Dr. Buckley gives you the support you need as a Birth Professional

Thank you for your important work with childbearing families!

From my perspective, the wonderful work that you are doing to give babies and families the best possible start in life is the most valuable work on the planet today.

Pregnancy and birth are crucial determinants of life-long health, happiness, and wholeness.

The care that you give will influence all of those outcomes and you want to make sure that you do the best for mothers. babies, fathers, and families that you can.

You want to give women and families the best possible information and the best possible start.

Are You Looking for Authoritative, Up-To-Date Information?

It’s not so easy to keep up with all the information on childbirth, and especially to find authoritative sources and resources for yourself and the women and families that you educate and care for.


There is so much information available these days, and the area of childbirth seems to be especially full.


Do you have trouble reading everything that comes to you? Are you looking for other ways to stay educated? You don't want to lose the joy of supporting families through this major transition, but you don't want to spend all your time and energy keeping up with the information either!

How Can I Help You?

How can I provide all of this? Firstly,...

I am trained as a family physician (GP)

I have completed my training to practice GP-obstetrics, caring for healthy mothers and babies

I have also attended births at home, and I am also a mother of four!

My first baby was born in 1990 and my last in 2000, all such wonderful experiences at home that I subsequently changed career, writing two editions of my book “Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering“ in 2005 and 2009.

"Sarah Buckley creatively integrates mind/body wisdom with the latest scientific research to provide women with the essential tools they need to make conscious choices throughout their pregnancy and birth."

I have also written numerous articles for international publications including:

I also lecture to parents and professionals in Australia, US, UK and around the world on gentle, natural childbirth and how to maximise its benefits.

I have a special interest in the hormones of labour and birth and my detailed scientific report Hormonal Physiology of Childbearing was published by Childbirth Connection (US) in January 2015.

Gentle Birth, Gentle Mother. Doctor Sarah J. Buckley, MD

In my Gentle Natural Birth Professionals program, you can draw upon all of my knowledge and resources, and get accurate, up to date information.

In addition, I’ve experienced the challenges and joys of gentle, natural birth and mothering myself, and I know from my own experience just how challenging birth and mothering can be- and also how rewarding. I also know that a great start at birth can give a head-start in mothering too!

I also know that sometimes interventions are needed for the wellbeing of mothers and babies, and that we can help mothers, partners and families to be involved and empowered in any situation.

I am passionate about informed choices for mothers, babies, fathers and families.With education and awareness, we can also enhance hormonal physiology for all mothers and babies, promoting safety and pleasure, even when interventions are needed.

Weekly Videos - For Professionals

As GNB professional members, you will also get instant access to all of my Gentle Natural Birth resources for parents, including weekly videos emailed directly to you suitable for different stages of pregnancy. This will give you great information to share with women and families!

Informative Webinars

PLUS… you will also get access to my webinars on topics that matter to you, such as ultrasound, prenatal testing for Down syndrome, cord blood banking, screening for group B strep and many more topics. All of our webinars are recorded so you can watch when it suits you. Right now we are upgrading our webinars and will be adding new material.

Audios & Podcasts

As well as all of this, we will be launching audios and podcasts in 2016 with an exciting line-up of speakers on topics such as fatherhood, yoga, nutrition, newborn consciousness and much more. Even better, you can listen to all of these at your leisure!

"The resources at Gentle Natural Birth for Professionals will give you not only information that will be invaluable for decision-making but you will also gain reassurance about the power and pleasure of the natural processes of labor and birth, with all of the scientific evidence to back this up."
