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 multi-lingual e-learning antenatal education programme.
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.
