Being prepared for birth with a 5 session HypnoBirthing program will ensure you're well on you're way to a postitive birthing day. As a Director of the peak Maternity Consumer Network, I know firsthand how epidemic lack of evidence based care is in our maternity system is in Australia- 1/3 of women with birth trauma, 1/10 with PTSD, 1/4 of women reporting no informed cosnet for episitomoies and 43% of our healthiest women (low risk) are induced. I' m also the only HypnoBirthing practitioner in the country who has HypnoBirthed 5 children.
Every family deserve more than just a childbirth education book or an intensive weekend course- you need a mentor- one who has lived experience with the techniques of Hypnobirthing and also knows how our birthing system works.
What is Hypnobirthing about?
There are 5 distinct units covering everything from what you need for support in labour and birth, your birthing muscles and hormones, how to stay relaxed and reduce pain, what birth companion can do to best support you, best positions for birth, hypnosis to reduce pain and fears, deep levels of relaxation
how to avoid unnecessary intervention and changes you can make to your birth environment to
optimise your birth space.

What do you get?
12.5 hours of mentored class time, 5 relaxation MP3s. One on one session if needed, Hypnobirthing textbook by Marie Mongan, coloured, bound handouts of scrips, birth preferences, birth companion handouts.
If you’re just pregnant or considering becoming pregnant, also check out my e-class, as it's full of lots of evidence based information which will assist you with all the nitty-gritty decisions to make, even before you start looking for antenatal classes.
What if I am FIFO family or can't make all 5 classes?
I structure my classes bi-monthly to make sure there is plenty of time for me to teach you all course content, offer any one on one support and mentoring, so you are approaching birthing day like a birthing rockstar! Birth companions are encouraged to make as many classes as possible.
Why a bi-montly timetable?
Quality over quantity. I know I'm at my peak when I have time to recharge and give all of my birthing wisdom over during the course time. I haven't just had 5 HypnoBirths, I've been teaching it for over 8 years,
and experience has me best when I have a break between classes.
For a calm birth for you and your baby.

Are we a good fit to work together?
If you're thirsty for knowledge, want an experienced mentor who teaches, has lived experience + insider knowledge of how the maternity system works, I'd love to help prepare you for birthing day.
I am down to earth whilst enjoy making classes fun. I'm sharp with data and science and always love to pass on latest research and evidence in pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. Ideally, you're enthusiastic to put the knowledge and research into practice i.e. do your homework :) and can have a collective laugh.
Why are classes over 5 sessions?
We form new neural pathways with repetitive and regular exposure to information and experiences, so the "little and often" approach to learning is far superior and gets results. The structure of the course allows you to get the most out of classes, go home and practice the techniques and allow the information to settle, before returning to class to build on the skills.
Wherever you choose to birth.
