Why prepare for birth

Some births go to plan, while others require a more flexible approach. Our experience is that all births can benefit from good solid preparation so you and your partner feel more in control, calmer and confident. It makes sense to prepare for the big life moments. And for most of us having a baby is certainly one of those.

If you’re like us, you like to feel ready and prepared. To research the options. To do everything you possibly can to navigate the learning curve you’re on. You want credible and sensible information to help you make informed choices.

When you prepare for your labour and birth with us, that’s exactly what you will receive. There isn’t anything earth mother, magical or mystical. It’s about having solid knowledge, skills, tools and techniques that work with your hospital advice, not contradict it.

Our programs aim to give you confidence, calm and control. We teach the Birth Sense skills with an extensive 2.5-hour online video course – Why? Because it works better in the comfort of your own home! After all, it’s your birth and you should be able to prepare the way that suits you.
