As a male midwife working in a country hospital for over 20 years, Peter Jackson witnessed mothers whose experience of childbirth was one of fear, anxiety and trauma. Peter knew that nature did not get it wrong, that a labouring mother’s experience could be filled with empowerment and joy. He believed the answer lay in the preparation of the couple during pregnancy. Thus he developed the Calmbirth® Childbirth Preparation program.
Along with his daughter Karen, a fellow midwife and registered nurse, Peter delivers Calmbirth to pregnant Australian couples to assist them to truly understand birth, help them to release fears and anxiety about birth, and teach them the skills they require to create positive birth experiences.
