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.

Julie is one of the most popular and recommended active birth and baby care teachers due to her genuine respect for her clients, her kind, gentle manner and passion, enthusiasm and infectious positive attitude
Courses available during weekends, weekdays and evenings to suit your timing and lifestyle.
Course designed for couples with a maximum of 8 couples per course for personalised 1 on 1 instruction.
New Super Condensed Course delivers the course in just 1 day, ideal for shift workers, Police, Fireman, Nurses, Ambos etc.
