Pippa's Birth

My partner Wil and I attended your Calmbirth course in March when I was 6 months pregnant, because I wanted a natural birth without any medical pain relief. Your course gave me the confidence that I could achieve this and I did.

Kelly, Torrie and Baby A.'s Birth Story

We both wanted a natural drug free birth. I started yoga, swimming and walking and cut out all of the no no foods. No caffeine, not even a sip of alcohol, no panadol throughout my pregnancy.  We really wanted the most natural start for Bub.

 

Finn's Birth Story

When I found out that I was pregnant I had two fears about birth; that my low threshold for pain would lead me to give up in labour and that the uncertainty of birth would mean I would have to surrender control (something I’m not good at!)  

A Fathers Story - A Man’s Perspective

Last week my wife Katrina gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. She had a natural, drug free birth, a 5.5hour labour and said the experience was "beautiful".

 

Archie's Birth Story

Antony and I attended calmbirth classes with Tracey, after a recommendation from a fellow school parent during an information night at my son’s school. I was anxious about the impending birth, as the birth of my first child had been long and unpleasant. 

Alexander's Birth Story

Alexander, your birth story begins at around 6 am on Wednesday April 9, 2008 when I first felt some weak sensations in my uterus. I was so excited. By the time Jamie, dad, woke up at 7, I was feeling regular tightening at about 3 minutes apart.

Elia's Birth Story - Elia’s beautiful birth

Now that I have my beautiful baby boy with me I look back to the nine months I carried him with I guess you’d call it curiosity. I’m curious as to why I was so consumed with how his birth would be and how I could influence how it was played out.

Finn's story

We called Tracey on the Tuesday as my waters had broken yet labour had not progressed. Following our conversation we were given information in the form of a study about the potential risks of infection following waters breaking.
