HypnoBirthing Practitioner & Midwife
As a midwife of 30 years I have cared for many women in labour, and this has been complemented over the past 9 years as a HypnoBirthing practitioner.
It has been extremely rewarding to have been witness to many women whom I have taught the HypnoBirthing program, achieve a calm, rewarding birth experience, free of intervention. The natural euphoric feeling post birth is palpable among all those involved in the birthing experience when a woman relaxes into her birthing body, completely trusting in it’s innate ability. Birthing is as it should be.
Learn ways to achieve a natural and gentle birthing experience. Through the HypnoBirthing program I can teach you how to thoroughly relax, let go of fear and tension, and trust in your body’s ability to orchestrate birth with such precision. Once you have learnt these skills, you will be on the road to having the best possible birthing experience.
Welcome! My biggest warmest congratulations on your pregnancy!
My name is Fiona, and I am a mother to 3 precious loves who every day light up my world.
Through my journey into parenthood I have experienced the emotions of loss, the trials of artificial conception, and ultimately the magic of childbirth. Each of my births were very very different, and through them I grew from a place of distrust in my own body in my first birth, to a place of power, confidence and fearlessness by my last. The more I learnt and educated myself about the choices that were available to me, the more empowered I became in my birth decisions, which ultimately led me to experience pure joy. My first and last births were poles apart, a true testament to what the power of education can do!
As well as being a mother, I have spent the last 7 years working as a pregnancy and newborn photographer, which has allowed me to speak constantly with beautiful women both in the lead up to their birth as well as soon after. The more I spoke to my new mothers in my studio about their expectations prior to and then the reality of their birth, the more I learned that so many women lack the support, knowledge and confidence to believe in themselves and their birth. I noticed that most women place the outcome of their labour in the hands of others, not believing that they themselves have the power to create the birth they desire. But the most important thing I discovered is that most women lack the understanding of the impact their birth can have in the months and years following.
Speaking to these women, together with my own experiences of birth, has led me to HypnoBirthing.
As well as a HypnoBirthing practitioner I am also a certified birth and postnatal doula with Australian Doulas, available to support new mothers and their partners as they transition into parenthood and through the early postnatal period. I am also currently studying a Bachelor of Counselling at Edith Cowan University with the aim to specialise in Perinatal Counselling in the near future. If desired, professional birth photography can also be added to the services I currently provide.
No matter what you want for your pregnancy, birth and parenting ahead, I will be there to support and nurture you and your family throughout your journey.
I first learnt about HypnoBirthing during my third pregnancy. I wanted to learn about my body and truly trust myself again. I learnt this and so much more! HypnoBirthing gave me confidence in myself to birth my baby my way. It was an amazing, empowering birthing experience that I want to share and teach with others.
My background is Nurse/Midwife with over 10 years experience. I work at Southern Midwifery Group Practice, a continuity of care model and currently on maternity leave until January 2018.
Hi Beautiful Mummas,
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile.
My name is Kirsty, I’m 35 years young and have a beautiful HypnoBirthing baby boy, River who is 22 months old. I love being a stay at home mum especially living on the Gold Coast because we get to spend our days at the beach. I am a happy, positive, enthusiastic and healthy mama. I love yoga, meditating, nature and using alternative methods to heal and be the healthiest version of myself. I am a school teacher by trade and hold a Masters in Special Education, I’m also a yoga teacher and now a HypnoBirthing teacher as I love sharing knowledge and empowering people. After my own amazing birth using HypnoBirthing along with other natural therapies – yoga, meditation, acupuncture, massage and kinesiology as part of my birth preparation, I just had to share this AMAZING birth education with all women far and wide. I want all women to experience a calm, positive and informed birth no matter what journey their birth takes. I want all women to know that birth is NORMAL, NATURAL and ACHIEVABLE without the use of drugs and interventions. I want all women to meet their BIRTH GOALS whatever that might look like for them. I want all women to come out of birth feeling like GODDESS WARRIORS (like one of my HypnoBirthing mumma said she felt after her birth) even if it doesn’t go to plan. This is why I became a HypnoBirthing practitioner and I want to help you achieve your birth goal. I love that I support women from the moment they begin their HypnoBirthing journey to the moment they meet their baby.
Below is my own birth story and have attached some birthing images (taken during the last 45mins of labour). I hope you enjoy reading and can see in the photos can see just how calm. in control and relaxed I was using the HypnoBirthing techniques and tools.
It’s hard to believe that River, my beautiful ‘baby’ boy is nearly 18 months old already. I will always remember the day he was born as being both intense and blissful, just how nature intended. Although I had an amazing birth that went exactly how I visualised, I was reluctant to share my story as I felt guilty, I knew other women have had contrasting experiences. But when I do open up and share I have to roll my eyes when people say ‘oh you just lucky with your birth’.
