No matter what direction your birth takes, you are central to your birth experience.
Birth is a mind & body experience and with the right knowledge, tools, support and preparation you can achieve a positive birth experience. Hypnobirthing Australia’s program is designed specifically to support you and your birth partner to experience the best birth possible for you and one you’ll remember forever.
Hypnobirthing Australia is based on proven evidence-based information.
Taking a holistic approach, you will learn about the physiology of birth and how hormones impact the labour and birth process.
These hormones act to support the labour and birth process as well as provide pain relieving properties.
Evidence has shown that women who are fully informed and feel supported in their birth decisions are more likely to
report a positive birth experience, regardless of their mode of birth.
Based on a philosophy of self-hypnosis and deep relaxation, the techniques you’ll learn in class can help you release fear and anxiety that may prevent you from experiencing a positive birth. The classes are informative and interactive and can help you create a positive mindset. You will develop strategies to avoid unnecessary interventions and gain the confidence to face whatever path your labour and birth takes.
Utilising techniques like breathing, visualisation, acupressure and massage can assist you in becoming deeply aware of what your body is doing during labour. Your birth partner can feel a greater sense of purpose as they help you use these tools,
encourage you and advocate on your behalf.
The program is delivered over 12 hours and covers the following:
Birth is a normal life event and for most healthy low risk women achieving a natural birth is well within your power when you are prepared.
No matter what journey your birth takes, utilising the techniques you’ll learn what to expect leading up to your birth & what your options are.
As you journey through the labour and birth process, you will feel empowered and ready to meet your baby.
