The Pink Kit

The Pink Kit is a home study course which is a skills-based approach to pregnancy and childbirth preparation.

While The Pink Kit does encourage natural birthing skills it’s not touted as a “Natural Birthing” product.

It rather promotes experiencing the best birth you can whatever your choices. This is quite useful because many women, who first thought they would use all drugs necessary during labor, often find they want a natural birth after they have educated themselves a bit about the whole process.

The Pink Kit Method:

  • Used in ALL types of births since 1970s
  • You are not just having a natural or medical birth … you are always having a baby
  • Pregnancy skills to prepare your pregnant body to have a baby
  • Childbirth skills to work with your baby’s efforts to be born”
While some childbirth/labor methods like The Bradley Method or Lamaze seek to achieve more ‘natural birth’. The Pink Kit focuses on the fact 100% of pregnant women will give birth.
Creators of The Pink Kit say all pregnant women should prepare their pregnant body to become a birthing body then learn skills so that no matter how a baby is born the mother and father can always have skills to work with their baby’s efforts.

Testimonials

I bought one of your pink kits a few weeks back. I got about 3/4 of the way through the resource before lending it out to one of my clients. Then I passed it to another one immediately after it was returned. so I haven’t gone through all of it yet. But already it has been miraculous!

A third woman (lower on my list of priorities for lending the kit to, as she was having her fourth baby) went into labour with her baby in LOL position at station -2. To cut a long story shorter, she made good progress then went backwards from 9cm to 5-6c and didn’t seem to be progressing from there.

I wasn’t sure I could remember any of the skills on the pink kit but she and her husband took charge. He told her to lie down and together they did a hip lift between contractions. Immediately she had another one and jumped up and started pushing. I couldn’t believe it. I checked her and the baby had completed rotated to ROA and she was almost fully dilated. Her baby was born 15 minutes later.

After the birth the husband told me that he hadn’t wanted to interfere with my professional skills so he had waited and waited for several hours before suggesting the hip lift. Gosh, that must have been hard for him!

You know what I realized? That when families are skilled we need to encourage them to use their skills rather than appear so professional that they rely on us.

I had three children before I learned about The Pink Kit so I didn’t personally use it. However, when I saw the video, I thought it would have been great to know in all my births. Particularly it would have kept me on track when I wasn’t too keen what the doctors were doing to me in my first birth. My second was born in hospital as well and my third baby was born at home.

I gave the kit to my son and daughter-in-law for their first birth. They didn’t get too involved with it. They felt that their midwife would tell them what to do. She ended up with epidural and forceps. She’s just had her second child (2004) and she was totally committed to the information. The birth was so inspiring that she wants to become a midwife and help other women and men prepare using this information.
