What’s the biggest lesson birth taught you?

Birth teaches us lessons regardless of how your birth goes.

For hypnobirthing parents the lessons they learn about birth are often overwhelmingly positive.

They learn to believe in themselves,  that with the right preparation and support birth can be a wonderful experience.

Listen here to some of my mums and dads telling you what the biggest lesson was that they learn from birth…

What was your hypno-birth like?

So I’m sure you may be wondering, what IS birth like when you use hypnobirthing to prepare?

From my own personal experience (3 babies in 33 months – I think I became a little bit addicted to birth I loved it that much!) I can tell you it is:

  • an amazing experience
  • intense and needs you to work with it
  • powerful but rewarding
  • calm
  • about making informed choices
  • a bonding experience for you and your partner

But I’m sure you’d like to hear from some of my clients too and how they view birth…

How did you use the course to prepare for birth?

Doing a Hypnobirthing Australia course with me is just the start of your birthing preparation.

It provides you with the knowledge, tools and techniques to prepare for birth but then it is important that you then take these and incorporate them into daily life to continue the preparation for your baby’s birth.

Here are the ways some of my clients have used the course to get ready to meet their baby….

How do clients feel about birth BEFORE doing the course?

Mums and dads attend my courses for a variety of reasons, you might recognise yourself and your reasons for doing hypnobirthing in here too….

  • feeling anxious or scared about birth
  • heard ‘horror stories’ about childbirth from other people and want something different
  • want to know how to stay calm and relaxed during birth
  • wanting an informed and empowered birth
  • to gain the knowledge and skills to have a positive birth
  • so that your partner knows what to do and say to help support you during birth
  • because they are excited about birth and want to know how to have the best birth possible!

Here is a short video with some of my hypnobirthing mums and dads telling you how they felt about birth before doing the Hypnobirthing Australia program with me….

I have had the most wonderful mums and dads attend my courses over the years.

Acupressure for pregnancy, birth and labour with Kate Levett

My colleague Kate Levett and I sat down recently to chat about the use of acupressure for pregnancy, labour and birth.

We only touched the tip of the iceberg about how acupressure can be beneficial for pregnancy birth covering topics such as pain relief, positioning of the baby, induction and morning sickness.

We ended up chatting for longer than planned, but grab a drink and sit back for this video lasting approx. 30 mins…

If you’d like to know more about the hypnobirthing courses I run head to:

This was nothing like my two other births… it was a completely different experience. I’m so proud of myself!

Veronique and Brad came to do a course with me for the birth of their third child. Their first two births had been “long and very, very painful” and they had followed their midwives advice to come and do a course with me.

They were birthing at St George Hospital in Sydney under the midwifery team and with Veronique’s sister Courtney (also a midwife) as a support person.

Veronique was really hoping to have a drug-free water-birth but also needed to get past some doubts about if she could achieve this….which she very much did (her amazing birth video is at the end of this post!!!)

Rabab’s birth and how hypnobirthing + doula support helped her birth her baby boy!

I have two videos to share with you here…

The first is from first-time mum and trainee doctor Rabab who did the hypnobirthing course with husband Mo and me privately at around 30 weeks. Rabab was recommended the course by her Doula Ellen. In the second video below we chat together about how hypnobirthing and doula support are a great combination!

Apologies in advance for the sound quality (the neighbours were renovating during this filming so at times there is a little noise/I needed to stop for a moment to keep muting myself), but you’ll still be able to take away what a wonderfully empowering birth Rabab had for her baby boy Zach.

This is a tale of a trainee doctor starting off being terrified of birth and viewing it in a very medical way, to hiring a doula, changing care-providers,  doing a hypnobirthing course and ultimately having a wonderful birth! She took ownership for her birth and opened up to the idea that birth is a normal, physiological event that she is no longer scared of!

The birth of baby Zach:

The first 1000 days program

In this video I have been joined by Emma Park nutritionist who is discussing the program she recently developed called ” The first 1000 days”. This program talks about the importance of health from conception to the age of 2 and delves into a whole host of relevant evidence based topics.

Here is a quick overview of what is included in the program – interesting for both professionals and mothers…
