My Birth Really Was Magical All Thanks To Hyponobirthing!

big baby natural birth Jul 12, 2019

Introducing our third babe, Rio, born 5 days before his guess date weighing 4.14kg or 9 pounds 2 ounces. 

I was induced with our first two babies, both ending up with an epidural and the first resulting in a PPH and subsequent issues with feeding. With number 3, I was adamant I did not want to be induced, wanting to experience spontaneous labour however knew that my OB would most likely push for early induction considering I have largish babies. Fast forward to 36 weeks, I was sent for a growth scan after consistently measuring 4 weeks ahead and as suspected, my ob wanted to induce at 38 weeks. Everything I learnt in the hypnobubs course kicked in at this point, I felt empowered, I trusted my body and I stuck to my guns by turning down the induction. I am so glad I did as I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect birth. 


Surges started at 10.30pm, Christmas night. At first, they were about 18 mins apart and very mild so I stayed in bed to try to get some...

My birth went unexpectedly but it was beautiful

caesarean Apr 01, 2019
Thank you for the Hypnobubs™ Online Course. I have always been terrible with pain and would not self describe as 'heroic'. I had many reservations about having a cesarean and feared the recovery process. We completed the course online, which was great as we needed module flexibly due to work schedules.
We had a beautiful home birth planned, and like many people ended up with our baby coming out the way she wanted instead.  I went into active labour around 7.30am after a night of early labour surges. The midwives came to the home after lunch and I was able to get in the pool. I transitioned some time in the early evening.
During labour and pushing, I had strong lower back discomfort. After a few hours of pushing the baby was still not progressing as far down as we would have liked. We did an internal and confirmed I was fully dilated. Unfortunately, her head had not turned and she was posterior. We tried pushing her the right way but she stayed put. It was at...

My Amazing, LIFE CHANGING, Hypnobirth Story

home birth natural birth Apr 01, 2019
I am so excited to share my beautiful birth story with you and some photos of my birth of Flynn

After an anxiety-filled first pregnancy and a frightening, fast and stressful first birth, I decided to look into hypnobirthing for my second. What I found was more than I could have ever imagined. My hypnobirthing pregnancy was calm and positive as I practiced my affirmations and techniques. I fell asleep every night listening to the

relaxation tracks and felt joyful, positive and excited about my upcoming birth. My hypnobirth was so beautiful that 5 minutes after our hypnobub was born, I said to my husband " I want to do that AGAIN!". My two births could not have been more different and I am so grateful that I found hypnobirthing. Here is my story,

On the evening of my due date, I felt some mild sensations within and a little irritable as I put my two year old to bed....

How the Hypnobubs Online Course helped me to overcome birth trauma!

Uncategorized Apr 01, 2019

Hi Melissa,

I just wanted to say thank you. Your Online Hypnobubs hypnobirthing program has changed my life in less than 3 weeks!

I’m currently still pregnant but have started your online program. I’ve been dealing with birth trauma from my first baby since Oct 2016. I would wake at night with tears running down my face from the dreams I would have about it etc. I have been petrified of my upcoming second birth... and now I’m not, at all.

I thought the program may be a little too ’hippie dippie’ for me but I’ve thrown myself into it and it’s fantastic. I knew I had to do something to move on from my last birth. Your program was my answer and it’s the best! I’m not afraid, no matter what happens during this birth. I feel strong, brave and empowered.

I’ve been listening to the tracks every night and watching the videos with my husband when we can. The flexibility of the program is fantastic.

I’m so passionate about your...

What is the difference between Hypnobubs® and other hypnobirthing programs (such as the Mongan Method)?

Uncategorized Mar 24, 2019

We are often asked about the differences between the hypnobubs® hypnobirthing online course and other hypnobirthing courses. So, let's bust some of the myths and provide some clarity! :)

Firstly, 'hypnobirthing' is a descriptive word that is used to identify the use of hypnotherapy with childbirth. Anyone can use the word 'hypnobirthing' or 'hypnobirth' or 'hypno-birthing' to describe what they do. There are many different types of 'hypnobirthing' programs/courses/tracks available throughout the world. A selection of these hypnobirthing courses incorporate 'childbirth education' and others just cover the use of hypnotherapy for pregnancy and birth.

