Enjoy a Relaxed Pregnancy and Birth with the Calmbirth® Weekend Course


Giving birth is a transformational experience. Many women describe their experiences of childbirth as being spiritual, uplifting, and the uncovering of a deep, inner power.

Hi, I’m Lauren Falconer, I’m a registered calmbirth practitioner, senior doula, specialised prenatal yoga teacher, entrepreneur and mother. I wholeheartedly trust in your ability to birth your baby.

I believe with the right preparation, all women have the skills to birth in a peaceful and positive way. I am passionate about teaching mothers and their partners how to find and embrace their natural strength. I know that I can help you create a POSITIVE experience. Preparation is the key, read on…


What is calmbirth®?


Calmbirth® is a birth education course that will prepare both you and your partner for a wonderful birth experience . It focuses on your inner capacities, teaching you how to use these inner resources advantageously, and eliminate fear & stress. It is based on a philosophy developed by midwife Peter Jackson.

You learn the physiology of a labouring body, the importance of feeling relaxed, safe & supported, and how this helps you to birth your baby more efficiently, effectively and creates positive experiences for both mother and baby.

I introduce couples to practical skills such as relaxation, breathing, visualisation and massage. I share with women and their partners techniques on how to access their inner resources and the power that comes with learning to listen to and trust our own bodies.

By developing faith in ourselves we can let go of the tension that so often hinders women from enjoying the incredible and empowering journey of birth.


How calmbirth® Can Help You


Calmbirth® classes help parents understand how a woman’s body is designed to birth a baby naturally and how with preparation, communication and support a woman can approach labour with a confident and positive mindset.

Birth is an opportunity to transcend; it brings us into being on many levels.

Embracing labour and developing the confidence to have faith that our innate inner wisdom will help guide us through the birthing experience and the miracle of life is invaluable.

I am committed to helping others learn how to approach birth with such positivity. There is nothing more amazing than a calm and gentle birth and the joy that such a rich, bonding experience brings for the mother, her baby, partner and family.

“Hi Lauren, I feel FANTASTIC after the calm birth weekend with you :) I loved every single minute of it and am trying to convince everyone I know to do the course!
Thank you so much for such an amazing weekend – I feel so excited and prepared to give birth now, I also feel a lot more connected to my babies, I guess because I am no longer apprehensive :) thanks Lauren, you are awesome :)”


“The whole birth experience was nothing short of incredible – I’ve often heard you say that labour is hard work – my description would be that labour is HARD, HARD work! But it was absolutely beautiful – Matt and I feel we had the most perfect experience we could have wished for.There is no doubt in our minds that calmbirth gave us the skills and the mindset necessary to have such a great birth – we cannot thank you enough for the work you did with us and with me at yoga.

Best of all our little Luca is a calm baby!”
