We train obstetric nurses, birth support figures, and newbies to the field, teaching the integration of verbal coaching methods and hands-on labor support techniques. Coaching enables patient-centered care and builds bridges between all the birth support figures, resulting in healthy & satisfying experiences.
Birth Support Coach - a birth support professional (such as a doula, childbirth educator, prenatal yoga teacher, obstetric nurse or other), trained with well-established coaching strategies, used by coaches in a variety of fields to lead and empower individuals undergoing major life transitions and wanting to create a vision for the next step.
Labor coaches have been around since the early 70s. The practice of coaching individuals in a variety fields of life has also been around for a similar length of time, but until now the two have never crossed paths.
That is, until Birth Coach Method combined them. We took it further and actually introduced coaching to labor coaches.
While working on my new certification course, Coaching for Pregnancy and Birth, I researched studies which will provide the scientific data to support what I already knew – coaching provides the most beneficial strategies to lead expectant couples toward a healthy and satisfying journey of pregnancy, birth and early postpartum.
