About Us


The Real Birth Company is passionate and committed to promoting understanding of birth and choice. We are very proud of our nationally accredited training programme for Midwives and our Antenatal Programme for women and their birth partners.

Established in 2017 by Zoe Wright, a registered practicing midwife, specialising in antenatal education and birth trauma, the Real Birth Company is working towards the training and development of antenatal education and teachers in the UK and across the globe.

The Real Birth Workshop is currently taught and available in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, India and United Arab Emirates.

The studio is located in Hereford England feel free to drop by for a chat.

Our objective is to support pregnant women and people who access all maternity services and the midwives, doulas and antenatal teachers who support them.


Providing evidence based and holistic information that is factual, open and offers choice. Alongside and complimenting this programme we have created the first multi-lingual antenatal digital birth physiology workshop which supports our use of non- threatening language, factual information and positive birth message helping to normalise birth and reduce fear for women of all nationalities and backgrounds.

Our Ethos

Fear of birth is very common. Our goal is to help pregnant women and people and their birth partners feel relaxed, and even excited, about the birth process.

We believe that every expecting parent should be able to access positive birth information and guidance. Our antenatal class is designed to do exactly that.

We want every birth experience to be positive, for every type of birth.

How we do this…

….To do this we believe that confident, skilled and passionate teachers are the key.

Our unique antenatal class is called The Real Birth Workshop. This antenatal class is designed to support and empower pregnant women and people through the incredible journey of pregnancy and birth. Knowledge about our bodies and how we birth our babies is a hugely powerful way to stay in control of our births. Feeling empowered and knowledgeable can build confidence and help people feel more relaxed about birth and supporting someone in labour.

To help share the Real Birth Workshop with pregnant women and people and their birth partners, we train midwives, doulas and other birth professionals in the Real Birth Programme.

The Real Birth Company has a highly renowned international reputation for bringing balanced evidence together with the holistic needs of pregnant women and people at the heart of its teaching. We have a world class reputation for offering the highest standard of antenatal education, assisting pregnant women and people to understand how the mechanics of labour work and the interaction of the endocrine (hormonal) system in pregnancy and labour. This information is vital to understanding how to make decisions in labour which can affect the outcome of birth.

We have amazing feedback from birth partners regarding the depth of knowledge that it is provided to help them support their partner in labour. This is a great support to women and also midwives caring for them in labour.

Our training programme is kept fully up to date with the latest research and evidence on birth so that you can be assured that the information we are sharing is the best evidence possible. To do this, we update our programme and teachers each time updates and new evidence is released that may affect thoughts surrounding birth physiology or care.

To reach as many pregnant women and people as we can, we have developed two ways of sharing this information. These are through our face to face taught classes and through our online workshop.

It was clear to us that we needed somewhere relaxing to complement our positive birth ethos. That was when The Real Birth Studio was born. The Studio is where a lot of the magic happens! We run courses, classes and support groups from here.

The Real Birth Teachers are the heart of our work, we want to support teachers as much as we can, so they can support the women in the areas they work in confidently.
