Why do I teach hypnobirthing?
I am incredibly passionate about teaching hypnobirthing to expectant mothers and their birthing companions, because I truly believe that every woman, whether it be your first, second or third (or so on) time giving birth, you have the right to have an amazing, POSITIVE birthing experience, which you feel empowered by and the Hypnobirthing Australia™ program offers just this.
Thinking back to when I fell pregnant for the first time, I remember asking the question “…why would I choose to deliver my baby without drugs, if drugs took away the pain?” I really had no idea about my options and more importantly about what the repercussions were. As a first-time mother, I was clueless and I didn’t have the information that was going to empower me and give me the self-confidence to make the necessary decisions about my own body. I feared what people told me about birth and I was scared because it was my first time having a baby and I felt I was going to fail miserably at it. So, I started my research and found hypnobirthing.
This was the course that changed me as a person. I went from knowing so little about my body to fully understanding what my body was capable of and how specifically it was going to work with my baby. I learnt tools to calm myself, focus and relax and I developed through the course an amazing sense of self-confidence and I felt so positive. This is the feeling that I want for all expecting mums. We deserve that and so do your bubs!
I hear from many women of how they felt powerless during their birthing experiences and unaware of all their options and as a result having decisions made on your behalf. Now, I’m certainly not saying that every birth is going to be perfect and run like clockwork, however when you have the necessary information you can make informed decisions and feel empowered to make the decisions that are going to be best for you and your baby and therefore you can have the birthing experience that you will always be able to look back on with fond memories.
I feel privileged and excited to be teaching this program and seeing more and more women walk away with a beautiful, positive birth experience.
