Excited to meet your baby, but nervous of the unknown?
We've got you covered!
The lead-up to birth can be a time of many emotions... We're here to help you feel prepared, remove the fear and have your best birth possible!
Hi, I'm Edwina
I know you may be feeling overwhelmed with so much contradicting information... blogs, online resources, friends telling you one thing and your mother in law telling you another.
As an expecting parent, you have so many questions and there is so much uncertainty. I have been there and I totally get it!
It was this experience and 15 years working with women in the birth suite that led me to create Birth Beat. I share everything you need to know and answer your questions all in the one place!
I'm here to take you and your partner from feeling fearful and nervous, to feeling confident and excited for birth and meeting your baby.
From our customers
Birth Beat has revolutionised prenatal classes! Our work makes it difficult for my partner and I to visit a hospital for a weekend face to face session, so having the flexibility to watch the videos/read the material whenever and where ever suits us is invaluable. We can pause and digest the videos and talk about our plans/ideas/concerns whenever we like without disrupting a whole class. Its a very easy to use platform and we're loving learning all we need to know before baby arrives!
My husband and I completed the online Birth Beat program and were very impressed with not only the ease of access and ability to pause, rewind and rewatch, but at also how professional and informative it was. We have just had our beautiful little baby a week ago and went into labour and the start parenthood knowing that we had some of the key foundation knowledge, as well as tips and tricks for labour (which were extremely helpful). I would highly recommend this program to everyone!
Birth beat is a wonderful resource for expecting parents. Edwina is very knowledgeable and offers clear and detailed explanations of every stage of birth. We really found this a useful resource, especially in lockdown where face to face antenatal classes were not available. It's also excellent for busy people because you can fit in a video whenever you have the time and watch modules again if need be. Highly recommend!
The birthbeat course has been incredible. I feel so informed and much more confident about giving birth than I did before I started. I had fear initially and now I feel much more ready to tackle this next step in my pregnancy. Thank you Edwina!
