Trainer for this Event: Trish Cumming
CH.t, HBCE, Doula
Trish is a HypnoBirthing Educator and Steering Committee in Australia for the HypnoBirthing Institute and has been teaching HypnoBirthing since 2007. She has been teaching HypnoBirthing in Brisbane since 2011. Prior to that she was teaching in Malaysia and South Korea.
Trish always wanted to be a mum and it never crossed her mind that birth could be anything other than a normal, natural process. Unfortunately armed with very little prenatal education and unaware of routine hospital practices she experienced birth in a very ugly manner.
Falling pregnant with her third child she realised that things had to be different and so to they were. She armed herself with everything that had been missed the first two times around. Upon learning HypnoBirthing and utilising all she had learnt about labour, birth and the impact of fear upon a woman in labour, Trish went on to have a truly amazing birth experience. It really was the most transformative experience of her life.
After her third birth Trish realised that HypnoBirthing was something that had to be shared with as many birthing couples as possible and so became a Certified Practitioner in 2007. Whilst living overseas Trish was instrumental in establishing a HypnoBirthing presence in both South Korea and Malaysia. Having introduced HypnoBirthing to South Korea, Trish became heavily involved with the natural birthing community and was fortunate enough to see the establishment of the very first Natural Birthing Clinic through her relationship with a well-known Obstetrician.
Since then Trish has gone onto become a Certified Childbirth Doula, Clinical Hypnotherapist and is now an active member of the HypnoBirthing Steering Committee.
Trish now works from her private clinic in The Gap and teaches group classes in Ashgrove. In between her work as a Doula, supporting the Brisbane Educators she is studying to be a yoga teacher and enjoys time with her family, trekking and reading anything and everything about birth.
