The story that brought me to being a HypnoBirthing Educator is simple really: The HypnoBirthing mindset and techniques helped my husband and I create two births more beautiful than we could ever have imagined. They were calm, informed and incredibly intimate experiences.
I want to spread this message of positive birth and help couples achieve a magical experience on their birthing days. I am combining my love of teaching gained through my Bachelor of Education degree and 15 year professional career (largely focused around training and communication) and taking these skills into a different space: the birth space.
I am passionate about
- helping couples write their own positive birth story, no matter what that might be. It is your journey and no one else’s.
- helping women realise the full power and incredible deign of their bodies.
- bringing the birth companion / partner into the birth space as an active participant who is involved in the birth in every way possible. You are no longer a bystander!
- the sanctity of the birth space and birth environment. Create the environment you want to birth in, no matter where that physically is.

Jo is a mother, midwife and HypnoBirthing Practitioner.
Jo attended HypnoBirthing classes when pregnant with her son in 2013, and had such an amazing birth experience that she wanted to be able to teach and empower other couples to do the same.
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.
