As a value guide, the cost of a full course and use of these benefits from 20 weeks of pregnancy would be valued at approximately £850*, if purchased as individual services.

The earlier a parent signs up (from 12 weeks is recommended) the sooner they can make use of the additional benefits. However, we have many parents joining us from 30 weeks onwards, as there is so much to gain for those later weeks of pregnancy and postnatally too!

*Please see FAQ’s at the bottom of the page for a full breakdown of this estimated cost.

FAQs

I'm thinking about taking a hypnobirthing course and booking NCT, do I need to this as well?

We are very proud to say that our packages really are a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all of your preparation and support needs. So many of our past clients have said they wished they had just signed up to a Mindful Birth package, as they learned everything and more with us vs. taking multiple courses. We include the evidence-based education and invaluable relaxation techniques, which can be applied to all birth scenarios. That really is the beauty of mindfulness. If you take a group course, you will also meet others due at a similar time to you, and don’t forget our online, moderated community too!

Can I pay in instalments?

Yes, we have partnered with Klarna for a ‘buy now, pay later’ option or Clear Pay for a ‘pay in 4 instalments’ option. You then have the flexibility to pay the instalments off earlier, if you would like to.

You can also pay in one payment too.

I'm 30+ weeks already, is there any point in joining?

Yes, absolutely! You would still have a number of weekly pregnancy yoga sessions to make the most of, which are so great for those final weeks to stretch and release tension in the body. You would also have access to the monthly relaxation session too… again SO good for those final weeks!

Don’t forget that the online communities are tailored to different paths to parenthood and pregnancy situations too- so having access to those to meet people and ask questions will be invaluable at any stage of your pregnancy too.

For after the birth, there are SO many benefits! Including:

  • Educational baby care videos including breast and bottle feeding, baby sleep, baby carriers, day to day baby care (think nappies, dressing them and practical things to consider!), choosing childcare and finally, weaning.
  • 1 hour postnatal doula session on Zoom, taken in the 4th trimester
  • Weekly LIVE Parent & Baby yoga sessions on Zoom
  • Moderated & safe online community. Chat about general pregnancy, birth or postnatal related topics or join spaces that connect you with parents on a similar path to you.

So yes, even if you are squeezing your course in at 34 weeks…. you will still have SO much to gain from joining The Mindful Birth Group.

How do you estimate the package to be worth £850?

The breakdown of the estimated £850 value of the package is based on someone signing up at 20 weeks of pregnancy and attending an in-person group course:

  • Mindful Birth Course- £384
  • 20 pregnancy yoga sessions- £160 (£8 per session)
  • 10 parent and baby sessions – £80 (£8 per session)
  • 5 pregnancy relaxation sessions £35 (£7 per session)
  • 1 hours postnatal doula session- £25
  • Educational video content, moderated online community membership + ask the midwife online group as a membership fee-  £166 (approx £21 per month for 8 months)
This could be worth well over £1000 if someone joined earlier, of course!
What if I need to change course dates? It's a long way away!

It’s absolutely fine to change course dates or venue (if you are moving house, for example). We just ask for as much notice as possible, with a minimum of 4 weeks notice ahead of the course starting so we can offer the space to another parent. If you need to cancel your place within the 2 weeks of the course starting,  we may have to charge £200 IF we cannot fill the space and you would like to take the course at another time/location. This is to ensure our teachers are not out of pocket with last minute cancellations. We do always take every situation in account though, so please get in touch with your teacher as soon as you know there is a problem with making your course dates.

If your 1st choice of course format is not available in your new location / new date preference, we will always offer you a suitable Zoom course option.

What topics are covered in the baby-care learning videos?

We’ve included the topics that we know parents find really helpful to have a heads up on ahead of the birth, and then return back to once baby is born too:

  • Baby feeding, with Kathryn Stagg IBCLC
  • Baby Sleep, with Lucy Smith from Days and Dreams Sleep Consultancy
  • Baby changing and practical things to think about for bringing baby home, with Mindful Birth doulas
  • Calming holds and baby wearing, with Mindful Birth doulas
  • Choosing childcare
  • Baby weaning

 

What if something happens to my baby?

This is not something that anyone wants to think about, but we do because it is our duty to look after expectant parents, whatever happens. We will always offer a full refund and support anyone who tragically experiences a loss. We partner with Teddy’s Wish and Bereavement Training International to ensure all Mindful Birth teachers are knowledge about baby loss and supporting families.
