The labour dance…

Isaac was due on 26 August 2022. We attended Bec’s Calmbirth in Mittagong mid July. We drove up from Melbourne and made a weekend of it. I knew deep inside that it was very important that Leon and I educate ourselves about a physiological birth because we had deep rooted anxiety about it. This is because I have severe anxiety and we come from a country where elective caesareans are the norm and it was just assumed that I would have one too.

Getting To Know Calmbirth Educator Bec Rogers

Bec Rogers is a wife, a mother and has been a midwife for over 11 years practicing her entire career where she trained at the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney.

“I started out early into my midwifery career practicing as a group practice midwife (MGP) shortly after graduating. It was during these years I witnessed the incredible difference Calmbirth can have on a woman’s birth experience and journey into motherhood. I used to recommend a baby moon down to Bowral for the weekend, attending a Calmbirth course, to all my women and partners I cared for. Most attended, and as a result the difference was seen in so many women’s birth experience’s through the confidence they had in their body, and ability to trust in the process of birth and surrender to the empowering incredible journey that birth and motherhood truly is.

“I myself also had the pleasure of attending Peter Jackson’s class back in 2013 before the birth of my first daughter, and remain incredibly grateful for the knowledge and skills I learnt prior to giving birth. I went into the experience with extended knowledge, confidence to make informed decisions, and trust in my body’s ability to birth my baby exactly as intended.  As a result, I have had two very relaxed, calm and fearless and empowering water births, welcoming both my daughters earth side. 

“Three years ago I made the tree change to the Southern =Highlands and haven’t looked back. This change has opened up career opportunities including becoming a Calmbirth educator and now working along-side both Karen and Peter, a bit of a pinch myself career moment.”
