We have been committed to the Canberra community for the past 20 years, and have received incredible accolades for what we do from both our families and the medical health professionals we support. Please help us to keep going through this period and support all families during this special time of need.

More about the sponsorship program

Please consider supporting Transform Your Birth Canberra course to reach out to all women and their families by participating in this program and nominating a fee to suit your circumstances. 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 Transform Your Birth?

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 Transform Your Birth Educator and fit in a Transform Your Birth 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.

Private Sessions

These sessions are available for people who are high profile, private or have specific needs and would prefer not to be in a group situation.
Your private session involves 10 hours of childbirth and parenting preparation, utilising the specific teachings of Transform Your Birth, but also tailored to your special circumstances. They can be offered face to face, or via Zoom – and times will be scheduled by negotiation. The cost for these sessions is $1600.
