Emmy is a Registered Midwife and Registered Nurse with over 10 years experience in supporting women through all areas of their birthing and parenting journey. Her particular passion is in Antenatal and Early Parenting Education and she is happiest when sharing her knowledge and accompanying couples on their own unique journey into parenthood.She says, "It is my firm belief that every woman is born instinctively knowing how to give birth but societal norms have caused us to lose sight of this amazing, innate ability. As a result, we don't fully trust our bodies to see the process through and women become weighed down by fear and anxiety."I see my role as a "re-educator", rather than an 'educator', and Calmbirth as the master-key to unlocking your own strength and ability to birth your baby in the best way for you. Every single birth is incredible and unique and having had 3 children myself, I can attest to the fact that no two births are the same.
Are you looking for help with your baby or toddler’s sleep that is not sleep training? As we move through this year of drought, bush-fire, and COVID 19 on into the challenge of the 2020s, increasing numbers of parents are making a decision to avoid conventional sleep training methods.This could be because they have tried sleep training and have decided it doesn’t work for their family. Experimenting is a great parenting strength and it makes sense that many of us experiment with what still remains the dominant approach to infant sleep.Or it could be that parents have decided that sleep training doesn’t align with their parenting values. These values are unique to each parent and each family - and it is important to never judge another family’s decisions, since everyone wants to do the right thing by their child.
Jordan Harper is a registered midwife and Calmbirth educator in the Port Macquarie area. A beautiful place to call home she says!"I found Calmbirth as a student midwife and felt drawn to it ever since. I became an educator because I am passionate about educating women and families about the magical, life changing experience of pregnancy and birth. Empowering women to be informed and involved in their childbirth experience brings me so much joy. I love seeing women realise how strong they are and I have seen how Calmbirth helps them to do that. I am also a huge supporter of getting partners involved in birth and that is one of my favourite aspects of the Calmbirth course."

I am so thankful for attending the course & for all of the education, knowledge & everything you brought to the table. The midwives & nurses had been asking about the course as they were so shocked for a first time Mum to have such a positive labour. So grateful to you for running this course here in Perth
