    My husband and I completed both the New Mindful Birth and Transition into Parenthood classes with Julie and found both to be invaluable in the preparation for the birth of our son. Having heard lots of horror stories about natural births I was quite fearful about my own and was recommended the Mindful Birth classes as a way of building confidence. I am so pleased we did them. Because of Julie and these classes I went into our birth confident and unafraid and was able to have a drug free natural birth with no tearing or trauma.

    This is the most valuable course you will ever do. I strongly recommend that everyone do it. Not only will you and your partner learn so much that you can’t pick up in books, but Julie is so willing to answer even the strangest questions with so much joy. I am now really looking forward to giving birth without any fear. Thanks Julie!

    Julie conducts an amazing The New Mindful Birth course. I would highly recommend taking this course from Julie. Her knowledge, recommendations and resources have been invaluable to me and my husband in preparation of the arrival of our firstborn. Not only is the course great, but Julie makes herself available after the course, with the Baby Care Support Service which I was lucky enough to take advantage of in my own home.

    I feel quite special being on a DOULA journey with Julie. Her love, compassion, knowledge and experience goes beyond pregnancy and birth, she really understands and knows how to inspire us to be the best support person for a woman and family during this incredible time of their lives. Julie has built a community and I hope to be part of it, always. Gratitude and success to you dear!

    I highly recommend Julie and both of her birth classes. After a traumatic 2nd birth, I had all but decided I wanted a cesarean. We enrolled in Julie’s course, and listened to the CD nightly while falling asleep. When I went in to labour, I visualised, remained calm and centered and less than an hour later my 3rd son entered the world, and breastfed straight away.
    Love your work Julie and I recommend your class to all my pregnant friends!

    Julie and the course were both amazing. I was a little skeptical going in but after just the first day I felt more confident, relaxed and empowered about labour and birth. The course promoted me and my husband to have the direct and honest conversations we needed to plan for that day with a calm and pragmatic approach and clarity on what we want.
    Thank you Julie.

    From the moment Julie Clarke stepped into our home I felt calm and totally at ease.
    Julie’s lovely and soft nature guided me through the best feeding and settling
    techniques, massage, and bath time ideas. I felt totally calm and at ease. Julie
    provided me with all the right answers to my questions. I felt the pressure I was
    putting on myself to reach some unrealistic ideal of parenting dissipate. I relaxed and started to really enjoy my time as a mother with my beautiful baby.

    My husband and I did both courses. Doing The New Mindful Birth is honestly 1 of the best things we have ever done. We could not have a discussion about birth without feeling anxiety and fear. All my life I have felt absolutely terrified about the prospect of giving birth. Since doing The New Mindful Birth course I feel more relaxed, less fearful and more in control. I’ve gone from wanting every drug under the sun to giving a natural birth a really great shot. The techniques I have been taught I use in my everyday life and are amazing. Transition into parenthood was brilliant. It gave us so many priceless tips that have made us feel more confident and excited to be parents. Julie is a complete asset to my life I felt a huge sigh of relief when meeting her just know I have someone there to help and guide me and that is the most amazing feeling!

    I loved the transition to parenthood and The New Mindful Birth classes with Julie. This gave me a lot of confidence with my wife in progressing with a natural birth and what to do when things do not always go as planned. I now feel equipped with dealing with MOST of what birth can throw at us.

    My husband and I did both the Transition into Parenthood and Mindful Birth courses and were extremely happy we did. The courses provided us with the confidence we needed both for the big day as well as afterwards with our newborn. Well worth the money and would definitely recommend, particularly for first time parents who are feeling anxious about childbirth.

    For a woman try to achieve a nature birth, this is a great way to start to attend this course. My husband and I found it is excellent and useful. Hope more women can get what they need from the courses.

    As a dad to be I am really grateful to have done both the new Mindful Birth and transition to parenthood classes. Looking back on the labor experience for my wife and still going through the first month of our baby’s life the information gained is well worth the cost.

    Mindful birth – I think many guys find themselves thinking they have little to with the birth but to be there. My comment would be to not miss out on this rare opportunity to show your love for your wife and family. The Mindful Birth course was certainly empowering for my wife. For me however it taught me where my focus needs to be and equipped me with valuable skills such as how to discuss issues with medical staff which was very helpful in the actual labor.

    Transition to parenthood – a very practical and informative class where you would certainly benefit from doing the two full days to get the most out of it. While it incorporated elements of labor there was no overlap with Mindful Birth .

    Overall the combination of the information given along with Julie’s very approachable and down to earth teaching style, her experience in the field and her willingness to take time out to chat via phone and email with any questions you may have make it easy for me to recommend these classes to anyone without hesitation.

    For the dads, older generations had very little to do with birth and even now many other dads came to the class simply ‘for their partners’.. But there is an enormous amount you can give and gain from the birth experience that will make a real difference to your relationship and stamp the beginning of being the man you want to be for the future to your partner and child – these classes certainly help you realise that, don’t miss the opportunity.

    This class was wonderful! Julie provided a great overview of birth and caring for your new baby in both the Mindful Birth and transition to parenthood classes. Attending these provided both practical tips as well as assisting you to mentally prepare for both Labour and the initial few weeks at home. These classes took the fear out of childbirth and becoming a parent, and allowed for me and my husband to have a very positive, supported, empowered and connected experience in the arrival of our beautiful baby girl. Julie has also been extremely helpful in providing advice with the many questions we have had since bringing our baby girl home. I highly recommend these classes with Julie to anyone having a baby!

