You probably have a thousand
and one questions

(not to mention a few concerns)

Even the most confident and laid-back parents-to-be have moments of anxiety.
And everyone has questions buzzing in their head.

Bump Questions

What should (and shouldn’t) I be eating and drinking? How should I prepare for birth? Will stress harm my baby? How do I help my partner get ready? And how do I lose the baby weight?

Birth Questions

When should I leave for the hospital? What will labour be like? How do I practise breathing? What medical procedures might be given to me? And what pain relief options do I have?

Baby Questions

What if I don’t bond with my baby, or get postnatal depression? How do I breastfeed? Can we opt for formula? How will I get back to work? And will my body ever look the same again?

Helping your employer become more parent friendly

As well as support for families, we also help employers better support the parents in their teams. Navigating work during this time can be tricky, and managers are often ill-equipped to handle the process. So we help them better understand your challenges and manage with more skill, empathy and humanity.

Proud to work with

Hello, I’m Sofie, founder of Urban Hatch

I’ve worked as midwife for 20 years. I created Urban Hatch because I saw firsthand how expectant parents were not adequately supported. Antenatal and childbirth classes are fine, but only part of the puzzle. Support was incomplete.

My team and I will take you beyond the clinical to provide you with the emotional support you need, at every moment that matters. We’re here for the entire journey – as much, or as little, as you need.
