Changing Your Mind, Changes Your Labour

What are Parents Saying?
It might seem unconstructive to give 5 stars across everything, but we had no expectations coming into Calmbirth and were really impressed with the course. Whilst we haven’t given birth yet, the classes have already helped me feel more empowered, confident, capable and calm leading up to the birth. You’ve planted the seed to help change my mindset and feel ready for what lays ahead. Calmbirth has also had an immediate positive impact on my marriage, since doing the course, my beautiful husband has been much more supportive (not that he wasn’t already) but it has helped us feel more united, has helped us make decisions together and has given him some really practical tools to involve him in the process. I couldn’t recommend Calmbirth enough, and I’m actually looking forward to the birthing process now. Tracey, thank you so much for helping me build my confidence up to prepare for and enjoy this experience.
Tracey was excellent! Her non-judgemental approach and calm open demeanour created a beautiful atmosphere where we felt comfortable and receptive. I think the course is particularly important for partners and I loved how Tracey engaged them and made them take notes!! I would absolutely recommend the calmbirth course with Tracey and I’m looking forward to the next instalment – Transform Parenting!
Tracey’s teachings of the calmbirth course are a MUST for all parents-to-be, regardless of whether it’s your 1st or 5th baby! It will empower you to make decisions that are right for YOU and your baby, and the strength and wisdom to guide others to facilitate that experience. Couldn’t recommend highly enough and I am eternally grateful to Tracey for her love during and after the birth of our son.
Calmbirth is a fantastic, empowering course. It allowed my partner and I to learn about the birthing process in a really positive way, removing fear and anxieties we had from pre-conceived ideas and tales told by others. I strongly recommend taking the time to do this course so that you too can learn the simple steps which can allow you to have a more positive labour experience and continue the cycle of sharing positive labour stories with others.
My husband and I really enjoyed the class and learning all about how to prepare for a calmbirth. We have been practising the meditation every night which has been amazing for getting us into the right headspace and just feeling better generally about labour. I would recommend this class for all pregnant ladies from now on – especially the part which helps partners understand the role they can play and what support they can offer and how to offer it.
I regularly recommend Kellie’s calmbirth classes to everyone (pregnant or not), it changes your perception of birth and makes you feel so empowered! It turns it from this ‘scary’ experience, to something beautiful and exciting! I felt so empowered after my class I literally couldn’t wait to give birth!
I can’t thank you enough for your passion and commitment to Calm Birth. The experience was very special for my partner and I in many ways. We have always been interested in the mind-body connection and calming ourselves to better our lives but your course reinforced and increased that interest tenfold. Over those two days you armed us. We walked in doubtful and almost victimized and left armed and empowered. Instead of feeling uneasy about the birth we are welcoming it as our chance to perform. Just like a well trained athlete. We both love that you absolutely love what you do. It showed in every way and was contagious to the group. Thank you so much for making us family. We hope we can continue to connect in other ways in the future through your breathing courses or other things you might offer.
Calmbirth is a must for those wanting to view labour and birth in a positive way. It changed our perspective and helped to block out many of the negative stories of labour that we had heard. It’s practical, provides solid information and helps to work on the mind/body in preparation for labour.
We would not hesitate to recommend Calmbirth and Kellie to anyone expecting!
I started the class being totally afraid of giving birth, having the perception that it would be one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. I left the class feeling positive and conifdent that I had the ability to undertake this beautiful event calmly and was actually looking forward to the birth of our little man. My views and thoughts were completely changed and my personal belief is that the class is invaluable. Kellie is incredible, best weekend we have spent in a long time.
I really felt that Tracey was an authentic, enlivened facilitator. She had all of our best interests at heart and this was a clear thread through all instruction, activities and information. I appreciated the seamless transversing between theory, evidence, practice, wisdom and the heart! I really don’t know how we would have learnt as much as we did without attending Calmbirth. We left feeling empowered and enthused about what lies ahead. Time and practice will tell if we have a calm birth, but, I look forward to seeing how we can use our learning throughout our birth and parenting journey.
