Questions?

When are my sessions and will they fit my schedule?

Answer +

close -

After you sign up, we'll do a matching session with you to get to know your goals, preferences, and schedule! We have plenty of options and will find a group that fits your schedule.

Who is in my group and how do I get matched?

Answer +

close -

Seven Starling groups are built to create lasting connections. Your group includes ~7 other parents with a similar due date as you. We also take a number of other factors into account, including your goals, preferences, and more! After you sign up, we'll do a matching session with you to get to know you and match you with a great expert and group.

Who will my expert be?

Answer +

close -

After you sign up for Seven Starling, we'll do a 1:1 matching session with you so we can get to know you and match you with an expert Doula that will help you achieve your goals. All Seven Starling experts are experienced Doulas and most are also Childbirth Educators (& more!).

When should I start my membership?

Answer +

close -

Get started as early as 8 weeks into your pregnancy and as late as 3 months into postpartum. Your expert will tailor your program to the stage you're at and support you up to 1 year into parenthood (& growing!).

Does a Seven Starling membership replace Childbirth Education classes?

Answer +

close -

Yes! Our memberships cover all of the core childbirth education topics, including stages of labor, pain management options, what to bring to the hospital, and more. Our curriculum is OBGYN-approved and designed to help you feel prepared and confident, going beyond traditional childbirth ed to cover topics like newborn safety, pelvic floor strength, and the emotional and physical changes that accompany pregnancy and early parenthood.

I've already had my baby, is a Seven Starling membership right for me?

Answer +

close -

Absolutely! Postpartum is when $#!+ gets real and you'll need support more than ever. Join Seven Starling anytime up to 3 months after your delivery and get expert support continuing up to 1 year+. Meet bi-weekly with your expert and small group and get content designed specifically for your stage (think feeding, sleeping, mental health, or just having some space to vent!).

What if I can't make it to one of my live sessions?

Answer +

close -

The foundation of Seven Starling is the small group experience, so we highly encourage you to attend your live sessions if you can! That said, we know life gets in the way. Your program is full of lessons, video learnings, and exercises to help you catch up if you miss a session. And, your dedicated expert is always there via chat for questions you have!

Can my partner join my sessions?

Answer +

close -

We love to involve partners and will let you know which sessions are best for them to join. We design specific sessions around conversations where we think it's important for partners to attend (your expert will remind you when those are!).

What happens after I sign up for a membership?

Answer +

close -

Welcome! We're so excited to have you. Once you've signed up for a membership, we'll schedule a call to match you with your expert and small group. Matching is done by hand to make sure you have the perfect experience. You'll then meet with your expert Doula one on one to get to know each other and then will join your small group sessions every other week. You'll also receive access to the Seven Starling app right away, so you can start diving in to content relevant to your stage.

Can I switch groups if my schedule changes or its not a fit?

Answer +

close -

Life happens - we get it! If you are no longer able to make your group's scheduled sessions, reach out to us at support@sevenstarling.com and we'll work to match you with another group.
