The Calm Birth Method
"Calm Birth is a sublime gift to all of us. It contains the blueprint for reconnecting with birth wisdom on all levels. Reading through this book and doing the practices will transform the birth process and imprint a peaceful beginning in both mother and child. The positive impact of this on society can't be overestimated."
-----Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
"Calm Birth is the childbirth method that society and I have waited for. It's been a long time coming, a very long time. I am a midwife and an educator with a steady devotion to childbirth. I urge everyone to buy Robert Newman's inspired book...The book does what is so deeply needed. It heals the Earth by healing birth."

"Robert Newman's Calm Birth program provides couples and professionals alike a beautiful map, a method and a philosophy, to prepare for birth in a way that honors and helps them connect with their deepest innate nature and abilities. Meditation methods in Calm Birth opens up a vista of hope, empowerment, inner wisdom, and confidence to trust the ability to birth naturally. Families' stories gracefully illuminate how Calm Birth ignites transformational experience in life, pregnancy, birth, and beyond. I hope you read this book."

"Calm Birth, A new Method for Conscious Childbirth by Robert Bruce Newman, successfully bridges ancient feminine healing wisdom and meditation to contemporary birth practices. With a broad overview of the history of birth, and deep personal knowledge of meditation, the author presents practical methods which have the power to redefine birth from a "medical problem" to a natural human process that blesses life itself. With the possibility of safe and calm birth, bonding and trust occur easily and naturally and spread to family, community, and beyond. This book is a must for anyone interested in childbirth."
Barbara Findeisen, M.F.T., former President, The Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health (APPPAH).
This book is a complement to the Calm Birth book. It offers a vision of the emerging new paradigm of medicine.
"No approach to medicine and healing can be adequate if it does not include attention to the role of mind, consciousness, and spirit. Extensive research confirms this, and there is no going back to the strictly materialistic views of the past. Empowered Care is a valuable look at the how these elements are being integrated into modern medicine. EMPOWERED CARE is the medicine of the future. Let Newman and Miller be your guide."
Larry Dossey, MD Author: HEALING WORDS and THE POWER OF PREMONITIONS
"For the past few decades there has been increasing talk about Body, Mind and Spirit, although rarely is there any real Action of Spiritual engagement.. Mind is, of course, our conscious connection to Spirit, but the Power of Spirit needs to be invoked. True healing ultimately requires active interaction with Spiritual force. The time has come for EMPOWERED CARE!"
- C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD Founding President, American Holistic Medical Association. Author: The Creation of Health; Miracles do Happen
Praise for the first edition of Empowered Care:
"...This work offers extraordinary and essential insight into wholeness and healing. To read the book is to experience the essential light and healing that are available to all of us right now, at this very mement. So helpful. Such a relief."
----Christiane Northrup, MD Author, Mother-Daughter Wisdom and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom
" Newman and Miller have written a virtual bible of healing, a primer for a new medicine. Not only have they explored it's history and science, but they have created actual protocols and prayers - word by word incantations. Thus the book is not only an account of possibility. It is the manual, the starting point for practice. What we have here is a rare thing: phonemes that are things, statements that breathe medicines."
