Hypnobirthing: Welcome

The original 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.

Basically – we promote POSITIVE birth and are well prepared for whatever turns our birth may or may not take. 

Hypnobirthing Australia™ has featured on the popular Channel 7 Sunrise program and on Channel 9’s Today Show. We have been interviewed and provided commentary for the ABC, national newspapers and radio programs, popular magazines and online forums. The word is spreading fast that a positive birth doesn’t just come down to ‘luck’… it is very much to do with preparation.

Hypnobirthing is as much a philosophy of birthing as it is techniques. When a mother and her birth partner are able to approach their birth without fear and with knowledge, good support, and tools for the birth – then their birthing can be a positive and empowering experience.
The ‘hypno’ part of ‘hypnobirthing’ refers to the hypnotherapy that we use during the program to release fears and condition ourselves to release endorphins at times 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 driver’s seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. This is likely to reduce the need for interventions during your birthing.

Hypnobirthing uses a combination of different techniques and philosophies that have existed for many, many years. Ancient wisdom is combined with modern theory – giving you the advantage in your acquisition of knowledge as you prepare for your birth.

Natural birth is not a new concept! Our ancient mothers and sisters birthed naturally without the use of anaesthesia or many of the interventions that are common today. The Hypnobirthing Australia program can help you to prepare for a calm and positive natural birth; whilst at the same time having the knowledge and tools to effectively deal with any special circumstances if they were to arise.

Dr. Grantly Dick-Read, an English obstetrician was one of the first ‘modern’ doctors to forward the concept of natural birthing in the 1920′s. Since then there have been many influential advocates for natural birth, such as the French obstetrician Michel Odent and leading midwife/author Ina May Gaskin. Popular courses have also been developed to prepare mothers for birth. Some examples are: The Lamaze Method, The Bradley Method, Hypnobirthing – the Leclaire Method, HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method, Hypnobirthing International, GentleBirth, Calmbirth, Hypnobabies and the list goes on. The Hypnobirthing Australia™ program incorporates the teachings of many famous and respected birthing experts throughout history – giving you the complete advantage in your preparation for childbirth. You deserve special care as you make this exciting and unique journey with positive anticipation and confidence.

In your classes, you will gain an understanding of how the birthing muscles work in perfect harmony, as they were designed to when your body is relaxed and you have faith in your bodies ability to birth.
