Christy – Registered Midwife – HypnoBirth baby Lincoln (2nd Bub), October 2017
“I would recommend any expecting mums and dads to do HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method classes with Charlotte. The program can really help mums and dads become informed about their birthing choices and prepare them to have a calm and empowered birth. The relaxation techniques taught by Charlotte can really help to have a calm relaxed pregnancy not just the birth, while bonding with your partner. Adjusting to parenthood is a major change and Charlotte can help with providing postnatal support and education as well, when you really need it.”
” Charlotte’s hypnobirthing class was fantastic! Very informative & helps to give confidence on how incredible & capable the female body is. Makes me feel so excited to go into birth feeling educated & knowing a few practical tips & tools to get through the more intense parts of the birthing process. Charlotte is very warm & down to earth which made me feel comfortable to ask all my million first time mum questions! highly recommend. “
“Meeting Charlotte and learning about HypnoBirthing – The Mongan Method had changed my whole perspective regarding pregnancy and birth. As soon as I found out I was pregnant (first time!) fear and uncertainty set in. I just assumed I’d go to hospital and they’d do everything. My coping mechanism was pretty much denial and that I’d deal with it when it happened!Alas, I kept thinking about it and the fear turned into anxiety which led me down a google search and discovering HypnoBirthing. I now no longer fear or have anxiety and feel totally confident in my bodies natural ability to birth my baby! Charlotte has been amazing and has gone above and beyond to help me not only wiht HypnoBirthing techniques but also understanding medical concerns etc. It’s so awesome that she’s a practicing midwife too! She’s always so supportive and happy to be phoned about any concerns. I’m due in April and can’t wait to birth and meet my first baby :)”

“When I found out I had placenta previa and vasa praevia, Charlotte was happy to change our scheduled natural birth one-on-one HypnoBirthing classes to cesarean focused classes. She even formed the content of the classes to things I definitely wanted to cover and know more about.
The information was comprehensive and also included a book, workbook and audio. Charlotte is a teacher you can trust, informative with her years of midwifery experience, always organised and on time, I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her HypnoBirthing, birth planning and cesarean birthing classes to others.”

” For me, Charlotte was always a voice of calm. She was the sound of peace and experience, during life’s greatest of adventures – pregnancy and birth. She laughed with me while my bump grew, and gave me a better understanding of all the possible eventualities. I was lucky enough to live nearby, and this was especially useful when my waters broke at home one night! My midwife was too far away, so my husband called Charlotte. I was panicking when she arrived, but as usual she was the voice of calm! She talked me through what was happening, and within minutes she had delivered my beautiful baby girl, Ebony! Whilst I had not planned a home birth, in the end it was one of the most amazing and empowering experiences of my life. Charlotte is wonderful, I can’t recommend her enough! “
“Charlotte was so informative and supportive. The information provided in the course was comprehensive and very helpful. Charlotte went above and beyond to make sure we had answers to all of our questions and felt confident going into the birth. She made herself so available to us first-time parents which was a huge source of comfort for us. Thanks Charlotte!”

“It was great to get come sensible advice on breastfeeding from an experienced midwife. Charlotte’s medical background really helped my husband get on board with what she was saying and we now have some great ideas for strategies to help me succeed this time round.”
Baby boy “Angus Darcy” was born on Thursday afternoon. A little bigger than anticipated…4.1kg! We are home from the hospital now and doing really well.
I can’t thank you enough. Patrick and I felt totally calm and in control throughout the whole experience. Your guidance gave me the confidence to trust my body, slow down and have the strength to “push through” (literally haha) at the suggestion of interventions or a c-section.
Breastfeeding has been a dream! The nurses couldn’t believe he was my first baby. A complete credit to your teaching!
“Charlotte was our teacher for Hypnobirthing to prepare for our first baby. I had quite a few fears around childbirth and I believed Hypnobirthing would be a suitable course to put my mind at ease. Charlotte is a fantastic teacher as she has a great range of skills and knowledge that compliments Hypnobirthing. Charlotte being a mother of 3, a midwife and a birth educator means she is an endless tap of knowledge. I found her classes comfortable and full of insight. After completing the Hypnobirthing course I felt confident and calm to birth my baby. My birth was calm, not painful and I was in control of my birth. I believe I can thank Charlotte for my wonderful and calm birth.”
“This was such an amazing and empowering course! Charlotte gave me the confidence to have the type of positive birth that I really want for myself, partner and baby. I am now excited about giving birth and I look forward to using the skills and techniques Charlotte taught me.”
” Loved the Mindful Birthing Class it was fun and helped alot when I was in labour. Highly recommend Charlotte. “
“I can not praise charlotte enough! The techniques she taught my partner and I helped us through our pregnancy and especially birth. She taught us the importance of support, breathing techniques, how AMAZING the female body is and most importantly not to be afraid of child birth, that you CAN do this ( just to name a few) even after birth she was there for me with any questions I had! all in all I couldn’t of gone through my weeks worth of labour if it weren’t for charlottes help, she’s an amazing person!”
“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I felt like the info was balanced and not to sway anyone any particular way!”
“I absolutely loved your class and how thought out, prepared and presented it was, you had thought about absolutely everything and everything kinda just rolled in together, so instead of a class it was kinda just like a nice big informative conversation with a friend.”
“Thanks so much guys! This was awesome. I really loved the little bit of anatomy and physiology to help support understanding of labour. Thanks again, I got a lot out of this!”
” Charlotte is exceptional in all that she does. as a first time mum-to-be, I was a nervous wreck! Attending the Hypnobirthing classes taught me so much and gave me SO much confidence in myself and my ability to follow my birthing plan, as well as adjust to the changes.”

