The premise of HypnoBirthing is that a mother and her baby instinctively know how to birth. Classes explain, explore and dispel fears, anxieties and myths surrounding childbirth.

HypnoBirthing® is an educational course that can enrich the experience of pregnancy and childbirth. It is a complete evidence based education on the birthing process and the factors that can affect its natural flow.

​The overall effect of practising HypnoBirthing techniques is that birthing parents are better able to appreciate the benefits of calm, gentle birthing, making the experience a joyful one for mother, baby, and birth partner.


The HypnoBirthing program and antenatal class is now used in six Australian hospitals, is recommended by midwives and obstetricians, and has over 180 certified practitioners because it is evidenced based, and it works!

Maybe you're just not quite sure what ACTUALLY happens, and you're looking for some tools or techniques to help work through the intensity of it all. 

Once you understand the how, you WILL feel CONFIDENT and EXCITED to birth.

I feel so strongly about new families finding their own voice and doing things the right way for them. I want mum's to be taken care of and partners to feel a valued part of the experience.

The support I offer is an sounding board, to help you cut through the noise and find what works best for you. Sure, I can offer advice - but in my experience, your mamma instinct already knows what needs to be done, it's just a matter of recognising it amongst the intensity that is having a newborn baby!

If you feel like you need help - ASK. Whether it is through a service like mine or with your healthcare provider, it is essential that you get the care and support you need, so that you, your baby and your wider family can thrive.

As individual needs can vary, it’s best to get in touch and discuss the best approach for you.

I would like to acknowledge the land on which I reside and work is the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri and Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation and I pay my respects to elders past, present and future. I also acknowledge that their cultural and spiritual connection to land are still as important to the Wurundjeri and Bunurong people today.