I want to reassure all mums-to-be that you don’t have to get lucky to enjoy your birth experience as much as I did. I’m not lucky, I just worked hard during pregnancy to prepare my mind, body and soul for my birth. I believe most women can have a blissful birth like me. My advice; be prepared to do all that you can to reach your desired outcome. The two biggest things are to educate yourself on the journey ahead and use HypnoBirthing to prepare your mind and body to be ready for birth.
Throughout my pregnancy not only did I religiously practice HypnoBirthing from 20 weeks until I went into labour at 41 weeks and 2 days but I also meditated and practiced yoga daily. I made this as routine as brushing my teeth twice a day. I also visited the acupuncturist, chiropractor, kinesiologist, massage therapist regularly, invested in a private midwife, read heaps of books and nourished my body by consuming a plant-based diet. I was guided to do everything in my power to be ready for my birth day. It wasn’t a chore for me, I loved it. My motto was that if I could do everything in my power to be ready and it still doesn’t go to plan then so be it. That is okay. I would accept that my baby decided to take a different path into this world. But it was in my power to do what I could and not leave it to luck or chance.
The only time I felt some anxiety was when I went past the expected due date. I was adamant I didn’t want to be induced so I had acupuncturist sessions, massages with clary sage, made love, bounced on the fit ball, walked, practiced nipple stimulation, ate dates and watched heaps of HypnoBirthing births on Youtube while crying my eyes out (I think the last one did the trick!).
Nine days after the expected due date I woke up at 2am with period like pains, I didn’t share this with my partner but listened to rainbow relaxation and went back to sleep. At 4am I woke and they had intensified so I called Steph my midwife. She told me to sleep and rest, it would be a long day. I took a hot water bottle and went back to sleep until 5.30am at which point the surges intensified. I woke my partner up and we began practicing our HypnoBirthing techniques, I listened to my rainbow relaxation visualisation track while breathing and smelling clary sage. The surges seemed very close together and although I was connected to my breath I just couldn’t get comfortable using the fit ball, on all fours or even in the bath. I wanted to constantly empty my bowels and was beginning to feel a little anxious. I thought I would have time to lie around watching movies, relaxing, eating, showering or going for walks! I had organised homeopathic supplements prior to labour and started taking the supplement for rapid labour. Around 6.30am I ended up on the toilet with my drink bottle and listening to the rainbow relaxation while Guy, my partner stood at the door timing my surges.
Alone on the toilet I totally let go, riding the waves of labour, totally surrendering and getting lost in my breathing. Every minute or so my entire body was overcome by a surge, they were incredibly powerful but I can honestly say I felt no pain, they were intense but only mildly uncomfortable. They felt so natural.
I felt like I was on an amazing carpet ride, eyes closed, knees wide apart, circling my hips, circling my head, doing light touches on my belly and back, moaning and went totally within. My partner had contacted the midwife again, she said that the surges were too far apart and inconsistent but to contact her if I felt pressure in my bum. At about 10.30am my membranes released while I was on the toilet, my breathing changed and my surges forced me to begin bearing down so that I could now feel pressure in my bum. I started to get a little concerned because I didn’t want to have the baby in the toilet. After a phone call from Guy, my midwife came straight away. After checking me externally she advised that the birth was very close! She knew we wanted a water birth and reckoned we had just enough time to get to GCUH where we had booked a birthing suite. The most difficult part of the experience was walking down our 71 stairs, stopping midway to breathe through a surge. It was surreal to be lying down in the car, trying to moderate my surges as all my body wanted to do was bear down. I didn’t want a car birth! In the car, I listened to rainbow relaxation using head phones and wore an eye mask so I could focus on my breathing and block out external stimuli.
We arrived at the hospital at 12.15pm, I walked to the birthing suite, refusing the wheel chair as I didn’t want to slow the surges down. I got into the warm bath straight away, the water was very soothing. I continued listening to the rainbow relaxation and focusing on my breathing, surrendering to my body’s surges and allowing them to guide me. After parking the car my partner finally arrived, the midwife has just sent him a text to hurry up as River was well on his way. Guy was straight in the pool with me and we began working together on breathing and visualising just like we had practiced all those times before. Guy gently reminded me to relax my face, relax my jaw, relax my shoulders, to focus on my breathing, he talked me through a visualisation of lotus flower opening, just like my vagina was doing with River. In my mind I could see the petals unfolding and River’s head emerging, just as I had practised during my pregnancy.
