There is an emphasis on taking away the pain. Are we setting women up to fail?

In the Calmbirth® classes the pregnant couple explore one of the main reasons why pain is created in the first place. In the basic information imparted to the pregnant couples and the skills taught, the sensations of labour can be seen more in their true light as muscle sensation albeit intense at times. Couples are able to distinguish between hard work and pain.

They are reassured that no matter what path their labour and birth take, there are no failures, just different birth journeys just as there are different life journeys. Even if unforeseen circumstances arise, the skills taught in the classes assist the couple to remain calm and focused and bring out of that experience the joy of bringing their baby into the world.
