I must say I was super surprised (& excited) to receive a message a few days ago saying this Calmbirth couple had just had their baby - 4 weeks early! They finished Calmbirth just in time.Congratulations Verity & Dan on the safe arrival of August James, thank you for sharing your story. "Calmbirth really was in hindsight such a crucial part of our antenatal care. We came out of this experience feeling like we really were a team and managed a delivery using all the techniques we wanted to.""Thank you Cherie for such a positive experience, and glad we managed to finish our classes with you only a few days before labour!!"
"Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go". This famous quote by Hermann Hesse speaks volumes about the strength of surrendering to birth.
Having a baby is one of the most memorable days of your life.....From all the ‘grandmothers’ I have met at births - they all have a story.... the story of their birth - they never forget it. It’s a day that’s with them forever...So why do women in our culture have the belief that they can just ‘turn up’ to their birth when then labour starts? When we get married we spend tens of thousands of Dollars on this ‘1 day’, yet we don’t see the need to spend a lot less on preparing for giving birth...
Bree, Charlie & Louis welcomed beautiful ‘Neve’ into the world in June! Bree & Charlie did a Private class with me via Zoom, over four classes we worked through how they were feeling going into their second birth and preparing for a VBAC!Bree was incredible in advocating for herself and her choices, she had the knowledge and was confident - and she DID it!! I have to share this text she sent me after Neve’s birth that sums up how empowered she felt...(shared with permission).“I literally balled my eyes out and was like ‘I did it! I fucking did it’.... everyone just laughed haha. Thank you for your help. Calmbirth really helped, it was amazing.”

Lael, we just wanted to give our heartfelt thanks for the private Calmbirth Class you did with us. We were both so nervous and worried after experiencing a previous loss and your calm, reassuring presence helped alleviate many fears and give us the confidence to approach this birth with trust. Thankyou so much. x

We just wanted to write and say that the Calmbirth workshop weekend was probably the best money we have spent this entire pregnancy. We learned so much and feel so excited about our little one coming. I can't tell you how much more confident Pete feels now and he keeps reminding me every day to Breathe!

My husband and I feel very grateful that we spent time being educated by Lael. As a previous anxiety sufferer, we walked through my fears and doubts, and somehow my fears turned into feelings of empowerment after our sessions. Thankyou Lael for your love, warmth, honesty and open-minded approach.
