What is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing classes are a method of antenatal childbirth education that focuses on preparing parents for a more positive and calm birth. When a mother and her birth companion are able to approach their birth without fear and with knowledge, good support, and tools for the birth then their birthing can be a positive and empowering experience.

The ‘hypno’ part of ‘hypnobirthing’ refers to the hypnotherapy that you learn during our calm birthing classes, to help you release fears and condition yourself to release endorphins at times during our birth. With the help of hypnobirthing, the birth of your baby can be a more calm and relaxed experience; one where you are in the driver’s seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. This is likely to reduce the need for interventions during your birthing.

Calm Birthing Classes

Hypnobirthing is not ‘just’ about teaching you hypnosis for childbirth (although, that’s a very important part!) The Hypnobirthing Australia program uses a combination of different techniques and philosophies that have existed for many, many years. Ancient wisdom is combined with modern theory in these calm birthing classes to equip you for a peaceful birth.

Techniques that you learn through the calm birthing classes will help you achieve a deep state of relaxation, enabling your body to open up without resistance.

In this calm state, your body’s natural relaxant, endorphins, will replace the stress hormones (which can cause your uterus to constrict and create tension and pain). You will also have tools to bring yourself back into a calm state, if your birthing takes a different turn than expected, or if you have difficulties with the intensity experienced. Your birth partner will learn ways to help you throughout pregnancy and birth. This is very useful for the mother and very empowering for the birth partner.

A Positive Birth Program

When you have your baby with hypnobirthing, you will not be in a trance or a sleep.

You will actually be in a heightened state of awareness – awake, but deeply relaxed. You may look like you are asleep at times; however you will be aware of what is going on around you when you need to be. You will be calmly in tune with your body and your baby and this will assist the birth to progress.

When it feels right, you will move around and may even speak and vocalise. You will help direct the course of your own birth.

“We absolutely loved the course and are so excited to birth our baby.
It was such a good bonding experience for us as a couple to create space ourselves to talk through how we would like the birth and initial postpartum period to be.
We would highly recommend all couples to the program. Thanks again Simone!”
Hayley, Peaceful Birthing Mother


“My partner and I did the hypnobirthing course in November and loved every minute of it. From the start, Simone feels like a friend and takes away any stress and anxiety you might be having. Through her guidance and teaching, we feel so ready for our birthing experience to be more positive and peaceful. We can’t wait to bring our bub into the world thanks to Simone’s work”.

Amber, Peaceful Birthing Mother


“Simone was amazing! The course really changed my whole mindset towards birth. Prior to the course I was anxious and worried, the course helped my partner and I realise that birth can be a beautiful, calm experience. Simone gave us so many useful tools and advice. I would highly recommend this course and Simone to any couple wanting a positive, inspiring birthing experience”.
