Positive Birth Program
The Hypnobirthing Australia program is an educational process that empowers the birthing woman and her partner to experience a calm, gentle and confident path to meeting their baby. The relaxation techniques, visualisations, self-hypnosis, self-care tips and tangible tools that are given during the program will equip birthing couples to have a gentle, positive experience no matter their circumstances - hospital, birth centre or home birth. Within the program you are introduced to the techniques of self-hypnosis which will create a deeply relaxed state, and you can utilise these techniques at any stage. You are also introduced to some underpinning knowledge about your primal, instinctual abilities. The language terms that are most commonly used to describe aspects of childbirth are re-structured to more positively reflect what your body is going through. This further adds to the calming feeling, eliminating negative or fearful connotations. There are breathing techniques, acupressure as well as light massage/touch techniques.There are guided relaxation audio material, tips on healthy eating and living.
It is a complete package and a wholistic, heart-centred approach to childbirth education. Empowering choice in your care.
Forget the stereo-typical notions of hypnosis - that you are placed in a deep trance, with no control of your thoughts or actions!
All hypnosis IS self-hypnosis. This is where Hypnobirthing comes into its own, and where Hypnobirthing Australia has created a dynamic program that will, I am sure, ultimately alter the course of birthing services for women.
The Positive Birth Program is a 12 hour course and, depending on availability, can be conducted in a number of ways:
- Group Sessions
groups of between 2 to 6 couples, depending on demand.
- Private Sessions
Private one-on-one sessions with an individual couple.
- Refresher Course
This is a private course for those who have previously done
Hypnobirthing, but would like to refresh their knowledge and skills.
- Online Course
This is available for those who may not be able to attend a group session. A private 1.5hr session is available also, to consolidate the course and provide the opportunity to clarify any aspects of the program that you are unsure of.
Sessions can be structured as either:-
- Four x3 hour units, usually once a week for 4 weeks.
- Two x6 hour units, held as a full day workshop on 2 separate days one week apart.
- The refresher course is 3 hours.

A unique program to assist in the preparation for a planned caesarean birth. Remember - birth can be positive, no matter your circumstances.