Some of the world's most popular hypnobirthing courses (that also provide a childbirth education focus) are hypnobubs®, Wise Hippo Program, Hypnobirthing Association (UK) and HypnoBirthing - the Mongan Method. In addition to these there are also programs such as Calmbirth and Hypnobabies who don't...

Our birth was an absolutely amazing experience!

Uncategorized Jan 31, 2019

Firstly I wanted to say thank you for the amazing online course. We had a beautiful calm first birth completely natural. We couldn’t of asked for a better experience.

Honestly, I can’t rave enough about your course and our experience. Even the midwives asked if they could book in for my future birth. Haha. They were blown away and even kept my door sign that I made for other hypnobirthing mums that come to the hospital.

Our birth was an absolutely amazing experience and my husband was incredible.

Thank you so much.

My AMAZING Induced Labour and Birth Story

Uncategorized Jan 31, 2019

I really just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your online course.

I successfully hypnobirthed both of my babies, the first was a 55-hour labour drug and pain-free and my second on Monday where I was induced via the drip. I had heard some truly scary labour stories about births that used the drip and if it hadn’t been for your course I could have been one of those “horror” stories. My doctor had never heard of hypnobirthing and was sceptical as was his student doctor that was present for the birth.

My labour time in total was 4.5 hours with an hour of that pushing my posterior baby out. I went from 2cm to 10 cm in 2 hours with strong regular surges and both the midwives and doctors were amazed at how calm I was and how quickly and easily things progressed.

I remember whispering “I’m going to start pushing in a minute”as I felt my body transitioning and the midwives found it great! As did my hubby as he had a moment to prepare...

I recommend the Hypnobubs™ Online Course to everyone!

natural birth Jan 17, 2019
Hi Melissa! 
I completed the Hypnobubs™ online course and wanted to share our birth story. 
My birth was a straight forward and positive birth, which I attribute to all the positive affirmations I've was practising in the lead-up. 
On Friday night before going to bed, I had some niggles, enough to make me uncomfortable, so I stayed up and tried to distract myself with some TV. I let my hubby sleep and did not disturb him (who knew how long it was going to take). In the middle of the night, the surges intensified, and I decided it was time to start listening to some tracks and get in the shower. Stayed in the shower until the hot water run out :P 
I woke hubby up at 4 am, and continued to labour at home, getting in and out of the shower, finding a comfortable position on the bed, listening to my tracks and music, and having some naps in between. My waters broke at home and it was time to get to the hospital. Got to the...

"My anxiety was the reason for a planned cesarean and your mp3s got me through" Adelle

Uncategorized Nov 22, 2018
I purchased your online c-section course and my husband and I spent many hours reading books and attending other classes on hypnobirthing this year in preparation for the birth of our first child.
I listened to your relaxation mp3s every day, multiple times a day towards the end of my pregnancy. My anxiety was the reason for a planned cesarean and your mp3s got me through the procedure. I don't know what I would have done without them. What's more is I had complications 3 days post cesarean and had to have an emergency surgery on my bowel. I ended up losing part of my bowel and now have a Stoma for 6 months.
It took 3 weeks of recovery in hospital and my husband, baby and I listened to Butterfly Garden all the time to calm ourselves and cope with the stress we were all under. I can't tell you the difference it made to listen to it whilst having staples removed (all 64 of them), while I was struggling as a new mum that couldn't hold her on baby etc.

A beautiful birth story from a Dad's point of view.

Uncategorized Oct 18, 2018

On the 18th August, our little girl arrived.

Mum had been diagnosed with preeclampsia and cholestasis. So bub was induced by our very gentle Naprotechnology obstetrician.

7 hours of active labour later, little miss arrived, without crying, busily looking around herself, staring at mum and dad, and then feeding! She had her priorities!

We used the hypnobubs audio tracks through labour, and a TENS labour machine and Gas for pain relief, much to the Midwife's surprise, as she said most people cannot cope with induction without an Epidural.

We also had a professional Doula with us, which helped a lot.

The delivery ended up being Vacuum Extraction, but Obs was so gentle, bub had no bruise on the head, and mum had no tears and no cuts, no stitches.

We were very happy we found Melissa Spilsteds course, thank you Hypnobubs, we couldn't have had such a peaceful medical birth otherwise.
