Be a Part of the Conscious Birth Movement by Adding Sound to Birth!

Are you a doula who LOVES their job but is tired of watching women feel defeated by our current birth system and/or the pain of birth?

Have you experienced the therapeutic benefits of sound and feel drawn to sharing this with the women you work with but don't feel confident about your "musical abilities"?

Are you always on the look out for effective, safe and 100% natural tools to help support pregnant and birthing women create a positive birth experience for themselves, their partner and their baby?

Well ... Hello!

Now YOU can learn how to give your women the SUPPORT of SOUND at BIRTH by

completing this training and becoming a 

SoundBirth Doula!

I can't wait to start sharing it with you starting on the 6th MAY 2021!

First of all ... What is SoundBirth?

SoundBirth began when my Mum intuitively started playing one of my newly purchased crystal singing bowls that was sitting in the corner of my bedroom.

It was good timing because my contractions were starting to feel more intense and I was starting to want to moan and groan because of it's intensity ... but I felt embarrassed about making any strange sounds in front of everyone (midwife, husband, friend, Mum...).  I had felt self-conscious and inhibited during my previous two home births too!

BUT as soon as I heard the sound of the bowl I started to make more sound with my voice and in return felt more relief!  The entire room seemed to disappear and all that was present were the sounds I was co-creating with the bowl.  

Soon the contraction dissipated and so did the sound of the bowl.  

OMG.  I couldn't believe the difference in my anxiety and pain levels!   

From then on my doula was instructed by me to play that bowl throughout every contraction for the next 5 hours ... and then again during my fourth labour my birth team took turns playing that bowl ... this time for about 30 hours!

The sound of that amazing bowl HELD my hand and gave me the strength I needed to birth my babies!

After that first SoundBirth experience back in 2009, I KNEW I had to share this with the birth world!

So I created SOUNDBIRTH! 

And now YOU can share it too!

Since then the SoundBirth tools have been used by doulas, midwives and partners at home births and hospitals throughout Perth, WA and other parts of the world, to soothe and support women in labour. Hear about what women are saying below!

What Women are Saying About SoundBirth

  • SoundBirth

    “I never thought, "I can't do this" or "I need drugs" or "take me to the hospital" because the bowl kept me present and grounded. I felt safe and calm during the contractions. ”

  • SoundBirth

    “The birth was exceedingly beautiful and the bowl such a part of this, I would highly recommend it to every birthing woman. ”

    Mother of 4

  • SoundBirth

    “It was so helpful, having the bowls there. I truly believe they helped me in opening up and relaxing like I’ve never relaxed before.”

    Midwife, Mother of 4

  • SoundBirth

    “I was able to “get in the zone” to focus and visualise full dilation, in spite of the pressure and hospital sounds that were going on around me. We did successfully dilate and I had the vaginal birth I was hoping for.”

  • SoundBirth

    “The beautiful low tone of the mesmerising singing bowl helped keep Amy in what I like to call the 'labour zone'. The atmosphere in the room was one of peace, harmony and there was the easy flow of laughter and joy. ”

    Registered Midwife

  • SoundBirth

    “ If I hadn’t discovered SoundBirth and toning and the crystal singing bowls I believe that my labour would have gone very differently. ”

  • SoundBirth

    “If a contraction had a sound it would be the sound of the Crystal singing bowl.”

More Info ....

Depending on the package you choose ... here's what you get!

The SoundBirth Bowl: Value $530

This 14 inch crystal singing bowl comes with a soft carry case to keep it safe and dust-free while not using it and making it easier to carry to your pregnant mammas. Price includes an o-ring for it to sit on and a striker to play it with!  Shipping to your door step is included.

SoundBirth Bowl to Hire Out: Value $530

For those of you who would like to hire out a bowl (another stream of income!!!) to your pregnant mammas so they can practice toning with the sound of the bowl when you're not there!  This will fill your mammas with more confidence about using their voice, plus it will give their partner the opportunity to be involved by playing the bowl for her (yes, even during the birth!), and it may assist with managing stress and anxiety leading up to the birth.  You may also want to use BOTH of your SoundBirth bowls at births to create relaxing binaural beats ... which I will explain more about in the training! 

1.5 hour Zoom Masterclass (6th May 10:30am - 12pm Perth Australia time): Value $150

This online masterclass has been added to the training so that I can connect with you all before we get started!  I love people and like to know who I'm working with!  I will be sharing the SoundBirth story, summarising the training and how to go about it, demonstrating how to play the bowl and tone and answering any of your questions!  

