As mums, we all know what it is like to try and stay calm with our children. This innovative program teaches you how to do exactly that – no matter the age of your child. Explore ways to deepen your connection with your child as they grow AND as you grow as a mum. Maintain your own identity, feed your soul and enjoy motherhood every step of the way as a CALM MUM.
From pre-conception to adulthood, our children need us to guide them, accept them, love them and help them learn. If we cannot step aside with our own issues, we perpetuate cycles of behaviour that then become learned, and our children inherit our life dramas. Break the cycles and live a new life story- it is never too late.

Calm Mum Testimonials
No parent is perfect. The best we can do is recognize where we fall into traps that diminish us as moms and dads and try to avoid the trap the next time. You would think, after years of very expensive therapy, I would have all those traps identified and big detours set up all around them….but I don’t always. Sometimes I still need a little help to figure out where I need to go to avoid that big hole, and Calm Mum was one of the best ways to give me tools to navigate around pitfalls. Will you walk away from Calm Mum a better parent? No, not unless you are willing to ask yourself the hard questions and answer honestly. You will walk away from Calm Mum better prepared to face all the obstacles that will come your way, enlightened about how those obstacles got there in the first place and ready to try something brand new in your quest to become the best parent you can be. Every parent does the best they can do with the tools they have, we all know that. How many times, however, have you looked at a tool and wondered how the heck to use it? Calm mum gives you a full parenting toolbox ,and shows you how to use them in the best way possible. Thank you, Carol. You gave me power tools, and a place to plug them in!
After participating in the Calm Mum workshop, I am – in all honesty a calmer mum, wife and daughter. The workshop invited me take a deeper look inside myself, examine my own insecurities and learn to heal myself from the inside out. The Calm Mum workshop taught me how I can positively impact my child’s emotional health – and there is nothing better than that.Thank you Carol and Babies Naturally, you have truly made a difference not only in my life, but the lives of everyone around me.

When I initially enrolled in Calm Mum, I came looking for strategies … “Do x,y,z when your child does __” That was not at all what I took away from Carol’s class. In fact, what mattered most, what was life changing for me, was not what I took away from Calm Mum, but what I left behind. Calm Mum asked of me only one thing, to find MY truth. I took away the power to own my soul, walk away from issues that did not belong to me, embrace moments for exactly what they are, sit in my emotions, ask myself what my children are seeking and how their lens is filtered. I left behind the need for answers, the need to understand, the need to control, to hold on, to justify, and to replay over and over the voices that had governed me as an individual and as a parent. Most of all, I learnt that children learn from what you live. So what does being a Calm Mum mean to me? Live love, breathe trust, and own your life. xo Cassandra

Learn the basic techniques needed to give an effective and nurturing massage to your baby using touch as your method of communication.
Giving this gift to our children is incredibly beneficial to their development. They are growing and changing at a rate that is unlike any other phase of life. With these changes come various aches and pains, and yes, even stress. Your baby is a conscious and aware little human being. They have the same feelings we do, they are just unable to express them in the same ways. Acknowledging these feelings, and addressing their stresses instills security and trust. These feelings will stay with them throughout their childhood, adolescence and even adulthood.
This class is best for babies between 2 months and crawling. (1 hr – 90 minutes in length)
Class Fee – $50 / class
Private Session Fee $85
In Home Private Session $115
