The experience of giving birth has long-term implications for women's health and wellbeing… A good birth is the best start to parenthood that both mum and baby could ask for. So why not make it an experience to remember - for the right reason?
If you want to go into your birth feeling empowered, excited, in control and free from fear and anxiety then HYPNOBIRTHING is for you. An amazing birthing experience is built from four things - preparation, education, great support and relaxation tools. Hypnobirthing is a practice that is all about prepared and positive birth.
Hypnobirthing advocates empowering women and couples to have key information about options regarding birth so that you are able to make informed choices about what is best for you. Hypnobirthing Australia workshops provide you with a tool kit of proven skills and techniques for relaxation and fear release to take with you into your labour... giving you the confidence and support to have a calm birth - however it unfolds.
Why choose Hypnobirthing? Because it can…
Shorten labour time, in particular the first phase of labour
Significantly reduce the pain of labour through the use of relaxation and self-hypnosis techniques
Reduce anxiety and fear approaching and during birth
Empower you to know your options and rights regarding birth before labour begins

I often get asked what the difference is between our program and other versions of Hypnobirthing or child birth education such as Calm Birth - click here for a link to a blog explaining the differences.
