Our Midwife Training Vision

Every parent is an individual and birth can feel very daunting to many. The Mindful Birth Group® short course for midwives and student midwives has been designed to support you to learn about the importance of individualised care and incorporate Mindful Birth tools and techniques into your day-to-day care.

We provide antenatal courses to parents and so the midwife-focused 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.
