You wait for the time in your life when you’re ready to “start trying” with so much excitement and anticipation. You then start trying and obsessively pee on sticks desperate for the moment where the 2 pink lines scream out PREGNANT!! You then sit on tender hooks til the 12 week scan… 20 week scan… the milestones start ticking by, the weeks creeping past. You then start to think. I’ve got to birth this baby. I’ve then also got to make sure that they are fed and watered and looked after!
You want your birth to be great. You’re fed up of people asking you if you’re scared or telling you that birth is awful. And you’re not talking about birthing in a meadow with flowers in your hair. You just want to not feel out of control or out of your depth.
Beth and her team from The Bump to Baby Chapter are midwives. That’s what makes over here so different from the rest. We work in Gloucester Royal hospital so we’re catching babies weekly or looking after mothers and newborns on the maternity ward.
TBTBC was created for couples who know that knowledge is power over ignorance is bliss.
Just imagine this… You’ve just given birth. You have your newborn in your arms and you feel amazing. You knew what was going on, you made choices, you felt totally ready for birth. You and your partner knew what to do to make it a great experience.
This moment you will look back on in your life FOREVER (more so than your type of buggy or the colour of your nursery). Birth matters.
The problem is not that you don’t have the access to information, you can pretty much google anything these days. You want to know the RIGHT information. You want to know what is real about birth and not sugar coated or made to be dramatic or nightmareish.
We want to make you feel ready for birth without sitting in a circle rubbing each others backs or practising different birth positions.
We will give you information you ought to know about birth, baby and life as new parents right when you need it.
A course, focussed on birth techniques. It will change your perception on birth to one where you will actually be excited for labour. It focuses on how to have a positive birth for all types of births, although hypnobirthing does reduce the chances of intervention. It is for those ladies who want to feel in control, who want to make informed choices and have confidence in what’s going on.
If you are a first time mother, then book both antenatal classes and hypnobirthing (use code hypno30 at checkout). If you are a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th… time mother than this is the course for you.
What TBTBC couples have to say…
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Beth and her amazing @thebumptobabychapter classes! Both myself and Alex thoroughly enjoyed every session; for Beth’s never ending knowledge on everything labour and baby related, her total honesty that made the scary bits weirdly not seem so scary anymore; and her general funny and welcoming attitude we were genuinely sad when our sessions came to an end as they had been the highlight of our week
I want to say a huge thank you to Beth .. In December Joe and I attended one of Beth’s Hypnobirthing classes for the day. I can honestly say she gave me so much confidence, assurance and determination around the whole aspect of giving birth. When we left the class even Joe said “I’m so glad we went to that, I now know my role as a birthing partner”. That alone stayed with me leading up to the birth.
Kirstie and I wanted to say a massive thank you as we found the classes extremely useful, informative and good fun. Having not read any books or done any other research I felt as prepared as you can be going into labour following our BTB classes. Learning about the different pain relief options was great and meant I could make the decision to only have gas and air easily and knew not to start using it until I’d stopped being sick!! I did end up in theatre for a c section but knowing how many people to expect and what position to be in for the spinal really helped! Thank you Mia & Beth!
