Welcome! My name is Fiona, and I am a HypnoBirthing Educator, an ACA accredited counsellor (perinatal and trauma), trained doula, and mother to 3 precious loves.
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. I facilitate intimate small group courses for those seeking a positive experience of birth. Through my classes parents are able to regain trust in their abilities to birth and to parent. I support my couples in identifying and achieving their needs and wants for birthing, while forming a deep understanding of their own needs as parents, so that they can move through this phase of life with confidence, knowledge and strength.
As well as a HypnoBirthing practitioner I am a perinatal accredited ACA Level 2 counsellor (B.Couns), working integratively from an attachment framework through therapies such as EMDR and CBT.. I work authentically with women facing difficulties within their perinatal phase of life. Combining my truth, my qualifications, and my own personal experiences, I form their safe space of connection that lights up their darkness, where they rediscover their identity and are supported in finding their way back to wholeness. I work to foster and nurture their healing, growth and relationships, both with the self and those around them, through the provision of safe, confidential, integrative individual counselling and birth debriefing sessions.
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.
Hi! I am a mother, midwife, nurse, and lactation consultant (IBCLC) with 11 years Neonatal ICU experience. I used the HypnoBirthing® program to give birth to my daughter at home in 2013
I teach small group (North Beach) and private HypnoBirthing® classes. I love teaching parents to be about every related to pregnancy, birth, and beyond. I especially love the HypnoBirthing® program because it is evidence based and relevant
Group classes are limited to 3 couples, which means you will get individual attention. Classes are held in a central and comfortable location
Private classes are held in the comfort of your home.
I can also do ‘mini-groups’ of friends or family for the regular group price
The price of the classes includes the 5 sessions, the book, and CD, as well as a ZenBand, Affirmation Cards, and goodie bag
I also provide private lactation consultant appointments, pre or post birth. A 2hr breastfeeding preparation class is also available – although the last session of the HypnoBirthing® course covers most of this information. Anyone who attends my HypnoBirthing® classes will only pay the ‘followup’ price if post birth consultations are needed
I am also a stockist for various breastfeeding and expressing products, including Spectra® breast pumps. HypnoBirthing clients will receive a 10% discount on a breast pump
Hope and Honey offer HypnoBirthing, independent antenatal classes, fertility coaching and birth pool hire in Perth, WA. Offering a range of group and private classes in the Perth Hills or in your home
“Hi, I’m Karenna. Originally from England, I now live in the Perth Hills with my husband and two gorgeous girls, Isla & Ellie. I’m incredibly passionate about the role of the mind in fertility, pregnancy and birth and love to help people prepare emotionally as well as practically for the journey ahead. I think being informed about the processes and your options helps clients feel confident, informed and empowered. That’s the best bit of my work – hearing how different and positive clients feel after, I love it!”
What one recent couple said:
“Would highly recommend any expecting parents to consider spending a few hours with Hope & Honey prior to birth.
Top 3 things about the classes:
- Being able to complete at our own home in a comfortable environment
- The knowledge and comfortable way it was explained
- Karenna’s large amount of knowledge, honesty and personal experiences“

My name is Helena Hentz. I am a mum to two gorgeous children – Noel Zizou and homebirthed Luna Aiyana. During my first pregnancy I truly discovered my interest in pregnancy, birth and parenting; I found everything so fascinating. The birth of my son Zizou in 2007 was a life changing experience. In the last months of my pregnancy I learned about Hypnobirthing, and the techniques that I gained allowed me to look forward to my birth and enjoy every moment of it. After my beautiful and calm birth experience I realised I was on the right path to find the “something” missing in my life; the “work” that I could truly love with all my heart:
I believe that knowledge, wisdom, and trust in the birth process ensures a positive experience. I want women to remember the birth of their children with joy and happy memories. I want to show them how calm giving birth can be by using relaxation techniques during birthing. I believe this is so important, especially in these times of frequent intervention and medical interference.
My initial interest has grown into a deep passion.
I believe it is a privilege to be invited to share this very personal time with couples. I feel so honoured for being invited to be a part of many hypnobirths; I have taught hypnobirthing to more than 400 couples and I have welcomed more than 200 Dreambirth babies into the world since I started my doula journey in 2010. I value the role I play in being a part of this special time on the way to parenthood.
If you think I could be the right person to share this special time of your life and would like to know more about Hypnobirthing and Baby Massage, doula services, placenta encapsulation or just have a chat about birth and babies 🙂 please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
