Transformational Birth Coaching!

Learn game-changing coaching strategies that lay the foundation to YOUR impactful and successful birth support practice

We're Here to Transform Birth Support 

Our year-long program offers an immersive, mentorship-based learning experience to help you make the most of your birth support practice and meet your professional goals. You’ll participate in group and one-on-one training sessions, and learn how to lead a transformative prenatal coaching process that has a ripple effect to transform your clients as people and parents. 

The home study modules give you access to proven strategies, exclusive training videos, workbooks, and more. At your own pace & at your own time, you can learn the easy-to-implement approach for growing supporting and leading expectant individuals to stand in their power and have their desired birth experience. 

  • Do you wish to get more clients and reduce the hardship in your birth support practice? 

  • Do you wish for strategies with which you can elicit birth clients' accountability and ownership of their experiences?  

  • Do you wish to increase the rates of clients' who stand in their power and manage to actualize their desired birth experience?

  • Do you wish to witness your clients as they confidently hold strong convictions about what's right for them and practice self-advocacy?

  • Do you wish to avoid being burnt out by attending long hours of continuous labor support?  

You are not alone. Your professional goals are achievable! After practicing birth support for 24 years, I felt the same. I discovered the disconnect in my practice and decided it is time to pivot! Many birth support pros feel that it is time to advance the philosophy and the practices so that they resonate with the current generations of birth givers. Shifting the focus to prenatal coaching allows professionals to gain impact, work-life balance, and good income.

Transformational Birth Coaching is a year-long membership certificate program. We train you with a new set of coaching strategies and exercises with which you'll coach expectant and new parents in a series of prenatal/postpartum coaching sessions. Engage your clients in powerful conversations and exercises during a series of in-person or virtual coaching sessions. Lead your clients to become experts in their own lives and actualize their desired experiences.

Fulfill your destiny. Integrate coaching into birth support

This class has been eye-opening and I just want to let you know I so appreciate you and this course! This method is the game changer I've been looking for. Sometimes you don't know what's missing until you find it! I will tell all my doula friends about this class! Thank you

Fulfill your destiny. Integrate coaching into birth support

Why Integrate Coaching into Birth Support? 

Coaches are leaders that bring individuals closer to achieving their goals. By facilitating clarity and providing clients with the strategies to confidently overcome challenges, limiting beliefs, and internal resistances, coaches help create the mindset needed for success. This sounds perfect for childbirth, right?

Indeed, the healthcare system already recognizes the value of coaching and collaborates with health and lifestyle coaches.

With the practicality of coaching tools and exercises, you can create a powerful shift in your clients’ perspectives. You'll help birthing individuals and their families feel confident and take charge of the birthing process. When you reveal THEIR WAY they'll take charge of THEIR BIRTH."

Women's satisfaction has more to do with the way they conduct themselves and the way they are treated than with the actual clinical features of their labor

What Students Are Saying

"I can hardly believe I’ve been a doula for as long as I have without using this method. There was a disconnect between what my clients were telling me they wanted and the choices they ultimately made in regard to their birth experience. This method has helped me better understand, connect with, and empower my clients to align what they believe with what they want and ultimately lead them to achieve those goals."

Laura Browning, Kentucky USA

Neri has been invaluable in the progress of my career, as a Birth Coach. As a doula & childbirth educator, I have learned to look at working with clients, with a different perspective that allows them to trust themselves, their ideas, their bodies, as well as them having a positive birth experience. Thank you Neri for all the strategies you have shared, and I cannot wait to kick off my Birth Coaching practice! Best regards, 

Shereen Zarroug, CD, Dubai, UAE

"The course itself is transformational. I feel changed deeply by what I have learned. The Zoom discussions were very engaging. The assignments and the interactions fostered tremendous growth for me. I highly recommend this course for any type of birth professional.

 

SHOSHANA SLOMAN, Behavior Change & Stress Management

"...Creating accountability - rather than be the doula-rescuer when things don't go as plan. Letting clients find their own answers, take ownership and advocate for themselves will set them upon a path for life, as people and parents, while meeting them where they are. (Not to mention, it really helps with - preventing - doula burn-out.)

 

 

Bertine van Norden-Attia, Nederland

"This course has been a turning point for me in so many ways.  I am grateful that I listened to my instinct in seeking out this course because it has completely shifted how I view birth support and my role. I can’t even count all the times I wanted to support my clients but didn’t know how to “make them” see their vision through. I now have all the tools I never was given to help their vision align with their actions. This is pure magic. Thank you for birthing this idea and this course."

Megan Elizabeth Sweetman, California USA

"I can see clearly now that my doula clients get in tune with their own inner wisdom when I ask them questions instead of giving suggestions. It is so beautiful to see how empowering that is for the woman; that she carries the answer inside of her. Though I know a lot about pregnancy & birth, she is the one who knows her body, her values and her baby best. I love that I can support her in making decisions that align with her heart..."

Christine Olsen, Sweden

"…“Neri, when you said that our coachees won't need us for their birth, I'm a bit shocked that I'm actually feeling a little left out when they get all empowered and birthed without their doula around. I just had my 2nd client's birth (after getting certified as a Transformational Birth Coach) last night, and just like my client before her, both of them birthed without me! #BirthCoachMethod works!”

Nur Hafiza, CD, Qatar

"This course transformed me as a person. I use coaching questions with my children, with my husband, with my friends, with my clients. I realized that people know what is best for them and they don’t want me to tell them what to do. Instead, they need someone to coach them in the direction they wish to go, listen to them, and be interested in them."

Dimitra Tsagkaraki, Cypress

"Throughout the Birth Coach Training, Neri presented concepts and ideas that I will be able to utilize to bring new life to my work as a doula. Week by week she brought forward new tools and skills and gave us all the opportunity to jump in and use them to address real-life scenarios. I learned from Neri, and by listening to each of the participants. I am looking forward to completing the process and becoming a certified Birth Support Coach."

Joanne Dahill, USA

"This course has given me the space to become curious about my own expectations as a doula and it has helped me to define my role for my clients more specifically. I have learned critical techniques in the way I listen to and question clients which helps the client discover how to express their desires more clearly. This course will challenge every doula to think more critically about their role resulting in a more comprehensive client-centered birth coaching process."
