without
losing control, feeling anxious about the unknown, or having unnecessary pain or intervention.

Since you are here, I'm sure you already know that if you want to experience a safe, calm and gentle birth, you can't just cross your fingers and hope for the best, you need to be prepared.

And, I'm willing to bet that you...

✔️ Are invested in providing the best for your baby now, and in their future.

✔️ Don't want to leave anything up to chance - you're dedicated to being as educated and empowered as you possibly can be.

✔️ Know that your mindset is key, so you want to make sure your head is in the right space, so you can have the best birth possible.

Hypnobirthing

But here are a few things you might not know...

Being well prepared for birth with hypnobirthing can also benefit you and your baby in the following ways:

↠  Birthing can be less painful

When you are in a state of relaxation, endorphins are released. These are up to 200 times more potent than morphine at blocking sensations of pain. When endorphins are flowing within your body, birth becomes more comfortable, often even pain-free, for both you and your baby.

↠  The length of your birth can be shorter

Allowing your body to relax during birth, gives your uterine muscles more space to open as they are designed to do. This moves your birth along faster and with more ease.

↠  You can reduce your chance of needing medical intervention

Being tense and in fear causes your birthing muscles to pull against each other, making birth a lot more painful and slowing the process down. This often leads to medical intervention to help you relax and move things along.  

↠  Your baby can experience a positive start to life

While in utero, your baby is preparing for life in the outside world. In fact, some neuroscientists believe that 50% of your baby's personality is being developed before they are born. When you feel relaxed and positive about your upcoming birth, your baby will be too. You're teaching them that your home is a safe and happy place. This allows them to ease into life feeling more calm and settled, with nothing to fear. 

↠  You'll feel like Wonder Woman

When you experience the strength of your body opening and you allow yourself to go with it in trust, you will receive your baby into your arms with exhilaration, and you can say - "I did it!" There's no other feeling quite like it. It will be a moment you will cherish forever.

“Can not sing enough praises for Claire and this hypnobirthing course. It helped me to shift through fears of birth and armed me with the tools and insights I needed to become in tune with my body and the birth process.”
EMMA MILDON, FIRST TIME MUM

Even though the reasons to have a calm birth are obvious, the path to creating it is not.

Even though the reasons to have a calm birth are obvious, the path to creating it is not.


I bet you are wondering "Why is it that even though I want a calm birth, I still feel so anxious?"

Perhaps you've seen a beautiful, calm birth on YouTube, or have a friend who had a great hypnobirthing experience.

You know that calm, natural birth is possible and you want to make sure you do everything you can to have an amazing birth.

You've gone out and found a great midwife or obstetrician. You've subscribed for emails to keep track of how your baby is growing week by week. You've begun reading various books and articles online about pregnancy and birth during your spare time. You feel like you are doing all of the right things.

But after doing this research for several months, all the information begins to feel like too much information, even though you still have more questions. Your head is spinning and your heart is racing. You are left with thoughts like ...

"I don't know if I can do it."

What set out as an endeavour to become informed, now has you feeling more anxious because you realise how many women begin their births with high hopes, but they end up experiencing extreme pain and trauma.

Here's the thing; much of the pain women feel during birth, has a lot to do with how much fear they have about birth.

What's not talked about enough is the mind-body connection and how this plays such a powerful role in the experience of birth.

If you are holding onto subconscious fear during birth, your body will get the message "it's not safe to birth my baby". This will cause your body to constrict, holding your baby in, and your uterine muscles will work against each other.

Stress hormones will alert you to the pain, and prevent you from resting. Over time this is exhausting and it becomes harder to cope with the pain.

It's not really something to look forward to is it?

But it doesn't have to be this way for you.

The 3 Main Ways You Could Block Yourself From Having A Calm Birth

REASON #1
Listening to traumatic birth stories

Did you notice that when you began telling people you were pregnant, you started to hear lots of birth stories? Women love sharing their birth experiences, but sadly because women have become so disconnected from our innate birthing wisdom, so many stories are infused with trauma and pain.

These stories can lead you to believe that you will also experience a lot of pain.

If you go into your birth feeling scared, this sends the message to your body to tense and hold onto your baby, leading to a much more difficult birth.

REASON #2
Not being fully prepared and just hoping for the best.

As you likely know by now, your mindset plays such a powerful role in how you will experience birth.

Not preparing yourself mentally and physically for birth is like running a marathon without ever trying on your training shoes and going for a run.

It takes specific mental and physical practice to prepare for a calm, gentle birth experience.

REASON #3
Handing the decision-making over to someone else.

Too often during birth, women will forget, or don't even know, that they have the right to make their own informed decisions at every step of the way.

If you hand your decision making power over to someone else, it opens you up to the risk of feeling unsafe and out of control. In turn, your uterus will tense and hold on to your baby causing pain and slowing your birth down or stopping it completely.

BOOK NOW

I'm going to let you in on something...


Even though women have been giving birth since the beginning of humanity's existence on earth, it isn't just something you can ask a few friends about, cross your fingers and hope for the best.

As you know, there isn't any shortage of information available 'out there' about birth. But trying to sift through all of that information is exhausting, overwhelming and confusing.

Creating a gentle, calm birth doesn't need to be complicated, but it does require practice and preparation.

When you take the steps to release fear and are well prepared with specific techniques to work with your body, your mind and body can birth in harmony.

Your birthing muscles get sent the message from your brain, "it's safe to birth my baby", so they rhythmically open without restriction, and your pain-blocking hormones, endorphins and oxytocin, help to move your birth along faster, and with greater ease.

