Dr Pat has helped 3000+ babies to be born. That is a lot of sleepless nights and early morning rises. He has a special interest in pre-existing issues, like endometriosis, and the impact these issues have in pregnancy.
Mama Brigid wears a few hats with a background in Podiatry then Marketing, she helps to run the Clinic and manage the household with four boys needing to be loved, fed and ferried.
We know there's lots of information on the internet about pregnancy.
Billions of articles, forums, and Insta accounts.
Some are really good - maybe a little dry and technical - and some are biased, not up-to-date, non-expert or simply put - dangerous.
These are the ones that makes us loose sleep.
It makes us very distressed that all the rabbit holes ultimately can lead to a loss of confidence.
We hear words like "blindsided" and "overwhelmed" and phrases like
"I wish I had of known" and "if only someone had of told me".
Often these words are from women who have had their babies.
Today's birth preparation is a lot of listening to birth stories with a dash of 'I don't need to know that as it won't happen to me' with a spritz of hospital antenatal classes on the side.
Hands up if this is familiar?
Well, we think there is another way to help you feel CALM + CONFIDENT in your mama skin.
We often hear stories where a pregnancy or birth has taken many unplanned twists (...the very common story of growing a baby).
What has taken our breath away is when our members tell us a story where some of the twists were scary and yet they remained calm + confident.
What is their secret? Expert, meaningful, real life information.
Knowledge truly is power.
We know a mama's pregnancy and birth has a massive impact on how she begins her motherhood.
Actual access to Dr. Pat and Brigid, information from other experts they trust, and witness to the questions, worries, and joys of fellow lovely pregnant women who also appreciate reliable, balanced information. I feel empowered with information, information I never would have known to ask about, information my medical provider doesn't provide by default (and is even difficult to get if I do ask - I've tried!). I am very grateful for the Grow My Baby program!
Finding reliable and evidence based information like this that is easy to access is priceless! Thank you so much for being at the forefront of delivering pregnancy information like no one else!
I love all the information and how responsive and pragmatic Pat and Brigid are in the group and the lives.
It really helps me keep on top of all the worries which pop up and get back to enjoying my pregnancy."
