My name is Moran and I am a mother of 3 healthy and beautiful girls. My passion into HypnoBirthing and supporting mums through this journey through labour and birth has come from my own experiences and the influence and profound effect that the power of the mind can have on our pregnancy, birthing experience and post partum period. I have personally witnessed what a disempowering birth can do to us mentally and physically and through sheer determination, mental exercises, willingness and true profound inner strength how you can have a positive birthing experience.
I teach group and private HypnoBirthing classes and service both the Gold Coast and Brisbane area.
I also offer Doula services and have attended many births now as a doula and it is such a rewarding experience to be present for the parents that I work with in aiding them enjoy the birth experience which will leave an imprint for a lifetime. I work in births in any setting and all circumstances, from home birth, birthing centre to hospital births and have witnessed the most AMAZING births imaginable.
I am a true believer that “when you change the way you think about birth, the way you birth will change’ ~ Marie Mongan

“Moran was truly an amazing support to us during the preparation before birthing our first child and a loving and experienced guide to all things gentle birthing which we are extremely grateful for. We highly recommend others who intend on giving birth naturally to complete the HypnoBirthing course with Moran. Her calm nature allowed us to feel totally at ease throughout the course and she really did provide for us all that we could have ever hoped for from a doula. Thank you Moran!”

“I knew how preparation and knowledge were key to a positive pregnancy, birth experience and the time after birth. This is why my husband and I decided to take Hypnobirthing classes and have the support of a doula on the birthing day of our first child. Our child was born on January 3rd 2015. We were blessed with the most positive birth we could have ever dreamt of. It was absolutely perfect, in every single way. The loving and respectful prenatal preparation provided by our doula also gave us the foundations for a healthy, positive and happy time after our child’s birth. Simply and truly, I can say that, since the last month of pregnancy, my husband and I have been having the best time of our life. To our precious Hypnobirthing practitioner, doula, and birth companion, we have no other words other than a wholehearted…. Thank You Moran Liviani.”

“To Moran our amazing doula, you helped make our birthing experience a positive memory. Through your support and education in the HypnoBirthing classes before the birth we were able to apply it to the birth of our beautiful Nausica and learn more about ourselves. We are truly thankful and grateful for your support during the birth. My birth didn’t go according to plan as I developed pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome but you helped me get through it as calmly as I could which resulted in my quick recovery in hospital and a healthy baby girl. It was all the little things that got me through like your words of encouragement and positivity, massages, speaking with the midwives, being able to give Llan a rest, and that every decision I had to make was the right one no matter what I chose. You will always be a special part of our lives as you helped bring our precious Nausica into the world. Thank you for being our doula, you are an inspiration and I hope more parents get to experience a positive birth in all circumstances.

“Could not recommend Moran highly enough for both HynpoBirthing classes and placenta encapsulation. She is such a warm, genuine person who made both myself and my husband more confident in our birthing journey by providing excellent knowledge, insight and tips.
Thank you Moran,

“What an amazing experience my hubby and I had doing HypnoBirthing classes leading up to the birth of our son. Having had 2 previous caesareans, our decision to go a natural birth 3rd time around was not taken lightly. We were very apprehensive, that is, until we started our Hypno birthing journey with Moran. She taught us not to fear natural birth and that it should not be a medical procedure to birth your baby. She gave us the tools and knowledge to make our own informed decisions on how we brought our son into the world in a hospital environment. Without her we most certainly would not have achieved the natural drug free birth we so desperately wanted and achieved.
Thanks so much Moran. We couldn’t of done it without you!!”

“Doing the HypnoBirthing course with Moran was the best thing we did throughout my whole pregnancy. I had been quite anxious leading up to the birth of my first baby and was looking for a way to help ease my nerves when I came across HypnoBirthing. Moran made us feel completely at ease from the very first moment we met her and her passion and excitement for the process of HypnoBirthing was infectious. The course gave my birth partners and myself the confidence to enter into my birthing journey feeling informed and empowered. Not only did the meditations help me to keep calm and focused during labour but it also helped me to bond on a deeper level with my baby during my pregnancy. Moran helped give me the courage and the support to have a natural drug free and positive birth experience. I am forever grateful for crossing paths with her and for doing the HypnoBirthing course. I think it’s an absolute must for all soon to be parents.”

We would just like to let you know that we had a beautiful baby girl, Aurelia on Thursday afternoon.
The labour was amazing and the skills that you were able to pass onto us were just incredible and invaluable to our birthing experience. Whilst things didn’t quite go to plan, we did end up having a natural birth with no pain relief and I know I felt so calm throughout the whole experience and really could just trust my body to do what it needed to (can’t say the same for Adam haha, but he was an amazing birth partner, and the skills he learnt during the course definitely helped me immensely).
So a big, big thank you to you and all of your advice, words cannot express how truly thankful we all are. Aurelia is such a beautiful calm little one and we just couldn’t be happier!”
I specialise in HypnoBirthing® classes because I used the techniques for both my births and I came out of those experiences in full goddess mode – strong, capable and whole. These are the things I want every woman to take away from her birth experience. I give you a toolbox for labour and birth, natural pain management, hospital systems and help create a beautiful family bond from conception.
I have been a midwife for 10years and am still very active in my local hospital, currently working between the ward and birth suite. I am involved with a number of home birth midwives as well providing support and constantly learning where able. I am a mum of 3 little boys and it was their births that reinforced the need for education and preparation for birth in pregnancy, not only physically but mentally and emotionally. I have been a private educator for a number of years now and love the connections and beautiful results I get working with families.
How I work with parents
I help parents take back their birth, understanding how their body works, how to assist rather than resist their natural processes. I involved partners and educate them how to be an awesome support not just an occasional help. I provide you with the skills to take control and responsibility for yourself, your baby and your birth.

Trish always remembered being fascinated by babies and how they came into the world and so was really excited on first becoming pregnant in 1999 and then again in 2001. Unfortunately, both of these births were not what she had envisaged. During her third pregnancy she discovered HypnoBirthing® and the benefits of having a Doula by her side. This time she laboured and birthed easily and calmly and this made her realise that birth can be the way she had always thought it was meant to be.
This experience led her to change the direction of her life and in 2006 she became a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner. Since then Trish has enjoyed working with families as they bring their children into the world. The use of hypnosis during the HypnoBirthing® classes also intrigued Trish and she became fascinated with the untapped potential of the subconscious mind. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist she can assist HypnoBirthing® families with issues that are outside the scope of the classroom setting. This broadens the scope of her practice to include a larger range of issues. Hypnotherapy commonly helps alleviate anxiety, stress, addictions, depression, and PTSD. It can assist with weight reduction, improving self confidence and infertility as well as many other issues.
Trish has always provided a good sounding board, listening with a compassionate ear and wanting to help people solve their life’s challenges. Her genuine desire to connect with people needing support, underpins her skill set and she is often told that her calming manner and comforting voice offer reassurance to the wonderful people she has worked with over the years.
Trish says…“I look forward to being by your side as your Hypnotherapist should you need support with life’s challenges…or as your HypnoBirthing® Practitioner for when you are pregnant and choose a birth free of fear…or as your Doula for when you decide that you need hands on emotional support during birth…or maybe all three! Thank you.”
