Getting To Know Calmbirth Educator Yanna Klaassen


Congratulations on becoming pregnant and starting an incredible journey towards parenthood or growing your family. My name is Yanna and I am excited to be a part of your journey. I’m a Registered Nurse and Midwife of over 10 years and I have a passion for supporting women and their families to improved health and emotional wellbeing.
My passion lies in facilitating an empowering journey through the sharing of knowledge, exploration of beliefs/fears, and transforming them to offer a connection to the innate power within. Childbirth is a deeply meaningful and significant event affecting the life-long journey of parenting.
Through this incredible course, I hope to provide tools that you can utilize along your journey. Education is pivotal in our world today, so come and spend a weekend in a safe, supportive and inclusive space, learning and asking questions all about childbirth. I run group classes on weekends in Bundaberg or I’m happy to provide tailored times if weekends aren’t suited in the comfort of your own home. Please feel free to contact me for more information, I’d love to help you realize your birthing visions.
