My Mindful Midwife App

A little bit of calm and presence in your pocket, for whenever you need it.

About the app

Created by award-winning antenatal, hypnobirthing and postnatal course provider, The Mindful Birth Group®, the My Mindful Midwife® app has also won a Made for Mums award for the best pregnancy/birth product category.

Made for Mums said: With all the planning and organising that goes into welcoming a new family member, our testers found the My Mindful Midwife app extremely useful, supportive & versatile. “You can put everything into the app unlike others. I was able to put hospital numbers and midwife contact numbers on and have it with me at all times rather than carrying round my notes,” noted tester Danielle. The app is fully inclusive to all birth preferences and paths to parenthood – users can even switch birth preferences at any time – extremely helpful if you’re still deciding or your circumstances change.

In the words of tester Katy, who was pregnant: “I’m all for any way of promoting positive mental well-being particularly in pregnancy and labour. This app provides great additional support and I would recommend it to friends.”

It is the only pregnancy app that allows you to choose your birth preference (vaginal or abdominal birth) and see information tailored to your preference and due time. If you change your mind at any time during your pregnancy, simply switch your preference on your profile page.

The unique mindful design will help you stay present in each week as you grow your baby and look forward to meeting them with this fully customisable app. All births and paths to pregnancy are supported through the inclusive features, design and language used.

What to expect on the birth-day

Knowledge is power. These informational audios will help to answer many questions you have about early labour or abdominal birth and ensure you feel much calmer and in control (letting oxytocin in and keeping adrenaline at bay).

  • If you are planning an abdominal birth, we will guide you through what happens right from the moment you arrive at hospital on the day, to meeting your baby
