Mindful Birth, Bump & Beyond Course
Congratulations on your pregnancy!
No two pregnancy journeys are the same, and no one can prepare you for what it feels like to become a parent. But we can help you enjoy your pregnancy and even your birth (yes, you read that correctly!) with our Mindful Birth, Bump and Beyond course.
The course combines a comprehensive antenatal course with the magic of hypnobirthing to ensure you have a positive birth experience, and then a postnatal course to prepare you for the practical side and how to look after and care for your baby and yourself in those early days, weeks and months.
The course was created by Emiliana from The Mindful Birth Group and our team here at Komu.
The first of its kind in the world, the course contains a series of video workshops and audio guides from leading, trusted birth, antenatal and postnatal support specialists and Midwives who give not only their professional expertise, but practical tools and information to make sure your journey to meeting and caring for your baby is as positive as it can be.
As well as covering all of the basics we also look at topics that are not generally included in other parenting courses.
