No one can quite prepare you for the feeling of finding out that you are pregnant, but what we definitely can prepare you for is your pregnancy journey, the experience of giving birth, and those precious early weeks with your new baby.


In this series of videos, we will take you through what to expect from each stage and give you tips and useful tools to manage symptoms and situations. We will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to approach birth without fear and to help you navigate the first few weeks as a new parent.

We will also guide you though the physical and hormonal changes happening in your body during and after pregnancy. The course content has been compiled by our team of medical experts and maternity physiotherapists to provide you with all the expert clinical knowledge you need to feel empowered as you approach childbirth and the postpartum months.

The content is presented to you by our expert midwife partner Marie in a warm, passionate and easy to understand format. Enjoy the videos, and we wish you all the very best with your pregnancy journey.

About the Modern Midwife


Marie has been an NHS midwife for over a decade and so she has lots of experience delivering antenatal and postnatal education.



She´s also a mum, so she´s been where you are now. In this series, Marie gives you comprehensive information plus answers some of the most popular questions that she has been asked over the years while working across various maternity units.

Marie champions maternal mental health and campaigns against maternity discrimination. She´s been fortunate enough to provide expert advice on BBC Radio 4 Women’s Hour, Channel 5 and ITV, and earlier this year published a book with Penguin called The Modern Midwife’s Guide to Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond.
Modern mums are faced with an overwhelming amount of options, opinions, advice and complex decisions at such an emotional time.

We envision a world in which everyone has equal access to evidence-based information and no mother is limited by their circumstances to better understand modern motherhood. Embracing our digital age is a good way to share information, expertise, and opinions.

Pregnancy is a life changing journey and it’s important for us to ensure women everywhere have easy access to evidence-based information so that they can make informed decisions, be the birth boss, trust their mumstinct and approach motherhood with confidence.
