The Calmbirth of James

Birth Stories

By Stuart & Helen Melville

Stuart and I cannot recommend the Calmbirth course highly enough. We thoroughly recommend it to ALL our friends. Calmbirth really made our birthing experience a positive one, we loved that you could easily apply Calmbirth techniques, and it worked!


Our gorgeous son James was born on his due date (19/12/2018), by a vaginal birth with no intervention at all. 

Our birth was started at 8:30pm and James was here at 2:31am on the 19 Dec.

Stuart was confident about how he could assist and be involved. He was absolutely a fantastic support and encouraged me throughout the labour, and reminded me of the wave, one sensation closer to birthing our baby.

He was truely brilliant. He was confident in himself after doing the Calmbirth program and felt he knew exactly what to do to support me. 


I was active in our labour unit right up until I’d say 1:30am, I had a positive mindset and Calmbirth really helped us to set that positive experience.

I initially struggled with breastfeeding, and would say I have used Calmbirth techniques to get through those initial 6 weeks. (who tells you breastfeeding is a piece of work?!?! ) 

Thank you so much Calmbirth, we really had a great weekend and baby moon in Mittagong .

Here is hoping we will be back when number 2 comes along.