Do you want to know how we found out about Julie? Through a friend who recommended her and her classes... and guess what?? He had never even met her! ...that's how powerful her work is, and how much it spreads by word of mouth!

Now from first hand experience, I COMPLETELY recommend this course to anyone expecting a baby...and frankly, even people who are not yet expecting a baby- it's just so informative!

My husband and I felt truly empowered, nurtured, and informed, on so many levels having done both the "Calm Mindful birth" and the "transition into parenthood" workshops available. Both workshops are exceptionally great, the atmosphere peaceful, easy-going pace, and taught with such a generous and open attitude by Julie! Not only does the mother (who will give birth) feel understood, nurtured, and empowered...but so does the father!

As a couple, you both receive very valuable tools and skills you can use to work together to make both the birthing and parenting experience easier, more comfortable, and harmonious!

Melissa MaimannMelissa Maimann

I have known Julie for almost 15 years and have referred lots and lots of women to her. Couples find her classes to be so enlightening, uplifting, informative, supportive and nurturing. She goes above and beyond to make Mums and Dads feel welcome, at home and empowered. I can't recommend any other classes more highly.

Rebecca SpearRebecca Spear

My Husband and I feel deeply indebted to Julie for her association. We went into her course nervous, and unprepared, and felt very much in the hands of people, and a system, that we didn’t trust.
With only days, or weeks to go before the birth of little Bub, we have to say that we feel we can make educated decisions, and are prepared for anything. We feel in control of our birth experience, and I can’t tell you how liberating that is.
The difference in our confidence, makes us feel like we are role models to help others.
We couldn’t thank Julie enough for the wisdom, truth, and knowledge that she has shared with us, and she continues to show us her friendship and support.
A highly recommended experience for expecting couples 💗

Julie was absolutely amazing to help me organise this course for my soon-to-be mom friend! She went up and beyond to make sure she delivers everything on time with stringent timeframes! Absolutely delighted with her amazing customer service! Wish you lots of luck Julie! Thank you again!!

My husband (Levi) and I completed both the Transition to Parenthood and Calm Mindful birth classes that Julie facilitates. I cannot fathom how important these classes were to the birth of my baby girl. Julie provided information that empowered my husband and I for the whole birthing process. Her knowledge and assistance gave us the confidence to question the reasons behind our obstetrician pushing for an induction (which was not necessary) and ultimately led us to change from obstetric care and seek midwifery care via the public hospital. My labour was 11 hours long and I gave birth naturally to my daughter without complications or drugs and she was just perfect! Julie provided us with the greatest detail of information on the stages of labour, techniques on how to manage all that encompasses a labour, and very importantly the skills necessary for Levi to be a fantastic support person who kept me going when I thought I couldn't. Her course enabled us to be thoroughly prepared for our first birth (and post birth) and provided us with the tools necessary for an exceptional birthing experience and transition into parenthood. Her knowledge is incredibly valuable and beyond anything that can be provided by hospitals, and she truly provides unbiased pros and cons to all methods of birth and enables participants to make informed decisions on their birthing experience. Highly recommend to anyone who is having a baby!

If you don’t know Julie, are you even really Pregnant?
Julie was recommended by so many friends, it was a hard force to ignore.
Since attending Julie’s calmbirth course, I still hear of people who know her from their older children who are now in their teens!).
Julie has a strong reputation for a reason and it truly shows. Not only is Julie knowledgeable, but also patient and very giving of herself and insights so you get the best experience for your situation.
Couldn’t recommend Julie highly enough!

Amy CainAmy Cain

We had such a positive experience with Julie in the 3 days we spent with her learning about birthing and how amazing our body is. Feeling far more at ease about the upcoming process, and doing our best to not listen to the negative experiences from friends, and focusing on welcoming this new bubba in a safe and positive way.

Must admit hubby was a sceptic, and is now converted to a more natural process (if possible of corse) and is super supportive and so knowledgeable that he is reminding me of the relaxation points and helping me when I have my moments of discomfort or anxiety. Such a wonderful help!

Thanks Julie, See you for your mumma bubba breakfast walks once bub arrives 🙂

We did both courses with Julie (Transition to Parenting and Calmbirth). They were the reason we were able to have a safe, natural and calm start to our new family. I felt so afraid of childbirth itself before we signed up - something she taught us increases your experience of pain, so we learnt how to keep the pain of childbirth to a minimum, and in the end I didn't even need paracetamol. It was fine - and all thanks to the skills and referrals she made for us. It was wonderful. i'm so grateful. Thank you

Sarah LewisSarah Lewis

We did both of Julie's classes and feel so much more prepared. She has been fantastic through the entire process and created an environment where we felt welcomed, comfortable and nurtured. Wish these classes were the norm for all expecting families. Thank you Julie, look forward to sharing our birth story with you in the near future.

Samantha DennisonSamantha Dennison

Fantastic course!! I'd highly recommend it to everyone I know... Julie's a wonderful teacher & is full of informative & wholistic views, which really helps you gain confidence & enables you to make educated decisions. The class is very relaxed & the personable touches, make you feel right at home. Julie's a very funny and insightful lady & I very much look forward to our calm birth class! Great experience!!

Rachelle MunroRachelle Munro

After My Husband and I went along to Julie's Class we were both very calm and totally ready for every aspect of our labour and parenthood. It would have been a totally different experience without all the knowledge and confidence she instilled in us! We new what to expect and we were fearless!
We wish to thank Julie for putting our nervous little souls at ease! Great program!
