The Calmbirth® philosophy is based on the belief that birth is a natural process to be experienced by whānau  in a calm and joyful manner. The Calmbirth® classes seek to allay their fear and anxiety in the pre natal period. The classes educate whānau  in the understanding of the birth process. Calmbirth® subscribes to the belief that they have within themselves resources which they can use to facilitate the birth of their baby without fear and in a state of calm no matter how the labour and birth presents itself. The aim of the Calmbirth® program is to empower whānau to take back the focus of control for their own birthing experience. In Calmbirth® the role of the partner or birthing companion is important. 

The Calmbirth® organisation has a strict code of practice and it is vitally important that, for the sake of whānau attending the Calmbirth® classes and the reputation of Calmbirth® that the program remains reputable.
