What is hypnobirthing & what is included in the course?
The Hypnobirthing Australia™ Positive Birth Program is an antenatal course unlike any other and will provide you with a toolkit of techniques to help you throughout pregnancy and birth. The course begins by focusing on creating the right mindset for pregnancy and birth. We focus on how the conscious and subconscious minds interact. This then carries over into how hypnosis or guided meditations, can act as a shortcut to the subconscious and therefore help you rewire your brain to release any fears you may have in the lead up to this life changing event.
Once we master the mind, we learn about the body and how to use it effectively during birth. Ultimately, understanding the mind and then, understanding the facts about how our bodies are designed for birth, we learn that one can affect the other. By preparing in this way you can trust your body knows what to do and more readily use hypnosis to manage those strong sensations you may feel while in labour. No matter what turn your birthing journey takes these techniques can help you and your birth partner prepare for the big day. As this is an antenatal course, we also cover possible options that might be important to you when the day comes and how to have these conversations with your care givers beforehand.
You will also have an abundance of resources made available to you including: MP3 guided hypnosis tracks, downloadable PDFs, birthing partner's quick guide sheet for the big day, example letters for your caregivers and signage for your birth space. The biggest, most important thing this course offers is a positive and empowering environment for you and your birth partner. I am passionate about guiding women on the road to giving birth and hypnobirthing is basically just a fancy word for a positive birth.
What stage in my pregnancy should I start the course?
You can start any time during your pregnancy, it is ultimately up to you! The optimal time to commence would be between week 20 and 30 of your pregnancy to allow you plenty of time to practice practice practice!
Where are your classes held?
Private Online or Face to Face classes where I travel to you, will become regularly available in May 2022 from this website.
I'm happy to take enquiries now via email and will assist where I can when I can step away from my newborn.
Group Face to Face classes are held in the centre of Ipswich at Studio 4305 behind the Ipswich Massage and Herbal Spa. Head to my services page to view the class schedule.
How long does the course take?
The entire course is a 12 hour commitment. For private sessions I recommend breaking this up into 4 x 3 hour classes.
Online Courses are at your own pace so may take more or less time depending.
When do we make payment & what method is available?
Online payment options are available now for group classes at the time of booking.
If you have any concerns please feel free to contact me directly to make alternate arrangements.
What is your certification?
I am a certified Hypnobirthing Practitioner Childbirth Educator (HPCE) through Hypnobirthing Australia™ to teach their Positive Birth Program. I am also a Hypnobirthing Mama who has tried and tested these techniques and am confident they will help you stay focused on a positive birth.
Why is there limited availability May 2022?
Because I had another baby! I'll be offering group classes and private classes from May 2022 as I slowly emerge from the newborn bubble. Please contact me if you want to find out more.
