Calmbirth® is the only childbirth education program that requires all its educators to be practising midwives or trained birth professionals
As a midwife one of my passions has always been education of our women and their families. I firmly believe that knowledge is power. One of the other foundations of my practice has been strong relationships between the members of a multidisciplinary team.
For almost all of my midwifery career I have worked in small rural communities, including Ayers Rock, Alice Springs, Roma and Chinchilla. In these areas, with limited personnel I have learnt the value of having a strong relationship between obstetricians, midwives and all of the multi -disciplinary team.
When a mother presents to the Chinchilla hospital in labour at 2am and is 32 weeks pregnant, and you are the only midwife in the hospital you really need to know that the doctor you wake up is going to be responsive and able to provide the skills you need.
For the past 18 months I have been working in Toowoomba, and am learning that these key relationships continue to be vital to the care of our women. In a large maternity unit, women and their families still need that attention to detail and care that comes from good communication between all parties.
So, this leads me to “Calmbirth with Lanziz and Sally”. When Lanziz approached me and suggested that we work as a team to teach Calmbirth it just made sense, and really combined all of my birthing philosophies. To be able to work in partnership with Lanziz and educate women and families to approach their birth feeling calm and relaxed, is a really positive step to providing outstanding care to the women of Toowoomba.
When a woman leaves our class saying “I am so excited about the birth, I can’t wait”, I really feel like we are achieving our goal, of “changing the world one birth at a time. “
