Welcome to Calmbirth® childbirth education      

Why Calmbirth®? because we empower pregnant couples with the knowledge and skills to make your birthing process as
pleasurable as possible.
Imagine a calm and joyful beginning to your baby’s life. It is possible. Calmbirth® is a simple yet effective childbirth education programme which acknowledges the amazing ability of a mother’s body to work as one with her unborn child to give birth. Calmbirth® empowers the mother and her partner to experience birth with wonder and joy.

Birth is a natural process which should be experienced fearlessly, calmly and with confidence. Calmbirth® teaches pregnant mothers, fathers or birthing companions the skills to accomplish such an experience. Calmbirth® encourages mothers to surrender to the process of their labour and birth no matter how it unfolds. If, for some reason intervention is needed couples can use the skills learnt in the Calmbirth® classes to meet any challenge they encounter calmly and without fear.

We run classes every weekend in Mittagong on the Southern Highlands, just an hour & half south of Sydney CBD. More about our classes.

Classes are now running at the Royal Hospital for Women Randwick and Sydney Adventist Hospital (SAH) Wahroonga. See details for SAN in Classes - Calmbirth Classes at the SAN

There are registered Calmbirth® practitioners throughout Australia, New Zealand & Hong Kong. Find a registered practitioner near you.

"In surrendering to birth, we also learn about our role on earth: we are neither the rulers or architects of creation. Life comes through us simply and gracefully when we allow it."
