How? Hypnobirthing Australia is an Australian written program to educate and empower families through the birthing journey. Our hypnobirthing courses teach you the tools for your birth including: visualisation, self hypnosis, guided meditation, relaxation and breathing to allow you to release any fears and become empowered in your birthing ability.
When? Classes are run regularly throughout the year. They are either a full weekend (9-4pm each day) or a set of four weekday evenings (7-9pm). Please contact us to find out which workshop would suit your family. *private classes are available on request.
Where? All classes are held in the outer East of Melbourne (Ferntree Gully). Specific locations on enquiry.
How far along should I be? It is recommended you are between 24-34wks, but you can still gain a lot right up until your due date. If you are unsure please contact us for guidance.
Is it too late? It is never too late to benefit from Hypnobirthing Australia.
What will I learn? There are four separate but inclusive sessions.
- Creating and maintaining a positive mindset
- Choices, knowledge and tools for empowered birthing
- Preparing the mind and body for birth
- Birth, bringing it all together
Each session brings a unique understanding of your body and your mind, allowing you to release any fears and looking forward to birthing your baby. Visit What is Hypnobirthing
Should my parents/birth support come? Absolutely, we welcome a support person with you. Included in your price is attendance by two people including a professional manual and free tracks to continue your relaxation at home. There are just as many benefits for the support people as for the birthing woman.
Does it matter how or where I am birthing? Not at all- we encourage women birthing in private hospitals, birth centres, public hospitals and at home to attend. Everyone can benefit from having more knowledge and less fear. Hypnobirthing Australia supports the woman's choice in where and how they give birth.
