Calmbirth® is the only childbirth education program that requires all its educators to be practising midwives or trained birth professionals
Hi, I’m Bec, a Registered Midwife and Nurse, and Calmbirth Educator. I am passionate about empowering families through education, to help them navigate pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. I also hold a Masters in Public Health, and qualifications as a Yoga instructor, with additional certificates in Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga.
I believe that positive birth experiences come in many forms, and education is one of the best ways to prepare for your biggest adventure yet! As a midwife, I have been looking after women and their families across a variety of settings for over 7 years. I also have two children (and a fur-baby) of my own who continue to teach me new lessons about parenting every day
I first came across Calmbirth as a student midwife, I could see the impact the course had on opening the lines of communication between couples, giving them confidence to make informed decisions during their labour and birth, and approaching the experience with a strong and positive mindset. A few years down the line, while planning for my own VBAC, I made Calmbirth an important part of my birth preparation. In all honesty, I thought it would be most beneficial for my husband, as I was already a midwife and I thought I had all the information I needed. However, Calmbirth really allowed me to take my midwife hat off, and view my birth as a completely unique experience, giving me the tools to turn off my analytical mind when I needed to and really embrace the whole amazing birth experience. The evidence-based education program not only helped us make informed decisions, but also gave us the tools to work through some of the more challenging physical aspects of labour and birth. After my transformative second birth, I knew that I wanted to become a Calmbirth educator.
I run small group classes monthly, alternating locations between Parrearra (Sunshine Coast), and Samford (North Brisbane) at the Samford Community Hub – 2204 Mount Samson Road, Samford Valley. If group classes are sold out, I may also have availability to facilitate private classes to suit your schedule and location, so please feel free to reach out via email for more information if that is of interest to you. I am privileged to be able to share this important time with women and their families, and I really look forward to hearing from you soon!
