These are the results of the online surveys from couples who attended the Calmbirth Pre Natal Education Programme before the birth of their babies between June 2008 and August 2012.
The Calmbirth Pre Natal Education Programme has been shown to
- Reduce the use of interventions that women experience in labour, particulaly augmentation of labour and analgesia (see survey results below).
- Enhance satisfaction with care during pregnancy and childbirth including social and emotional aspects of care. Women increased their confidence about birth and decreased their anxiety.
