I really feel like my baby and body did all the hard work and literally all I had to do was relax and breathe

On the 28th of April at almost 35 weeks pregnant we had a wonderful surprise when we welcomed our baby girl into the world. It certainly wasn’t in the way we expected and yet given the chance I wouldn’t change a thing. I had just finished up work and was enjoying my first week on …

I didn’t realise I needed a doula until I didn’t have one at the birth of my first child

I didn’t realise I needed a doula until I didn’t have one at the birth of my first child. Although my first birth was ‘successful’ I deeply missed having an advocate and was left feeling bullied, disempowered and like I had been robbed of the beautiful experience I had heard about. Going into my second …

Hypnobirthing Australia promotes a positive birth experience while adapting to a change in circumstances

Thankyou to Deb and Pete for sharing Oliver’s birth story, which didn’t quite go to plan but with the tools and techniques they had learnt from my Hypnobirthing Australia™ classes they were able to adapt to their change in circumstances so they still had a positive birth experience and were able to avoid having drugs …

Beware of snakes stealing the show – or possibly starting labour!

I was 38+6 on Tuesday the 7th November 2017 when our wonderful midwife Linda visited in the afternoon. The previous weekend we had held a birthday party for our not-quite four-year-old, I’d had my last day of work on Monday and I had joked that once I’d sorted out the house on Tuesday baby could …

Hypnobirthing Australia has changed how I see birthing and really has empowered me as a woman

Well, baby no. 3 made his appearance and what an entry he made into the world thanks to Vicki Hobbs and Hypnobirthing Australia.  I wanted to thank you for your fear release session and to let you know how much it helped leading up to the birth and also during the intense surges. It really …

Hypnobirthing Australia classes allowed me to be more relaxed before and during labour

After quite a few weeks off work, I was getting impatient for my baby to arrive. As a first time mum, I was quite anxious and excited. Regularly listening to my Hypnobirthing Australia tracks and preparing my affirmations helped keep me calm. I was booked in for a scan at 41 weeks but the night …

As soon as I knew that I was going to have relief from the intensity, I relaxed and the urge to push began

I love this positive induction birth story I received from Anna who used her hypnobirthing techniques to help her cope with the intensity of her labour and the deviation to her birth plan. Here is her story….. I started bouncing on my fit ball, listening to my Hypnobirthing Australia tracks and practicing nipple stimulation from …

Accidental breech home birth – without fear you are so much more in control of your body

I was 36 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I’d finished work 5 days earlier and was finishing off all my “jobs” so I could have a few weeks to relax at home. On this day I was finishing painting the nursery. I was taking it slow but at 4.30pm I felt a little twinge in …

I handled the surges really well using the techniques we had been taught.

In sharing my experience, hindsight is a wonderful thing. Sebastian was born at 9.03am on the 8th September weighing 8-pound 3.5 oz. Even with the knowledge you gave us, I suppose you don’t truly know how it will be until you go through it. Next time I don’t think I’ll go private. As you warned …
