Supporting you with nurturing guidance through pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood.
Prepare for a positive and empowered birth
Your mind and body are deeply connected. Your thoughts and feelings physically affect your body, influencing your hormones and muscles and, ultimately, the birth process.
Many parents-to-be are surprised at how fast fear can be replaced with confidence when they gain evidence-based knowledge and learn techniques to work with the birth process. The birth of your baby can be an experience filled with wonder and joy.
How I can help
The Wonders Within provides high quality education that extends from birth preparation to breastfeeding and parenthood education and baby massage.
The Calmbirth® course will provide you with knowledge and practical skills to prepare for an empowered birth. These skills include relaxation, breathing, visualisation, massage, acupressure, and informed decision-making to support you through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
BREASTFEEDING & PREPARATION FOR PARENTHOOD
If the thought of taking your baby home and being completely responsible for another human is daunting, you are not alone!
We offer two options to help you prepare. Preparing For Baby is an antenatal course that will provide you with information and skills to support your breastfeeding and parenting journey.
The Parenting Preparation Package involves an antenatal breastfeeding and newborn essentials session, on-call phone support and a post-birth home visit tailored to your needs.
The bonds between you and your baby strengthen with frequent, loving, sensitive interactions. Baby massage provides the perfect opportunity to deepen your connection and confidence in interpreting your baby’s cues and responding through sensitive and nurturing touch.
We thought the course was was fabulous! Packed with information and skills that we certainly drew on to navigate our experience and have the positive feelings we have about our daughter’s birth. We were able to make informed decisions when our wishes needed to deviate which helped us to feel empowered.
I truly believe Kate’s Calmbirth course allowed us to have some understanding of the process and gave us the techniques and confidence to navigate birthing and labour which allowed my husband and I to birth our daughter in the way we wished and without the support of any pain medication.

Kate was very thorough and explained everything really well so I could understand. Kate was very kind, caring and passionate throughout the course and gave a lot of time to answer any questions we had.
Kate made the online course extremely interactive and we were able to converse with the other couples easily. We learnt all the same skills as we would have in person, the only benefit was that it was from the comfort of our own home. Kate sent us content via the post prior and via email post. We didn’t once feel that we missed out on content or skills and we are forever grateful to Kate for this. My husband and I can’t wait to use our new skills and knowledge when we bring our little one into the world in the next few weeks.
