How can the Real Birth Company’s Digital Programme help?
Our Real Birth digital programme has provided a solution. The programme combines national and global evidence into an educational birth physiology and birth preparation tool. It has been human translated into several different languages (with more on the way). This means that midwives and obstetricians can use our programme as a digital resource to support conversations. It’s a place where we can reach more women in their own language, where everyone who uses it, can develop a baseline understanding of their body, baby, and choices involved in their care. This means appointments can be better personalised to their specific care needs, supporting the vision from the Better Births review.
Working with NHS Trusts
NHS Trusts are now recognising the value of a digital birth preparation tool for birthing families, in combination with our blended training model for midwives and maternity support workers.
Many hospitals are yet to return to large group antenatal classes since the onset of COVID restrictions, so see our Real Birth digital programme as a way to provide standardised evidence-based, birth physiology and education. Providing a digital tool that women can easily access via their maternity records, enables everyone access to the same information, without adding additional pressures to the already stretched workforce.
The programme is now translated into 7 different languages, with each section available in either text or audio format; perfect for non-English speakers who are often, unintentionally excluded from traditional methods of antenatal education due to language barriers.
Our blended training method seamlessly combines the benefits of both virtual and face to face teaching to get the best of both worlds. This offers the benefits of peer group interaction as well as support from your Real Birth Trainer. Following completion of the course, attendees will become Real Birth Champions within their hospital trusts, enabling them to provide formal antenatal classes in small groups, or on a one to one basis, and to bring their Real Birth knowledge in to their everyday practice to promote a positive birthing environment for birthing women and their families.
But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what one of our recent attendees had to say about it…
“I found the course to be very helpful, it seemed to bridge some of the gap between information at university … and practice in the hospital. The style of reframing the narrative around birth through information and conversation is really important and useful”.
