Hypnobirthing Australia(TM) Classes

What is Hypnobirthing?

At Mindful Impact we pride ourselves on delivering what we believe is the highest quality childbirth education program inTania Davies - Hypnobirthing Australia Certified Practitioner 01 Australia. The Hypnobirthing Australia(TM) program is the most modern, comprehensive and popular hypnobirthing course in Australia.

The Hypnobirthing Australia(TM) program is uniquely designed for Australian mothers and their birth companions. It is the natural approach to childbirth! Hypnobirthing Australia(TM) classes prepare you with the knowledge, confidence and tools you need to birth calmly. Birth can, and should be, a positive experience – one that you will always want to remember. Our program is designed for both natural and caesarean birth, which is why it is revolutionising birthing in Australia. Basically – we promote POSITIVE birth and are well prepared for whatever turns our birth may or may not take.
Hypnobirthing Australia(TM)

Hypnobirthing is as much a philosophy of birthing as it is techniques. When a mother and her birth companion are able to approach their birth without fear and with knowledge, good support, and tools for the birth – then their birthing can be a positive and empowering experience.

The ‘hypno’ part of ‘hypnobirthing’ refers to the hypnotherapy that we use during the program to release fears and condition ourselves to release endorphins at times during our birth. With the help of hypnotherapy, the birth of your baby can be a more calm and relaxed experience; one where you are in the drivers seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. This is likely to reduce the need for interventions during your birthing.

Hypnobirthing uses a combination of different techniques and philosophies that have existed for many, many years. Ancient wisdom is combined with modern theory – giving you the advantage in your acquisition of knowledge as you prepare for your birth. The Hypnobirthing Australia program can help you to prepare for a calm and positive natural birth; whilst at the same time having the knowledge and tools to effectively deal with any special circumstances if they were to arise.

Why trust Mindful Impact to help empower you for birth?Mindful Impact Hypnobirthing Australia image

  • During your classes you will receive personalised expert tuition from Tania Davies, a Certified Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner trained to the highest Australian standards. Tania is a two-time hypnobirthing mother and has also been personally trained and accredited by Melissa Spilsted, Director of Hypnobirthing Australia.
  • All clients are provided with a hardcopy folio of resources and several professionally recorded world famous Australian accent practice tracks, an eBook & practice video.
  • The course material and techniques have been personally designed by Melissa Spilsted, for use specifically by Australian mothers and their birth partners. The course outline is designed around evidence based research, statistics and scientific studies which you can review here
  • The modern, up-to-date birthing videos that are shown in classes are recent and from Australia, New Zealand and the UK. 
  • The Hypnobirthing Australia techniques we use are down-to-earth, straightforward and easily learned (by both mother and birth partner). 
  • Hypnobirthing classes are structured in such a way that the birth partner is encouraged to attend. The partner’s love and support throughout pregnancy and during birth, provide valuable reassurance and bonding in preparation for the birth of your baby and pending parenthood. Having said this, sometimes there are reasons why the birthing mother needs to attend the course solo – and this is also completely fine. You never really are alone, because your birth partner is also your baby. 
  • Our classes are taught over two full days, but we also have options for private sessions too. Book now!
  • If you cannot make one of our classes face-to-face, Hypnobirthing Australia offers an alternative online course, with the option to book a private session with Tania to ensure you have the best preparation for birth.
  • Each class is made up of theory (audio-visual, spoken explanations and interactive discussions) and practical (active relaxation and breathing exercises, hands-on massage techniques and hypnosis practice) components.
  • We keep class sizes small to ensure our clients get the most out of our personal tuition.

You deserve for this to be the best birth for you and your baby, so contact Tania to discuss how she can help you to design your own positive preparation for an empowered birth. Alternatively, you can secure a place right now in our next class directly through our bookings centre

Tania teaches classes in the stunning Adelaide Hills area of Crafers and through private classes over Skype. The Mindful Impact clinic is located at 7/5 Main Street Crafers, SA 5152 - free carparking, enter off Cox Place

When can I start?

Ideally we like to see clients between 20 and 32 weeks of pregnancy to give you the best opportunity to practice the techniques. If you happen to be over 32 weeks, don't worry - contact Tania to see what options can be designed specifically to suit your special circumstances.

Can Hypnobirthing help if I need a Caesarean Section (C-Section)?

Yes it certainly can! In fact Tania would be delighted to have a chat and discuss how you can enrol in the Positive Caesarean Birth Program to empower you during your birth.

Tania is fully certified to teach the world first Hypnobirthing Australia(TM) Positive Caesarean Birth Program which has been designed specifically for couples planning an elective Caesarean. This is a face-to-face (or over skype) class taught over either one 4 hour session or 2 x 2hr sessions, and includes a caesarean specific folio of resources, 5 relaxation & self hypnosis mp3 tracks, and an eBook. 

Most importantly Tania will be available through email and phone contact to support you in anyway necessary in the lead up to your beautiful birth.
