I'm RECERTIFIED! Hypnobirthing Australia™ / Hypnobubs™ Certified Practitioner!
In early 2019 I took some time off teaching Hypnobirthing Australia's™ Positive Birth Program as Alex & I were exploring the east coast of Australia in our mobile home. Not staying in one community long enough to build a rapport with locals and teach classes. We also went travelling overseas, which was cut short due to covid-19.
Now, due to the world's current situation, we are staying put for a while AND classes have transitioned to online.
It is a confusing time for pregnant women, for everyone. Not knowing what the restrictions & recommendations may be at their time of birth, as this is always changing. Even prior to this pandemic, I have always recommended to pregnant women and their support persons, the BEST thing they can do for themselves, is to get educated.
Empower themselves with knowledge. Know ALL of your options for labour and birth. Know the benefits and risks of procedures PRIOR to labour and birth, so that you can make INFORMED decisions on the day.
I am PROUD to be a Hypnobirthing Australia™ Certified Practitioner, as honestly, I have not seen a more comprehensive, user friendly, evidence-based childbirth education course. And while some hospital based childbirth classes may be informative, I do recommend seeking independent education as well. This is because most hospital courses will be restricted by their specific policies and guidelines.
Due to the pandemic, all face to face hospital antenatal classes have been cancelled - leaving a lot of women with no childbirth education plans.
Thankfully, myself and other Hypnobirthing Australia™ certified practitioners, have a number of different options available for you, all online (while restrictions are in place).
You can read more HERE about online options & I'll do another post soon :)
