You’ve given us lots of tools and what to expect from each stage and the NCT didn’t give us that.

We learned so much from the workshop and feel very confident now.

We completely changed our attitude from thinking it is someone else’s job, to knowing this is our responsibility and it is completely up to us how to go about it. Our views have changed 100%.

The workshop exceeded our expectations and we found it very helpful and informative.

It was easy to follow because Eleanor explained all the jargon and the workshop agenda was in a logical format, presented clearly. Eleanor has great in-depth knowledge on the subject and talks from experience.

We thought the workshop was very thorough and it really helped my husband to understand how to support me best during the birth, not just by explaining everything but also giving practical tools that help (among others) with pain management, labour and bonding with the baby.

Thanks to the workshop we both feel well-informed, calm, able and are looking forward to the birth of our first baby.

I also attended other antenatal classes so I can say that I found the Birthzang workshop far more useful, thorough and informative.

I definitely recommend to all mums-to-be and their birthing partners – even if they have already experienced giving birth, they will learn a lot, or if the first experience wasn’t as they hoped it to be, the Birthzang workshop will give them the knowledge, help and tools they need.


The workshop itself very informative. It was a very relaxed, friendly environment to learn and felt I could ask anything. I learned more far more than expected.

Eleanor’s antenatal classes online workshop and also pregnancy yoga classes really helped me prepare for labour physically and mentally. The workshop was not only educational equipping me & my husband with the knowledge on the stages of labour, we also learned great techniques for dealing with pain including breathing, massage, and positions to adopt.

The workshop is given in a relaxed environment with a small friendly group of other likeminded couples.

I definitely feel that it all enhanced my labour and prepared us well. We would highly recommend attending.

I am on a mission to provide you with essential support and antenatal education to help you have an awesome journey through pregnancy, birth and parenthood with my online antenatal classes.

When you have KNOWLEDGE you also have POWER, and this gives you CONFIDENCE at every step of the way.

This journey from pregnancy through to parenthood is a rollercoaster of emotions and decisions.

I aim to make it easy for you to find the antenatal information you want with a range of antenatal classes, that gather all the facts, so you can make the best choices for you and your baby, and provide unlimited and unconditional support along the way.

My own experience with birth, and working with lots of mums and dads over the years, has inspired me to write a book about pain relief options in labour.

I mean, I think everyone should aim for a natural birth – our bodies are designed for it. However, in the UK, over 50% of mums have some form of pain relief or intervention in labour or birth. 

Helping Birth: your guide to pain relief choices and interventions in labour and childbirth with real stories’ is an indispensable guide for parents looking for reliable information about birth pain relief options and common interventions in labour.

I have found that many women have medical treatment in birth and it resulted in a lot of stress and trauma because they simply DIDN’T UNDERSTAND what the actual treatment was and its implications. 

This book is a comprehensive guide to understand the what, how and why of these medical options, so you can feel in control of your body and in control of your birth.

It will enable you to make empowered and informed decisions in late pregnancy, and before, during and after childbirth, and ultimately help you to have your awesome birth.

It has been carefully researched to include the most up-to-date pain relief options, like gas & air, pethidine and epidural, and details all interventions carried out, such as induction of labour, assisted delivery (forceps or ventouse) and caesarean birth.

There are also 35 real birth stories from mums in the Birthzang network to help you get a real idea about what it is like to have a medical birth.

I wrote this book as I know so many mums go into birth unprepared for pain relief and interventions and this books covers EVERYTHING.

Helping Birth is available on Amazon

There is a lot of information covered in what seems a short amount of time but Eleanor has constructed her course beautifully so all the information can be digested easily.

My partner and I booked Eleanor for our second child, I was amazed at how much new information Eleanor taught that we hadn’t been told with our first.

I would highly recommend Birthzang to any couple wanting to gain valuable information leading up to the birth of their baby.

Thank you Eleanor!

I founded Birthzang after having an incredible birth experience that enlightened me that with the right tools and skills at her fingertips, any woman can have a positive birth experience.

I discovered my passion for providing parents with practical and non-fluffy information in my online antenatal workshops and classes about how to cope with pregnancy, labour, birth, and parenthood.
