Calm Birth Denver, CO


Childbirth Preparation and Meditation Classes

Calm Birth gives you new tools in the form of mediation and breath work so that you have more options for being successful in your desires around birth.

From: Introduction to Calm Birth by David Chamberlain, Ph.D.". . . Calm Birth gives women and birth professionals practical means to improve the quality of childbirth. Like the venerable educational programs inspired by Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, Dr. Fernand Lamaze, and Dr. Robert Bradley, Calm Birth seeks to empower women for natural childbirth and offers ideas and practical methods for them to succeed. Like the previous programs, Calm Birth recognizes the central challenge posed by fear and pain, though its solution is different, and it recognizes the importance of breathing, though it teaches a form of blended breathing into both the energy body and the physical body, reflecting a new vision of childbirth."
