Childbirth education classes designed for you
Non-judgemental, professional Childbirth and Early Parenting Education by an advanced educator with over two decades of midwifery and training experience
Here’s why you’ll love a Birth Savvy Class
The Focus is on You
Birth Savvy classes aren’t about teaching you hospital policies and procedures. The purpose of Birth Savvy classes are so you can know what you have to do to have the best birth possible for yourself and your baby.
Positive Birth is Possible
Birth is meant to be a positive, enjoyable experience. I will teach you how to harness what nature intended us to do again and again so that no matter what the outcome, you’ll feel accomplish and connected to your body, your baby, your partner and your story after your birth.
Each Birth is Unique
Birth Savvy classes will help you realise your birth and parenting experience is as individual as the baby you are birthing, and help you write your own unique family story – a calm, positive one.
Classes are Different
After nearly two decades as a midwife then a childbirth educator, I know it’s time to stop teaching parents to “textbook” – dos and don’ts of birth, breastfeeding, and early parenting aren’t helpful for parents.
Better Birth Classes
Childbirth, Early Parenting, and Breastfeeding classes that are individually designed for your unique situation. Learn how to get the experience you want. Classes include Birth Basics, Active Birth, Birth Partner’s Role, Becoming a Family, and Breastfeeding Basics.
Hypnobirthing Australia™ Classes
Group or Private Hypnobirthing Australia™ classes help you have a calm, gentle, positive birth whatever turn your birth takes. No matter where you are birthing or who you are birthing with, Hypnobirthing ensures your focus is on working with your body.

Also learn how to get the message across, manage group dynamics, and help your clients have the best birth possible during childbirth education sessions.
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 obstetrician 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 policies and 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 wish for 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.
Birth Savvy in the Media
Birth Savvy’s Pip Wynn Owen is passionate about promoting positive birth experiences through informed choice and good quality antenatal classes. As such, she regularly appears in the local and national media and in online and national publications.
"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."
