The Hypnobirthing Australia Positive Birth Program™ is an Australian developed childbirth education program with a difference. Not only do we provide a comprehensive and complete childbirth education, we also help parents to confidently prepare for their best birth by teaching hypnobirthing skills so that you can remain relaxed and birth with calm.
There is no pendulum waving in this class! Our program is evidence-based, and we only provide the most up-to-date information, delivered in a straight-forward easy to understand manner. When it comes to birth the more you know the less you fear!
The hypnobirthing techniques that we teach are down-to-earth and easy to learn. We encourage support partners to attend training and incorporate them into the techniques, they won't know what do to during the birth! However the techniques are easily adaptable if you birth without a support person, after all, your body and your baby know how to work together. Together you make a perfect team.
You might be wondering what the 'hypno' part is about, it's simply a very natural, deep relaxation skill that we teach you as just one of the various evidenced-based techniques you will learn.
What hypnobirthing is NOT about is adhering to a certain type of birth. We promote and provide the tools for a positive birthing experience. When a mother and her support person can approach birth without fear and with knowledge, good support and the tools to
remain calm and relaxed, then any birth can be a positive birth, even a caesarean section. In fact, we offer a world first positive caesarean course!

How is the course delivered and can it be flexible?
The course consists of four units (3 hours for each unit) which are typically delivered over two full weekend days. I usually allow a week in-between each full day so you have time to digest the information and have any questions ready.
There are options if the scheduled class does not fit in with you. These include having a private session, or doing half online and half in person. I'm flexible as I am passionate about helping parents achieve their best birth. Please contact me to discuss flexible options that might work for you.
When is the best time to attend classes?
Anytime is possible! However between 20-30 weeks is ideal so you have ample time to practice the techniques.
If you do it later though that is also not a problem. The most important thing is that you have something under your belt rather than nothing. I personally have taught two mothers at 37 weeks.
