Do Calmbirth® classes take the place of hospital childbirth education classes?

The Calmbirth® programme is an entirely different programme to those run in hospitals and birth centres. Registered Calmbirth® practitioners have been through a training process and are qualified to teach the Calmbirth® model of childbirth preparation. Couples attending Calmbirth® classes are encouraged to become informed of the content of the classes conducted in the place they are to give birth then make up their own minds whether to attend the hospital classes in consultation with their care givers.
