Calm Mindful Birth – 2 Day Course

The New 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, thereby alleviating undue discomfort, assisting rather than resisting the normal process.

The Mindful Birth course developed by Julie after years of personal and professional experience provides pregnant couples with all the knowledge, confidence, insights and easy-to-achieve skills for training the mind, body and heart for achieving a calm positive childbirth and early parenting and beyond.

Mindful birth understands and 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.

Pregnant couples who attend the course are delighted to find it resonates with their own instinctive ideas, beliefs, common sense and intuition. It is clinically and scientifically proven. Mindful Birth is recognized as one of the most holistic, thorough and collaboratively designed course that addresses the needs of birthing couples on an emotional and physical level. The program therefore, is designed and continues to be updated in collaboration with experts, including a range of birthing, education and mind-body specialists. This ensures that the Mindful Birth program continues to meet the needs of birthing couples at both an emotional and physical level while helping to improve the maternity services and birthing outcomes in Australia.
