What is a birth coach? Coaching is client-led and allows for self-discovery. Each session is different and offers time for reflection and goal setting. There is no structured process as it is unique to each individual.
What are common topics for coaching conversations? We have discussed everything from birth prep to postpartum planning. Other topics include preparing for multiples, fertility concerns, bedrest planning, mapping out birth goals, assembling a support team, and communicating your plan to family and friends.
How is this coaching different from doula support? Gold Coast also offers hands-on birth and postpartum doula support. The coach clarifies goals and the doula’s role offers physical, emotional, and informational support. You can work with both a doula and a birth coach. Think of it like the difference between a therapist and a life coach.
When is the best time to hire a birth coach? It is ideal to hire earlier in pregnancy, so there is more time to identify areas of need. We will work with clients at any stage of pregnancy.