Facebook Group Support: Value $200

As the online course unfolds over the 4 weeks, I will be there in the Facebook group answering your questions and doing a Facebook Live every Monday from 1pm Perth Aust time.  If you miss it that's fine!  You can watch it later! 

SoundBirth Doula Online Course: Value $350

The lessons will be delivered to you over the 4 weeks via the SoundBirth Membership Site and Facebook group.  

FREE Listing on SoundBirth Directory for 1 year: Value $100

Koshi Chime of your choice!: Value $75

Soothe your women (and babies) before, during and after the birth with these absolutely divine sounding chimes made in France.  You have a choice of 4 different tuning/elements - earth, air, fire and water which you can listen to here!

3 x 1 hour Private Sessions with me! Value $350

Want to GROW your doula biz even further by letting people know LOUD and CLEAR that you are a "SoundBirth Doula"?  During these 3 sessions I will go further into how you can get the SoundBirth message out there via social media / email lists etc and how to talk about SoundBirth so those pregnant women will be lining up to pick YOU as their doula!  We can also use these sessions to learn how to facilitate a mini sound journey for your women ... another beautiful addition to your SoundBirth doula package!

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the questions people most frequently ask me:

Do I have to buy a bowl?

YES you do! It is a requirement for anyone who would like to be listed on my website as a trained Soundbirth Doula to have purchased a SoundBirth Bowl from me.  Which is why it's included in all packages!  Your bowl will arrive at your home within 2- 3 weeks after you have purchased a package! 

What is so great about the "SoundBirth Bowl"?

Over the years of working with sound I have found that the pitch I have chosen for the SoundBirth Bowl is the easiest pitch to vocalise with - it's not too high, not too low!  Also, the size of the bowl isn't too small or too heavy and big! It is JUST RIGHT. So I just don't give people a choice anymore! Just trust me and go for it! You'll learn more about why in the training! And you'll fall in love with it when you see and hear it! 

How long will it take to complete the training?

After you have attended the Zoom  Masterclass with me on the 6th May 2021, you will receive a new module each week for 4 weeks.  Then you have another 4 months after that to complete assessments and start integrating the SoundBirth tools into your work.  You'll only need to put aside a few hours per week (if that) to complete this training ... I know you have a life too! 

What can I do with the SoundBirth tools after the training?

After you have completed the training, I will add you to the SoundBirth Doula Directory and you can start adding "SoundBirth" to your Doula Packages.  You are allowed to call yourself a trained "SoundBirth Doula" and can offer this service to your birthing women on a 1:1 basis.  This training is an approved IICT modality. 

Do I have to be a qualified doula to start offering SoundBirth?

In Australia you don't need to be "qualified " to be a doula BUT if you intend to call yourself a "SoundBirth Doula" you MUST have completed some kind of accredited Doula Training. I do NOT teach any other doula tricks besides the sound and music aspect of support. So I wouldn't want you being at a birth and not knowing enough about birth and how to support women in other ways too. This training is for those who already work with pregnant/birthing women who want to integrate these simple tools into their current work. Contact me to talk about your situation if you are unsure. 

Will hospitals let me bring a bowl to birth?

From what I know, it is up to the birthing woman as to what they want to bring into the birthing room. If that is a crystal singing bowl then so be it! So far I haven't heard of a doula or midwife or couple NOT being allowed to bring their bowl into the room.  It's all been very positive feedback! It's a good idea to educate those who know nothing about SoundBirth by popping a sign on the door with all the benefits listed! 

When will I have access to the online course?

Immediately after you have either paid the full price or started the payment plan, you will receive a link to the Zoom Masterclass held on the 6h May 10:30am - 12pm Perth Australia time.  I will add you to the "SoundBirth Doula Training" Facebook Group which is where we will connect after the Masterclass.  An email will be sent to you inbox after the Masterclass with the first module and then each week after that for 4 weeks a you will receive a new module. You will have lifetime access to this training.

IICT seal of approval

So ... Are You Ready?

Your women are waiting for you!  Their babies are too!  

All women deserve to feel powerful and strong and connected and nurtured and empowered and relaxed and energised and fully ALIVE during this massive transformation called BIRTH.  Adding SOUND from a crystal singing bowl and their own amazing voice could be exactly what they need to give them these powerful and positive experiences.  

And the babies coming into the world deserve to enter GENTLY ...

Be one of the FIRST in the world to be offering women such a tool during childbirth! 

I look forward to working with you!
