You’ve likely heard of calm birthing, but do you know what it’s all about?  Perhaps you’re wondering if it’s for you.  If so, this episode is right up your alley as I take a dive into the ins and outs of calm birthing with special guest, Lauretta Hamilton.

Lauretta is a midwife based in Ballarat, mama of two girls and a calm birth and postpartum educator and acuneedling midwife.  She is passionate about helping all women have a birth and postpartum experience that empowers them, whatever that experience looks like.  Through online and in person calmbirth classes, Lauretta equips women with the tools to help them and their babies thrive on delivery day and beyond.   

In this episode, Lauretta shares 5 things we didn’t know about calmbirth, why it isn’t just for those wanting a natural birth and how it’s not just for first time parents.  We discuss the importance of the support person and Lauretta shares some fascinating things about hormones which you may not already know.

Relax and unwind as we go into this beautiful topic today.
