What is Hypnobirthing?

The Calm Hypnobirthing Course is a comprehensive birth preparation course that teaches parents practical and empowering techniques for preparing for a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free birth.

Through attending the workshop, along with your birthing companion, you can learn to embrace your body’s innate knowledge of birthing, working with your body and your baby experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner as nature intended.

You will discover how you can call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen, or even eliminate discomfort and the need for medication.

The Calm Hypnobirthing Courses are held at Birthcare in Auckland. Or if you live anywhere else in New Zealand (or the world) online course is for you.


How Can Calm Hypnobirthing Benefit Your Baby?

Increasing evidence from a variety of fields now confirms that pregnancy and birth set the tone for the rest of our lives.

Many Auckland Hypnobirthing parents report that their babies show qualities of gentleness, happiness and love.

A relaxed and happy mother has high levels of endorphins (the feel good hormone) that pass through to the baby, this means that their babies are also relaxed and happy.

Hypnobirthing babies generally feed and sleep well and have healthy birth weights.

“Hypnobirthing is an excellent way to achieve the birth you want, great techniques to learn how to relax and breath, very empowering..

Thank you so much Claire for your time and passion, we have really enjoyed your classes.”

Tristin, Midwife & First time Mum

How Can Calm Hypnobirthing Benefit Dads?

Dads have an integral part to play in the birthing process. They work alongside Mum, helping her to get into a deep state of relaxation, and guiding her with positive affirmations, deepening methods and visualisations to help her to remain thoroughly relaxed. They are also Mum's key support person and voice to communicate birthing preferences with medical staff.

Often Dads choose to receive the baby as he emerges. As a result, fathers feel empowered in the process and proud to help make such a contribution to the once in a lifetime event. Many fathers have also reported that the calming relaxation and visualisation techniques that they learn are beneficial to them in many areas of their lives long after the birth has taken place.

"HypnoBirthing is a way to make the birthing process a more positive experience.   Thank you Claire for your help and your gentle, positive approach."

What Dads Are Saying…

“I think that this course is the best thing we could have done to prepare for our first baby.

The relaxation exercises are very easy and effective, they made a world of difference during the birth.

We feel both feel that we have learnt positive skills for life! Thank you.”

Bryce, First time Dad.

“Before HypnoBirthing I was unsure what to expect except for what I had been told and seen on TV.  

Now after the course I feel confident and peaceful that I know the birth is not going to be painful or stressful at all.

Knowledge is power and your course was empowering.“

Ben, First time Dad.

At first I was worried that my husband would find it all a big waste of time, however, he really enjoyed it and got a lot out of the class. He appreciated the information he gained and since attending the classes has been instrumental in putting what we learned into practise. It is wonderful to have his full support.

Juleen Tjauw, First time Mum.

“We finished our antenatal classes, I have to say I found Hypnobirthing much more empowering as a dad. Often you get made to feel a bit like a comedy back up act as a dad by general consensus. Claire’s class focused on building a solid family from the beginning, of which Dads are a vital practical part.”

Gray, First time Dad.
