with KNOWLEDGE comes CONFIDENCE and CHOICE
What is Calmbirth® All About?
Birth has the capacity to be a transformative experience.
This potential is sometimes overlooked by the natural fear and uncertainty that may occur as you are preparing for your child to come into the world. Fear is a very natural response, however, it doesn't always have to be the case. Calmbirth® classes offer you an opportunity to explore different systems of birth and how you can negotiate your partnerships, thoughts and feelings, and most importantly your body wherever you may choose to give birth.
These ideas will be explored in a group setting for two days, where couples will spend this time together and learn as a team how to prepare for birth and parenting. There is an ease to Calmbirth® classes that is unique to the practice due to on its emphasis on a healthy mind-body relationship during birth.
What’s different about Calmbirth® to other antenatal classes?
Calmbirth® gives you tools for birth. It opens you up to new ways of looking at birth that YouTube and various other realities may not provide for you.
Unlike other birth education Calmbirth® has a strong emphasises a togetherness. Togetherness with your body, your mind, your partner and your baby. Calmbirth® understands that working alongside with all these components will make you more confident, assured and stronger in your birthing experience. We will help you achieve the best outcome for you and your baby physically, psychologically and emotionally, whatever the circumstances.
Calmbirth® is a growth course. It will highlight the inner resources and how you can access those resources. You are the person giving birth and you want those around you to know what they are doing and what questions to ask, so that you have the freedom to feel safe and empowered.

My husband and I attended a Calm Birth workshop with Jenny and it helped immensely during both my subsequent births.
