About Birth ROCKS

shutterstock_39244498What is the Birth ROCKS concept?

Birth ROCKS® promotes fun, realistic and approachable childbirth and parenting preparation and care for mother and baby.

A concept created by YogaBellies perinatal yoga school founder Cheryl MacDonald and her amazing team of midwives, yoga teachers, hypnobirthers and perinatal massage therapists to produce a programme which can help you experience giving birth as the most amazing experience of your life. Cheryl’s birthing businesses and perinatal yoga teaching have been featured on BBC Two Dragons’ Den and also ITV’s This Morning with Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield. Cheryl has also worked with celebrities such as Kimberley Walsh (of Girls Aloud fame) and Catherine Tyldsley (Coronation Street), using Birth ROCKS birth preparation methods.

Our bespoke programmes are the only childbirth and parentcraft programmes and therapies which are built around YOU and your partners needs. We do not believe that one size fits all and respect the fact that every birth and every baby are unique. We use a range of tools including hypnobirthing, massage, breathing and visualization among others to create the best birth plan for you.

Our Mentors will work with you and your birth partner on a journey of self-discovery, releasing your fears of parenting and birth and understanding your own individual coping and learning styles. Our massage therapists will counsel you on the right perinatal massage therapies and treatments, safe for you and your baby. We help you to create a custom programme that works for YOU.
