When should I start hypnobirthing?

Pregnancy Hypnobirthing

There is no right answer to this question. Because it’s never too late to use this wonderful birth preparation. However, there are so many benefits to having the knowledge early in pregnancy, that as a rule of thumb - earlier is always better.

Should I be concerned? 17 pregnancy symptoms you shouldn't ignore

Should I be concerned? 17 pregnancy symptoms you shouldn't ignore

by Justine Daly,


As a midwife I constantly tell my clients it’s always worth asking a professional. Just because your colleague once had an itch and was told not to worry by her GP, or your cousin had bleeding all through her pregnancy and everything was fine, it doesn’t mean you should ignore what’s happening with your body.

Midwife led Australia wide antenatal and hypnobirthing class

I have over 20 years experience as a midwife in the UK and Australia, working in both private and public hospitals. I have helped thousands of women in every scenario, from homebirths and water-births, births with complex issues, intervention, and caesarean births.

I am passionate about supporting women and families to be as relaxed and confident as they can be, whatever the circumstances. I have spent 20 years working in the Birth Centre and for the past few years have been an educator as part of the Child Birth Education Team. This means I am up to date with current research, policies and procedures when it comes to all things birth related.

In addition, I am a government accredited Clinical Hypnotherapist, with an Honours degree in Psychology. In my private practice I specialise in treating anxiety, trauma, fertility issues, pain management and phobias, as well as hypnobirthing techniques.

Bringing together these sets of skills, knowledge, and experience I can guide and prepare you to have the positive birth experience that you desire.
