HypnoBirthing® Packages

I’m a fully trained Birth Doula and HypnoBirthing® (The Mongan Method) Practitioner. I offer birth education classes and packages to suit a range of needs and budgets.

I’m based in Bunbury/Dardanup and I teach HypnoBirthing® classes throughout the South West, both privately or in group sessions, however I also travel regularly, so I can also teach HypnoBirthing® in many different places, or even via Skype!

Here are the packages I offer… (if you’re on your phone, click on the class and it will open up the image so you can zoom in to read).

{ Do you live in the South West? }

Me too! I can come to you and do the HypnoBirthing® course in the comfort of your own home, or in a group setting!


{ Upcoming Group Course Dates }

Bunbury: Mondays 6pm-8.30pm: April/May (dates TBA) 2017

Bunbury: Mondays 6pm-8.30pm: July/August (dates TBA) 2017

Classes are limited to 3 couples, so please book in early to ensure you don’t miss out!

If the above dates/times/locations don’t suit you, please let me know and I’m happy to work with you to schedule something to suit.

Private classes and classes with friends can be booked any time.


{ How far do I travel for local classes in the South West? }

I can travel anywhere in the South West. I do charge a small fee to cover the extra cost of fuel if your home is more than 30km away from Dardanup West, but it’s very minimal, just to cover my extra travel costs. I regularly do classes in Dardanup, Bunbury, Binningup, Busselton, Australind, Eaton, Collie, Capel, Donnybrook, Cowaramup, Margaret River… I go all over the place really!


{ Don’t live in the South West? }

No problem! I can still teach you via webcam, either privately or as a group with my “Virtually Present” package.

Or click on my “Wanderlust” link in the menu to find out how to get me to come to your area and I can teach you the course in person! Yep! Honest!


{ Doing the HypnoBirthing® Course for a second time? }

If you’ve already done the HypnoBirthing® course with me during a previous pregnancy and would like to do the course again for your current pregnancy, I’m happy to offer a discount to you. See the table above for details.

You get so much out of doing the course for a second time. In the words of one of my repeat clients, “I found the HypnoBirthing course so interesting the second time round. It was just like watching a psychological thriller a second time… everything makes sense!”


{ Is finance an issue? }

I do understand that money can be tight during pregnancy and parenthood. If cost is an issue, please contact me to arrange a payment plan.


{ What does HypnoBirthing® teach? }

HypnoBirthing® is a full childbirth education course and so much more.

Throughout the course, we discuss what your body will be doing during labour and birth and why. We talk about what your baby will be doing during labour and birth and why. The course explains how to work with your body’s birthing process and natural expulsive reflex, to allow your body to do what it was designed to do and does so well. It teaches anatomy, breathing techniques, how different positions, interventions and situations help or hinder the labour and birth process.

It teaches your partner about birth and gives them tips and confidence on how to best support you.

It teaches the history of birth and the medical system.

It explains how fear and stress affects your body’s ability to birth and also affects your baby’s oxygen supply. It’s important to face your fears and work through them and release them, so they don’t become an issue during your labour and birth. HypnoBirthing® helps you do this.

It discusses breastfeeding, care providers, water births, hospital births, home births, cord clamping, scans tests and your options… it goes over SO much over the space of 5 weeks.

But the biggest thing you’ll notice isn’t the specifics of what it teaches. The biggest thing that you’ll notice is what all this information changes your mindset about birth. HypnoBirthing® helps you get back to your instincts. By the end of the course, you will notice that you will be feeling so much more confident. SO much more informed. And SO much more excited about your upcoming birth than you ever thought possible. It will really ignite a passion inside you, that you may never have realised you had.

And that’s something that you will take with you throughout the rest of your pregnancy, your birth, your post partum period, parenthood, and the rest of your life.

If you are considering signing up for a HypnoBirthing® course, do it. You won’t regret it.

For a full run-down of exactly what’s included in each class, please visit my “What is HypnoBirthing” page.


