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.

Hello Everyone,

As some of you may already know, we have been teaching our Birthwork Workshop – Creating Amazing Space for Babies for over 10 years now, in Australia, Europe and USA.

In Australia 2020 we will be teaching in Melbourne in March, and on the Sunshine Coast in May. We have now blended our Part 1 and Part 2 Creating Amazing Space for Babies in to 4 days.

If you have completed Part 1 and have been waiting for Part 2, you are welcome to join any 4 day workshop on day 3 & 4. Everyone is welcome in these Birthwork workshops – midwives, doulas, osteopaths, chiropractors, bodyworkers, yoga teachers, naturopaths, parents-to-be, birth educators…

If you don’t know about our workshops, you can find out all the details and breakdown of the days 1-4 in the link

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

Dear Birth World,

Birthwork – Creating Amazing 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.

Gail Tully – founder of Spinning Babies®
Fiona and I are now Spinning Babies® Approved Trainers.

We are excited to be bringing Spinning Babies® Workshops to more care providers in Australia, and travelling to areas that might not usually have easy access to workshops.
