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.
Hypnobirthing is both a philosophy of birthing and a set of proven, evidence-based techniques.
The hypno part of hypnobirthing refers to the hypnotherapy that we use during the program to release fears and to condition ourselves to release endorphins during birth.
When a mother and her birth companion are able to approach birth without fear and with knowledge, good support, and tools they are confident using…then their birthing can be a positive and empowering experience.
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.
I teach the Hypnobirthing Australia Course at The Light Centre For Transformation in New Farm.
The course runs over two consecutive Saturdays from 9:30 to about 4:00 each day.
The course dates for 2017 are:
July 8 and July 15
August 12 and August 19
September 9 and September 16
The cost is $550.00 and includes twelve hours of instruction, a fear release, a folio of evidence based resources, four Australia hypnobirthing tracks, an ebook, a birth rehearsal video, a birth debrief, and additional support if needed.
Morning tea is provided.
Free parking is available at the course site.
Some of the strategies you will learn are
– relaxation exercises
– an active birth circuit
– breathing techniques
– acupressure for pregnancy, labour, and birth
– introduction to breastfeeding
– a decision making framework
– empowering your birth partner to feel confident in their role
