Calmbirth® is a stand-alone program that understands the mind and body connection in childbirth and how a woman’s emotional state influences the birth both mentally and physically. There is no haphazard placement of birth strategies that ‘just seem to work’. As the Calmbirth® program is founded on research from neuroscience, midwifery, obstetrics and epigenetics; and uses the extensive understanding of the relaxation response and its influence on birth. So, it is clinically and scientifically proven. As a result, Calmbirth® has been recognised by the birthing institutions as one of the most holistic, thorough and collaboratively designed course that addresses all the needs of birthing couples on an emotional and physical level.
The Calmbirth® organisation has been the first to create and consolidate strong partnerships with private and public maternity hospitals in Australia in successfully incorporating the Calmbirth®program into their antenatal structure.
The program therefore, is designed and continues to be updated in collaboration with experts, including a range of birthing, education and mind-body specialists. This ensures that the Calmbirth® program continues to meet the needs of birthing couples at both an emotional and physical level while helping to improve the maternity services and birthing outcomes in Australia.
Trained, Professional and Experienced
Calmbirth® is the only childbirth education program that requires all its educators to be practising midwives or trained birth professionals. Unlike other childbirth programs, Calmbirth® prides itself on its professionalism and quality of Calmbirth® educators through their ongoing requirement for professional development. It is also independently accredited by the Australian College of Midwives.
Calmbirth® is also the most highly recommended childbirth education program by obstetricians, midwives and GP’s in Australia, which is why it has been able to develop strong partnerships with leading maternity hospitals in Australia, which are now offering the Calmbirth® program. The Calmbirth® program is now available at the Royal Hospital for Women (RHW) in Randwick, and the Sydney Adventist Hospital (SAN) in Wahroonga, and soon to be expanding into other hospitals.
CALMBIRTH VS. OTHER BIRTHING PROGRAMS
Exceeding Expectations One Birth at a Time
Calmbirth® has the Experience, Training, Credibility and Understanding of Birth.
Over the years we have seen many similar childbirth education programs emerge. However, at Calmbirth® we know about birth better than anyone else because we have been on the birth room floors attending babies’ everyday.
Calmbirth® has stood the test of time since its inception in 2004, and is still leading the way in childbirth education, training and ongoing research in Australia and abroad. It is also one of the first childbirth education programs to be evidence based and clinically and scientifically proven.
