The course is fantastic. We can’t recommend it more highly. The content and resources are well-researched, beautiful and inspiring. Caitlin is an excellent facilitator, very knowledgeable, kind, and practical.
We planned to birth through the private health system with an obstetrician that we really liked and trusted and felt open to medical and pain intervention so in some ways we were not your typical hypnobirthing couple. However, we found hypnobirthing and Caitlin’s course to complement the medical model extremely well. We felt much more empowered and positive going into our birth after attending Caitlin’s course. This resulted in a positive birth experience of which I drew upon my hypnobirthing training to birth our baby girl, Marigold.
Alana and Ian I felt completely in control of each step, informed and supported to make the best decision at the time. So we’re happy with how everything turned out, and very happy that we did the course with you. One of the biggest benefits is that Ryan was prepared too, he understood what was happening at each step and could advocate for me when I was in ‘the zone.’ So thank you Caitlin!

Sara and Michael’s “Unremarkable Miracle”
I also wanted to thank you and praise the work you do. Your course had so much influence over our entire pregnancy and birth experience. We can’t thank you enough.
The Birth I Always Wanted
Thank you so much Caitlin for all of your knowledge and support. Your hypnobirthing classes enabled the natural birth I had always wanted (even though I don’t think I really ever knew what I meant by that until doing the classes).
Chloe and Dan’s “Rocking an Induction”
Again thank you Caitlin, for empowering me to have an amazing birthing experience, helping to eliminate all fears I had, and for educating Dan so he could support me through it all. He speaks so highly of the course and what it taught him. The way you ran the course was perfect, and we loved hearing your stories and experiences, as well as the additional knowledge you shared around working in a hospital, post partum and breastfeeding.
We attended hospital antenatal classes to prepare us and we both wish we hadn’t have bothered, what we learnt at the Hypnobirthing Australia classes doesn’t compare.
I have recommended hypnobirthing to all my pregnant friends and will continue to do so, I think it is invaluable!
Taking Control of Premature Rupture of Membranes
I also wanted to mention a few points about how I think Hypnobirthing Australia™ benefited me and my partner. Dealing with the premature rupture of membranes, we felt empowered to question what we were being told, to investigate ourselves, and to make sure we were involved in the decisions being made about our baby. From the Hypnobirthing Australia™ classes with you, we knew we had the right to do this and we felt in control of the situation.
My partner was incredibly supportive, was on my side, and knew my preferences. He had been skeptical about hypnobirthing at first but after taking the classes, we both became of the same mindset around what we wanted for the pregnancy and labour. I also felt it gave him a special role in the birth – he wasn’t just a bystander but an essential part of the birth and the classes helped him see this. In the rush, the hospital was not given my birth preferences but he knew what these were and advocated for them.
So thank you for the Hypnobirthing Australia™ classes and for your teaching.
I’m very glad I attended the classes and I don’t think I would be as happy with my birth and pregnancy experience if it wasn’t for Hypnobirthing Australia™.
Emma and Logan’s “Welcoming Isla”
Hypnobirthing Australia™ prepared me for birth. I honestly think that it allowed me to have my perfect birth. I achieved everything I had hoped and dreamed for the birth of our gorgeous baby. Thank you so much Caitlin for all your help and guidance, you were simply wonderful.
Opium and Joel’s “Welcoming Winta”
I did it!
I never had one moment of fear, just pure trust in myself and my baby.
I worked for this experience to be fearless…I set myself up for success.
Meditation, yoga, I wateched endless birth videos of YouTube, and of course Caitlin taught us the magic of hypnobirthing!
