For most pregnant women, even if you already have a child, pregnancy and birth can be both thrilling and overwhelming.


Many women and their partners choose to attend childbirth classes HypnoBirthing to gather information and lessen any anxieties.

The Benefits of Prenatal Classes

Childbirth education can help build your confidence in your body’s ability to give birth.

It allows you to discuss your fears and anxieties about pregnancy and birth.


Your birth companion will learn about childbirth and how to support you on the big day.

Research studies show that the benefits of prenatal education classes can include increased confidence for labour and birth among women, higher likelihood of breastfeeding, improved communication between childbearing women and their maternity care providers, decreased need for analgesic medication in labour, and increased satisfaction with birth (Chalmers & Kingston, 2009Enkin et al., 2000).


In 2006 Declercq et al. found that 88% of the women indicated they had become more aware of maternity care options after taking classes, 78% felt more confident in their ability to give birth, and 70% described better communication with their maternity care providers. 

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.
