The Real Birth Training Programme helps provide, midwives, doulas, student midwives and childbirth educators, with the knowledge and skills in sharing information that supports choice. With the aim of helping women and their birth partners, learn about birth physiology and labour. Using current evidenced-based information, combined with a holistic approach to maternity care, you will learn how to combine these two approaches, resulting in imparting information that supports physiology and promotes choice.
This involves looking at current day attitudes to pregnancy and birth, the psychology of birth for today’s pregnant women, and helping to encourage women to become involved in decision making through empowering them, whilst creating a positive class-learning environment.
Amongst learning about how to impart this positive birth physiology class, you will learn how the negative language used in childbirth creates confirmation of inner doubts and subconscious belief. You will also learn about the effect of using positive birth language, and how it can help.
This programme is designed to help promote a positive birth experience for women irrespective of birthing choices; irrespective of care pathways and helping women understand the process of birth. Mainly it’s about having fun and encouraging women to take control of their birthing experiences.
