“If a Woman doesn’t feel like a Goddess when she is giving birth, then someone’s not treating her right”  ~ Ina May Gaskin ~


Helen is an accredited Hypnobirthing Australia practitioner who hosts regular hypnobirthing workshops. If you are looking for additional birth education and a deeper understanding of the process, Hypnobirthing Australia is a fabulous option.

How? Hypnobirthing Australia is an Australian written program to educate and empower families through the birthing journey. Our hypnobirthing courses teach you the tools for your birth including: visualisation, self hypnosis, guided meditation, relaxation and breathing to allow you to release any fears and become empowered in your birthing ability.


When? Group Classes are run regularly throughout the year. They are held either on a  weekend (9.30am-5pm) or weekday evenings (7-9pm). Please contact us to find out which workshop would suit your family. 


Private classes and refresher classes are available on request.

Where? All classes are held in Ferntree Gully, in the outer east of Melbourne. Specific location on inquiry.

How far along should I be? It is recommended you are between 24-34 weeks, but you can still gain a lot right up until your due date. If you are unsure please contact us for guidance.

Is it too late? It is never too late to benefit from Hypnobirthing Australia.

What will I learn? There are four separate but inclusive sessions.

  • Creating and maintaining a positive mindset
  • Choices, knowledge and tools for empowered birthing
  • Preparing the mind and body for birth
  • Birth, bringing it all together

Each session brings a unique understanding of your body and your mind, allowing you to release any fears and looking forward to birthing your baby. Visit, What is Hypnobirthing

Should my parents/birth support come? Absolutely, we welcome a support person with you. There are just as many, if not more, benefits for the support people as for the birthing woman

Does it matter how or where I am birthing? Not at all- we encourage women birthing in private hospitals, birth centres, public hospitals and at home to attend. Everyone can benefit from having more knowledge and less fear. Hypnobirthing Australia supports the woman's choice in where and how they give birth.

Why us? Helen is an experienced midwife who believes her past experience really gives her an edge in teaching this program. Helen has post graduate education in psychotherapy and counselling which is beneficial in releasing fear. Helen is also an IBCLC and loves working with families once they have had their baby. And she thoroughly enjoys teaching parenting skills and Normal Newborn behaviours.
