Your Birth, Your Way
Hello and Congratulations! I am so glad that you have found me.
I am Leonie Darch and the founder of Birthology. I have been supporting pregnancy and birth since 2011 and Birthology is my knowledge and experience from over 250 births.
What I have learnt is that understanding the process of birth is only half of the story. Understanding the psychology of birth completes the picture. I have witnessed first-hand how the body will only work if the mind is working with it.
Pregnancy is a complicated world isn’t it?
Maybe you have just discovered that you are pregnant and you have every emotion under the sun mixed in with new hormones and tiredness. You feel excited but it can also be a scary time as you approach your 12 week scan.
Or maybe you are in your 2nd trimester when suddenly everyone knows you are pregnant and everyone has a story to tell. Your body and baby are changing rapidly. The amount of advice can feel overwhelming at times and knowing who to listen to, which books to read, which classes to attend is a confusing time.
Or perhaps you are heading into your 3rd trimester and you are much closer to the end of pregnancy than the beginning and that can only mean one thing. Preparing yourself for birth and parenthood.
Most antenatal classes are focusing on the physical process of birth and what to expect. It is an outdated, one size fits all approach. At Birthology we have a unique approach combining birth science with emotional support. No two births are the same and your antenatal support will reflect that. You will feel confident and excited because you understand how to stay calm and in control of your labour and birth, the role of the birthing mind and how your body and baby can thrive.