“This has been such a good experience during my pregnancy. My partner and I are able to bond beautiful with our unborn child and I have never felt more calm and in control for my future labour. Charlotte is a wonderful teacher who takes the time to really sit down and chat to everyone’s individual needs.”
” I am entering my labour and birth journey feeling empowered and knowledgeable thanks to Charlotte and Mikeala. We completed the Mindful birth course and genuinely feel excited for this time ahead.”
“We were delighted to attended Charlottes hypnobirthing classes in our second trimester of our first pregnancy. The course was filled with interesting information and more importantly the classes were fun and interactive 🤗
Charlotte focuses not only on the core class material but also has the ability to blend it with your own personal situation. Charlotte built up our knowledge for what we were about to go through, enabling us with different methods and tools to approach the birth (cesarean or natural) calmly.
My husband in particular found the factual information to be insightful and built his confidence and “toolbox” for what he could do to assist me and the delivery of our baby boy. He also felt the knowledge armed him with what our rights are to be able to question, speak up and have a voice in the labour room.
We would highly recommend Charlottes classes, Charlotte is not only a qualified midwife, she is very personable, down to earth, caring, friendly and has the added essential element of humour and fun in her character. Charlotte continued supporting me through out my pregnancy and still continues to be there for me when ever I need.
This wonderful experience is a must!”
“I highly recommend Charlotte in all things birth related. She is so warm, friendly and professional during these courses, and she made myself and my husband feel prepared and more at ease with giving birth. The HypnoBirthing course definitely helped when it came time for baby to arrive. Thank you so much Charlotte xx”
Iris “I thoroughly enjoyed attending the day workshop Mindful Birthing when I was 23 weeks pregnant. As someone who hasn’t had many close friends/ family members have children recently, I would say that 95% of what was delivered in the workshop was still unknown to me, which means that I learned a lot! It was also great that partners were encouraged to attend the workshop, because as a result of attending my husband and I have had conversations about birthing options that we didn’t even know existed beforehand. I would highly recommend this workshop to any new parents-to-be!“
Andy “It gave me a lot of information I didn’t realise how much I needed. It was great!”
“My partner and I are first time parents.
We are so thankful we found Charlotte as our hypnobirthing teacher.
We needed to have private lessons, due to work schedules. However it was totally worth it.
We learnt so much and both feel very empowered the experience of bringing our little bubba into this world is going to be great. No matter what that looks like.
I have a very confident and encouraged attitude and approach to the impending birth and now, can’t wait.“
“Charlotte is a fount of knowledge! She answered all of my crazy first time mum questions, never made me feel silly for asking and was very welcoming and open.”
” I really enjoyed your webinar last night. I definitely related to the approaches you discussed and have utilised pretty much all of the tips and am very much on that same page with them all =) they can all be used however your pregnancy and birth looks and plays out as it is different for everyone and that’s the beauty of it =)
What a journey pregnancy is, and so excited to welcome our baby into the world very soon however that looks for us, it will be a beautiful journey.
Thank you so much for sharing all beautiful knowledge with us all, it is greatly appreciate”
“My partner and I are on the cusp of welcoming our second child – Full of excitement and knowledge thanks to Charlotte after we completed the 5 week hypnobirthing class with her. She has turned what we were so worried about to absolute calmness and joy (after experiencing a traumatic first birth) I am so ready to put into action all of the skills she has taught us to bring our daughter into this world! I would highly highly recommend Charlotte to ALL expecting mummas, the confidence and knowledge she has given both my partner and myself is something we will always be greatful for.”
“My partner and I loved every minute of the classes we attended leading up to the birth of our first baby. We found everything we learned to be very helpful during labour. Thank you so much Charlotte! You were a wonderful support to us! We are looking forward to doing a refresher course when we fall pregnant the next baby! “
“Charlotte and Mikeala did the most amazing job of easing my tension going into labour as a first time mum. Their class left me feeling empowered about my body and how to use all of the natural capabilities of my body to get through this! Highly recommend”
