“I think one of the best things we could do would be to help women/parents/families discover their own birth power, from within themselves. And to let them know it’s always been there, they just needed to tap into it.” John H. Kennell, MD
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers- strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength” Barbara Katz Rothman, PhD
“In surrendering to birth, we also learn about our role on the earth: we are neither the rulers nor the architects of creation. Life comes through us, simply and gracefully, when we allow it.” Sarah Buckley

What is Calmbirth®?
Calmbirth® is a prenatal childbirth education course developed by midwife Peter Jackson as a means to assist women and their partners to experience the wonder and joy of childbirth free from fear and anxiety. The Calmbirth® philosophy is based on the premise that pregnancy, labour and birth are normal life events that can be enjoyed. In the courses, couples are taught highly effective techniques to work with their body during labour.
Calmbirth® emphasises the important role of the partner or support person in assisting the mother throughout pregnancy, labour and birth to remain calm, confident and focused. Throughout the classes the many ways partners can be actively involved in supporting the birthing mother are explored.
