What is The Calming Companion?
If we as adults can remain calm and confident during the antenatal and postnatal period with realistic expectations of our babies, then research tells us that this enhances our child’s development, both now and in the future.
Our aim is to help individuals or couples to birth and parent in exactly the way that is right for them. No two people are the same, no two births are the same, no two babies are the same – this is a given! If we add to this our experiences, our cultural heritage, our own upbringing, our temperament, it is no wonder that sometimes people can lose their way.
We walk with your family on your journey through both the antenatal and postnatal period. Offering strength- based -solution -focused strategies and evidence based research to empower you and your support people to make the right decisions for you and your growing family.
Birth – We empower individuals and their partners to make their birthing process as fear-free as possible by teaching the Calmbirth® Education Program
Baby – We will guide you through understanding your baby’s cues and developing strategies/ techniques that work for your family.
Beyond – We will guide grandparents either current or new, of some strategies that have not changed since their babies were born and those strategies or safety issues that have changed as research and technology has advanced.
