I am in my final year of Registered Nursing and have always planned on becoming a Midwife in the future. When I kept hearing about ‘Hypnobirthing’ from my friends and family members that had been using it for their births, I had to know more! I did my research and was blown away with how Hypnobirthing was positively influencing birthing experiences all over the world.
I came across the Hypnobirthing Australia™ course and I was absolutely ecstatic! It was exactly what I had been missing within my education- a little something special to be able to incorporate into my future midwifery practice. It offered such a fresh perspective on birth how I could assist expectant mothers by offering techniques and knowledge that allowed them to make informed and most importantly, empowered decisions.
I am so thrilled to start this new chapter with my Hypnobirthing and Childbirth Education business ‘Happy Birth Day’. It is a project that is very close to my heart and one that I plan to continually expand over the next few years, incorporating different aspects to offer antenatal, birth and postnatal holistic care.
I look forward to meeting inspirational women from all walks of life and sharing their birth experience.

Practice Name: Enhanced Hypnobirthing
Location of Services: Adelaide CBD
Hello and my name is Liza Perks. I am a Master Neuro-Linguistic-Programmer, Master Time Line Therapist, Hypnotherapist and Trainer in all of these modalities. I am very interested in how the mind works and how to get the best out of it for yourself and your loved ones.
I used Hypnosis 16 years ago when I was in late pregnancy with my second son. At this time, Hypnobirthing was not readily available, in fact, I was the only one that I knew who used Hypnosis for childbirth.
I repeated the process with my third child and utilised Hypnosis again during the birth. I was so proud that my babies had such a peaceful start to their lives.
From that moment onwards, I always knew that somehow I would share my experiences and show other women with a similar philosophy as myself, a new way of childbirthing.
I have noticed in the media, pregnant mums have so much information available to them about where to buy the best prams, the most nutritious foods to eat, the best form of exercise whilst pregnant, but only limited amounts of information on calm, in-control instinctual births.
My vision is to equip women and their partners the knowledge and skills needed to make informed decisions around the birthing process.
I am looking forward to joining you in this world wide movement and experience the joy of giving birth naturally and positively.
A peaceful earth can start with every child having a serene birth.

‘I believe that having a positive birth experience starts from within.’
I’m Hannah and I am a Midwife, Childbirth Educator and Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner.
I work with women who are overwhelmed by their upcoming birth, helping them to take away the fear and teaching them how to work with their body to achieve a beautiful experience. I am passionate about providing knowledge and supporting women and their partners through their own journey of pregnancy, birth and early parenting.
As a Hypnobirthing Practitioner I have combined my theoretical knowledge, real life labour and birth experience, and of course the Hypnobirthing training to provide you with an antenatal education program that supports and empowers you to achieve a positive birth experience.
I am currently employed as a Registered Midwife at one of Adelaide’s biggest maternity hospitals, run regular group as well as private Hypnobirthing classes, and also provide consulting services to support women throughout their preconception, pregnancy and postnatal journey.

Practice Name: Enlightened Birth and Beyond
Location of Service: Adelaide- Para Hills (SA)
I believe that mothers, babies and families, all deserve better.
I’m Edriana and I want to help ensure the beginning of your baby’s life and your transition into parenthood is positive and supported.
I commenced my Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) straight out of high school, knowing that I wanted to help people. After watching a close friend go through a traumatic birth experience, I knew I didn’t want that to happen again to her or anyone else.
I completed the Hypnobirthing Australia course as an expectant mother in 2017 and will always look back on the birth of my son as one of the best days of my life. Although I had special circumstances, Lincoln’s birth empowered and astonished me, it lifted me up in a time when I needed to be lifted to make that transition into parenthood.
Motherhood changes you. What I now know is that I want to do more, I want to help mothers, babies and families have better experiences in pregnancy, birth and through the transition into parenthood.
I’ve become a certified Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner because I want to help you on this sacred journey. Please feel free to contact me to find out more.
Practice Name: Michelle Richards
Location of Service: Adelaide, Salisbury East, SA
Hi, my name’s Michelle. I’m a Hypnobirthing mum. Birthing my Son using the tools I learnt from Hypnobirthing prepared me for the most empowering, transformative and even spiritual experiences of my life. I felt so inspired that I wanted to teach this process to other women to help them also have a positive and empowering birth experience.
The power of the mind and body connection during birth is so powerful. Understanding this and incorporating the Hypnobirthing tools can prepare you for a calm and relaxed birth experience.
My intention is to help women release any fears around birth, to equip them with powerful the tools to unlock the inbuilt power of their body, and to empower them with the knowledge of their birthing options.
I believe all women should have the opportunity to experience a beautiful, peaceful and positive birth.
Practice Name: Go Yoga
Location of Service: Brighton (SA)
Jackie has been working in the health and wellness industry since 1993 in her roles as a medical scientist, fitness instructor and Yoga teacher. For years she has creatively integrated Yoga’s ancient mind and body wisdom to help women lead a healthy, active and peaceful pregnancy in her antenatal yoga classes. She has literally shared in hundreds of birth stories, including her own to twin daughters.
However, she has also witnessed so much fear, ignorance and confusion surrounding childbirth and the decision-making and organisation of maternity care. Jackie was eager to add hypnobirthing to her qualifications so she can give mothers the essential tools, support and confidence they need to follow their instincts and make conscious choices throughout pregnancy and birth.
Due to her diverse background, Jackie’s classes stem from the unique perspective of integrating age-old holistic birthing knowledge with the advancing science of childbirth. Mothers gain deep understanding of birth physiology plus respect for the hidden powers of their bodies. Her classes provide mothers and partners with an antenatal education program that supports and empowers women to have a positive and sacred birth experience.
Jackie runs hypnobirthing classes in a lovingly-built studio behind her home in Brighton, South Australia.

Megan is a Registered Nurse, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and Medicare – Endorsed Midwife with over 20 years experience providing comprehensive, holistic and evidence-based care to families. During this time Megan has gained extensive experience in providing pregnancy, postnatal, newborn and breastfeeding support to guide many women and families to succeed in early parenting.

Megan is a Childbirth Educator and holds a Certificate in Perinatal Mental Health as well as skills in acupressure, gentle myofascial release and is a certified HypnoMothering Practitioner.
After the birth of her child, Megan realised the fragmented care within the constraints of hospitals/obstetric care meant that often women and families were not set up to succeed in birth or beyond. Women were scared and coerced into decisions that they were poorly educated to make. The huge void in postnatal support meant women were poorly equipped for success. She realised that women needed to feel nurtured, listen to and supported to develop the skills necessary to grow and thrive in pregnancy and in their new parenting role.
Megan began her successful private practice- Adelaide Lactation Consultants & Midwifery to change the way care is offered by supporting and enriching families on their journey. A flexible approach to midwifery care means women can find a care option to suit them! Megan believes that Hypnobirthing will be a valuable addition to her care options available.
