Melissa teaches a limited number of in-person, hypnobirthing classes face-to-face group sessions. Group hypnobirthing classes in Brisbane, Paddington and hypnobirthing classes Gold Coast (Robina) are available for parents on various dates throughout the year.
During these unprecedented times with COVID-19, it is more important than ever before that parents have access to high quality, evidence-based, independent childbirth education that also incorporates coping skills for labour and birth (stress reduction, deep relaxation).
You can scroll down for scheduled dates of upcoming hypnobirthing group sessions. These classes are currently scheduled to be run face-to-face at the venue specified – however, if there are changes due to government health laws at the time, we can easily adapt them to be run via live webinar. Either way, we will ensure that you have every opportunity to be well prepared leading up to your birth.
Melissa also offers a limited amount of private online sessions to accompany the Hypnobubs® Hypnobirthing Online Course (Premium Package) which is designed for both natural and caesarean birth and Hypnobubs® Confidence+ Package specially designed for parents who have been told that they require a caesarean birth for the safe delivery of their baby.

“I felt in control during the entire labour and birth. My partner and I enjoyed the birth process so much, and attribute this to our hypnobirthing preparation. It was a wonderful experience, and beautiful birth. I’m so happy we invested in and committed to the hypnobirthing course and philosophy. Thank you Melissa for teaching us!” Hannah and Ben
