Calm Birth is a local Birth Education Option in the Hunter region.

Calm Birth is a great birth preparation for pregnant women (and their supporters). We have listed their information below for your interest. Please contact local Calm Birth Practitioners to ask further questions and to book in, as we are not affiliated with Calm Birth.

A direct quote from the main Calm Birth Website:

“The program runs over two-days (weekends) or four evenings/half days. It prepares couples mentally, emotionally and physically for the birth of their baby. Calmbirth® understands the interrelationship between the mind and body – how our bodies react to our thoughts. Calmbirth® uses this mind- body connection to assist couples to replace the fear, stress and anxiety about giving birth with the knowledge and skills to birth their baby calmly, fearlessly, safely and confidently.”

And a further direct quote:

“During the Calmbirth® program, couples learn to understand and engage with the mind-body connection, using mind- body therapies that reduce fear and stress. Couples are guided through relaxation, meditation and breathing exercises and techniques that teach them how to tap into a wonderful inner resource called— the relaxation response.

The relaxation response is a person’s innate ability to evoke a bodily calm allowing them to counteract the harmful effects of stress, thus providing an atmosphere for emotional and physical healing. During birth the relaxation response is powerful, enabling a mother to work with her physiology and not against it.”
