About Pip Wynn Owen

Who I am, and why I want to help you succeed.

"I started Birth Savvy to help you achieve the birthing experience you deserve. I want you and your partner to have the knowledge to be the experts in your birth (it really isn’t brain surgery). This is so you will have the knowledge to discuss your options with your obstetricians and midwives and so you can negotiate hospital policies, if necessary.

I really believe that the highly medicalised birth, most woman experience in Perth, doesn’t have to be the norm. It will just take women and their partners to start to “Ask for what they want”.

Why Birth Savvy Classes are Different

Many hospitals now offer hospital run antenatal classes. Due to pressures on hospitals and obstetricians, some parents feel as if these classes focus more on giving information that supports the hospital’s practices, rather than empowering the family. Birth Savvy classes shift the emphasis back to you, by giving you the knowledge to take back control of your birth. By being clear on what you want and feeling empowered to ask for what you need, in any circumstance, you can create the birth experience you want.

There are many childbirth education services for Perth families that focus on completely natural home births and water births. While these have their place, I believe you can have a beautiful, empowering birth in any setting if you know what to ask for. Just because you have chosen to birth in a hospital should not mean you have to have to become a statistic.

Birth Savvy Childbirth classes or private sessions will give you the confidence you need to make the choices that are right for you and your baby, and to make sure you get the positive birthing experience you deserve.

Here's why you'll love my Classes

We're Different

It’s time to stop teaching “textbook” births, and do's and don’ts about breastfeeding and early parenting.

Each Birth is Unique

Birth S avvy classes will help you realise your experience is as individual as the baby you are birthing, and help you write your own unique story.

Positive Birth is Possible

Birth is really meant to be a positive, enjoyable experience. Nature wants you to do it again and again!!

Focus is on You

Birth Savvy classes aren't about teaching you hospital policies and procedures. They are about teaching YOU what YOU can do to have the best birth possible

"Even though I am a midwife and Childbirth Educator, it was the birth of my fourth child that finally convinced me of the need for an independent childbirth education service that catered to women who have chosen to birth in hospitals here in Perth."
