We had the amazing support of a private midwife Meredith who was also our private midwife for Evelyn. I had a beautiful healthy pregnancy with no complications all the way through.
I decided to do hypnobirthing this pregnancy as I found myself a little apprehensive about giving birth again even though I had a beautiful birth the first time - it was a very long exhausting 18 hour labour and I really didn’t have the mindset or breathing techniques to ride my surges.
Hypnobirthing was honestly amazing and I would highly recommend it to any mothers who are pregnant. I learnt so much more about my body and the relaxation and breathing techniques are priceless and helped me so much in the lead up to birth and also during my labour and birth.
We had planned to have Jack at the Royal Brisbane hospital again in the private birth...

From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to research and educate myself and my husband as best as possible on my birth preferences and rights as a birthing woman. I always wanted a calm and safe birth with minimal to no medical intervention if possible.
I purchased the Hypnobirthing Australia online course at around 28 weeks pregnant, as I live in Melbourne and was unable to have face to face classes due to Covid-19 restrictions. The online program was so well set out and easy to follow. Melissa’s classes helped me to feel so informed and educated for my birth and the team of midwives at the hospital knew about Hypnobirthing and supported me in all of my decisions!
My waters broke at 6:30pm on a Thursday night and my husband and I did our best to just stay...
