A Private Midwife gives you the opportunity for gold standard care – a known midwife for all antenatal appointments, the same midwife through labour and birth and postnatal visits until 6 weeks.

Our most popular, and intensive class HypnoBirthing is taught over 4/5 weeks.

Or our Mindful Birthing class might be more your style with 1 full day of education and antenatal yoga included.

All of our birth classes cover the physical, and emotional changes during pregnancy, birth and postnatal, so you can rest assured, you’ll be in great hands.

More about our Brisbane Ipswich Antenatal Classes/Services

Do you want to have the same person for all appoinments in pregnancy?

Do you want to know the midwife you will have in labour?

Do you want more than 1 postnatal visit at home to ensure you have transitioned into motherhood?

It sounds like you are looking for a Private Midwife for you pregnancy journey. A Private Midwife is like a GP or obstetrician in that you have all your appointments with the same person. Unlike these models of care, I will be there with you birth but also through your labour supporting, educating and cheering you on. Appointments are also longer to ensure adequate physical and emotional support.

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.

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.

Having taught for the last 5 years, I have moved into Private Practice offering Private Midwife services for women wanting to birth in hospital and at home. If you want to experience continuity of care with a known midwife through your pregnancy journey, check out my Midwife Services or get in contact.
