How much does a course cost?

The cost of Calmbirth in Canberra is the RRP of $550, inclusive of both you and your partner or birth support person. This includes the book and access to our online audio relaxations.

Another option is to pay a sponsorship amount of $650 for both you and your partner, with $100 going towards a sponsorship fund helping other women in Canberra who would not be able to afford to access this valuable program. This support is gratefully received and goes directly to support families in Canberra.

For those who would like to do the course, but due to financial situations are unable to pay the full amount we have a sponsorship fund that you can access by sending us an email. These places are funded by other generous participants who have understood the immense value of this program and would like to support others to access it. Please contact us at [email protected] with your request. This offer is only available at Transform Parenting.

More about the sponsorship program

Please consider supporting Calmbirth Canberra to reach out to all women and their families by participating in this program and nominating a fee to suit your circumstances. This offer is only available through www.calmbirthcanberra.com.au. As a result of the sponsorship fund, there are places available to those who really would like to do the course, but due to financial situations are unable to pay the full amount. These places are funded by other generous participants who have understood the immense value of this program and would like to support others to access it regardless of financial status. If you really would like to do the course, and would like to access some support from this fund, please contact us at [email protected] with your request.

When is the ideal time to attend Calmbirth?

We see couples in all stages of their pregnancies; however, we find it is most beneficial for couples to come in their second trimester or at the beginning of their third trimester (approx. 30 weeks). This will allow enough time before your due date to practice the relaxation activities assigned to you by your Calmbirth Educator and fit in a Calmbirth Canberra pre-natal catch-up group visit. 

If you’re feeling particularly anxious about birth  in your early pregnancy, please feel free to attend earlier. We also offer opportunities to revisit our classes prior to birth. 

If there is a higher chance you might need to have a caesarean section, please contact us before enrolling and we can assess your needs and potentially offer you an alternative form of birth preparation specific to your circumstances.

More Information About Refresher Classes

The one-day refresher class is available to couples who are expecting their 2nd, 3rd or subsequent babies. The Refresher class is appropriately arranged, so as to give pregnant couples, once again, the opportunity to review and fine tune the beliefs, knowledge and skills underpinning the Calmbirth philosophy of childbirth education.

Please note: The refresher classes will ONLY proceed if three or more couples are booked in. We will notify you if the class will not be proceeding.

It is important for parents expecting their second child, to realise that each labour and each birth is different, even for the same mother. Furthermore, each infant is born with a distinct temperament that may require specific parenting techniques for nurturing after they’re born. Yes, each baby is definitely a unique individual and therefore, it is usually prudent and practical for the couple to prepare emotionally and psychologically for the birth of each new member of their family.

Refresher Classes / Future Pregnancies

Refresher classes are held over 1 day from 9:30am – 5:00pm
These classes are strictly ONLY for those couples who have completed the Calmbirth classes before.
Refresher classes are $330 per couple. This is assuming you still have your Calmbirth book from when you completed the Calmbirth Program previously.

We only hold a certain amount of refresher classes over the course of the year. If no classes suit your schedule, please email the office at [email protected] and let us know. We might be able to squeeze you into a regular class.

Special Offer to Calmbirth Canberra Participants (Revisits)

If you complete the Calmbirth program with Calmbirth in Canberra, you are welcome to revisit a Calmbirth Canberra Group program later in your pregnancy for FREE. This is very useful if you completed Calmbirth early, and need a top up closer to the big day.

Is this course suitable for planned cesareans?

If you are planning a cesarean section, we recommend booking a private 2-hour session with Tracey. This session will cover specific Calmbirth topics relevant when having a cesarean, such as: preparing for the birth, mind-body connection, calming the breath, relaxation and visualisation, and the partner’s role in the birth. A private session costs $300.
