More about our Brisbane Ipswich Antenatal Classes

Our 5-week comprehensive HypnoBirthing Course is aimed at preparing you and your birth support person for an awesome and empowered birth.  We teach you techniques to relax your body and mind during labour which has been proven to reduce pain.  HypnoBirthing also encourages birth partners to take an active role during birth with massage techniques, knowing the different stages of labour and what to expect at each stage.  So partners can advocate for mums during labour – if she can’t.

This course is set out over a few weeks to allow you to absorb everthing you need to know.  Mentally prepare and practice everthing you need for a confident and informed pregnancy and birth!

Midwife meets Yogi!  Our fabulous 1 day antenatal class covers everthing the hospital courses don’t teach you about how to have the best possible pregnancy and birth.

Learn about your body changes during pregnancy, the stages of labour and what to expect at each stage.  The importance of being relaxed during labour and active birth, and what you need to plan and decide on before entering the delivery room, so you are prepared for every outcome.

We finish the day with a beautiful prenatal yoga session for mum, while partners spend time with our midwife at the pub where they can ask all the questions they don’t want to ask in front of you.

Charlotte - HypnoBirthing Educator

Birth Classes with experience

Hi,  I’m Charlotte,

A Midwife of 10 years, a mother, HypnoBirthing practitioner and birth educator.

I’ve worked in and around Brisbane and Ipswich Hospitals (as well as interstate).  I have helped birth babies in large high risk hospitals and in smaller/regional hospitals, as well as in private and public sector.

During this time, I’ve had my own three children and become a certified HypnoBirthing practitioner.

All three of my births were very different and this is why I teach birth classes.  If theres one thing I’ve learnt from my many years in pregnancy and birth, it’s that education is the key to having the birth you want.
