practices to get you in the mindset for writing 

✔️ Information on and resources for birth trauma

✔️ Ideas on how to share and memorialize your birth story forever

If you’re ready to buy, scroll to the bottom and get started! If you want to try the course yourself, contact me and I’ll give you access for a free seven day trial. From there, you can pick your packages ($99 for a year of unlimited clients or $299 for lifetime of unlimited clients). Once we’re squared away, I will make a 100% off code for your practice and email it to you. You give your clients the code and ta-da! They sign up for the course on my website whenever they’re ready. Totally easy, but a truly lasting gift.

"This class helped me unpack my experiences from an emergency C-section, and process my memories and emotions. It's self-paced so you can work on it any time. It’s full of good ideas (such as requesting your medical records). The course is encouraging, full of resources, and ultimately, a meaningful and healing experience."


Yes! I offer a free seven-day trial of the course. If you want to try it before buying, email me at and I will give you free access. At the end of the seven days, your access will expire and you can choose whether to buy or not.

I make a 100% off code that is specific to your practice. You send it to your clients, then they use it to register on my website. 

As many clients as you serve for the period in which you buy: either yearly or lifetime.

Of course! There is no one-size-fits-all for birth.

Yes! The pricing below is meant for individual birthworkers or birthworkers who work in partnerships. If you are part of a group practice, agency, collective or even a certifying organization or nonprofit, please email me at for pricing. 

No, I won’t. I hate that just as much as you do, seriously! I will probably send occasional emails, especially if I start offering new courses or other services over time. But you definitely won’t be getting numerous spam-y marketing emails. I promise!

They will have lifetime access!

Yes! Request your money back within 14 days to receive a full refund, no questions asked.


Yes! I donate 15% of proceeds quarterly to a BIPOC-led and centered birth cause, group, org, or person. For the rest of 2022, I’ll be donating to Birthmark, a birth justice collective in New Orleans I used to be a member doula of! 

If you’d like to work together on a fundraiser using the course, I’m always happy to hear ideas!
