At the Birth Coaching Company we recognise that one size doesn't fit all. Sometimes we have specific goals that we want to reach or challenges we are endeavouring to overcome. While our birthing classes cover everything you will need to know to achieve a calm, comfortable, empowering birth, they follow a designed format and that may not be what you are looking for at this time. Therefore, we can offer you a personalised road map to birth, one that plans out your personal journey with you and your partner working together with your coach to identify and achieve your goals.

Our aim is to unlock your inner birth goddess, to set you on a path to a positive birth experience, one where you are central to decision making, in control, confident and content.

Our coaches are qualified midwives with many years' experience supporting women and their partners. They know how to help you to define your vision, to motivate and empower you, but most of all they will energise you to take control of your birth process.

We offer personal coaching in ways to suit your lifestyle and budget. Meetings can take place in your home, office, café for tea and a chat – whatever/wherever works best for you.

  • Face to Face
  • Via Skype
  • Telephone support
  • Email support
  • Combination of the above

 

Investment

Face to Face - 1-1 with your coach at a time and place to suit you - one and half hour session is £75

Unlimited email, text and telephone support package - £150 per month

 

Combination package can be negotiated to suit your needs and/or your budget.

We are also happy to discuss postnatal support with home visits at a price to suit your budget. 

 

You will undergo an initial assessment with your coach. Together you will identify your goals, discuss your personal journey and plan your road map to success.

Kayley ' Birth Story

Hi Maureen,

Just an email to inform you of the safe arrival of our gorgeous Rosie. She was born in the women’s on 19th May.
I started with surges Wednesday evening only lasting a few hours and this happened the same time again each evening until Saturday evening when they continued. Saturday evening they started after I had put bobby to bed. I sat and ate some dinner, watched some TV then headed to bed. I slept for a few hours and then got into the bath around 1am. Around 3am we decided to make our way to the hospital.
I was 5 cm when I arrived. My waters hadn’t gone and the midwife thought baby felt back to back. Due to this being the case withy first birth and that taking 17hrs of active labour, I decided not to get into the pool straight away. I spent the next 4/5hours on the ball, walking around the room, up and down the corridors.  Surges started to come thick and fast so I got into the pool and around 1hr30 later Rosie was born in the water which was amazing. She came out so calm, staring straight at myself and Graham. No screaming as we experienced with bobby, she was so content.
Once again, thanks so much for all you guidance. We couldn’t have done it with all your support and vast amount of knowledge!!

The BCC HypnoBirthing course combines an understand of the physiological process – what it means to be a woman - together with self-hypnosis, and the ability to deeply relax and let go. When you birth in an atmosphere of calm relaxation free of fear, your body will release the loving hormone oxytocin, this together with endorphins will ensure a calm, relaxed, enjoyable birth.

I will teach you the rhythm and flow of your body as it journeys through labour, connecting your mind and your body together with your baby, giving you the confidence to birth the way nature intended you to do so. Your birthing partner will be empowered to be part of the birthing process to encourage you, to support you and to advocate for you. This birth belongs to you both, it is your birthing memory that will last a lifetime, it’s my job to make it a happy one.

With HypnoBirthing:

  • You will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony as they were designed to do when your body is sufficiently relaxed and when you trust in yourself and the birthing process;
  • You will learn how to achieve deep relaxation, using your natural birthing instincts for a calm, serene and comfortable birth;
  • You'll learn how to release the fears and anxieties you may currently have about giving birth, and how to overcome previous traumatic births;
  • HypnoBirthing also empowers your birthing partner, giving both parents the confidence, tools and knowledge to experience birth as nature intended;
  • When you have your baby with Hypnobirthing, you will not be in a trance or a sleep. What you will experience is similar to the daydreaming;
  • HypnoBirthing lets you discover and experience the joy and magic of birth;
  • You and your partner will be empowered to remain in control whatever turn your birthing takes;
