Calmbirth Classes

Calmbirth Classes

Calmbirth philosophy is based on the belief that pregnancy, labour and birth are normal life events and that birth should be a calm and joyful experience. Calmbirth classes aim to educate couples about the birthing process and how to trust in the body’s natural ability to birth their baby; whilst alleviating fear and anxiety.

What to expect

Calmbirth classes are designed to give couples an understanding of:

  • How fear and tension can affect the normal physiology of labour and birth
  • How to keep hormones at an optimal level and how they can have a positive effect on labour and birth
  • Structure and function of the uterine muscle
  • The stages of labour and the normal birth process
  • How to work together as a couple to achieve a calm, harmonious birth experience
  • The importance of bonding with your baby during pregnancy and after birth

Developing birth skills

Calmbirth will also teach couples how to develop practical skills including:

  • Relaxation, breathing and visualisation techniques
  • Light touch massage
  • Skills for partners/supports to assist women in labour and birth
  • How to create a calm birthing environment
