Welcome Earth side Calmbirth baby Addison

Here is her incredibly inspiring birth story…written by her AMAZING Mama Kristen & supported by her wonderful Dad Michael

I was terrified of birth before attending Cass’ Calmbirth class & I truly believe we would’ve had a much different (more stressful) experience if we hadn’t utilised all that we learnt.

A few tips on…‘How to be an Awesome Birth Partner’

This one’s all about you BIRTH PARTNERS and the many things that you can do to be an Awesome Birth Partner. Don’t underestimate just how important your support role is. When it comes to supporting your birthing woman in labour, just simply being there for her and being fully present is great in itself. However, if you really want to be her “rock”, her “anchor”, her “ I couldn’t have done it without him/her” then the following tips just might get you that credit.

When a woman feels calm, safe and private in labour, it is the perfect environment for her to labour and birth in. Her mind will tell her body that it’s safe to relax and her body will respond by surrendering to the birthing process. The act of surrendering will allow the perfect cocktail of birthing hormones to be released, which will help her uterus to contract, her cervix to soften and open and her baby to come down into her pelvis and out into the world. The following tips can help you create your safe, calm and private labour and birth environment.
