“Childbirth; an unexplainable heart, mind, body, soul connection"

Your birth experience is heavily influenced by your core beliefs, your birthing culture, birthing environment, your unique story and every decision you make.
Preparing for this transforming life event is vital for the overall wellness, for you, your baby, and everyone fully present.

You deserve to feel confident in your choices, to know your options during your pregnancy and throughout your birth experience. You also deserve to feel safe, respected and loved – always!

Hello we're Claire & Bethany

The creators of Childbirth Education Australia. We have witnessed women step into the incredible power of their birthing bodies, make clear informed decisions that positively impact the outcome of their births, regardless of challenges they may have faced. These women are well prepared, have a solid support team and birth in a loving respectful environment.
