Hypnobirthing is a complete birth preparation course.
It helps free you from fear or negative expectation and builds trust in your incredible birthing body, helping you to remain calm, feel more in control and be more comfortable during pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Hypnobirthing combines evidence-based birth education with simple but profound techniques that help transform your outlook, inform your choices and support your journey toward the positive, empowered birth you desire and deserve.
Hypnobirthing helps you deal with the unexpected.
It is not a ‘type’ of birth, or something to ‘achieve’, but a way of being.

“My Friday mornings – in fact I’d say that actually, some aspects of my whole pregnancy – have been transformed by our precious time moving, breathing and sharing together. How has the time passed so quickly?!
I feel blessed to have benefited from your wisdom and felt such joy in our classes. The sounds of the jungle drifting into our Savasana… heaven. And the feeling of connection to you and the other mamas-to-be is so deeply appreciated – something we all need in these strange times, and even more so as we transition to motherhood. Thank you!!”
Frequently Asked Questions.
Here are some common questions about my Hypnobirthing Courses.
I’ve seen pre-recorded online courses that are much cheaper. Why should I pay more for yours?
Studies show that people learn best from people. Especially those offering ongoing support and guidance.
My courses are live, interactive and personalised, tailored to you and your needs, answer your questions in real time, give you hands-on learning experiences, and offer accountability.
Put simply? You get what you pay for, and I think you deserve the best.
Will I be hypnotised?
A common misconception about hypnobirthing is that you will be ‘out of it’, or not in control of your own actions. This simply is not true. We’ll myth-bust what hypnosis actually is (and isn’t) during the course, but essentially hypnobirthing focuses on providing all the practical tools, empowering information and supportive techniques you require in order to experience a deep state of relaxed calm through breathwork, positive affirmations and visualisations… which is good for life, and great during labour.
Do I need to attend antenatal classes as well as hypnobirthing?
No. My courses – which combine full antenatal education and positive birth preparation – will completely prepare you.
When should I commence your hypnobirthing course?
Between 25 and 29 weeks of pregnancy is a common choice. The earlier you start the course the more time you will have to absorb the information and practise the techniques. However, you will still benefit even if you start during your final weeks of pregnancy – it is never too late to contact me so we can work something out.
Do I need to have a birth partner in attendance?
Undertaking the classes alone or accompanied is a personal choice. However, I would encourage you to attend with a birth partner if this is possible, in order to practise the techniques together and support one another throughout your birthing journey.
Your birth partner can be a life partner, family member, friend or acquaintance – anyone, in fact, who you trust to support you. There is no additional fee to pay for them, of course – one fee covers you both.
What areas do you cover?
Online: the whole world!
