Hello! My name is Andi Stringer, and I am a mother of two living in the beautiful region of Marlborough. New Zealand. I am a Certified Hypnobirthing Practitioner and Yoga teacher. I am passionate about holding space for woman through pregnancy, birth and into motherhood. I have a degree in Occupational Therapy and bring this holistic approach to wellbeing with me through all avenues of life.
My passion for pregnancy and childbirth came about after the birth of my first child. Her birth was the turning point in my life, after my experience, I wanted to make it my goal to hold space for other women and help them in their own journey, to discover their strength and inner calm that we all have within us. I wholeheartedly believe that I had such beautiful birthing experiences for both my children because of the essential role hypnobirthing played. Although I am passionate about physiological birth, I teach the Positive Birth Program in a realistic way, which prepares women and partners for any turn that birth can take.
I am so honored that I get to share Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth Program with women and their birthing partners. Pregnancy, birth and motherhood are incredibly sacred, intimate and transformative rites of passage. It’s a time that deserves devotion and embrace like no other. It is my passion to support you to be all that you are, however you envisage your birth to be, wherever you are on your journey.

Empowering my clients to experience a calm and positive birthing experience is a dream come true. Birth can and should be an experience you will always want to remember.
My intention is to support and inspire women and their birth partners to achieve positive, sacred and empowered childbirth experiences. Every woman deserves to birth her baby with fearlessness, harmony and courage which naturally exist deep within her.
For most of our lives, women have been surrounded by negative birth stories. Pain, fears and horrors are drilled into our subconscious mind bringing just that into our reality.
I am here to support you, to embrace your innate wisdom, connect with your baby and create the calm blissful birth experience you deserve.
As a mum to three beautiful children, I have experienced birthing with both fear and calm. I Hypno-water-birthed my babies into the world peacefully with focus, strength and determination, it was their empowering births that inspired me to become a practitioner.
To share my passion in hypnobirthing I will be running small group classes in the BOP area or in the comfort of your own home by special arrangement.
As a certified hypnobubs practitioner, I bring the philosophy and tools for you to create a beautiful, positive birthing experience.

Kia ora my name is Jayde and I reside in the beautiful garden city of Christchurch, New Zealand!
Through my own pregnancy and postpartum experience, I have found a keen interest in teaching birth education, supporting mamas in The Golden Month, and becoming a women’s health massage therapist specialising in fertility and postpartum massage.
When I became pregnant, I struggled with anxiety and fear. The thought of birthing terrified me. Thankfully, I was introduced to Hypnobirthing Australia, which changed my mind set and prepared me for a birthing experience of a lifetime that was positively empowering, drug-free, and beyond all expectations.
Mama Whānau has given me the blessing to provide services that help mama’s feel grounded in their pregnancy, present in their birth and supported during their postpartum.
I look forward to meeting you!

Meredith believes that birth is a rite of passage and a transformative experience no matter how you give birth. This is why preparation in the form of knowledge is so important.
Your birth should be a beautiful, empowering and positive experience. The birth of my daughter showed me that there’s a club called Motherhood that I didn’t know existed and I want everyone who joins that club to feel like their decisions and voice were respected in the process.
Meredith and her partner Mat attended a Hypnobirthing Australia course (starting on Valentine’s Day of all days!) and despite Meredith being an avid reader of pregnancy and birth books, there was still so much that both of them learnt. Meredith went on to use the hypnobirthing tools in her labour. Firstly by ignoring labour for as long as possible, then dancing with the surges, listening to the visualisation tracks, using optimal positioning and finally using the breathing techniques to bring Audie earthside.
Meredith is passionate about sharing what her family experienced – being prepared, informed and excited. She believes in evidence-based decision making that aligns with the mother and her birth partner’s values and needs.
Meredith’s classes will get you excited for your upcoming transformative birth. She would love to help you have a positive birth to remember.
