Three Ways To Learn

Refresh your Knowledge. Refresh your skills. Refresh your confidence. This option is for couples who’ve previously attended a Calmbirth workshop.
In the Calmbirth Refresher Course, we’ll review all the main Calmbirth principles. This will give you a helpful reminder of how to use the skills and tools to work with your labour, not against it.
We’ll revisit your previous birth experience, and discuss what worked and what you would like to do differently. There’ll also be a recap of breathing techniques and you’ll get to enjoy a lovely relaxation to prepare you for the birth of this baby.
