Whether you’re planning a hospital, home, or midwife-led birth, we’ll guide you and your partner through our unique method for creating a smooth birth experience…all from the ease of your armchair. So that for the rest of your pregnancy, you’ll feel fearless not freaked out!
Whether you’re updating your “pregnancy spreadsheet”, ensuring all baby toys match your nursery’s grey and yellow colour palette, or answering work emails while treating yourself to a pedicure…
You've always been in control.
At work, in your relationship, your bank account, and even your shoe collection. So, on one of the more important days of your life, do you want to leave it up to chance? While you try to enjoy your pregnancy and learn everything about your growing belly, you still freeze up at the thought of… giving birth.
After all, you’ve heard the horror stories: Your sister-in-law was in labour for 3 days. Your co-worker was screaming out in pain. Your neighbour tore and couldn’t walk for weeks. And your yoga-buddy? Poohed on the delivery table.
As you hear one disaster scenario after another, you wonder:
We know what you need...
You’re after one of these “alternative”, hippie techniques that supposedly result in magic silent births, invisible births, perfect births even etc...
We like to keep it real...and prepare you for EVERYTHING!
So, how can we help?
The Calm Birth School has been teaching everyday women since 2011 the core principles of hypnobirthing and the active birth movement to provide a holistic approach to their antenatal care.
NO VAGINA-WHISPERING, KUMBAYA-SINGING, GODDESS-CHANNELING NONSENSE.
Just scientifically-proven calming and relaxation techniques, so that you know what is happening in your body and how to work with it.
Hypnobirthing has had the most incredible impact on our lives – throughout pregnancy, Eden’s birth and beyond into life as parents. She is a dream baby – calm, curious, independent and playful…and a great little sleeper! Hypnobirthing is the beginning of something beautiful and we want to wish all the future hypnofamilies the happiest of adventures.
