The Calmbirth® philosophy is based on the belief that pregnancy, labour and birth are normal life events, and that birth is a natural process to be experienced by the birthing couple and their baby in a joyful manner.

Referencing the work of obstetrician Dr Grantley Dick Reid (1889 -1959), as well as contemporary research in the disciplines of midwifery, obstetrics, neuroscience and mind/body medicine, Calmbirth® seeks to educate the pregnant couple in their understanding of the birth process.

The aim of the program is to help couples to become aware of their options in the birthing process, and to return birth to the safekeeping of families.
