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. 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-Kate at the birth centre in Randwick, Melinda realised how incredible birth could be, and wanted to share this expereince 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.
Having been in the field of pregnancy and birth for over 9 years, Melinda has attended many births as a Doula. She is now birthing with couples for their second and third baby’s. Being involved with parents to be throughout their pregnancy, labour and birth allows Melinda to share a special bond, each birth is different and therefor it is prepared for in it’s own individual way. Visiting new parents after birth in their home or birth place allows you to have one on one care, incorporating all family members. Melinda shares stories of couples having acupuncture together leading up to the birth of their baby, breathing, and positioning for labour and acupressure techniques taught in her Birth Mentoring sessions. She allows you to step into your own and feel relaxed about the up and coming 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.