{ What are other people saying? }

“Janelle’s HypnoBirthing classes taught me so much more than I’d have learnt in any antenatal classes. I was able to birth my daughter calmly, knowing and understanding that my body was doing exactly what it was designed for. The classes also gave my partner the tools to be my ultimate birth companion which allowed me to birth completely without fear!” – Hannah K (Australind). First Time Mum (2015)

“Janelle has been my doula and HypnoBirthing practitioner for 2 of my births. She (and HypnoBirthing) opened my eyes to the incredible, physiological process of birth and that it isn’t something to be feared; but to be embraced. She showed me that birth CAN be beautiful and for me, it absolutely was.” – Sashi H (Bunbury). VBAC Mum (2013 & 2015)

“The Hypnobirthing classes really helped me to appreciate and enjoy my pregnancy and birth and have left me with knowledge, wisdom and tools that I can still use my day to day life. Janelle really is such a genuine, caring and encouraging person who knows A LOT about birth.” – Elyshe R (Australind). First Time Mum (2015)

    { This Sunday }

    Calling all Expectant Mum's and New Mum's!

    I have a HypnoMothering® workshop coming up in Bunbury this Sunday! Places are limited so bookings are essential.

    I'm not sure when the next one will be scheduled, so if you'd like to take part in this workshop, now is a great time to sign up!

    Feel free to share this event with your friends if you know someone who may be interested.

    What is it?...

    HypnoMothering® is a fun, practical, 2.5 hour class which teaches techniques to help deal with the challenges that new Mums face & help ease the transition into motherhood.

    Rather than focusing on "parenting advice" for baby, this class instead discusses things that Mum's deal with themselves, and it offers resources and techniques to help you in those situations (Mum guilt, exhaustion, judgement, loneliness, etc).

    It's a class which is designed by Mum's, for Mums.

    When: 8th of January 2017

    HypnoMothering® for Post Partum Mums: 10am-12.30pm

    HypnoMothering® for Pregnant Mums: 2pm-4.30pm

    Where: Bunbury Counselling, Spencer Street, Bunbury

    Cost: $75 - $100

    Bookings Essential.

    As well as doing the class itself, you also get 8 relaxation tracks to take home with you. The relaxation tracks are specifically designed to help Mum's with issues such as sleep, bonding and anxiety.

    HypnoMothering® is a stand alone class that meshes in well with the HypnoBirthing course, however it can be done by any pregnant Mum or new Mum, regardless of if you have done the HypnoBirthing course or not. You don't need to have done the HypnoBirthing course to do the HypnoMothering® class.

    If you'd like to join me, you can enrol directly from my website here: www.trustbreathebirth.com.au/hypnobirthing/enrol-in-a-class/

    Some of the topics and techniques covered in HypnoMothering® include:

    - Hypnotherapy and other techniques for anxiousness & sleep issues.

    - Tips and techniques to guide new mothers through a gentle transition into motherhood.

    - Discussions and techniques to Empower new mothers to embrace their own unique journey free from outside expectations or judgment.

    - How to make the most of limited sleep or broken sleep cycles

    - How to stay calm and centred through stressful situations

    - How to develop your maternal instincts

    - A safe place for mothers to find focus and clarity amidst the myriad of feelings and challenges that come with motherhood

    If you would like to chat more about any of my classes, feel free to pm me. I'm always happy to answer questions!

    HypnoMothering® Bunbury Group Classes - January 2017

    Trust Breathe Birth - HypnoBirthing in Bunbury & Surrounds shared their event.

    2017 marks the year that I will officially be stepping back from doula-ing.

    HypnoBirthing, birth education and families will continue to be where my heart lies, but with homeschooling my own 4 kiddos, and my hubby starting up his own mobile mechanic business, my time is pretty stretched so I'll be taking a good look at my HypnoBirthing schedule as well.

    Which means that if you'd like to learn HypnoBirthing for your upcoming birth, I can't stress strongly enough, please consider doing my January course to ensure you don't miss out!

    If you're pregnant, due in the first half of 2017 and would like to enjoy your pregnancy and want to spend it bonding with your baby, then you're planning to birth your baby without fear, but with confidence and joy, I highly recommend you join my January HypnoBirthing course so you don't miss out! I'm not sure when my next one will be scheduled after that.

    Please feel free to share this event with your friends.

    I know it's a hard time of year for a family budget, but payment plans are available and I promise you will not regret doing this course. It's totally worth it.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
