What is Hypnobirthing?
The Hypnobirthing Australia™ Positive Birth program is a comprehensive and multifaceted form of holistic and evidence-based childbirth education that provides you with the knowledge, tools and support required to prepare for and assist you to achieve a positive birth experience.
The Hypnobirthing Australia™ 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!
Fear of the unknown in pregnancy and birth is replaced with empowerment from everything that we do know. By learning and practising evidence-based tools and techniques to apply to both labour and birth, we can go into birth with feelings of confidence and excitement.
The ‘Hypno’ part of hypnobirthing does not mean that you will be hypnotised during your birth. It simply refers to the deep relaxation techniques that you will learn throughout the course and master during your pregnancy. These deep conditioning techniques help you to access a profound state of self-hypnosis during your labour which is actually a very normal state of being and when harnessed during childbirth contributes to a more comfortable and satisfying experience for the mother.
What's Included in the program?
The Hypnobirthing Australia™ Positive Birth Program provides you and your birth partner with all the knowledge, tools and support to prepare for a positive birth.

12 hours of face to face tuition & interactive content.

Completing the Positive Birth Course with your birth partner will help them to develop a set of skills to feel confident and empowered to support you physically, emotionally and mentally during your labour. They will learn the importance of setting and maintaining the atmosphere of the birthing room and learn the language and mindset to communicate effectively with your care providers and a clear understanding as to how to advocate for you, your baby and the unique birthing preferences that you have prepared together.
You will gain knowledge about common procedures, tests and investigations that may be offered in your chosen birth setting whether this is at home in a birth centre or in a hospital setting. You will also be guided to further research to help you to develop your own unique preferences for labour and birth. Knowledge is power and this knowledge will help you to make informed decisions calmly and confidently, in the lead up to and during your labour no matter what course your pregnancy and birthing journey takes.
