HypnoBirthing 

Tools, Techniques, and Support to help you achieve a positive birth - whatever that looks like for you!

Heard so many birth horror stories, but don't want that to be your experience? 


Thinking, how do I avoid it - it's inevitable right?

WRONG!

You absolutely can love your birth!

ARE YOU READY TO STOP FEARING LABOUR? TO FIND OUT WHAT BIRTH ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE?


To truly believe that your body is oh so capable? To feel completely confident in your birth partner's ability to support you.

If you answered YES to any of these, then welcome! I’m Melissa and I work with expecting mamas and their support team to get prepped and pumped for birth.

What is HypnoBirthing...


HYPNOBIRTHING IS A COMPLETE ANTENATAL COURSE DESIGNED TO EDUCATE AND EMPOWER FAMILIES. 

I can't wait to share it with you more about the three C's.

Confidence

Internationally renowned, EVIDENCE BASED program - endorsed by the Australian College of Midwives

Calm

Enables you to release of any fears you have around birth, helping you to believe in your  instinctual ability to birth

Conviction

Skills and knowledge to reduce your likelihood of medical intervention and assist with pain relief.

 When you think about giving birth, what type of questions come to mind? 
 

HOW DO THEY MAKE YOU FEEL?

 

What's your strongest emotion?

"I was nervous and anxious about giving birth when I first found out I was pregnant.   

After the course I felt excited and so much more educated about birth...

 I felt a lot more comfortable; it gave me a lot more confidence in knowing I could do it and that my body was made for this." - Kathy

HypnoBirthing can help you...

Learn techniques to help you work through the intensity of labour.

Explore what happens practically and physically in labour, helping you to feel prepared and calm to give birth.

 


Engage your partner so they know what to expect and feel confident in supporting you. 

Deal with special circumstances and avoid proposed medical interventions.

Before

I'm nervous and anxious about giving birth.
 

I just want to be confident and not scared through labour.

Terrified that I have a very low pain threshold.

I'm apprehensive after traumatic first birth.

I like being in control and I'm anxious about not being in control during labour.

I want to find out what birth is really like.

My partner doesn't know what to do or how to support me during labour.

I want to avoid medical induction and intervention in labour, but don't know how.

I feel scared, nervous and uninformed.

After

I'm confident and excited to give birth. 
 

I feel comfortable that I have the tools to manage the intensity of birth.

My partner feels confident in supporting me and informed on what to expect.

I understand that every birth is different and that by being informed and prepared I can feel in control of my experience. 


I have learnt about the amazing way in which my body is designed to birth my baby.

I feel empowered to discuss my wishes with my care provider, and comfortable asking questions to understand my options clearly. 

I trust I need to allow my body to do what it instinctively knows what to do.

I can't wait to give birth!

No matter the path it takes, your birth CAN be a positive experience.

HypnoBirthing will get you informed, so you can be empowered.

"For me, the birthing part of labour was not nearly as uncomfortable as I had imagined and in fact, I found that part exciting and amazing. 

 

Chloe was put onto my chest straight away and the feelings of love, amazement, feeling proud, empowered and relieved all at the same time was fantastic.


Dave was an amazing birth partner over the 24-hour process. He prompted me to change things when something wasn’t working. 

 

Best of all he held me up through the intense part of the surges helping me feel supported.

 

We can’t thank Melissa enough for sharing her HypnoBirthing knowledge with us in her program.

 

HypnoBirthing really did allow us to feel in control, more relaxed and empowered leading into and throughout our birth."

"Everything went perfectly... absolutely perfect! SO happy.

The course was so enlightening and worth doing. Even if you are skeptical about the 'hypno' side of thing - it's worth doing just to retrain your brain and informing yourself on the various decisions involved in labour."

- Kiara, 2nd time mum

"I now feel confident and excited to give birth. I loved the course, it's so insightful and I loved it so much. Couldn't imagine birthing without it." - Sam

Your body is perfectly designed to give birth

Childbirth is an instinctual and natural process and your body, and your baby, already know what to do.

 

HypnoBirthing cuts through myths, fears and anxieties that surround birth and deliver evidence-based education, tools and techniques. 

 

SO YOU CAN HAVE COMPLETE FAITH IN YOUR BODY, YOUR INSTINCTS AND THE BIRTHING PROCESS. 

 

 AND so you can have the best chance at experiencing a calm, gentle, joyful birth for you, your baby, and your birth partner.
