‘I wanted to go to the course and learn about natural birth. It was an amazing experience to bond with Jess and to learn how to support her. Without the course I wouldn’t have known any of those things. The hospital based courses didn’t provide any of that information.
Birth was a really beautiful experience. I felt I could really support Jess – not just physically but emotionally too. ‘
‘Learning about neuroscience, the body and practical tools in the program empowered me to trust my inner strength and resilience. I now feel psychologically and emotionally stronger and more prepared for life in general. The skills you learn in the She Births® program are not simply birth skills, they are life skills that you use when managing difficult relationships, to high stress in the workplace. I would recommend anyone preparing for labour, birth and parenthood – while trying to manage a busy career – to do this program.’
‘This has been nothing short of life changing. I just wanted to thank you for guiding us so beautifully and for giving Catherine the courage to be the phenomenal woman that she is. Through She Births® and your prenatal yoga classes, she was able to build the mental and physical strength that she needed to fully embrace the whole experience. You have a phenomenal product that every pregnant woman needs, wants and deserves.’
‘I am extremely grateful and also humbled by your generosity of spiritand knowledge about birth. She Births® allowed us to trust my body to achieve the birth we wanted. I’m sure that the gentle birth has influenced the calm nature of my little girl. The techniques I learnt in the course were absolutely critical to the birth outcome, but the most important skill She Births® gave me was the confidence to do it. ‘
our program allowed them to create a beautiful birth, no matter what unfolded
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.
Results were published in British Medical Journal and Midwifery Journal in 2016.
