As experienced midwives, we have been supporting families through the journey of pregnancy and labour for a combined 20+ years. 

 

We have witnessed time and time again how mindset can make all the difference when it comes to the overall birthing experience. You may have heard of the fight or flight response – it’s our body’s natural way of reacting to the unknown. Experience has taught us that learning to navigate the unknown from birth will enable families to be fully ready and excited for the process, instead of fearing it. 

 

We wanted to take our knowledge and use it to help more families find that calm, powerful state that comes from feeling educated and confident in the body’s ability to birth your baby. 


But how? 

 

Luckily, we have met some amazing people throughout our journey who have showed us the way. We saw them welcome each sensation that labour brought on with a positive attitude – taking control of their birthing environment while being fully supported by their birth partners.

The more we learned about hypnobirthing, the more we saw how effective it was at breaking through the modern culture of fear around birth, and at supporting families to rediscover how empowering labour and birth can be.

So here we are, finally ready to share this approach and our knowledge with you!
