The Hypnobirthing Australia™ program is uniquely designed for Australian mothers and their birth companions. It is the natural approach to childbirth! Hypnobirthing Australia™ classes prepare you with the knowledge, confidence and tools you need to birth calmly. Birth can, and should be, a positive experience – one that you will always want to remember.
A modern, uniquely Australian hypnobirthing program designed for contemporary Australian familes.....
When a mother and her birth companion are able to approach birth with a positive mindset, knowledge, good support and tools – then birth can be a beautiful and empowering experience.
The ‘hypno’ part of ‘hypnobirthing’ refers to the hypnotherapy that we use to let go of fears and condition ourselves to release endorphins during our birth. With the help of hypnotherapy, the birth of your baby can be a more calm and relaxed experience, one where you are in the drivers’ seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. This is likely to reduce the need for interventions during you birthing.
The concept of Hypnobirthing is not new, but rather a combination of different techniques and philosophies that have existed for many, many years.
You will learn breathing, relaxation, visualisation and self-hypnosis techniques, along with knowledge and tools to assist you to make well informed decisions along the way.
Of course, natural birth is not a new concept! Our ancient mothers and sisters birthed naturally without the use of anesthesia or many of the interventions that are common today. However, we also recognise that medical science can sometimes save lives.
If you do require interventions, or a caesarean birth – the use of self-hypnosis and deep relaxation techniques leading up to, during and after the birth can be of great advantage to both yourself and baby.
You deserve special care as you make this exciting and unique journey with joyous anticipation and confidence.
Classes are run regularly in the Western Suburbs at the Growing Bones Clinic in Yarraville and can be attended at any stage of your pregnancy, however 20-30 weeks is the ideal time to start. Alternatively private sessions can also be arranged. Parents find the hypnobirthing techniques easy to learn and down to earth.
Regardless of how many weeks you have to go contact me to find out how Hypnobirthing Australia™ can help you to direct the course of your own positive birth journey.

Q. What is the cost of the program and what is included?
A. The cost is $550.00 this includes your hard copy manual with all resources along with folio downloads (eBook, mp3’s of hypnosis tracks & video) and 12 hours of class tuition for both you and your birth partner. A 50% deposit is required to secure your place in the class and the balance is due 7 days prior to the class commencing.
Q. Does my Partner have to attend the class.
A. It’s not compulsory however it is certainly preferable. There is a great deal of information for Birth Partners in the course. It demonstrates the importance of their role on the day as they advocate for you and essentially take on the role of coach, they regulate the environment to ensure it remains calm, quiet and peaceful. The role they play is a very important one as we teach to direct all communication through them so the birthing mother has nothing else to think about or concern herself with other than calmly birthing your baby. If your Partner is unable to attend the class a separate private session can be arranged at a time that is more convenient at an additional cost.
