The method

The best tools for confidence and support


Confident Birth offers the most effective tools for a confident and loving birth with the best understanding of how emotions and birth physiology are linked. The method is unique in its kind and focuses on health during birth and how birth physiology is linked to confidence and the hormone oxytocin. 

The complete method 
The book and method "Confident Birth" is a part of the company "Birth By Heart" that works for birth health globally. The method relates to how it is possible to give birth with complete confidence and use physiology to activate the body's amazing innate ability to give birth. The method is based on in-depth knowledge of respiratory physiology, stress physiology, the “peace and calm system” and the available scientific evidence on the importance of support. In addition to the courses preparing parents for childbirth, the Confident Birth method is taught to health care personnel. 

Confident Birth and its effective tools
The method has developed four simple and effective tools: breathing, relaxation, the voice and the power of the mind. These can be used both during contractions and the various other phases of childbirth. We also offer unique training and practical fundamental principles to provide support during the birth for partners and health care personnel. 

We look forward to meeting you on one of our courses or online. Welcome!

“Every woman deserves a confident and loving birth” 

“When I was going to give birth to my first child, I found I needed help and support to give birth with confidence.  This was so crucial that it changed my life. After my own birth, I decided that all women, partners and children deserve a confident and loving childbirth. I trained as a doula and physiotherapist simply so I could create the ‘Confident Birth method". I have worked for more than 20 years with childbirth and have attended hundreds of births so that I could understand more and develop the four effective tools and the physiological basis of the method. Today, I work with method instructors to spread the message that we are meant to give birth with confidence”.
