Calmbirth® Group Course

Calmbirth® is a 12 hour evidence based childbirth education program, which recognises the mind/body connection and it's relevance in birth. A woman's emotional state has profound implications of how her body responds during labour and birth.

The aim of the Calmbirth® program is to reduce fears, stressors and anxieties commonly held around birth, and replace these with knowledge, to empower couples to birth their babies calmly and confidently.

The Calmbirth® program has been shown to:

  • Increase confidence in birth.

  • Decrease use of pharmacological pain relief.

  • Decrease rates of caesarean section.

  • Increase rates of normal vaginal birth.
