Courses

Many couples plan a babymoon as a time to reflect upon their approaching birth and journey into parenting; and the Blue Mountains is the perfect destination for you to be able to combine this with a weekend Calmbirth course.

Come and fully immerse your senses as you gaze at the endless vistas of cliffs  and valleys; listen to the sounds of the bush and the babbling streams; smell the fresh mountain air and the trees and flowers; go for bush walks and feel nature all around you; and enjoy the tastes and flavours of different foods.

Book into the Blue Mountains Calmbirth weekend course and relax as you learn all about birth in the comfort of a serene home setting. Groups are small and intimate, and many new friendships are often formed as a result. Unwind over the morning and afternoon tea breaks; where you will be served fresh delicious and wholesome food; then enjoy your lunch break at one of the many local cafes.

You will leave the Blue Mountains Calmbirth course with the knowledge, the skills and the confidence for labour; and fully empowered to work together, as well as with your caregivers to bring your baby into the world.

Classes run over a weekend from 9:30am – 5:00pm both days

“We wanted to let you know that our beautiful little boy Riley Emon – Eccols was born after 2 hours of established labour. Even our midwife said it was the most peaceful birth that she had witnessed. Thankyou for all of your support and guidance, it really made our birth experience a peaceful journey that we will keep close to our hearts forever.”

Cynthia, David and Riley

“Our beautiful little girl Murphy Katherine Ford was born after 5 hours of  labour;  and was the most enjoyable, amazing, hard and intense time of my life. Jared was brilliant, keeping me calm by assisting me with my breathing and visualisations so much so that I sang, rocked and danced to my music! Thankyou for giving us the skills, that enabled us to have such an incredible birth experience.”

Sara, Jared and Murphy

“Our beautiful little boy Liam was born after 4 hours of an induced labour. Thankyou, for giving us the most amazing techniques that you taught us.”

Danya, Adam and Liam

“We wanted to let you know that our beautiful baby Florence was born by Casearean birth, after a very complicated labour that went along so many different paths. We truly believe that in having done the Calmbirth course, it empowered us in every way to be able to work with our caregivers and to be involved with every decision made. So thankyou for everything that you taught us. It was amazing.”
