The Birth Course
What Is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is a fancy word for saying deep self-connection for enhanced awareness. A down to earth, straightforward and easily learned course for mothers and their chosen birth partners.
The Birth Course
In class, you will learn how to create a birth plan of birth preferences, which will help you to communicate your birthing boundaries and preferences with your doctor or midwife.
You are also provided with a handout, which has been specially designed for your caregivers; a summary of how they can assist you with your birthing experience.
Each weekend course is made up of a mixture of theory with audio-visual explanations and interactive discussions with practical relaxation and breathing exercises, such as hands-on massage, deepening techniques and modern up to date birthing videos that are shown in class.
This course runs over two full days with me this interactive workshop will have you doing break out sessions, lots of birth talk, the use of acupressure and massage and your very own personalised birth rehearsal on day two.
The Birth Partners
The Birth Program is structured in a way that the birth partner is encouraged to attend. The partners love and support throughout the pregnancy and during birth, provide valuable reassurance and bonding in preparation for the birth of your baby and parenthood.
Having said this, sometimes there are reasons why the birthing mother needs to attend solo – and this is also completely fine. You never really are alone, because your birth partner can also be your baby, mother, sister or friend.

Why Doctors & Midwives love Hypnobirthing
Mothers who have good support, tools to use during childbirth, are well informed, confident and prepared are less likely to experience complications during their birth. If special circumstances do arise, hypnobirthing parents are prepared for whatever turn their birthing takes and will remain calm throughout. More and more obstetricians and midwives throughout Australia are recommending hypnobirthing class to the mother-to-be.
Majority of our caregivers love hypnobirthing because it makes the whole birth easier for them too! Less pressure on the system as the birth partner generally steps up and takes care of everything for the mother and allows midwives to down hat they are designed to do, ensure everything is safe, which then gives them time to get involved towards the end when things start to really ramp up.
An obstetrician recently remarked that he loved supporting Hypnobirthing Australia mums and birth partners,
because it was less work for him (said with a smile)
