Professionals Workshops

Book and pay for a workshop for midwives, caregivers and allied health professionals

The Calmbirth Mind-Body-Birth Connection Workshops were such a hit via Zoom that we have decided to continue conducting the Workshop via Zoom for 2024 so that we can attract midwives, student midwives and allied health professionals form far and wide.

Calmbirth® – Prepares you emotionally, mentally, and physically for birth. We take a very holistic and evidence-based approach to our Education with the fundamental underpinning of the Program being the Mind-Body-Birth Connection. Pregnant couples and Birth workers alike are educated and reminded in our courses, of the resources the female body has to grow, nurture, and birth our babies and the importance of acknowledging the role that our beliefs and emotions have towards childbirth, on not only the physical but also the emotional wellbeing of mothers and babies.

The Mind-body-birth Workshop for caregivers and allied health professionals aims to provide midwives & students, doulas, medical staff and allied health professionals with a holistic and scientifically proven approach to maternity care from Calmbirth, Australia’s leading and highly recommended childbirth education providers.

The principles and skills presented during the workshop focuses around the exploration and teaching of the mind-body-birth connection and its powerful influence on pregnancy, labour and birth.

Karen is also the Southern Highlands Calmbirth Educator, a practising Registered Midwife (RM), and a Registered Nurse (RN) and is the daughter of the founder of Calmbirth®, Peter Jackson.

Karen is a highly experienced Calmbirth® educator having seen over 4,000 couples complete the Calmbirth® program since 2009. She is taking Calmbirth to the next level by continually evolving it and incorporating it into the antenatal structure of as many maternity hospitals in Australia. Presently, the Calmbirth Program is in eight major maternity hospitals in NSW, both public and private.

Karen has a passion for sharing her knowledge and experience with pregnant couples and caregivers, and she’s doing her bit to change how our society and culture views and experiences birth. Our vision is to change the existing birth culture for future generations.

Karen says:

“I feel we are making such an enormous contribution to changing the way couples experience birth in our society. Not only does our program help to reduce unnecessary interventions, but most importantly our couples speak far more positively about their birth experiences, no matter how their birth unfolds. I am proud of the fact that Calmbirth is helping to change birth outcomes and experiences here in Australia and abroad.”

Karen believes the Calmbirth program restores our faith in the wonderment of childbirth and the vital role a family unit plays in having a positive birth experience.
