Calmbirth® is a pre natal education program for pregnant couples preparing for a positive birth experience. The weekend workshops are made up of around 12 hours of education.
Developed by Pater Jackson specifically to assist couples to create a calm, joyful even ecstatic birth experience.
The aim of the program is to help pregnant couples eliminate the fear, experienced by many, in relation to their approaching labour and birth.
By reducing the fear and anxiety and increasing your understanding of the birth process, this in turn increases your confidence in your body’s ability to give birth.
During the workshops, couples discover how the labouring mother’s body responds physiologically when fear is present. You also learn practical skills of Relaxation, Breathing, Creative Visualisation, and how to make informed choices, all of these skills can be used during pregnancy, labour, childbirth and beyond. Preparation can create a very special birth experience no matter how your birth journey unfolds, even if medical intervention is required.
Calmbirth workshops are facilitated by registered qualified Calmbirth® educators who have fulfilled all the requirements to run classes, calmbirth is based on a combination of observation, research and clinical experience.
