Our C-Section birth experience was so special

As first time parents, we weren’t sure of what to expect when it came to the birth of our daughter. Our lovely midwife Sally always taught us that knowledge is power, especially during childbirth. With this in mind, we decided to do Calmbirth and cannot recommend it highly enough

Plan A is just the start…

At 40+5 we decided to be induced for medical reasons. Induction was never on my plan and I’d only heard horror stories of cascading interventions. Thankfully Sally our Calmbirth Educator sent me a reminder that there are lots of letters in the alphbet with plan A-Z.

I decided to take control of what I could and set about to fill my oxytocin cup by practising the Calmbirth techniques before heading to hospital that night.

Once I got to the hospital, I settled into my ward room and my husband went home for a good nights sleep before the ‘big day’ tomorrow.

Getting to know Calmbirth Educator Sally Crothers

Sally Crothers is a midwife and Calmbirth Educator who is passionate about educating women and their families. She strongly believes that knowledge is power and having strong relationships between the members of a multidisciplinary team.”For almost all of my midwifery career I have worked in small rural communities, including Ayers Rock, Alice Springs, Roma and Chinchilla. In these areas, with limited personnel I have learnt the value of having a strong relationship between obstetricians, midwives and all of the multi -disciplinary team.”So, this leads me to “Calmbirth with Lanziz and Sally”. When Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Dr Lanziz Homar approached me and suggested that we work as a team to teach Calmbirth it just made sense, and really combined all of my birthing philosophies. To be able to work in partnership with Lanziz and educate women and families to approach their birth feeling calm and relaxed, is a really positive step to providing outstanding care to the women of Toowoomba.When a woman leaves our class saying “I am so excited about the birth, I can’t wait”, I really feel like we are achieving our goal, of “changing the world one birth at a time. “
