The She Births® method allows a deep transformation to take place within every couple. The process fosters a sense of trust in birth and security in each other. Not only are these factors critical to creating a more natural and beautiful birth experience, but also in creating the foundation for stronger, more resilient families going forward.
In 2015, the She Births® antenatal education program was scrutinised in large randomised controlled trials within two mixed demographic hospitals in Sydney, Australia. The study was conducted by Western Sydney University and the National Institute of Complementary Medicine.
The She Births® program was chosen for this study because it incorporates more complementary medicine modalities than other childbirth courses and our own private normal birth rates are so high (83%).
This groundbreaking research highlights dramatic improvements for the Study group, who received the She Births® program, in comparison to the Control group who received the standard hospital birth preparation course.
Australia’s largest not-for-profit health fund is currently conducting a trial within the private hospital system. Over 120 couples have been recruited by HCF to take part in the She Births® course free-of-charge.
It’s anticipated that this trial will result in significant reductions in birth cost, complications and the number of days babies are in the NICU. Preliminary results are promising and will be released early 2019.
The Birthing Institute is committed to ongoing research and development on a global scale. We are in conversation with researchers in the USA about implementation and trials on the east coast.
Dr Rakime Elmir of Western Sydney University has found that birth changes men. Those who are unprepared for birth can display symptoms of PTSD, including aggression, hypervigilance and detachment.
‘I have been recommending the She Births® program for many years to my pregnant clients, and the change in women after participating in the course is remarkable.
She Births® gives women the confidence to trust their bodies and the birth process. It provides them with the knowledge to make decisions that feel right for them as individuals.
One of the my favourite things about the program is how informed and excited the birth partner reports feeling!
