Empowering women and families through education, hospital infrastructure and art.

The Jentle Childbirth Foundation (JCF) provides the tools women and their families need for them to achieve a positive birth experience.

The JCF approach has been designed to empower all women during their pregnancy and birth journey, whether it’s a vaginal birth or caesarean section.

The Jentle Childbirth Foundation was founded by midwife Jenny Smith in 2007 and it achieved charitable status in 2017. Charity no. 1179559

Jenny’s work for the JCF has always been supported by the mothers, partners and their families who were grateful for their experience and wanted to help share the experience with others.

A personal approach to induction of labour

In the UK, one in three women are offered an induction of labour.

The aim of our film is to give you information regarding induction and what to expect during the induction process if you decide to have one.
