FREE COURSE PREVIEW & PREGNANCY RELAXATION MP3

It empowered me to make decisions and decline interventions I didn't think was necessary

I just wanted to share my experience with Hypnobirthing Australia. THANK YOU!!

I gave birth 3.5 months ago in the middle of the pandemic. We had planned a homebirth due to fear COVID-19 and at the time- not knowing how the virus was going to affect the hospital system in Australia. At 37 weeks - we made the decision to home birth with our group practice midwives. This was my second pregnancy. My first birth was through private obstetrics which failed us. A stressful delivery, no birth confidence which concluded in a NICU baby due to infant stress (meconium aspiration), and a domino effect of medical intervention including an epidural. This first birth left me with birth trauma, which impacted breastfeeding, and resulted in post-natal depression.


My second pregnancy I was determined to have a completely different experience. And opted to have give birth through a group practice midwifery. At 37 weeks, I started the hypnobirthing course, as I had decided to home birth and knew I...

I was bearing down and I started to do what I felt was right and when I needed to push.

I had a stretch and sweep performed by my midwife on Tuesday (day before he was born at 41+3). As expected, I was experiencing some period type dull cramps that entire day. By 11pm I was feeling something a lot stronger. They were about 2 minutes apart but nothing too intense. I called my midwife and she said considering I am still able to talk through them she would like me to wait until they are a lot more intense. During these early labour surges I felt as though I needed to poop and vomit and the same time so I spent most of my time on the toilet. I ended up going back to bed around 3am and that’s when my surges completely slowed down to an inconsistent 7-12 minutes apart lasting about 45 seconds which allowed me to rest until about 5.30am.

I continued to labour leaning over...

I was around 35weeks when I bought your course online and I loved it.

Hi Melissa, thank you for your nice email. I wrote my birth story for you. It was an amazing experience and I thank you so much  

Our second daughter Luna was born 24/6/2020 with her 3430g and 53cm.

My daughter was already overdue so I was trying to help her out a little. I was walking a lot, bouncing on the ball, having hot baths and sex. I was really relaxed the whole pregnancy and I wasn’t scared at all, I was looking forward to meeting our baby girl. When I was around 35weeks I bought your course online and I loved it. I did all of it but especially visualisations and breathing techniques made a huge difference! Thank you. I was also relaxed with the birth of my first daughter but I didn’t breathe, I hold my breath and wrinkle my face and waiting for the end of the wave. Also, I was just laying in the bed and waiting for end. That’s why my first birth took 28hours. At that time I had no idea why breathing is so important. 

Anyway, I had a positive...

Hi Melissa,

Wow! I’m so glad you loved my story as much as I do!! Thank you so much
Fear crept in for a minute when the obstetrician was trying to push for a c-section, but I’m so grateful that I had the tools to switch my mindset quickly and have the AMAZING birth I had visualised

I would be honoured for you to share my story and I’m happy for you to use my name. 

Thank you for keeping me on a high with this beautiful message
