Having been inspired by the strong birthing women she has worked with as a Student Midwife; Kaity has committed herself to be a childbirth educator with Hypnobirthing AustraliaTM.
Kaity is determined to bring meaningful change to the birth space, allowing women to make informed decisions and feel empowered to have a positive birth experience.
Antenatal education reduces maternal stress, empowers for self-advocation in the birth space, can lower the rate of intervention and leads to a positive birth experience. Kaity believes that the Positive Birth Program can decrease women’s fear of childbirth, by allowing them to understand both the physiological aspects of birth, and their own inherent power as a woman. This course also encourages birth partners to understand their importance in the birth space.
Earthside Births offers the Positive Birth Program in groups, privately, and online. Kaity aims to tailor the delivery of information to the needs of the woman and her chosen birth partner.
It is Kaity’s profound belief that by sharing and relearning one’s ancestral maternal coding, women are able to reclaim the birth space as a rite of passage, and to take back ownership of their bodies and birth stories.
