For those pregnant couples in New Zealand still wanting to experience why there’s no birth like a Calmbirth, here is a profile of our wonderful Calmbirth Educators in New Zealand.
Vida Rye – Wellington
Vida began working in the birthing world in London in 1998 as a doula (trained birth companion and support person after birth). After moving to NZ in 2002, Vida discovered Calmbirth® when pregnant with her first baby and then used the techniques to gently and joyfully birth both of her daughters at home. Vida trained as a Calmbirth® Educator in 2008 and has been sharing Calmbirth® in Wellington ever since.
Debbie Peters – South Island & Auckland/Waiheke
Deb is a registered Calmbirth® educator, who commenced her practice on Waiheke Island, after she had used the techniques for her daughter’s birth. She has spent 7 years teaching in Australia and returned in 2015 to New Zealand. Just over half the women she works with are for their 2nd or 3rd birth.
Alicia Ferguson – Auckland and Wellington
Alicia has been a registered midwife for over 10 years, having worked both in the community and the hospital. She has always been passionate about sharing all her knowledge and experience with others, which meant that becoming a Calmbirth Educator was a perfect fit. She has seen firsthand the amazing influence the Calmbirth course has had when it comes to helping couples create their best birth experience. Alicia is so excited to share this with as many women as possible.
