Teacher training

When you train to teach with The Mindful Birth Group, you are doing so much more than just providing an antenatal course to parents.

The Ethos of Mindful Birth Courses

First and foremost, Mindful Birth courses are about educating parents on their options to navigate birth and empowering them to make the right choices for their individual circumstances. We then support them to support their own mind and body throughout the process.

 

This is what we call the Mindful Birth power of 3…
