What makes us different?
The Mindful Birth Group® course has been created by our founder Emiliana who experienced outdated birth preparation courses for herself as she prepared for her own home births and a planned abdominal birth as a surrogate.
Emiliana is also a birth and postnatal doula, and has supported families with birth preparation and at induced, birth centre, labour ward, abdominal and home births. You name it, Emiliana has been by the sides of parents navigating their fears, hopes and preferences within the current NHS and private healthcare systems.
Because of this extensive experience and spending time with families ‘in real-birth-time’, Emiliana has seen first-hand that there is a great need for an all-births inclusive course that educates, supports and empowers people with their options and supports them in their choices.
The teacher training course includes in-depth sessions with external partners such as TransParent, Teddy’s Wish the Baby Loss Charity, Black Mothers Matter, Birth Rights and more.
Having been a surrogate too, Emiliana is well aware that different paths-to-parenthood are simply not catered for in the antenatal education/support world. So this is another area that makes us unique in what we do, and how we do it.

Emiliana continues to provide support as a doula and teaches Mindful birth courses alongside an incredibly passionate team of teachers across the UK. They are what make the Mindful Birth approach travel as far as it does, and we appreciate every single one of them for all of their hard work and dedication.
