Hunter Birth Education Centre is passionate about supporting families for birth and parenting. We place particular emphasis on the emotional journey :) The Hunter Birth Education Centre is dedicated to offering services that actively improve emotional outcomes for mothers, fathers and babies, during pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Our hope is that you will be surprised at all the great options you find here and that you will feel very glad you found us.
The truth is that women who follow standard pregnancy care are often only rewarded with standard birth experiences.
The truth is that your medical care provider does not have time to mention all the great pregnancy and birth options available to you.
Hunter Birth Education Centre is dedicated to ensuring that women and their families are aware of, and can access, all the positive pregnancy and birth options available to them – so that our women may experience high quality prenatal preparation and the enhanced birth and parenting experience that comes with that.
After studying the latest evidence based research we confidently present to you birth education approaches and prenatal health options that excel birth into the future and give advantages for your child and family for life.

Don't Push: New Programme Could Save Women From Birth Injury - Page 2 of 2 - The Natural Parent Magazine
With time, patience and love ... the womans' body expels her own baby automatically. It's called the "Natural expulsive reflex", it often only happens when she feels safe and when her hormones have been left unhindered. #protectbirth

Vaccine FAQs | Ask Dr Sears® | The Trusted Resource for Parents
Interesting find while I was researching breastfeeding ! No wonder Dr Sears has been labelled "anti-vaccine" and currently being driven from his profession as a child paediatrician .. His "Vaccines FAQ" page is all about Aluminium levels (which are added to vaccines as an adjuvant to deliberately increase the babies normal immune response).

Bill Gates reveals the 'safe' minimum age for kids to get a smartphone
Yes! I can't harp on about this enough! INCREASE REAL LIFE!

Calming a Fussy Baby: Is it Colic?
Lots of great ideas to try for upset/crying baby... the only one that no-one seems to talk about ENOUGH is for mum to lie flat on her back and lay baby over ribs to feed on the opposite breast. this allows baby to lay her stomach over your rib and chest side and helps with gas and allows baby to feed and relax over your beating heart, while MUM gets a REST!!!
