Calm Mindful Birth

Want to know more about birth and baby care to help you feel more ready, prepared and organised?

the Calm Mindful Birth course

The new Calm Mindful Birth Course by Julie explains the belief that woman can experience birth through the natural flow and rhythm of their labouring body; to release birthing over to their mind and body and to trust their body to function as it was intended to.

These are the courses midwives bring their own partners to truly prepare them in the easiest, most positive way, so they know what to do and say during labour.

The course explains the instinctual mind and body connection in childbirth and how a woman’s emotional state influences the birth both mentally and physically.

The program is founded on research from neuroscience, midwifery, obstetrics and epigenetics; and uses the extensive understanding of the relaxation response and its influence on birth.

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.

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!
