Go Verbal and Virtual, Gain impact and Cultivate Long-Term Relationships with YOUR Clients

This training was fantastic. It gave me weekly opportunities to practice and receive coaching from Neri and a global and compassionate community of perinatal professionals, both those starting out in their careers and those who have been working in their fields for decades. Bolstered by this community, I feel ready and confident to begin coaching and partnering with families to help them obtain their desired birth and postpartum experiences.

Transformational Birth Coaching is a program designed to enrich birth support figures of all types: doulas, childbirth educators, prenatal yoga teachers, and everyone else who supports expectant couples with coaching tools and strategies. These are the same strategies coaches practice in various coaching fields to lead their clients to perform optimally in the area in which they are being coached.

Once you begin implementing the coaching strategies and skills into your birth support practice, you’ll achieve better results when leading expectant parents to confidently navigate themselves through the experience of pregnancy and childbirth. Patient-centered care, patient autonomy, informed consent, patient accountability, and increased rates of vaginal deliveries can all be achieved by integrating coaching into childbirth support.

I am so very grateful that I decided to take Neri’s Transformational Birth Coach Training. With over 20 years in practice as a successful birth doula, I discovered new ways of connecting with and assisting my clients to gain greater clarity of vision. From that vantage point comes the determination to actively prepare for and have the birth experience most important to them.
