The Birthwork website is dedicated to celebrating, sustaining, safeguarding and growing natural birth wisdom through creative projects, workshops and performance. Explore the many facets of the site including interviews, testimonials, photo galleries, trailers, book excerpts and info on workshops. The internationally acclaimed products available through this site are independently produced and Australian made.

The term ‘birthwork’ embraces all the different kinds of work and creative effort that mothers and their support people embark upon through childbearing. It acknowledges that birthworkers everywhere have the natural and necessary impulse to nurture mothers and babies, and share their experiences and wisdom. It also transcends the arguments about who should be caring for the mother, and helps us drop into the deeper process of understanding how to truly ‘be’ with birth.

Here is what Gail Tully – founder of Spinning Babies® has to say about our workshops:

Dear Birth World, ‘Birthwork – Creative Ways of Making Space for Babies’ Workshops from Jenny Blyth and Fiona Hallinan in Australia is so complementary to and harmonious with the Spinning Babies® approach. And I’m thrilled to be bringing Jenny and Fiona into our community as Spinning Babies® Approved Trainers – that’s how fitting their expertise is! I’ve enjoyed this workshop and use the lessons in my own birth work and life.

Fiona and I are now Spinning Babies® Approved Trainers. We are excited to be bringing Spinning Babies® Workshops to more care providers in Australia. You can find out all about Australian Spinning Babies® workshops on this link:
