Getting To Know Calmbirth Educator Miriam Hart
Miriam Hart is a Registered Midwife with experience working in Maternity in both the public and private sectors. She also has experience working as a Midwife in an Early Parenting Unit.
“I completed my Bachelor of Midwifery as a mature-age student. During this time I experienced many models of care from Homebirth, Midwifery Group Practice, and the public and private hospital maternity system. I have always been in awe of how incredible women’s bodies are and how amazing it is that we can not only grow a baby but also birth and nurture a baby. Having a Dutch background (which has the highest rate of homebirths) I have often wondered how birth has become so medicalised and feared in different countries and cultures.
“I became a Calmbirth educator because I want to support women and their partners to feel confident and empowered during their pregnancy, labour, and birth. One of the things l love about Calmbirth is it gives couples the knowledge and tools to create a positive birth experience, regardless of the path that their birth journey may take.”