The only time the midwife interacted with us was when she checked River’s heart beat and wiped my face with a rose water cloth. Within the pool my body instinctively knew what position to get into, I was up on my toes, knees apart in a squat holding onto the side of the pool, bearing down while my partner continued to remind me to relax my face, jaw, mouth and shoulders. I birthed River in one go, catching him in the water and pulling him up to my chest, which the midwife and my partner missed as they didn’t realise it would be so quick! He was born at 1pm, a day baby which I didn’t expect at all. I naturally birthed the placenta as I had arranged to encapsulate it for later consumption. I patiently watched River to the crawl to my breast and attach on his own without interruption.
We thought it was totally normal when our new family left the hospital at 6pm that night, 4 hours after giving birth. On the way home we even stopped to get vegan take-out to refuel my body and were sitting eating dinner with our new baby shortly after. What joy to be home as a family that evening.
Everyone’s birth is a unique journey and I believe we have the power to choose our experience, even though it may not go to plan. HypnoBirthing is one of the most powerful ways to take ownership and create the birth outcome you desire. My sister who also used HypnoBirthing and had a natural water birth three weeks prior to me said this about birth, I totally agree “Failing to plan is planning to fail”.

HYPNOBIRTHING – The Mongan Method
“Childbirth is not something to be feared; it is a natural expression of life. With HypnoBirthing, your pregnancy and childbirth will become the gentle, life-affirming process it was meant to be. ”
Ladies and Gentlemen… you do not have to be afraid! You do not have to recount the horrific events and suffer from the trauma, guilt and sorrow that so many feel after ‘enduring’ a birth they felt no control over.
What if… what if you could feel in control, at peace and absolutely empowered through your birth journey? What if you could recount the story with tears of joy and pride?
It doesn’t have to be “what if” when you learn to use the correct techniques and develop the proper mindset.
This birth is yours and I want to give you everything you need to feel and BE empowered then birth like a BOSS!

Hi, I’m Laura and in 2015 I did the HypnoBirthing® classes in preparation for the birth of my first baby. I am a lawyer and what struck me about HypnoBirthing® is that it is anything but “wish-washy”.It is evidenced based; explaining the physiology of birth, eliminating fears, reducing pain and promoting a woman’s natural birthing instincts through practical tools and techniques. Importantly it also teaches you how to handle an unexpected birth journey both emotionally and in discussions with your care provider.
My husband and I had the most incredible positive birth experience due to what we learnt in the classes. It has made me so passionate about empowering women and men to be fully informed about birth. With our second baby we had another amazing birth. Shortly thereafter I knew that I had to become a HypnoBirthing® practitioner so I could teach people how to have a positive birth experience.
Book in for my classes and join with me in the positive birth movement. Give yourself the best chance possible to start your parenting journey (and your baby’s own life) on an incredible high.
For more information on HypnoBirthing® just message me, I’m more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
I practice as a Midwife in an Antenatal Clinic with a holistic approach to support women throughout their pregnancy and preparing them to meet their new baby at birth.

My name is Karen.
I’m a Wife, and Mother of 2 beautiful HynoBirthing babies Koa 4 & Keoni 2.
I love all things health and wellbeing and this is where my journey begin.
As a first time mum at 39 years of age I was told that I would be looking to have a C-section purely because of my age… I was shocked why? I was healthy my baby was healthy why could I not birth my baby naturally?! So as I always would do with anything in my life I went about educating myself about all things birth. This is where I came across HypnoBirthing and my life’s purpose changed. I absolutely believed I could birth my baby naturally. Through learning HypnoBirthing I became so confident about trusting my body and my baby to come gracefully into the world in a calm and relaxed way. I was nothing short of being excited about my birthing day and so was my rock and biggest supporter – My Husband.
After Birthing my gorgeous nearly 10pd baby boy I was so passionate to share my story with anyone who would listen. I was particularly passionate about speaking with first time mums to give them a positive understanding of birth and not a view that was fear based which so many tried to do to me during my pregnancy.
I believe pregnancy is the most magical time of a womens life and should be celebrated that way. If you mind is free of negativity and you learn to nurture yourself from the inside out with healthy foods, gentle exercise and relaxation you will prepare your body and mind for this amazing journey.
I believe that growing a baby is such an important job and know how important it is that we fill our bodies with an abundance of healthy foods to nurture our babies and bodies even avoiding dangerous chemicals around our house and chemical based products on our skins as we know that these pass over to our babies in utero.
The impact we have on our little ones future starts when they are in our belly.
I would love to share with you and your birthing partner all about HypnoBirthing so you to can feel empowered & educated all about Birth so you are free of fear and are able to trust your body, your baby to enjoy this incredible & magical day no matter what turn you birth takes on the day.
Love & Light
