Why are there different price options?
Every birthing person matters and every birth matters. We believe that equality is important and that high quality support, tools and evidence based information should be available to every birthing person, therefore we've offered different prices so you can choose the one that works for you. Through our work we support charities, other women and mother-led businesses and the cost of doing this means that the course is £30. However we know this isn't always comfortable, so please choose the price that works for you, no questions asked. We know that having a baby can be a time of expense and often we put our own needs towards bottom of the spending pile, so we want to remove any barriers to you having tools to support yourself and your birth. Our courses are charged as we believe women's work, expertise & time has value. Women supporting women and feeling confident about exchanging money is part of raising the status and value of women, birthers and birth through society but we can do it with heart & compassion.

This course has been thoughtfully designed to put you at the emotional and physical centre of your birth. Birth happens in a few moments but it's experience echoes on for a lifetime so giving ourselves tools to enjoy the experience is important for us, our babies and our families.

This course is for everyone and every birth. Slot it alongside any other education, hypnobirthing or antenatal preparation you may be taking, its's an affordable and easy extra in your birthing toolkit.
