The Dick-Read School for Natural Childbirth is named to honour Dr Grantly Dick-Read MD (1890 to 1959) Natural Childbirth pioneer and his wife Jessica (1912 to 1998) the first Natural Childbirth teacher and teacher.

The School has been evolving since 1913. It exists to help all women everywhere to take back the total and totally competent control of all childbirth - especially their own and to help all men to be able to competently ensure that all women are totally free to do so.

Dr Leigh Dick-Read PhD (Natural Childbirth) is a stepson of Grantly Dick-Read and a son of Jessica Dick-Read. He is a psychotherapist, natural therapist, social ecologist and Natural Childbirth educator, support person and researcher.

Elizabeth Drake B Comm is a Doula with a special interest in helping women and couples to create their own birth plans.

Both Elizabeth and Leigh are widely trained in many modalities and they can consult by appointment.

Hosts everywhere are invited to help us to present low-cost workshops, training programs and fundraising events. Anyone, anywhere who would like to consider hosting for us is invited to contact us at any time.
