Practice Name: Christina Dewhirst – Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner
Location of Service: East Lismore (NSW)
Christina lives and works in the Northern Rivers region of NSW. She holds a Social Science degree and has a background in counselling, family mediation and relationship education. Christina has given birth to five children (now grown-up) and believes that the experience of birth has been an incredible and powerful experience for her personally and that the nature of birth and the early transition period is an extremely important time for women, their partners, and baby alike.
Being passionate about birth and early attachment and bonding, Christina continued in her education journey to complete a degree in Midwifery. During this process, she witnessed numerous births and supported women in their pregnancy, birthing, and postpartum journey. When she encountered the Hypnobirthing Australia Program she was convinced that this antenatal education program could be of immense benefit to women and their partners in that it provides women with comprehensive evidence-based resources and tools to navigate their birthing experience, work with their body’s innate ability and be in a positive and deeply relaxed state to have their best birth regardless of the setting.
Christina is committed to empowering women with knowledge for their decision making and to work with their bodies, and mind affording them a framework for a positive birthing experience.
