Thank you for your interest in Hypnobirthing Brisbane.
And congratulations on your pregnancy!
With your baby growing beautifully, safe inside your belly, you have begun a very special journey.
A journey towards birth.
A journey towards motherhood.
It’s likely that you have a whole list of questions about pregnancy, labour, and birth.
But no answers.
Perhaps you have a vision of your ideal birth experience.
But you aren’t entirely sure how to make this a reality.
You might have heard of hypnobirthing.
But you aren’t really sure what it entails.
You have come to the right place!
I love teaching hypnobirthing.
Having had two beautiful hypnobirths myself, Hypnobirthing Australia is a program that I absolutely believe in.
I feel honoured to be able to help other women achieve the birth they desire.
I will listen to your questions.
I will provide you with evidence-based information.
I will teach you the techniques you need to make your vision of birth a reality.
I will enable you to make informed choices and to advocate for yourself and for your baby.
Within you is the ability to birth your baby calmly and with confidence.
I will help you realise this ability.
You will finish your hypnobirthing course trusting your body, trusting your baby, trusting birth.
While class details and my qualifications aren’t nearly as exciting as anticipating welcoming your baby, they are essential…so here you go!
I teach the Hypnobirthing Australia Course at The MAMA Centre in East Brisbane.
The course runs over two consecutive Saturdays from 9:00 to about 4:00 each day.
The course dates for 2017 are:
January 7 and January 14
February 11 and February 18
March 11 and March 18
April 22 and April 29
May 27 and June 3
The cost is $550.00 and includes twelve hours of instruction, a fear release, a folio of resources, four Australian hypnobirthing tracks, morning tea, and additional support if needed.
Some of the strategies you will learn are relaxation exercises, affirmations, visualisations, massage, self-hypnosis, breathing techniques, a decision making framework, and empowering your birth partner to feel confident in their role.
Talking about birth is one of my favourite activities so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Bookings are done through the MAMA Centre so if you would like to book, please call them on 3333 1732.
In 2017, I am offering a FREE birth debrief with every Hypnobirthing Australia class.
In this session we will talk about your birth experience, you will have the opportunity to share the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly.
I will help guide your physical and emotional recovery, allowing you to process and to celebrate your birth.
You will also have the opportunity to discuss breastfeeding, sleeping (or lack of sleeping), and any other general adjustment issues.
And if you just want someone to hold your baby while you shower, I am happy to oblige!
Having a healthy baby is important but it isn’t all that matters, you matter too.
Processing your birth can help ease your transition to motherhood.
And it isn’t just traumatic births that need a birth debrief, even mothers who have had beautiful births need the opportunity to share their story, recount their experience, have their questions answered.
The free birth debrief can be before the hypnobirthing class (if you have had a previous birth that you would like to discuss) or after your birth.
For the session, I will come to visit you in the comfort of your own home.
A birth debrief is generally $120.00 but you get it for FREE!
In addition to being a Certified Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner, I am also a Registered Nurse and a qualified Postpartum Doula.
I have bachelor degrees in Psychology and Nursing and a graduate certificate in Professional Education.
But most of my experience stems from being a mother of two!
After experiencing my first hypnobirth I felt so in awe of myself, my body, and my baby.
Believing that every woman should have the opportunity have a positive and empowering birth, I became a Hypnobirthing Australia Certified Practitioner in 2013.
I have been happily and passionately supporting mothers ever since!
After teaching hypnobirthing for three years, I realised that the one aspect I didn’t love was saying good bye and good luck at the end of the course!
I knew the couples I taught would be well prepared for their birth.
But birth is just the beginning.
I wanted to be able to provide guidance in those first critical weeks and support throughout that first year.
In 2016 I became a Postpartum Doula.
I can now not only help you achieve a calm birth, but also approach motherhood with confidence.
If you are interested in guidance from pregnancy, to birth, and beyond, please contact me to schedule a free consultation.
I can help you begin your mothering journey with a positive birth, to navigate those first crucial weeks with confidence, and to discover how to balance the needs of your baby with your own needs as a mother and as a woman.
