When I started looking for a studio to run my workshops there were a couple of important items that I looked for. Firstly I wanted the studio to have a great feel, be warm in winter and cool in summer. The Studio needed to be central to the city of Melbourne and have easy access to the freeway. After a very detailed search I found the perfect room in South Melbourne in a very unique building designed to accommodate a variety of “like- minded” people running small interesting companies. The building was designed based on a another building with a similar concept in Brooklyn, NYC. My room is warm and inviting for Calmbirth couples with free parking out the front of the building. We break for lunch and most couples wander around to the South Melbourne market or take the opportunity to have a walk along the nearby beach at Port Melbourne. The workshops are run over two consecutive Sundays in the room filled with cosy comfortable cushions that are utilized during the relaxation. The intimate space allows for great interaction during the workshops and couples are able to spend two days having all their questions answered to prepare for the big day, the birth of their baby.
