#itstime…Birth Time

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the premiere of Birth Time – the question in the room, is what would it take for women to emerge from their birth feeling physically well and emotionally safe?

Mason’s birth was an empowering birth experience

Adam was such an amazing birthing partner following my lead and bringing me back to my breathing and visualisation when I became unfocused. We got the water birth we always wanted and a very quick 1.5 hour labour, delayed cord clamping and waiting for placenta to pass naturally. 

I trusted my body and what it could do!

You can’t sense and stress at the same time…

One of our biggest goals in the @Calmbirth Program is to give you and your partner tools to work with the challenges and stressors that can arise not only in labour but also parenting and your everyday life. So here is a quick and simple, but powerful tool to use whenever you may be feeling a little overwhelmed and stressed.

Have you ever noticed that you can’t sense and stress at the same time?
Just stop and think about it for a moment – you can’t sense and stress at the same time!

Birth is not just about birthing a baby, but the birth of a mother too…

For part 3 of Clair Wind from the Mum Will Know Podcast mini series on Childbirth Education options, Claire speaks with Calmbirth director Karen McClay. Following in her father’s footsteps as a midwife and Calmbirth educator, Karen opens up how birth is not just about birthing a baby, but the birth of a mother too.

She delves into the importance of acknowledging the emotional side of birth and parenting and discusses how the event of giving birth is monumental in preparing a couple to face parenthood.

Karen shares exactly what to expect from a Calmbirth course and offers wisdom on the importance of education in all aspects of life
