The Fear Free Childbirth podcast is for parents-to-be who want a positive and fear-free birth experience. Many pregnant women credit the podcast with helping them have a positive birth.



The show is a mix of real life positive birth stories, birthing experts sharing their wisdom and Alexia sharing how to get into a positive birthing mindset, including techniques for releasing fears.



Alexia is a therapeutic coach, speaker, trainer and author of the book “Fearless Birthing: Clear Your Fears For a Positive Birth”.

Life-transforming!

Hand on my heart, this podcast changed the course of my life!
I'm eternally grateful to Alexia for the incredible work that she does, helping women bust their birth fears and normalising the experience of pregnancy. Through this podcast I discovered Alexia's Tokophobia Support course which allowed me overcome my extreme fear of birth in 3 weeks! As a result, I'm a happier, stronger, calmer and more resilient woman:)
Whether you're planning to get pregnant or are an expecting/new mum, you have to drink from this source of inspiration, enlightenment and wisdom!

Nice idea but ironically damaging unscientific messages in some episodes

I loved this podcast at first and I still love the idea of having this collection of positive birth stories but for someone who claims that she wants women to be more informed she does allow an awful lot of very very dubious kooky talk on here. Also I think some of the ideas about the level of consciousness a baby has in the womb are just insane. I can see how being permanently stressed during pregnancy might have a negative impact on your baby compared to being mostly relaxed during pregnancy, but your baby DOES NOT understand what you are saying when they are in the womb and they definitely can’t read your thoughts! In one episode she claims that parents who are initially shocked or worried when they became pregnant should think about making sure they tell their baby they love them to undo any early damage from the baby knowing their thoughts! Apparently the baby “knows” if it was an accident because it can read your mind! This must make women who believe it feel so awful and guilty about the supposed “damage” they’ve done to their baby.
