Antenatal Classes

Birth preparation for both you and your partner is incredibly important, no matter whether it’s your first birth, or you’ve had previous births.

It’s important to ensure that you are informed and supported along the way, that you know your rights, and the choices you have around outcomes. It’s also important that you and your birth partner or your birth team have establised some really good anchors, that you go into the birth feeling calm, confident and trusting in the process. And, that everyone including your care providers, have a clear understanding of your preferences.

If you want a positive experience, no matter how your birth unfolds, it’s essential that you are prepared.

I am a certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ Positive Birth Program™ Childbirth Educator. I can also offer you a range of classes from private, to group, to online. I can also support you with refresher courses if you’ve done antenatal classes before and you’re preparing yourself for another birth and would like some reminders.

With any of my courses, you are provided with a printed folio which includes a comprehensive compilation of resources, and also access to an online portal with a range of extra downloads including ebooks, music downloads, MP3s, birth videos and lots of extra support. Contact me for more information about the courses on offer so we can ensure we pick the right course for you.

Please note: During C-19 all of the options can be done via Zoom or video conference

About The Hypnobirthing Australia™ Positive Birth Program™

The Hypnobirthing Australia™ program is for you if you want to feel informed about the process of birth, educated about your choices, in control of your experience, and confident that you will have the positive birth that you want.

Instead of feeling overwhelmed, be prepared, take control of your birth, and look forward to giving birth and becoming a parent!

The confidence you gain through the Hypnobirthing Australia™ course enables you to know that you are making the informed choices that will deliver you the positive birth that you want.

  • You will feel calm, able to enjoy your pregnancy and look forward to your birth.
  • You will feel less overwhelmed so you can start to take control of your experience and make the decisions that are right for you.
  • You will feel confident about labour as you will have tools that you know will help you cope.
  • You will trust your partner as you know they are informed, able to support you, and prepared to serve as an advocate for both you and your baby.
  • You won’t feel alone. Through meeting other likeminded couples, you will begin to establish your village. You will realise there is an entire community of caregivers, practitioners and families who believe in positive birth and who are happy to encourage and to help.

The Hypnobirthing Australia™ program is a modern, evidence-based, professionally respected program that teaches you everything you need to know to have an empowered and positive birth experience. 

You learn about the hormones of birth and the physiology of birth. Gaining understanding of how your body and baby have been designed to work together enables you to trust the process.

We talk about functional pain in a supportive way and teach you strategies so you can cope with every stage of labour.

We talk about interventions and provide you with education about what may be suggested and give you a decision making framework to assist you in making informed choices.

You learn self-hypnosis to let go of fears and to release endorphins during birth (this is the hypno part of hypnobirthing).

You will feel reassured not just about birth but about the postpartum period too so you can enter parenthood confident in the continuity of support and care.

The aim of Hypnobirthing Australia™ is to empower you to have your own unique version of a positive birth.
