Hello to all you beautiful birthing couples.
My name is Brooke, founder and director of Birth your way HypnoBirthing and I am passionate about all things birth. After HypnoBirthing® our son Oliver, my desire to provide other birthing couples with the knowledge to achieve an empowered, informed and calm birth were truly ignited.
I have a wonderfully supportive husband whom is also a massive advocate for woman and family centered birth.
I am a Birth Story Listener. This enables me to work with mums, dads and birth professionals to help find “new meaning” to a traumatic birth experience.
I feel extremely blessed and privileged to work with the amazing mums and dads, who I welcome with open arms through the Birth your way HypnoBirthing doors.
Rowena works with Fleur & Erin
We are 3 Bayside registered Midwives who come together with a strong background of childbirth education and love for our work with women and their families. A combined 46 years of Midwifery experience and 8 beautiful children between us (so far) we share the strong belief that all women should be given the opportunity to have a positive and safe birthing experience.
We know that sometimes the journey can take a different turn – that’s ok. We have each had our own very different birthing experiences to draw on: vaginal breech, emergency Caesarean, normal births after caesareans, water births, home birth and almost didn’t make it to hospital births. Each of these births were equally special and powerful – and a gift to learn from.
We absolutely know, from witnessing hundreds of births, that the knowledge of how truly remarkable our bodies are is so powerful. As is the ability to embrace all the incredible interconnecting systems that contribute to birth. We will empower you to birth without fear – working with your body’s innate abilities – not against them. We will guide you to fully embrace your Birthing Instincts.
“There is a secret in our culture and it’s not that birth is painful but that women are strong,” Laura Stavoe.

Dr Julie Phillips-Moore
(Clinical Hypnotherapist & Naturopath)
Ph.D., Master Behavioural Health Science (Distinction), B.A.(Psych.), Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy, ND.
Julie works in the area of health psychology which is a holistic approach that focuses on how all facets of your life have an impact on both your physical and mental health. Psychological studies show that the mind and body have a strong bi-directional link. As mental health declines, physical health can wear down; and if physical health declines, it can make a person feel mentally and emotionally, “down.”
She treats a wide range of health issues by combining hypnotherapy, naturopathy (which includes homoeopathy and Bach flower remedies), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and nutrition.
Some of the conditions treated are:
- stress-related illnesses
- anxiety (incl. performance anxiety)
- sleep disorders
- mental and adrenal fatigue
- high blood pressure
- eating disorders
- digestive imbalances
Unexpressed emotions such as anguish, guilt or shame often felt after a termination, or sadness or grief after a miscarriage, can create extreme emotional conflict which affects every cell of the body and can cause or compound reproductive problems.
This mind-body programme reduces stress and increases confidence, instilling a sense of control which maximises chances of conceiving naturally and increases the success of medical assistance such as IVF.
Julie obtained her degree in Psychology, her Masters Degree in Behavioural Health Science (Distinction), and her Ph.D in the field of psychoneuroimmunology from the University of Sydney. She has lectured at the university in the Faculty of Health Sciences as a staff member and also as a guest lecturer in complementary medicine.
- Diploma of Counselling
