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.
My training & experience
HypnoBirthing International Educator – 3years
Mum – 7 years
Numerous additional qualifications in
SIDs safe sleeping
Newborn first aid
Breastfeeding support and assistance
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.
A very warm welcome to you!
Meet me, I am Brooke. I offer a range of holistic services including Hypnobirthing Education, Kinesiology & Birth Story Medicine.

Of course it was born along with my son where I learnt that all pregnancy & birth journeys are unique & deserve to be respected & nurtured as such.
I am passionate about you & your journey. Pregnancy & birth can be a challenging time for many couples with mixed emotions but it can also be an incredible time for TRANSFORMATION, EMPOWERMENT & GROWTH.
All of this… is led by you & only you hold the key. Isn’t that the BEST?!
Be free of fear, be in the drivers seat, let go of expectations & prepare yourselves for a more informed birthing adventure, whatever that may look like… because the best is yet to come.

A little about me:
Hi, Im Bianca, I have a baby, toddler and man child. I’m also studying a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine. I’m passionate about women’s health especially support with fertility, pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
Not only do I talk the talk but I’ve walked it too, our first baby was IVF and I went thru all the struggles that come with infertility and loss, once the bun was finally in the oven I was terrified of giving birth! I knew the only way was through so I got prepared, mentally and physically. I then became excited.
Both my births were free from drugs and interventions, they were empowering and beautiful, the proudest moments of my life. It breaks my heart knowing women suffer through birth, that they get mistreated and experience trauma which goes on to impact their lives in a negative way. Birth is not only about birthing our babies but it’s also about the rebirth of us as mamas. Through teaching HypnoBirthing and adding in my little gems of wisdom, I will guide you back to your innate ability to give birth without fear. HypnoBirthing & having a Doula is not some hippy trippy BS, it’s evidence based education supporting mind, body and spirit whichever way your birthing journey takes you.
I love wine, coffee and people watching. I listen to punk & golden oldies music, our date nights are usually getting out to a concert, I have a twin sister and grew up on the Gold Coast. I’m a Sagittarius, I enjoy a good conspiracy theory and have a dry/dark sense of humour. I like to think I am kind but am fiercely protective of my family. I’m happy to go against the grain and stick up for what I believe in… and that’s how ‘league of her own’ came about, it’s a way of marching to the beat of your own drum and doing what’s best for you; that you feel deep down inside. Not comparing yourself to others and not following blindly without discerning for yourself. Im here to awaken your inner flame and remind you of who the eff you are!
Thanks for stopping by… You’ve got this mama. B x

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 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
