About your Registered Calmbirth Educator
Kate Corbett has had a passion for working with families for the past 14 years. Kate began her career as a paediatric nurse before becoming a registered midwife in 2007. As a midwife Kate has worked in partnership with women and their partners across the pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal periods.
Kate is also certified infant massage instructor and runs groups on the Central Coast.
Calmbirth® Birth Classes
As a midwife Kate observed many benefits that couples experienced when preparing for birth with the Calmbirth® childbirth program. She noted how much calmer and confident couples were when they had knowledge and understanding of the birth process along with practical skills. In 2014 Kate became a registered Calmbirth® educator to share this knowledge.
In the Calmbirth® classes couples learn about how a woman’s body works during labour and birth, breaking down misconceptions about the birth process that can evoke fear and mistrust. There is also an emphasis on understanding the power of the mind-body connection as stress and relaxation directly effect the uterine muscles and hormones during labour. The course enables couples to develop a toolkit of practical skills to use throughout the birth. These skills include relaxation, breathing, massage and acupressure which can enhance a woman’s ability to work with her body during labour.
Kate provides small group Calmbirth® classes in East Gosford, New South Wales. Kate also conducts classes at the Sydney Adventist Hospital (SAN) in Wahroonga. Kate’s classes combine her midwifery and Calmbirth knowledge along with insights from her own personal Calmbirth birthing experiences.
Kate looks forward to supporting you during this important time of preparation. To view the class schedule click here
