Caroline's Birth Story
I wanted to quickly share my birth story with you, we had a wonderful, positive and empowering experience thanks to this education.
I did the Hypnobirthing course over 4 weeks in February and March this year with Renee Bradfield in Perth, Western Australia. The information in the course was fantastic and my husband and I left feeling educated and empowered to make decisions about what we wanted for the birth of our daughter.
We were all set to have a water birth at the Family Birthing Centre, a purpose-built section of the hospital for a low-risk water birth, but Olivia was overdue and we had missed the cut-off of 41 weeks and 3 days. We prepared ourselves to give birth in the main hospital suite, without the water and were a bit disappointed to have missed out but happy to take the change in our stride.
We spent nine hours in the hospital the day before I went into labour, the doctors were pushing to induce us due to concerns about how long the...

Zoe's Birth Story
Previous birth: In 2018 I was booked to be induced at 41+2 but thankfully went into labour naturally that morning at 3am. I planned to have a drug/intervention free birth with KEMH birth centre but ended up being rushed to the main hospital ending in emergency c/s. Baby was posterior and could not get in a good position. I didn’t know about 'spinning babies' & exercises that can move bub so I didn’t progress ‘quick enough’. My waters were broken after about 16 hours. There was mec in my waters so they rushed me with bells & whistles to KEMH main hospital. The pain was in unbearable! This was so traumatic for me, being ran through a hospital on a hospital bed completely naked & losing blood everywhere! I literally wanted to die & was screaming asking for my life to end. It was such a horrible experience. Once in the main...
Dana's Birth Story
Hi! I am excited to share my birth story with you all!
My birth story
It all began last Saturday when I was induced (due to a few different reasons). I felt like I was having random on and off contractions all week and had a feeling I had started dilating.
I had the first set of gels at roughly 8.30-9.00pm, the midwife checked my cervix and could feel it hadn't dilated (so I was wrong thinking I had started dilating during the week)
After about an hour I started to get slight contractions. I couldn't sleep so I laid in bed and continued to watch the ranch while Roland got some zz.
As time went on it felt like the surges were getting stronger but I wasn't sure if it was all in my head or if it was really happening.
The midwife came back at 2am and inserted the second gels. I had only dilated 1cm. Pretty much as soon as the second gels were inserted the surges really ramped up and already felt close together.
I didn't wake Roland up and walked around the room on my own for about an hour or so as the surges became quite full on. I decided...
My name is Kate and I completed your hypnobirthing class online via zoom.
It was incredibly informative and helped both me and my husband to feel informed about our choice and calm as the birth was approaching.
We had some reduced movement leading up to the birth and turned down two requests to have an induction as we wanted to give our little babe time to come on her own.
By the 3rd time we had been in, the doctor was strongly advising that we considered an induction. We went home and emailed our hypnobirthing practitioner for advice and decided we would book the induction.
We went into hospital to get induced and after two days of trying naturally bubs wasn’t coming so it was suggested that we have a c-section. At this time I was exhausted and was overwhelmed with emotions. The midwife was amazing and helped me to calm down. I went and discussed the options with my husband and mum, my two wonderful birth partners, and we decided that we wanted what was best for bub.
