Getting To Know Calmbirth Educator Emma Watson


Emma is a Nurse, Midwife and passionate Calmbirth Educator located in Hobart. She became a midwife because of her passion to support and empower women through pregnancy, labour, birth and the postpartum period and she does this by working as a Continuity of Care midwife in Hobart.
She says, “It wasn’t until I supported a woman who had attended a Calmbirth course that I witnessed how calmly and confidently a baby could be birthed into the world. It was at that moment that I realised how important knowledge was during birth and how powerful women truly are when fully aware of their incredible bodies.
“My goal  is to teach as many families as I can about the body and birth as a natural, physiological process, providing them with tools to support and work with their bodies during their birth, whatever their journey looks like.
“Through the knowledge and tools that Calmbirth teaches I look forward to demystifying birth, reducing any anxieties or fears and working towards a community who admire and feel confident and empowered from all births.”
