Birth International

Birth International is a consultancy that incorporates ACE Graphics. The business was originally established by Andrea Robertson, a childbirth educator with an international reputation for her skills in the field of childbirth education. In 1985 Andrea established Associates in Childbirth Education (ACE), a private educational consultancy to continue the training of educators and to provide in-service and update workshops for midwives and other health professionals interested in birth. ACE Graphics, an associated business, provides teaching aids, equipment and books which support the “active birth” philosophy and midwifery care.  In 1997, the company Birth International was formed, to incorporate both ACE Graphics and Associates in Childbirth Education under the same umbrella structure. Today Birth International overarches both aspects of the business: providing training and education of those involved in maternity care and developing and promoting a range of appropriate and innovative teaching aids, equipment, models, charts and videos to support the work of midwifery (through ACE Graphics). The primary focus of all activities has been to protect and promote midwifery in as many ways as possible. Birth International is dedicated to exploring all avenues in a quest to restore midwifery to its rightful place as guardian of the normal and the facilitators of the best births possible. Although based in Australia, our services and activities have an international perspective and are open to anyone in any country. In 2015 Pregnancy Birth and Beyond Pty Ltd purchased the both Birth International and ACE Graphics – aiming to continue on with Andrea Robertson’s important work within the field of childbirth education and midwifery.
