The Calmbirth® Mind-Body-Birth Connection workshop for caregivers and allied health aims to provide midwives, student midwives, doulas & medical staff and allied health professionals with a holistic and scientifically proven approach to maternity care.

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.

Topics Covered Include:

  • The power of beliefs and the role they play in the experience of birth
  • The mind – body connection and birth: how it can work for or against the physiology of birthing
  • Language and birth
  • The breath: a powerful tool for labour and birth
  • Tools for creating a calmbirth environment

The Calmbirth® Mind-body-Birth Connection workshops for Caregivers and Allied Health are facilitated by the Director of Calmbirth®, Karen McClay. She is also a Southern Highlands Calmbirth Educator, 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, Calmbirth 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 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.
