About Alicia Ferguson

Alicia - Calmbirth

Hello! I’m Alicia Ferguson

I have been a registered midwife for over 12 years now, working mainly in South Auckland, NZ, but have also recently worked in India and Australia. Over the years I have worked as a hospital midwife, a LMC midwife in the community, and a midwifery educator. I am currently doing my Masters in Public Health so I can get more involved with developing midwifery programs around the world. 

After working in the community as a LMC midwife, and having the privilege of spending nine whole months with each pregnant woman or person and their family, I really got to see and understand the different journeys they were on during this time – the excitement, the fears, the vulnerability, the overwhelm that can sometimes be a part of this transition into parenting.

I have come to realise the huge importance of education and knowledge based on the latest research, but also knowing how to put this knowledge into practice, and how be an advocate for yourself. I am really passionate about helping people have all the tools they need for this journey, and doing it in a way that empowers, strengthens and excites them! Becoming a Calmbirth Educator in 2020 was an amazing way to do this.

Calmbirth isn’t just another childbirth education program that focuses on the physical aspects of pregnancy and birth – it also helps to prepare your mind and headspace which is one of the best things you can do leading up to birth. 

Currently offering a one-off weekend class on the 17th and 18th of February 2024 in South Auckland.

$445 includes full course for you and partner or support person, morning and afternoon tea, Calmbirth book and audio relaxations.

Calmbirth is an inclusive organisation that embraces cultural diversity and accepts all people regardless of gender and sexuality.
