For pregnant women and birth workers looking for empowering mind-body practices for a healthier kind of birth
After graduating from UC Berkeley, Robert Bruce Newman dedicated himself to advanced studies and training with respected Buddhist teachers. After more than 12 years of training he was authorized to teach a more complete kind of mindfulness meditation, based on complete breathing. His training was such that he was accepted as a teacher of mind-body medicine in hospitals in Oregon, California, and New Jersey. In 1998, he began to present a new childbirth practice, Calm Birth, in Oregon hospitals and has since presented the Calm Birth method four times at world congresses of the Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health (APPAH) and was asked to present the method at the University of Michigan Medical School and at Bastyr University. The program has teachers in 15 countries around the world.
