Empowering techniques for a
positive birthing experience.

Hypnobirthing Australia ™

Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioners, alongside our online courses and face to face programs support you in your preparation to achieve a positive birth, no matter what that looks like and feels like for you. 


Each birth is unique and individual preferences are needed. Gain the knowledge to understand what a positive birth means to you. You will feel educated and informed about how to create and maintain a positive mindset during pregnancy, labour and birth. You will be equiped with labour and birth tools and you will feel empowered in the lead up to your birth experience. Your birth partner will play an active role in support and advocacy for the birth you deserve. 

“Empowering soon-to-be mothers to release fear and achieve a beautiful birthing experience
through peaceful Hypnobirthing techniques”. 

Through the Positive Birth Program you learn and experience:

  • Evidence based knowledge about birth, common interventions and procedures. Learn how to use labour and birth tools and techniques, support and what that should feel and look like with your birth partner and care provider.
  • The power of language and affirmations to empower your mind and body for birth, understanding the birth process, hormones, fear surrounding birth, the role of caregivers in your birth and the way our brain is wired for birth.
  • During the Positive Birth Program your birth partner and you watch a variety of positive birth videos, set in each birthing facility including home birth,  the videos show you the tools and techniques you will learn in practice, and how your birth partner plays an integral role.
