Birth ROCKS Academy have joined forces with the leading women (and men!) in the world of all things pregnancy, childbirth, parenting and baby. We aim to bring you a range of informative interviews giving the perspectives of these amazing individuals on their views and advice on the things that matter to parents and birth professionals alike.
Why are the BRA TALK interviews awesome?
The great thing about our interviews is that what we ask is relevant to both parents AND birth professionals. These inspirational women are sharing their personal perspectives and offering advice to YOU as a mother and/or a birth professional.
What we ask the experts:
- What is their role in the birth community and why is it so important?
- What are their tops tips for pregnancy and childbirth?
- What is the most important piece of advice they would give to a new mum?
- What is their personal birth philosophy and why?
- What are their thoughts on preparing for childbirth?
- Their top tips for getting back to work after giving birth and working around your family?
How many interviews will there be and how often are they released?
We will release a new BRA Birth Expert interview twice a week between November 2014 and Jan 2015. These interviews will be on our blog forever though so please feel free to read and share them as often as you like.
