About Us

"Our Vision is to Empower and Inform Women with Expert Pregnancy Advice, Information and Support"
 

Untitled design-99.png


Pip realised that women are not receiving the level of honest, evidence-based birth information they deserve through their pregnancy and from antenatal classes.

Pip has spent many years as a practicing midwife working with women who, despite attending antenatal classes, had not felt prepared for the potential twists and turns that may unfold during labour and birth.

The pregnancy support available for women from trimester 1 to trimester 3 from trimester 1 to trimester 3 should be the very best from navigating symptoms like morning sickness and back pain to what to eat in pregnancy and preparing for birth.

To exercise safely in pregnancy and embrace an active, healthy lifestyle is also a gap that pip is on a mission to bridge to support women to have a healthier, more empowering experience.

Very Best Pregnancy And Postpartum Advice

 

Our dedicated team combines experienced midwifery knowledge with the expertise of our exercise and nutrition scientist to ensure that you receive the very best antenatal education, pregnancy advice and postpartum support to empower you on your journey from conception, through pregnancy and into parenthood.

 

 

Supporting and empowering you through our antenatal classes, pregnancy exercise and nutrition programmes and postnatal support services. We believe that all women should have access to evidence-based information about their health and wellness and this ethos has led Pip to also creating the Pregnancy Wellness Podcast and Blog. This ensures that you receive the best health and pregnancy information in convenient and accessible ways to support a positive and healthy pregnancy experience.

Positive Pregnancy And Birth Experience

Powerful Benefits Of Exercise In Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an ideal time to optimise your health and strongly influence the health of your growing baby. Imagine signing up for a marathon, then sitting on the couch for 9 months- this would not be optimal preparation. Birth is your marathon and pregnancy provides a journey of opportunity to prepare and nourish your body. Working closely together and in partnership with mums and mums-to-be we support you to embrace exercise, adopt a healthy and balanced pregnancy diet and to feel prepared for giving birth and caring for your newborn baby.

Truly grateful for the Your pregnancy journey program and Pip for building/leading the community. Having a really positive friendly and supportive midwife and community in your pocket is invaluable. We felt supported knowing that any questions would get answered, and that many others had been going through the same experience - it was great having likeminded mums to be around particularly with various lockdowns/restrictions over the last year. I wish for all pregnant women to have the support like this to be educated in our bodies, birth and into parenthood

The course was absolutely ideal, with heaps of useful information and reassurance, supported by a very thorough PDF for future reference. Midwife Pip welcomed questions and feedback throughout, and delivered the course in a very relaxed and friendly way. The one thing that really came through was the way Pip explained how everyone should approach the birth in a positive and empowered way, explaining all the choices we could make and assuring everyone that whatever choices we made, the birth would be calm and joyful.

Having Pip by my side throughout my pregnancy and postpartum - even though virtually - was invaluable. I am so glad I took the plunge to join the course, all of the information given was clear and easy to grasp, and gave me the confidence to ultimately have my very positive birth and early days as a mummy to my baby boy. An important investment into undoubtably the most amazing journey you’ll ever take. Thank you Pip x

I took one of Pips courses and it was the first time I felt confident and well informed about all aspects of the birthing process, before this I was so anxious. Midwife Pips support is brilliant, being part of the midwife Pip pregnancy journey and having access to Pip before and after the course has been so invaluable. Thank you!
