WHAT IS HYPNOBIRTHING? Hypnobirthing is a term used to describe an approach to childbirth that focuses on preparing you for a positive and calm birthing experience. The "hypno" part of hypnobirthing is really just a fancy word for a deep, focussed state of relaxation. I promise that I will not have you clucking like a chicken!!! What you will learn are proven techniques such as visualisations, relaxation, breathing & self-hypnosis that will support you to have a calm, positive birth experience. I do not promote that your birth will be pain free either, however, as our techniques help to support you to remain calm & focussed many mothers do report that their labours were more manageable for a number of reasons. Alongside these techniques you will also receive a full compliment of pregnancy & birth education.
WHEN SHOULD I START A COURSE? The ideal time to start a Hypnobirthing Australia(TM) course is between 20-30 weeks of pregnancy. If you are outside this range there are still options as its never too late, just get in touch with me asap! I have taught a couple at 36wks who went on to have a wonderful birth experience.
WHAT IF I CHOOSE / OR NEED A C-SECTION? No problems. Our course content & your "toolkit" for birth is applicable to all birthing situations & preferences. What you learn can be applied equally to a C-section (both planned & emergency) as well as natural, vaginal births. Completing a course with me will be invaluable for all birthing situations & locations (hospital/birth centre/home). However, if you know in advance you are birthing via C-section we do have several specific resources for you - again just get in touch. We really do have you covered.
DOES MY BIRTH PARTNER NEED TO ATTEND ALL SESSIONS? I strongly encourage that your birthing partner be available to attend all sessions as the program is designed as a birth education course for both Mum & her birth support, both of you attending all sessions will maximise the benefits to you both. The role that your birthing partner can play on your birthing day can be pivotal & its important that they have all the knowledge, tools & information as well. That said, I understand that sometimes for various reasons they may not be able to make it & that's ok - please just let me know in advance so we can discuss.
HOW MUCH ARE CLASSES? Small group course $495- Hypnobubs On-Line Course $199- Hypnobubs Upgrade (On-line course with private session upgrade to compliment your on-line learning) $349- *Payment plans are available & health fund rebate may be available if you are with HIF*
DO YOU ATTEND MY BIRTH? No! Whilst you will have my full support in the lead up to your birth if you wish, my role as a birth educator is to share this wonderful antenatal education program with you so that you & your birthing partner are well equipped & armed with all you need to be able to rock your birth together. That said, I do like to follow up post birth to see how you all are & I LOVE receiving pictures of your little hypnobaby & hearing your birth story!! If you are looking for an additional birth support a Doula would be a wonderful addition to your birth team. I have contact with several local doulas & would be more than happy to refer you on to my contacts - just let me know.
