“I highly recommend the course. Even though the name might conjure up different ideas, it was a practical and informative course. Understanding the science behind what my body will go through during birth, and how physiologically we are designed to have positive birthing experiences has calmed my fears going into the birth of my first baby.
The resources provided (print out and included affirmations/relaxation tracks) are beautifully relaxing, informative and empowering. And Kate as the teacher and hypnobirthing practitioner was warm and welcoming. She was completely professional, knowledgeable, fun and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed to be able to ask anything we needed to.”
“We loved our hypnobirthing classes. Kate was incredible at taking us through the tool box and helping us focus on which may work best for us. She was friendly and very approachable. The videos were fantastic at showing us what a hypnobirthing could be. The second day of the course and the extra readings were very informative and helped us to make educated decisions about our birth preferences.
Knowing that Kate will check-in with us towards the end of our pregnancy and that we can contact her for advice and support is very reassuring.
We are going into this birth with increased confidence and knowledge. Thank you Kate and Positively hypnobirthing.”
“The classes were great. We definitely felt more prepared for birth and more empowered. They really helped open up conversations with my partner. Conversations we may not have had which were important for the birth. They gave my partner a really good idea of what he could do in birth and how he could help.
The techniques were simple and effective, anyone could learn to implement them.
Kate was amazing – incredibly supportive and knowledgeable.
Would absolutely recommend all women and couples do the Hypnobirthing Australia™ course.
Thank you! : )”
“Wow! Totally blown away by how amazing the Hypnobirthing Australia™ course is and would have to say that Kate played the major part in making it one we are so glad we have done. I must say, I had heard about hypnobirthing when I was pregnant with my first but didn’t really know what it was about and then I found out early on that bub was breech so didn’t look into it, thinking it was only applicable to natural births – oh how I was wrong and so wish I could turn back the clock and have met Kate before when I had bub no.1, but I am just so thankful I am now equipped for the arrival of bub no2 in February.
The morning of our first session my husband was moaning and groaning asking me why are we doing this? What is it anyways and do I really have to be here and do I have to be here for all 4 sessions etc. etc. and as the session started Kate immediately with her amazing personality and knowledge had captivated my husbands attention and had him happily participating and taking great interest. After Kate left I asked him- so you happy to do the next 3 sessions? and he was so impressed and was actually excited to learn more and this is credit to Kate.
She is really passionate and knowledgeable about hypnobirthing and birthing and pregnancy in general and we both felt so incredibly comfortable with her, talking about such intimate and personal matters. We can not wait to put what we have learnt into practice come February when we have bub no.2.
Kate thank you so much you have truly changed and educated us on so much we did not know and have given us the gift to achieve a calm, happy birth and tools to deal with anything that may arise in calm rational way.
Cant wait to keep you updated on the arrival of our hypnobub.”
“I had heard of hypnobirthing from a friend a few years ago who used the techniques and told me she had an amazing birth. When signing up for the course, all I hoped was that I would get some techniques that would help me to remain calm and in control during my birth. What I actually got was so much more. I feel prepared to face whatever comes my way, I am not afraid of what is ahead, and crazy enough – I’m actually excited about giving birth!! My husband is an engineer, so is very analytical and at first was a bit sceptical when I told him I had signed us up for the classes but was willing to go along with it for me. But after each class he would comment that it all just made so much sense! The explanations about how our body and mind works, the information about the chemistry and mechanics that you can use to your advantage – each time Kate finished a session he was completely on board with what we had just discussed and often went away to research and find out even more information.
I think the best thing about the classes are that it helps both mum and dad prepare for what’s to come. I feel prepared and in tune with my body, and I’ve regained control of what seemed like an uncontrollable situation so much so that even if everything goes pair-shaped on the day, I know I’ll be in control of my mind and my body still. My husband knows what his role is, and actually feels like a really important part of the birth process. He is confident in how to support me and how to handle different situations when under certain pressures. Most importantly, we’re ready to do this as a team to get the best outcome for us!!”
“Dave and I found the classes so interesting and even more informative then we could have imagined.
I really don’t think we would be as excited and relaxed for our upcoming birth and as confident in my body if we didn’t take Kate’s hypnobirthing classes.
Kate made us feel so comfortable from the moment we met and welcomed her into our home. We loved hearing all about her own hypnobirthing experiences. These made us feel like we could connect on a very personal level, and realise that she simply just wants the best birth for everyone.
We have learnt so much, and now strongly believe that having a true understanding of what the body and mind is capable of really is the most powerful tool in being able to control your own birth, or be at peace with any unforeseen circumstances that can arise.
We can’t wait to bring our little human into the world, in a positive, calm and loving environment, thanks to Kate!”
“Kate is professional and has a very calming presence. I would recommend her to anyone who wants try hypnosis as a way to relax & create a positive mindset.”
“I wanted to thank you Kate for the hypnosis sessions we did. I felt so relaxed, focused and calm after seeing you. This really has helped me. Thank you! Highly recommended.”