This is how birth is naturally designed to be.

You don't need to know everything about birth, leave that to your medical team.

Your job is to prepare your mind and body to work harmoniously so that you can to birth your baby more easily.

You absolutely can birth your baby with intimacy, respect and lots of yummy love hormones.

And with your permission, I'd love to show you how to create a beautiful birth.

My husband and I truly enjoyed this course. Being yoga teachers, we already have some knowledge of breathing techniques and relaxation practices but it was so good to have it presented in relation to the birthing process. This is a fantastic course to do for people to learn techniques and tools for releasing fears and turning it around into having an empowering mindset. Claire is an excellent facilitator. She makes everyone feel relaxed and safe to share or feel whatever it is you are feeling. There is no judgement. We would recommend going if you would like experience a positive birthing experience.

Joleen Lunjew, first time mum
So if you’re ready to create a more calm, gentle hypnobirth and avoid unnecessary pain and intervention, here's how I can help you...

LAYER 1

Be Informed and Release Fear

When you understand what your body actually does in birth to open and release your baby, the overwhelm will cease and you will feel more confident.

With this foundational piece you will learn a simple, effective way of releasing any debilitating fears of not being able to do it. Since fear in the mind leads to pain in the body during birth, this step is essential for birthing your baby comfortably and gently.

Highlights:

You'll learn how...

↠  To adopt the natural birthing mindset and set yourself up for success from the start.

↠  Your body is perfectly designed to birth your baby gently. When you know this, you won't be scared of it anymore and instead feel more confident about working with your body, instead. of just coping through birth.

↠  To move into your body's optimal, calm birth state to feel more comfortable and euphoric, through the whole process.

↠  To use a quick and effective technique to remove any fear or anxiety so that nothing will stand in the way of you creating your ideal birth. After birth, you can use this to remove stress from any area of your life. (It's a very handy technique for parenting!)

↠  BONUS: Download the Fear Release Guided Meditation for any time you need a little extra support and guidance to release nervous feelings about birth or parenting.

LAYER 2

Breathe & Relax

Once you understand the perfect design of your body and have released any fears that may stand in your way, you'll be ready to build your confidence through learning exactly what to do on the day of your birth.

Highlights:

You'll learn how to...

↠ Easily get into (and stay in) the optimal birthing state of calm relaxation.

↠  Effectively breathe with your body during birth (not fight against it) to reduce the length of your labour.

↠  Use specific self relaxation techniques to achieve full body relaxation. You'll feel confident that, wherever you are, or whoever you're with when your birth begins, you'll know what to do. An added bonus is that you'll likely sleep more deeply during your pregnancy and your baby will benefit from your regular relaxation practice too.

↠  Birth your baby gently to reduce the risk of damage to your body and distress to your baby.

↠  Use the 'X' technique if you have a busy mind that prevents you from relaxing quickly and easily.

↠  BONUS: Meditation for Relaxation to practice being in the optimal state of calm for birth. You can listen to this on your birthing day to keep you focused and relaxed.



LAYER 3

Be Supported & Empowered

Building on your framework, practicing exactly how to work with your birthing body, it is time to get your support people onboard.

When you feel totally supported during birth, you will be free to direct your focus inwards, and follow the lead of your body and your baby, rather than trying to do everything yourself.

Highlights:

↠  Your birth partner will learn out how to confidently support you in your pregnancy and on the day, so they feel helpful, not helpless in the integral role they play. There is a handy two page Partner Cheat Sheet to guide them.

↠  They will learn how to help you stay in the ultimate calm, relaxed and comfortable state using relaxation and massage techniques. You and your baby will love these!

↠  Use the Birth Plan Template to get clear on your personal birthing wishes. This creates a solid foundation for clearly expressing your preferences with your LMC.

↠  Using the list of Effective Questions to ask your medical team, you'll be be informed and empowered, every step of the way.

↠  Implement the practice to strengthen your intuition so that you can confidently decide on the right path for yourself and your baby.

↠  Learn how you can have a rewarding experience, even when your birth doesn't go to plan.

LAYER 4

Use the Power
of Creative Visualisation

Now that you're feeling educated, prepared and empowered, it is time to put your mind power to work to bring your best birthing experience to reality.

You will be using the same methods that top sports and business people use to achieve the outcomes they desire.

Some women are afraid to visualise what they want for birth incase they don't achieve it. In this layer I teach you how to avoid setting yourself up for disappointment, regardless of how your baby enters the world.

Highlights:

You'll learn how to...

↠  Get crystal clear on how you want your birthing day to unfold. This clarity will help you to confidently practice and prepare for a beautiful birth.

↠  Strengthen your mind - body connection by following the guide to learn how to choose positive birth affirmations that are perfect for you.

↠  Anchor your affirmations by choosing from the list of creative ideas to enhance your confidence. Download the Birthing Mandala Colouring Book to support your practice.

↠  Practice with the guided affirmations audio track anytime to strengthen and align your positive birth mindset.

↠  Encourage your baby into the optimal position for easier descent and birth.

↠  Enhance your connection and bond with your baby during their formative time in utero. This will increase their levels of 'happy hormones' allowing them to be more calm, content and peaceful babies.

↠  Use the Scheduling Template to customise your plan for practice, with doable action steps. Following this plan will have you feeling empowered and prepared when the day comes for you to meet your precious baby.

↠  BONUS: Additional Birth Tips are included to help you deepen your knowledge and confidence.
