Better Birthing Methods

EMPOWERMENT THROUGH EDUCATION

The She Births® method allows a deep transformation to take place within every couple. The process fosters a sense of trust in birth and security in each other. Not only are these factors critical to creating a more natural and beautiful birth experience, but also in creating the foundation for stronger, more resilient families going forward.

SCIENTIFICALLY VERIFIED PROGRAM

In 2015, the She Births® antenatal education program was scrutinised in large randomised controlled trials within two mixed demographic hospitals in Sydney, Australia. The study was conducted by Western Sydney University and the National Institute of Complementary Medicine.

The She Births® program was chosen for this study because it incorporates more complementary medicine modalities than other childbirth courses and our own private normal birth rates are so high (83%).

This groundbreaking research highlights dramatic improvements for the Study group, who received the She Births® program, in comparison to the Control group who received the standard hospital birth preparation course.

Results were published in British Medical Journal and Midwifery Journal in 2016.

  • 65% reduction in epidural rates
  • 44% reduction in caesarean sections
  • 50% reduction in medical augmentation using artificial means
  • 53% reduction in resuscitation of babies
  • 12% reduction in perenial trauma

HCF SHE BIRTHS® PRIVATE HOSPITAL TRIAL

Australia’s largest not-for-profit health fund is currently conducting a trial within the private hospital system. Over 120 couples have been recruited by HCF to take part in the She Births® course free-of-charge.

It’s anticipated that this trial will result in significant reductions in birth cost, complications and the number of days babies are in the NICU. Preliminary results are promising and will be released early 2019.

The Birthing Institute is committed to ongoing research and development on a global scale. We are in conversation with researchers in the USA about implementation and trials on the east coast.
