Thanks again for all your help. The midwife's and my obstetrician actually said they used to bring in mums for the prenatal classes who 'smashed their labour' and they said if they still did it I would totally be one of those guest speakers as I just trusted my body and went with it. - Simone

"Thank you so much, I really appreciate the support. I'll definitely keep you in mind if I need and want to reach out for anything.

Mitch and I both really enjoyed the course and have reflected on it multiple times since having Billy saying how we both think it really helped the whole birth experience, for both of us. We can't thank you enough!" - Kathy & Mitch

For my third and final baby I decided to participate in a HypnoBirthing course facilitated by Melissa.
Although my first two births were incredible, I really want to avoid another forcep delivery and episiotomy.

I loved the idea of having a natural birth, but was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do it after having two previous epidurals.

Melissa was passionate and supportive as she taught my husband and I the tools and strategies I could use to have the birth I wanted. HypnoBirthing gave me the confidence to know that I was capable of birthing naturally and also to ensure that my husband and I were empowered to let my body be in control.

The daily relaxation and affirmations were extremely helpful in the lead up to birth, especially considering the extra stress I was feeling of how COVID-19 would affect my birth, family and babies first months.

I am proud that I was able to deliver my baby naturally and so thankful for her safe arrival and the speedy recovery I have had due to no interventions being used. I would highly recommend the program to all expectant parents" - Lia & Chris

"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

Thank you very much Melissa, throughout yesterday’s session I had the thought in my mind that how I wished I knew all about this in my first birth, I am glad we are doing this now..

My husband says he is starting to feel more comfortable about the whole birth process, and he also shares the same view as me “wish I knew about all this for the first birth”..

Once again, thank you, and we look forward to the next session 😊 - Sunita & Emerson

"You literally went above and beyond and helped me SO much when I had Airlie and I was an absolutely novice. There is nothing that is too much, or too awkward for you (I.e. literally hands on boobs helping me to pump 😂)" - Kim 

"Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity in having us join your class. We cannot thank you enough for the confidence, strength and courage you have given us going into the birth of our second child. All our thanks." - Lucie & Dylan

"Thanks for another terrific class last night.  
I’ve been suffering some insomnia the last few weeks - no problem falling asleep, but staying asleep is impossible, particularly with all the trips to the loo!


But last night was actually the soundest sleep I’ve had in weeks, and I have no doubt it was because of the deep relaxation we practised last night. Definitely set me up for a peaceful nights rest." - Erika 

Birth Stories

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.
