Find out your level of readiness in just 2 minutes
You’ve heard the phrase, “It takes a village,” as much as you have because, well--it’s true. Between your growing belly, fluctuating hormones, and pending upheaval of everything you once knew, having a perinatal coach could be a great help. And, here are 5 reasons why!
But, first, what is a perinatal coach?
A perinatal coach or a birth coach is someone who has been formally trained and educated on pregnancy, interventions, childbirth, postpartum topics such as nutrition and breastfeeding, and newborn care.
All perinatal coaches are trained experienced doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants, and infant care specialists. Each professional has completed training programs and the necessary education, exams, and practice. While their experience, expertise, and background vary, they all have at least 3 year of experience working one-on-one with clients.
Why hire a perinatal coach?
#1: Have answers at your fingertips.
Your doctor or midwife is an excellent resource for support during your pregnancy. But you may have noticed that at this point, they aren’t always available for your non-emergency questions. A Birthify Coach is there to answer your day-to-day questions. Depending on what plan you choose, you could have weekly or daily access to your coach.
#2: Get matched with a coach based on your needs.
Instead of scrolling Yelp or searching online groups trying to find a local referral, Birthify offers a simple test that takes less than 10 minutes to complete. After answering some specific questions about you and your preferences, we will match you with a coach within a day!
#3: It works with YOUR schedule.
Having a Birthify coach was designed with the worker bees and the homebodies in mind. We never want your pregnancy to take a back seat, so we created a system that allows you to communicate with your coach in 4 convenient ways: text messages, live chatting, phone calls, and video calls. You can choose any one of these forms of communication depending on your needs that day.
#4: Labor Support
You will have the option to add on labor support to your already existing plan. What is unique about Birthify Coaches is that they are entirely virtual. This way, you get to maintain the intimacy of your birth experience while having access to your birth coach via phone or text.
#5: Postpartum Support
If you’re seeking support after your pregnancy, you will likely have to hire a separate postpartum doula or coach. At Birthify, your one coach does it all! You deserve consistency, and having one coach from pregnancy up to 8 weeks postpartum allows you to take the guesswork out of who will look out for your family after your baby arrives.
If you’re someone who finds comfort in the knowledge, who wants to know the ins and outs of the birth and postpartum experience from someone who has witnessed it many times, then hiring a Birthify coach is the right move for you!
You deserve to be intimately supported through this most transformational time in your life. Get matched now with a dedicated virtual coach ready with answers for your late nights, early mornings, and every question in between.
