Positive Birth Program
Hypnobirthing AustraliaTM is an empowering Positive Birth program that teaches pregnant women and their birth companion’s simple deep relaxation, self-hypnosis, visualisation, active birth and breathing techniques for use during labour and the postnatal period.
I am a passionate doula and holistic birthing expert, my classes are informative and engaging. I use Australian practice materials, modern training and birth videos, and provide up to date, relevant and evidence based information.
Applying the Hypnobirthing AustraliaTM techniques and principles, will help you to achieve a comfortable, joyous and satisfying birth, which every mother deserves !
What exactly is Hypnobirthing ?
The Hypnobirthing AustraliaTM program combines the beauty of ancient wisdom with modern neuroscience to assist new parents to overcome any unnecessary doubts, fears or conditioned beliefs or fears surrounding birth. It prepares mothers and their birth companions with proven tools, knowledge and support and assists them in creating a positive mindset so that they can approach their birth feeling calm,confident, prepared and most importantly excited!
With modern resources and moving and powerful (not scary) birthing videos, no matter what turn your birthing journey may take, from a spontaneous natural birth, a caesarean birth to a home birth, Hypnobirthing can help you and your partner to prepare so thoroughly and magically for what is undoubtedly one of the most amazing days of your life !
Hypnobirthing uses Hypnotherapy as a key component of the program to establish and reaffirm neural pathways that promote birthing confidence, it also works effectively to assist mother's and their birth companion to let go of any fears they may be holding in relation to birth.
Hypnotherapy processes help condition the mother to release beta-endorphins ( which are nature's own relaxants or pain relievers), this means that as she relaxes more fully in her own labour process she is working with her body and the powerful array of natural birthing hormones that are released when she feels safe, unobserved and is birthing without fear.
Just as when you are engrossed in a movie or reading an amazing book, you are still very conscious and aware of what is occurring around you when using hypnobirthing, you can communicate well with your birth companion and your caregivers, you are also in an ultimate state of relaxation and able to drop into your surges and be deeply attuned to your body and your baby, working together in complete harmony.
You will be focused and present as you breathe your baby into the world, affirmed in your power as the birthing goddess you are!!!

Group Hypnobirthing AustraliaTM Classes;
The Hypnobirthing Australia TM syllabus is an empowering series of classes run in a safe and supportive environment.
Hypnobirthing Australia TM syllabus consists of four units of approximately three hours duration.
Classes operate in the evenings over four consecutive nights or they are run as a weekend course generally over two Sundays (sometimes over the course of one weekend).
Group Classes are run from two separate venues, located on both the Northern Beaches of Sydney and the Central Coast of NSW.

I reinforce the belief in my classes that childbirth is not something to be feared, but rather an experience that all women should be truly excited about and know to be a normal, natural and divine rite of female passage.
