What is HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing is an evidence based 5 week childbirth education program that teaches you and your birth partner everything you need to know to navigate pregnancy, birth and beyond with confidence. We help you release the fears you have around birthing and parenting, help you trust your body, and give you proven tools and techniques to birth in a calmer, more comfortable way so that you can birth just the way you want to and feel incredibly positive and proud about it!
Each course runs for five 2.5 hours sessions over 5 weeks. We are flexible and there are options for private classes to meet your schedule.
Our course will help you to:
- Be prepared to give birth in calm and confidence
- Feel connected to your body, your baby and your birth partner.
- Feel informed on your choices.
- Be better supported by your birth team.
- Deal with different birth situations, from a home birth to a planned C-section.
- Learn proven labour techniques to reduce pain and fear in birth.
- Reduce the chances of postnatal depression and anxiety.
Our HypnoBirthing couples say that this is the best investment they ever made for birth and for parenting! You don’t need to go through birth feeling frightened, controlled and traumatised. Birth should not be that way. Let us support you to feel amazing in birth, no matter how your birth plays out.

What are the Benefits of HypnoBirthing?
HypnoBirthing has many benefits for pregnancy, birth and parenting. Whilst we don’t promise births free of pain or unanticipated events, we do know from our data that doing HypnoBirthing greatly reduces the need for interventions, pain medications and surgical birth. Our mothers are reporting their births are shorter, more comfortable using the techniques, and their babies are calm and nurturing well.
Fear is one of the leading causes of traumatic birth, and HypnoBirthing mothers approach their birth feeling confident and free of the fear that causes pain, and causes many parents to accept unnecessary intervention that can cascade their birth for disappointing outcomes.
HypnoBirthing couples are informed and through their knowledge from the course are able to advocate for their choices and ensure they choose care providers that support them to reach their birth goals. Partners are taught to support mum in a way that makes their birth partnership one that they will cherish forever.

HypnoBirthing® gave me a most priceless gift – a childbirth experience that was free of fear
Nothing can describe the beauty of our birthing experience with HypnoBirthing®. I never dreamed of having two children with another method that I could have so easy a labour.
The nurses said they had never seen a woman so calm, yet so strong. They couldn’t put the HypnoBirthing® book down.
Our daughter came into this world so much easier than either of us could have hoped for. With Godspeed, keep up the good work of HypnoBirthing®.
Outstanding! Easy to learn relaxation and breathing patterns guided me through a five-hour, pain-free labour. I will treasure the experience forever!
Wonderful! Tell everyone that it is the only way…my doctor is so impressed!
As a HypnoBirthing Dad, I can't talk highly enough of the course. I learn't how to support my partner in a way that made the birth so special for both of us!
