It is your body, your baby and your birth - Simple!


I’m Ria Oliver, the founder of The Simple Birth Company and creator of the Mind, Body and Soul Hypnobirthing Programme.  I am a mum to two of my own lovely hypno-birthed babies, Fletcher (3 years old) and Finley (20 months) and we live in the rural town of Letchworth, Hertfordshire where The Simple Birth Company is based.  I also form one third of the specialist pregnancy service team at The Secret Garden in Hitchin where I work alongside B.A.B.I.E.S and MamaBabyBliss to provide care, support, guidance and information to local expectant parents. Learn more about me below:

I specialise in dealing with clients with fears and anxieties about birth and created the Mind, Body and Soul Hypnobirthing Programme and The Healing Birth Circle support group to help my clients acknowledge and overcome these fears, by re-framing previous negative experiences, alleviating anxieties, building confidence and positive birth expectancy.

My programme, is the must do programme for those needing more than just a standard birth preparation programme. My course is an antenatal education, hypnobirthing and emotional wellbeing programme, that prepares you for the demands of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Through my various classes and services, I strive to provide you with all the tools, knowledge and support you will need through your pregnancy and birth journey to INFORM, EDUCATE, INSPIRE and EMPOWER you!
