Calmbirth Classes with Melinda Webb
Calmbirth classes with Melinda are available for groups or as individuals. The best time to attend a class is between 24-35 weeks gestation, however clients have used Calmbirth when over due. Each class provides you with techniques that become life skills.
You gain knowledge in:
- The physiology of birth and how a woman’s body is designed to function in labour.
- How to eliminate fear and tension that can inhibit labour and birth.
- Simple, effective breathing techniques to relax and work with your body in labour.
- Acupressure, massage techniques and positioning for labour.
- For partners or birthing companions we equip them with ways to work with mum during her labour, skills that are useful pre-labour and postnatally.
- As parents it provides you with insight into bonding and the developing parent/baby relationship.
Melinda is a qualified Dr. Chinese medicine, Calmbirth Practitioner, Doula and has two young adult children. After giving birth to her second child, Milla at the birth centre in Randwick, Melinda realised how incredible birth could be, and wanted to share this experience and educate parents to be on how to make a difference in birth. Remy, Melinda’s first child was born after having an induction, and the difference between the two births was incredible. Melinda realised how important it is to prepare both physically and emotionally for the birth of your baby.
In clinic Melinda works in Women’s Health & Wellbeing, using acupuncture and herbal medicine, and coaches women through their pregnancy. She provides many tips and great tools for both mum and her birthing companion.
Please note breastfeeding and newborn care are not heavily discussed and this should be taken as an alternate class, we offer both breastfeeding and newborn care workshops.
