This course has helped my husband and I so much in our preparation for the birth of our first child! The knowledge and skills we’ve learnt have helped us plan for the type of birth we really want- gentle and calm. Each session has left us feeling more and more empowered and excited to start this new journey as parents. Sandie has been absolutely amazing- always so knowledgeable, positive and supportive. She is so passionate about positive birth and parenting and makes you feel so comfortable and at ease! If you want a course that brings you and your partner closer as well as helps you prepare for a calm, positive birth I cannot recommend Sandie and Essential HypnoBirthing enough!

Sandie is Amazing!!
If you have ANY fears or negative thoughts relating to labour, giving birth or even just becoming a parent then you will be thankful you met Sandie and let her become apart of your pregnancy journey!!
I like many woman had a massive fear of giving birth!! Being a hairdresser and hearing lots of negative stories i wasnt quiet sure if i could or wanted to give birth. But after doing our hypnobirthing classes with Sandie that all changed.
Not only for me but my husband too and also in our relationship with each other and our baby!! It was very special and i would recommend anyone who has any fears or just want some more information relating to giving birth calmly and having control of your labour then you must get in contact with Sandie today and book your classes now!!
I cannot thank her enough and know that with 100% certainty that my experience wouldnt have been the empowering one that it was without her support, knowledge and her classes.

My interest in infant feeding developed after the birth of my first baby in 2001. I realised that even though I was an RN my knowledge of how breastfeeding worked was very limited. So I developed a strong desire to assist mothers to have access to up to date evidence-based information on infant feeding. I volunteered with the ABA and became a Breastfeeding Counsellor and then worked towards becoming an IBCLC (qualified in 2010). Since then I have worked as a Lactation Consultant in a maternity hospital, in my own Lactation clinic with a GP/IBCLC colleague, and in my own Private Practice.
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 started my HypnoBirthing journey 9 years ago with the birth of my first child. Since then, I’ve educated and mentored many couples and mums who’ve attended my wide range of classes. All three of my children were HypnoBirthed babies (not so baby now!), who are 8, 6 and 2 years old.

Mel is a HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator, certified with the HypnoBirthing® Institute. She is a mother of 3 and is dedicated to teaching the HypnoBirthing® Philosophy and Techniques to women and their partners, so that their birth journey can be a calm, peaceful and empowered experience.
I have been teaching HypnoBirthing in Townsville since 2013 and am employed on a casual basis by James Cook University as a guest lecturer to teach HypnoBirthing to their Graduate Diploma of Midwifery students.
I became a HypnoBirthing practitioner because I have experienced the brilliance of my own body birthing naturally and easily twice, even though I didnt know about HypnoBirthing then, but I did know my body is perfectly designed to have a baby and I didnt know there could be any other way. I have become increasinly concerned that my experience is not the current “norm” and I am concerned too about the role of the Birth Companion – often the father – who is left out at his own baby’s birth, like a wall flower, hovering and feeling confused. And this in particular is what drew me to HypnoBirthing as it is a program for couples to prepare for and birth their new baby/babies together as a team in a celebration of life.
It has been my privilege to have assisted over 40 couples birth their babies here in Townsville – many were first time parents, others second time, some were VBAC’s. Some have been nurses and midwives. Couples have come from all walks of life, including army, scientists, medical practitioners, managers, retail assistants, dentists, massage therapists, cleaners, builders, mechanics, panel beaters, miners, all sorts. Sometimes a mum and daughter attend, sometimes mum, daughter and partner attend, or a friend, or a student midwife, same sex couples as well as husbands and wives – Birth Companions can be anyone you choose to assist you with your birth.
Please feel most welcome to contact me, I am happy to help with questions, concerns , and it is my belief there is nothing that cannot be worked out as a win win for all.

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.”

My Midwives Brisbane North is unique as it is one of the very few private midwifery practices in Brisbane. The midwives now have birth access to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, The Gold Coast Hospital and Ipswich Hospital. This step is very significant for women as it means you now can be admitted to hospital and still continue to receive care from a midwife they you have employed rather than someone allocated to provide your care. The model of care means that women can have birth care from their own midwife, have obstetricians and other medical staff available and can receive Medicare rebates for care. The midwives have direct access to the Birth Center at The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital- this means no ballets or waiting lists!
We offer a range of Midwifery Services including continuity of midwifery care, antenatal and postnatal care, education services.
- Free pregnancy testing
- Bulk billed visit explaining your options and choices in pregnancy
- Referral for blood testing and ultrasound testing
- Prescribing of medications as required
- Continued care with a known midwife through the pregnancy, birth and post birth
- Shared care with your GP or other practitioner (if they agree)
- Group pregnancy education
- Antenatal classes
- Early parenting education
- Referral to other health professionals as required
- Medicare rebates available
- Deluxe Postnatal packages available
- Group Sessions
Updates can be found on the My Midwives Brisbane North Facebook page.
