Pregnancy Research – Take part in my PhD study

I am currently undertaking a PhD. My research area is in health behaviour during pregnancy. My first online study has now been launched and if you able to help me share this more widely I would be really grateful.

The online survey involves questions about health behaviours during pregnancy such as diet, exercise, vitamin intake, and general wellbeing during pregnancy. The questionnaire responses will be used to inform the development and pilot of an antenatal intervention to help improve health and birth outcomes for women and their babies.

You may take part if you are:

  • currently pregnant


  • aged 18 or over

Unfortunately you will not be able to take part in this study, if you have:

  • A current or past diagnosis of a serious mental health issue
  • If you have experienced a previous stillbirth or neonatal loss

For more information, and to complete the one-off, online survey, see the survey link here

What others think about Daisy

Don’t take my word for how amazing Daisy Birthing is – see what others think…

“Helen is a great teacher, and is very relaxed & natural in her approach. Always happy to answer any questions for nervous mums to be, and gives practical examples & practice that really help prepare for labour & birth. Definitely give Daisy Birthing a go! Highly recommended” – Janine

“First session tonight! was amazing! so relaxing, and Helen is such a wonderful support! It was the most relaxing experience ever! Can’t wait till next week’s session! 🙂” – Charlotte

“Fantastic! As a third time mum I cant believe how much I never knew for my previous births. Helen’s belief in natural birth shines through in her classes and she cant do enough to support you in your mission to have the birth you want. thoroughly enjoyable and would recommend to anyone who’s pregnant 🙂” – Kate

“I am so glad my friend recommended Daisy to me. Sienna was my 3rd child but I still learnt sooo much. Daisy left me positive, well informed and empowered about my upcoming birth. Thanks Helen for all your help and advice” – Nicky

“After going through quite a difficult labour previously I was anxious about the birth of my son. After attending a 6 week Daisy course (and enjoying it so much I did a second 6 week course!) I found that the breathing techniques and the new knowledge of the birth process I learnt from these sessions made me actually look forward to labour and made my sons birth a really positive experience. Thank you Helen 🙂” – Louise

“Brilliant class, I learnt a lot and I feel lots more confident about my birth. Looking forward to another term and the couples workshop. Helen is a friendly and helpful teacher – could not have asked for more from the experience” – Lisa

“I can’t recommend Daisy Birthing highly enough. It has provided much needed relaxation and reassurance – particularly as this is my first baby. It has also given me a massive confidence boost – I have gone from being utterly convinced that I wanted a hospital birth with all the possible pain relief available to now planning a calm, midwife-led birth in a birthing centre in a pool. I’m actually really looking forward to my birthing day now!” – Liane

“I am currently in my second lot of Daisy classes after enjoying it so much with my last child. This is my third baby and it’s just as much use now as if would have been with my first. The techniques for coping with labour are priceless and the relaxation is the highlight of my week. Helen not only talks you through tips but you get to practice them too so that it’s second nature by the time d day comes! Worth every penny and I’ve met some lovely people who have continued to be friends as our babies have grown” – Caroline

Welcome to Daisy Birthing Bromsgrove & Redditch

Weekly Pregnancy Classes are back in person on Monday and Tuesday evenings

Hi I’m Helen. That’s me with my first baby, Henry, and my inspiration for giving up my corporate job 10 years ago to become a Daisy Birthing teacher.

I’m currently undertaking a PhD in pregnancy health behaviour. If you wish to take part in an online study to help me with my research please click here.

A decade on and I am just as passionate about expectant parents having access to evidence-based antenatal education. Expectant parents deserve good support throughout pregnancy, birth and beyond. I offer continuous pregnancy support and education to women and their families across North Worcestershire. In addition, I am a birth doula,  breastfeeding counsellor and traumatic birth recovery practitioner bringing a wealth of training, knowledge and experience to my role as a Daisy Perinatal Educator.

When you book onto any of my classes or workshops you get much more than just another antenatal course. You can also access my 10 years’ experience, training and knowledge of pregnancy and birth. I am always happy to help even when people leave my classes. I willingly provide information and support beyond the classroom or yoga studio.

The classes on offer in your local Daisy community are:

Daisy Birthing is a weekly yoga-inspired, movement antenatal class. BOOK HERE

Active Birth Partner Workshop is for expectant parents to cover the basics of antenatal education and help prepare together for an active and informed birth. BOOK HERE
