All journeys to birth are different.
All pregnancies begin with a fertilised egg, but from that moment on, and for each and every woman the path to the arrival of your baby can take different routes.
How does the current care system deal with this ?.... by designing a one size fits all model of care for women designated to be low risk or high risk, swamped in procedures and policies and guidelines, where women feel vulnerable and uncertain about decisions and choices.
The ONLY way to find your own path to the best birth possible is to GET PREPARED.
After all .... it's your body, your baby, your birth.

A Little bit about Linda:
Linda Lilwall is a Private Midwife with over 30 years of experience and has helped welcome over 700 babies into the world.
She has a wealth of experience and is passionate about helping couples understand their choices regarding birth so that they can decide the right options for them.
Her goal is to instil confidence through education and support, so that families are prepared for their birth journey. She believes it is so important that each couple has clear goals and the tools they need for this task.
Feel calm and confident about your birth choices, whilst understanding how they might change, and how to have a positive experience whatever the pathway.
Be in control with clear ideas on how to liaise with your care provider, how to advocate for your birth preferences and how to deal with the unexpected.
Be prepared with practical information, tools and techniques for you and your partner to use. All designed to lead you to a positive experience.
There are huge benefits to this programme. Firstly, you have lots of information from a Midwife that has attended over 700 births.
You can access the videos and workbooks anytime any place via a laptop or tablet and watch as little or as much as you want to, dependent on your energy and concentration levels.
It's one of the most comprehensive programmes available and totally prepares you for everything - NO other classes required.
However, and most importantly it prepares you for the best birth experience possible, whatever the mode of birth.
1. The combination of live classes and recorded videos means you can fit it around your work and life in general. Watch the content at home on the sofa with your partner, or on your lunch break at work. Learn at your own pace and rewatch any videos at any point.
2. This course gives you the important opportunity to discuss your questions, worries, and choices direct with a highly experienced midwife.
With fortnightly antenatal classes, you will have plenty of time to discuss whatever is important to you, without the timed that your NHS midwife is bound by.
3. Whilst in person classes might give you a chance to meet and briefly chat with other couples, The Power of Birth Preparation programme gives you both live access to an online antenatal class each fortnight plus 24 hour access to a members-only support Facebook group, where if you wish you can share your journey and experiences with others.
4. The course is constantly updated as new evidence emerges so it is never behind the times ensuring you get the best information out there .
Upon signing up, you get a unique log in to access your private members area.
You will get immediate access to the video lessons, exercises, worksheets and resources library, together with the private Facebook group.
One of my favourite features is the Mobile Phone App (available on both IOS and Android). You'll be able to access all the content from your phone. You can listen or watch whilst out walking, or sitting waiting for hours for your appointments !!
You can start the course from as early as 12 weeks if you wish. You have 12 months access, so you can go back over the materials time and time again during your pregnancy.
If you're in your 3rd Trimester, don't worry! All the content is readily available so it's perfect if you need to binge-watch and get yourself prepared in a very short time.
The twice monthly live classes are fun and interactive and reinforce the video material. If you can't make the live sessions we will record them so you don't miss thing !
The Power of Birth Preparation programme is normally £197 - currently on offer at £97.
A group face-to-face course with me would cost £345. Not to mention you also get fortnightly live Q&As and bonus material as added bonuses.
Total value is over £500!
However, here at From Bumps 2 Babies it is important that this need to know information is affordable and accessible to all women. We believe everyone should be able to prepare for a positive birth experience.
This is a comprehensive programme that covers all you need for pregnancy and labour. It includes how labour works, how to prepare your mind and how to compile your birth preferences.
The birth preferences section is a lot more detailed than any other course.
In the current pandemic there are no face-to-face classes being held. This course offers you the same and much much more, all from the comfort of your own home.
The beauty of the The Power of Birth Preparation course is that it’s suitable for all. No matter whether it’s your first baby and you’re not even sure what hypnobirthing is, or your third baby is on the way, this course shows you the 3 Powers you have in your possession to achieve a Positive Birth.
The course will show you how to feel totally prepared for the realities of childbirth. Whatever direction your pregnancy, labour and birth takes, you will be able to remain confident and in control.
I promise that by the time you complete this programme you will feel more positive, confident, relaxed and even excited about giving birth!
