Birth Prep In A Box

Uncomplicating Hypnobirthing

Birth Prep In A Box is a fully comprehensive toolkit for Birth Preparation and Hypnobirthing practice.

As the creator of BPIAB I am proud to say that it is the only toolkit of it's kind (bold statement I know, but keep reading to know more about why/how). This is because it truly is flexible to both the family's needs and the preferences of the person presenting the information.
(I find it really tends to appeal to neurodivergent families and facilitators).

The whole toolkit is based around a set of 57 flashcards, each holding nuggets of information on a variety of topics with leads to explainer videos, audio descriptions & much more in depth information, evidence and research in our enormous resources library, should the family want to take their learning further.

This approach truly does 'uncomplicate' Hypnobirthing and preparing for birth, whilst still making trusted, reliable information easy to find without any need to step into the opinionated world of Google.

We pride ourselves on having a community driven approach to everything. No-one is the expert here, we simply share our knowledge and experiences with one another and really encourage ongoing learning and exploration.

I strive to keep the course cost low at just £300 (increasing to £450 in 2025) - for this you will take part in our 10 hour live Zoom course and will receive full access to the entire BPIAB kit, and all ongoing support is provided via regular meet ups and our community group on the website. There are no ongoing membership fees, we just ask that you keep up to date with what is going on at BPIAB and purchase a 'Client pack' (£40) for each client, this approach means that your cost are completely covered by your clients: if you're not earning then you have no costs.

How is Birth Prep In A Box Different?

Birth Prep In A Box is the ONLY truly fully comprehensive birth preparation course that evolves to the way the individual learns best, and the way the facilitator shares best too - It flexes to both learning/teaching styles and budgets too.

I originally created this Birth Preparation and Hypnobirthing course for myself and my own Doula clients back in 2021. Having  seen how much of a positive impact it had on my own client's experiences of birth I began to make the full materials available to as many people as possible.

So Birth Prep In A Box became an online course with the printed version available to purchase too (aka 'The cards), but we all know that one-2-one or in person learning is the gold standard here don't we?!

Now here I am with a mission to make Hypnobirthing Facilitator training accessible to as many people as possible with a whole new approach, with the hope that these unbiased, evidence based birth preparation tools can find their way to as many families as they possibly can.

What is included in the training?

Training costs £300 and involves a 10 hour live online group course with all the ongoing support you need

Mary-Jane Doula

"Such a wonderful and thorough course. I learned so much and had really meaningful conversations with Sarah and the other participants. It was great to learn from other people in the birth world about what they do and embrace their knowledge. If you're considering becoming a hypnobirthing facilitator I can't recommend this course enough. It was very insightful and the ongoing community and support is incredible. I feel having the cards makes it so much easier to impart that information onto parents-to-be with consistency and concision, as well as allowing for more in depth discussion on each topic."

Bonnie Norfolk Doula

"This has been such a helpful resource for me as a doula! The course was great, and very reasonably priced compared to many other Hypnobirthing facilitator courses. It was lovely to build a network of other birth workers. The cards give me a structure to my birth preparation sessions, which has saved me so much time planning sessions. I am offering Hypnobirthing to my birth clients as well as a standalone course, and passing the small recurring cost of the package on to my clients. The cards are beautiful and my clients love having something to keep, and remind them of the key information we cover. I would recommend adding this to your tool kit to any Doula! 🌈💕"

Thea Anderson IBCLC

"Birth Prep In A Box is an incredible resource for families. It provides a wealth of knowledge across antenatal education, birth preparation and planning. It covers Hypnobirthing, through hypnosis and mindfullness education, as well as access to a variety of mp3 tracks to use. I am a doula and IBCLC and have been fortunate enough to train with Sarah, the creator of Birth Prep In A Box, to be able to offer this wonderful package of education and resources to my clients. It is an adaptable and flexible programme and can suit any family, in any situation, through any circumstances."
