In today's society, Victoria's Birth Statistics point towards incredible levels of intervention and one of the highest Caesarean rates in the world.

How can you help women be better informed about their choices?

How can you offer greater support to woman postnataly who have experienced a traumatic birth?

How can you help change birth practices to focus on wellness for both mother and baby through pregnancy, birth and beyond?

We are offering a specialised one-day workshop that is designed to inform and educate health practitioners on the current status of birth. We also welcome any people that offer services at births ( Photographers, acupuncturists )

This workshop is designed for Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Chinese Medicine Practitioners, Massage Therapists, Myotherapists, Reflexologists, Counsellors.

What past practitioners have to say:

The practitioner workshops are fantastic. Lael has a wealth of information to share from her many years of experience and she does a wonderful job presenting it in a clear and informative way. There were many things I learnt from the workshop that hadn’t come across in my training nor in the years that I have been treating. I would certainly recommend this workshop to anyone who sees pregnant women and babies in their own practice.

Dr.Faye Kendall - Osteopath


About Birth's practitioner workshop was invaluable. The information that I gained from the day allowed me to confidently communicate with my patients about the birthing process and sedate any fears they may have. It was great to get the 'facts' as opposed to the 'myths' which can be associated with pregnancy and birth.

Dr.Ashley Gordon - Chinese Medical Practitioner

CALMBIRTH - (PRIVATE CLASSES AVAILABLE) WORKSHOPS

I understand that many of you are over zoom!! However I can assure you that the workshop is very interactive, you will learn breathing/relaxation techniques, birthing positions, massage and we have lots of conversation and time to ask questions. Everything to prepare you for a positive birth experience. But what couples have enjoyed is the opportunity to have a shared experience with other pregnant women and their partners in a time where connection is so important. Please be in touch if you are experiencing financial difficulties (I have a limited number of spaces available for those experiencing significant financial hardship).
