Training for Health Care Professionals

Continuing your professional development with The Mindful Birth Group® is so much more than gaining CPD points; although these are available! We support you to support your parent patients in a way that they will remember for life, and not just the birth.

Our HCP vision

Every parent is an individual and birth can feel very daunting to many. The Mindful Birth Group® HCP course has been designed to support midwives and other pregnancy/birth related HCP’s to learn about the importance of inclusivity and incorporate Mindful Birth tools and techniques into their day-to-day care.

We provide antenatal courses to parents and so the HCP course aims to align both parent and care-giver approaches to birth.

These simple but effective tools can make an incredible difference to a parents’ birthing experience, which in turn, could impact their postnatal recovery and the rest of their lives.
