Welcome to the world's only Scientifically Proven Program

Where Science and nature come together to create a beautiful birth

Reduce pain with our toolkit of skills

Our comprehensive childbirth education provides you and your partner with the biggest toolkit of skills to support you through pregnancy, labour and parenthood. By using active birthing, yoga, massage, acupressure, breathing, relaxation techniques and more, you can reduce pain and achieve a more natural and safer birth.

Randomised Controlled Trial Results

She Births® is the only scientifically verified childbirth education program in the world. When compared to standard hospital classes in randomised controlled trials (176 couples) we are proven to lower epidural rates (65%), caesarean section rates (44%) as well as resuscitation of babies (53%) and even shorten labour by 32 minutes. Find out more in this ground-breaking study, published in the British Medical Journal.

Scientifically verified program

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.

65% reduction in epidural rates
44% reduction in caesarean sections
50% reduction in medical augmentation using artificial means
53% reduction in resuscitation of babies
12% reduction in perenial trauma

Significant Results

In the last decade numerous international studies have been undertaken in isolation on certain elements of birth preparation with results showing marginal improvement. According to Cochrane Review other studies of childbirth education programs on their own have not shown any significant improvements.

This is the first time a study on birth education has shown such significant results.  There is now great potential to positively change the way women and critically their partners prepare for birth around the world.

The Complementary Therapies for Labour and Birth Study gives evidence to the fact that it is possible to create a better birth with the right education and demonstrates that more normal births are also safer for our babies. It suggests that the commonly experienced cascade of intervention is avoidable with the right education and the over treatment within maternity systems can be changed via empowerment of couples.

Season 4 of the She Births® Podcast new Episodes!

When a birth plan goes to plan
Deb Symond O'Neil

Welcome to Season 4, Episode 1.

When a birth plan goes to plan.
This podcast is a conversation with mum and dad, Deb and Ned with their doula, Nadine Richardson.

We recorded their Deb and Ned’s story just before COVID hit and did not want to share at the time because we knew so many mums could not have doula’s and some even unable to have their partners in the room during birth! Overall it has been a terrible year for a lot of families and for some even traumatic so our heart goes out to you.

Deb and Ned’s story is about teamwork. It is about taking the three essential steps:
1. Form the belief you can do it and get the education to support that. 2. Craft the team around you that will be skilled and loving to advocate exactly as you want then 3. LET GO and allow it all to happen and unfold naturally.
