What is HypnoMothering®?

HypnoMothering® is a fun, practical, 2.5 hour class, which teaches mothers easy and fast self-hypnosis techniques to make the most of limited sleep, keep calm and balanced on challenging days, and find focus and mindfulness amidst the myriad of feelings that mothers face.

Rather than focusing on how things “should” go after you have had a baby, it instead teaches how to not just survive your post partum time, but also enjoy it!


Is HypnoMothering® part of the HypnoBirthing® course?

HypnoMothering® is the perfect class to complement the HypnoBirthing® classes (regardless of if these were done with me or with another practitioner), but it is actually also open to all pregnant mothers, and new mothers, regardless of if you’ve done the HypnoBirthing® course or not.

Although it isn’t part of the original HypnoBirthing® course, it is approved and encouraged by HypnoBirthing® International as an extra 2.5 hour class, meant to complement their original 5 classes.


Can I do the HypnoMothering® class if I haven’t done the HypnoBirthing® course?

Of course! It is a stand-alone class, and although it works well with the HypnoBirthing® course, it can be done without any other HypnoBirthing experience.


When do I do the HypnoMothering® class?

The HypnoMothering® class can be done when you are pregnant, or after your baby has been born. I teach the classes separately for pregnant mothers, and post partum mothers, as the two classes vary slightly, due to the mothers having different needs at these two times. However if you have done the class when you were pregnant, you don’t need to do the post partum one, as it covers the same topics, just from different angles.

Personally, I think it’s a fantastic class to do while you are still pregnant, as it will help give you tips on how to plan for your postpartum time, giving you a great head start. However if you didn’t get a chance to do the class while you were pregnant, you’ll still get a LOT out of doing this class after baby is born.

I’ve had 4 kids, and I did the practitioner training when my youngest was 2.5 and I spent the whole time in awe, thinking, “I wish I had’ve done this when I was pregnant!”. The class is such a great resource for planning your post partum and helping you deal with issues that come with becoming a Mum.


Do Dad’s attend the HypnoMothering® class too?

No. The HypnoMothering® class is just for Mum’s.

Here’s an excerpt from a blog post here, where one Dad explains why, in his view, this course needs to be just for Mum’s…

“A few months ago I had our kids (twin toddlers) by myself for the afternoon, and I took them to a 3 year old’s Birthday party. I was treated like a rock star. “Wow, Dave, I don’t know how you do it! Are you OK? Can I get you a beer? Can I take one of the kids from you for a while?” It was fantastic. I didn’t milk it (no one likes an ungracious underdog), but boy did I appreciate it.

When I got home I let slip to Kira what had happened (perhaps in response to her pointing out I hadn’t done the dishes… I forget the specifics…). Big mistake. She was mad. I didn’t understand why. So she told me. “Do you know what the response would have been if I had taken the kids to a party? ‘Oh hey Kira, thanks for coming.’ No one would have offered me a beer! No one would have even thought it was out of the ordinary. It would have just been expected.”

And she was right, I’ve seen the opposite – Mums are just expected to handle it. Anything Dads do in terms of nurture, especially in those first few months, is still considered ‘extra-credit’ as far as society is concerned. For Mums, doing the same thing barely gets them a ‘C’ grade – generally they have to face lots of voices (either physical or disembodied in Social Media) telling them that they deserve an ‘F’. And all this on top of the physical things they are dealing with.

That’s why Mums, especially new Mums, still need their own resources when it comes to nurture. Dads may now share the load, but we don’t share the expectation. Even if we put that expectation on ourselves, or our families do, we don’t have society judging us every moment, whispering in our ear that we’re not good Mothers even when we’ve hit a nurturing home run. Don’t get me wrong, we have our own problems, but this isn’t one of them. So let’s let Mums have their Mum resources, after all, they deserve a ticker-tape parade every day.”

That’s the best explanation I’ve heard of why this class is for Mum’s only.



How much does the HypnoMothering® class cost?

If you’ve done the HypnoBirthing course with me, I offer the HypnoMothering class at a reduced rate of $75 per Mother if it’s done in a group setting, or $100 if it’s done privately.

If you haven’t done the HypnoBirthing course with me, the cost is $100 per Mother if it is done in a group setting, or $150 if it’s done privately.

If you're preparing for a positive birth experience, it's SO important to choose a wonderful, positive, informative birth education program to help you fully understand birth and mentally prepare yourself and your partner for labour, birth and parenthood.

HypnoBirthing is a full birth education program, which explains exactly what happens with your body and baby during labour and birth. Knowing this will allow you to work with your labour, and often love the experience, rather than just enduring it. HypnoBirthing is a full, holistic birth education program which runs as one 2.5 hour class a week for 5 weeks.


What is HypnoBirthing®?

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 confidence and tips (and even a cheat sheet!) 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 have never 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.


Private classes are also available to be booked any time and can also be booked by clicking the link above.
