Birth Coaching Calls


Birth Coaching Calls are one-on-one phone or video calls with a certified birth coach. They are a great way to get personalized support and guidance throughout your pregnancy, labor, and postpartum period.

During birth coaching calls, you can talk to your coach about anything you need, including:

  • Your fears and anxieties about childbirth
  • Your birth preferences and goals
  • How to cope with pain and discomfort
  • Positioning and comfort techniques
  • Breathing exercises and relaxation techniques
  • How to communicate with your partner and care providers
  • Postpartum planning and support

Your birth coach can also provide you with evidence-based information about childbirth and help you make informed decisions about your care.

Birth coaching calls can be especially helpful for people who:

  • Are first-time parents
  • Have had a previous negative birth experience
  • Have a high-risk pregnancy
  • Are planning to have a home birth or birth center birth
  • Have specific birth preferences or goals
  • Simply want to feel more confident and prepared for childbirth

Birth coaching calls are typically offered on a one-on-one basis, but some coaches also offer group coaching calls. The number of calls you need will vary depending on your individual needs and goals.

If you are considering hiring a birth coach, I recommend interviewing several different coaches to find one who is a good fit for you and your family. You should also ask about their training and experience, as well as their philosophy on childbirth.
