"I loved the course. I would highly recommend to everyone and anyone to invest in doing this. I learnt a lot more than I thought I would about birth and the human body and what we really are capable of. The course also educated my partner and made him so much more comfortable going in to the birth and knowing how to support me and what to expect." - Kathy

My vision is that women don’t fear birth. That they strive to empower themselves through education; and confidently trust in their instincts throughout pregnancy, birth and parenthood.

Are you ready to get evidence-based information on what birth actually looks like?

Judgement free support as you hone your inner voice, and learn to trust your instincts without fear or hesitant?


HypnoBirthing is a complete antenatal course designed to educate and empower families and I can't wait to share it with you.

"We can’t thank Melissa enough for her support and all of the amazing information she taught us. Melissa has such a clear and positive way of educating and there wasn’t any questions too silly or weird she wouldn’t answer!" - Danielle and Dave

So what is HypnoBirthing?

Perhaps you are excited for birth, but not quite sure what ACTUALLY happens. And you're looking for some tools or techniques to help work through the intensity of it all?

HypnoBirthing is a complete ante-natal education program, consisting of five modules taught weekly.

 

A total of 12.5 hours of evidenced based content, delivered in 2.5hr live online classes.
 

Designed to empower and inform parents, HypnoBirthing is as much a philosophy as it is a technique.

Every baby and every family make up is different and it is hard to fully anticipate the change the arrival of a newborn baby will bring to your world.

 

Postpartum can be a vulnerable time for families, in particular for mothers. Sometimes well-meaning advice actually creates confusion and self-doubt.

 

Often a chat without fear of judgement or reprimand is all mum is looking for, my role is to act as a sounding board, provide encouragement and help you tap into your instincts as parents.  

 

The most liberating thing for me as a new mum was realising that there was no rule book, or one size fits all solution, that whilst I needed a trusted voice to guide me, ultimately I knew what was best.


Visits can be arranged at a time that is convenient for you and your family - weekdays, weeknight and weekends (subject to availability).
 

Sessions can be pre-booked or scheduled as required.

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.
