“Hypnotherapy in childbirth refers to the use of hypnotherapy to assist in the birthing process. This practice, known as hypnobirthing, functions on the premise that most labour-related pain is as a result of fear and tension, which can be diminished or completely eliminated with hypnotherapy.” – Wikipedia.

As a Registered Midwife, Childbirth Educator and Mother of 4, I passionately believe that the birth of a child should be the most beautiful and empowering time in a couple’s life,
Like most hospital midwives I was “thrown into” teaching antenatal classes, but it quickly became my passion and I decided to do formal childbirth educator training. This dramatically changed my style of teaching and approach to prenatal education. However after the birth of my 4th child, my first with a private obstetrician, I realised there was a real need to step outside the system and provide a truly independent childbirth education service. So I started ‘Birth Savvy…Ask for what you want’ in early 2012 and now run seminars, workshops, and private sessions in Perth WA.
I realised how hard it can be to find your confidence and voice in today’s birthing environment and that sometimes information isn’t enough. What couples need is specific techniques, tools and strategies to enable them to ask for and get the birth they truly want.
This is why I am delighted to be a Certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner. I am now able to provide the programme that gives couples the best chance at achieving that beautiful, empowered birth I wish for all women and their babies.
Through my passion I continue to push for better births in Perth and I am often asked for my opinions by journalists for television news, radio, newspapers and magazines.
I also write a blog on my website www.birthsavvy.com.au.
“ It was amazing and all the hospital staff were commenting on it like they do in the hypnobirthing movies. I am feeling very proud that I made it through and I’m so thankful to you Pip, for all your help and advice.” ~Sarah
The Hypnobirthing Australia™ program is uniquely designed for Australian mothers and their birth companions. Hypnobirthing Australia™ classes prepare you with the knowledge, confidence and tools you need to birth calmly.
The ‘hypno’ part of ‘Hypnobirthing’ refers to the hypnotherapy that we use during the program to release fears and condition ourselves to release endorphins at times during our birth. With the help of hypnotherapy, the birth of your baby can be a more calm and relaxed experience. One where you are in the drivers seat, rather than feeling like a passenger. This is likely to reduce the need for interventions during your birthing.
When a mother and her birth companion are able to approach their birth without fear and with knowledge, good support, and tools for the birth – then their birthing can be a positive and empowering experience.
Hypnobirthing Australia™Classes are held at Vivacious Living Centre on a Wednesday evening.
The 4 week programme commences on the first Wednesday evening of each month.
