NurtureBirth® is a concept developed from a strong belief in women’s inner strength and their ability to birth their babies calmly and naturally. The course aims to nurture confidence and remove fear so that women and their partners are empowered to build their own positive birth experience. The course provides both the woman and her partner with clear direction for her labour, birth and parenting journey ahead.
Both a comprehensive and holistic birthing education programme NurtureBirth® is a method that will help the labour, birth and parenting process be what it is meant to be for all couples – beautiful and exciting yet manageable, practical and simple. The combination of skills learned will not only increase the chances of having a birth with less medical intervention, but also help you nurture your experience in any given birth scenario.
NurtureBirth® comprises of several body mind skills including key knowledge of the instinctual, intuitive and scientific processes of labour, birth and early parenting, active birth techniques, acupressure/massage, breathe work, neurolinguistics, visualisation and yoga. NurtureBirth® is designed to be easily utilised as a couple or with a birth partner/doula and other birth attending professionals.
NurtureBirth® has been uniquely co-created and is taught by Kerrie Adams and her partner Scott Helbron. The course is a fine balance of their skills of current expert midwifery experience and knowledge, complementary therapies and reflection on their own personal and very recent birth experience.
Couples at NurtureBirth® are given both the woman and the partners perspective on birth and parenting. They are also encouraged to have a sense of enquiry and make their own informed choices within the current system of healthcare.
Learning the NurtureBirth® Skill combination is a truly connecting and deep nurturing learning experience, aiming to bring you – the couple – closer together, increasing intimacy and realistically preparing you both for the most life changing yet joyous experience of your lives.
