When I began sharing Calmbirth with couples over 17 years ago, my intention was supporting people to have safer, calmer more comfortable and positive birth experiences.

While that intention remains,  my experiences and learnings have shown me that our basic human needs – safety, connection, and knowing that when we are in need, someone will be there for us – that these needs are central not only to a safe, calmer more comfortable and positive birth experience, but also central to avoiding trauma and developing healthy secure attachment as a foundation for relationship.

What’s the relevance of Calmbirth here?, and how does a deeper understanding of the Autonomic Nervous System help?
