Calmbirth® is the only childbirth education program that requires all its educators to be practising midwives or trained birth professionals
Hi, I’m Bec. I am a wife, a mother and a midwife.
I have been a midwife for over 11 years now, practicing my entire career where I trained at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney. I started out early into my midwifery career practicing as a group practice midwife (MGP) shortly after graduating. It was during these years I witnessed the incredible difference Calmbirth can have on a woman’s birth experience and journey into motherhood. I used to recommend to all the women and partners I cared for that they have babymoon in Bowral and attend a Calmbirth course. Most attended, and as a result the difference was seen in so many women’s birth experience’s through the confidence they had in their body, and ability to trust in the process of birth and surrender to the empowering incredible journey that birth and motherhood truly is.
I myself also had the pleasure of attending Peter Jackson’s course back in 2013 before the birth of my first daughter, and remain incredibly grateful for the knowledge and skills I learnt prior to giving birth. I went into the experience with extended knowledge, confidence to make informed decisions, and trust in my body’s ability to birth my baby exactly as intended. As a result i have had two very relaxed, calm and fearless and empowering water-births, welcoming both my daughters earth side.
Three years ago I made the tree change to the Southern Highlands and haven’t looked back. This change has opened up career opportunities including becoming a Calmbirth Educator and now, working along-side both Karen and Peter, a bit of a pinch myself career moment.
