Southern Highlands Calmbirth


The one day Calmbirth refresher class is intended for couples who have previously attended a full weekend Calmbirth class. The one day refresher class is available to couples who are expecting their 2nd, 3rd or subsequent babies. The Refresher class is appropriately arranged so as to give pregnant couples once again the opportunity to review and fine tune the beliefs, knowledge and skills underpinning the Calmbirth philosophy of childbirth education.

Calmbirth believes it is important for parents expecting their second child, to realise that each labour, each birth is different even for the same mother. And furthermore, each infant is born with a distinct temperament that may require specific parenting techniques for nurturing after they’re born… Yes, each baby is definitely a unique individual and therefore it is usually prudent and practical for the couple to prepare emotionally and psychologically for the birth of each new member of their family

For many couples who are preparing for the birth of their second child one could describe the following scenario, this simple scenario has been constructed based on many conversations Peter Jackson and Karen McClay have had with mothers over many years, it goes like this.

“Baby number one is now running around as a toddler, and both parents are back working. There does not seem to be sufficient time in each day to meet all the demands made on them both. Couples often experience difficulties in coordinating some quality time together so as they can both specifically focus on preparing for the birth of their second child.”

Here is the possible solution! Why not attend a Calmbirth refresher class? This refresher class provides an excellent opportunity for expectant couples to step out of their busy life’s routines for a day, setting aside some quality time together to specifically focus on each other and on their baby who is expected to arrive soon.  The Calmbirth refresher class offers a peaceful day of relaxation, inspiration and revision of the Calmbirth prenatal education course principles.

This one day course is sufficient to evoke once again the knowledge previously learned and can also be instrumental in reinforcing the couple’s commitment to use that knowledge again and again, as well as to practice the skills they originally learnt as part of their ongoing preparation for the birth of baby number two.

The venue will be either in Bowral or at the Calmbirth Centre in Mittagong depending on the numbers.

Couples will be notified in advance who will be the facilitator of their particular Calmbirth refresher class as well as the location of the venue. Facilitators will either be Karen McClay, Director of Calmbirth, or Peter Jackson, Founder of Calmbirth. This information will be determined closer to the class date.

There will be an hour break for lunch. Morning tea will be provided.


The cost of the one day refresher class is $300 per couple, to be paid upon booking.
