Our dream is to have She Births® available to every parent in the world…
This is the next step.
Here at The Birthing Institute, we know that parenting is the most important job in the world. We believe in diversity, extending parenting leave and the inclusion of the #forgottenwomen.
We are delighted that corporate workplaces around Sydney are in touch to include She Births® as part of their employee wellness program.
How do workplaces benefit if you do She Births®?
In Australia currently, 30% of women describe their birth as traumatic, 90% of families experience increased conflict in the year after birth and 2,000 men and women are diagnosed with pre or postnatal depression every week.
At She Births® we know that empowerment comes from knowledge. You make big decisions every day of your working career and you do this on the back of research. Once you have the right information you can make the best decisions for you and your team. Guess what? Birth isn’t actually that different.
Birth is not a walk in the park. It can be tough for many and it can have a long lasting effect mentally and physically either in a negative or a positive way. You actually have far more agency around this than you realise.
A positive birth experience means that you recover well and get to enjoy your start on the parenting journey. It means you enjoy your parental leave, that your relationship with your baby and partner thrives and you can return to work ready to progress your career while being a great (#goodenough) parent.
Did you know that mums who have higher expectations of birth, along with education, are more likely to feel satisfied with their birth experience?
