Practice Name: Hypnobirthing Brisbane
Location of Service: Gordon Park (Brisbane)
Hello and welcome!
I am Caitlin, a childbirth educator, a registered nurse and a mother.
My passion is helping mothers.
Whether they are trying to conceive, pregnant, coping with a newborn or wrangling a toddler, I love hearing their stories, providing advice when I can or at least a shoulder to lean on. Since giving birth, I have provided casual encouragement to other women through my mommy blog http://www.motherdownunder.com.
I am thrilled to be a hypnobirthing practitioner and to be able to positively support women throughout their pregnancy, birth and beyond.
As a nurse, I have come to hypnobirthing from a scientific background, and I believe that empirically, the method makes so much sense. Our bodies are complex, are able to perform extraordinary feats and, just as they are capable of growing a perfect baby without our conscious input, they are also capable of birthing that perfect baby without much conscious effort.
After experiencing a beautiful hypnobirth, I felt so empowered and positive.
I strongly believe that, if your pregnancy and birth are the positive events that you hope they will be, you will enter motherhood feeling confident and better able to cope.
I found that hypnobirthing enabled me to have a relaxed pregnancy, a natural birth and demonstrated that trusting my mothering instincts led to ideal outcomes for me and my baby.
It is truly my wish that every woman has the opportunity to experience the pregnancy and birth that she desires.

I would like to embark on this journey with you.
To provide a safe space to replace any fears of birth with confidence, not just for you, but for your birth partner too.
Help you to achieve your hopes and dreams for your birth, regardless of what course your labour may take.
Offering ongoing support after the course and if you have any residual fears, which I doubt you will, I will gladly come to your home and do a one on one fear release with you and/or your birthing partner.
After having two hypno bubs myself and a background in hypnotherapy, I have been constantly drawn back to hypnobirthing over the last five years. It is something I am deeply passionate about and I am so excited to be part of this birthing evolution. Women need to hear amazing birth stories when pregnant, not the war stories that so many women seem to have.
We need to spread the word that birth is a beautiful and powerful experience, which can be embraced wholeheartedly.
You will become an advocate for Hypnobirthing for years to come. You will be able to pass on the skills you have learnt to friends and family, and even one day, to your own children.
Offering small group classes and private classes in your own home if preferred. Contact me today to discuss payment plans and course options.

Kate is passionate about teaching the Hypnobirthing Australia™ course, because she believes this course gives you the knowledge, tools, support and preparation to achieve this goal.
Kate originally used hypnobirthing to birth her daughter in 2011 and knew then, this was a course all birthing couples should experience. However, it wasn’t until 2 years later, when Kate experienced an accidental unassisted breech homebirth that she realised to what extent the Hypnobirthing Australia™ course helps birthing couples. Kate comments on how amazing the birth of her son was and she credits hypnobirthing techniques and tools to how well the birth went and how well she and her husband were able to cope with the pressure of these special circumstances in the lead up to the birth. It was this turn of events that persuaded Kate to become a Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner, so she could educate and support other couples so they too could be informed and understand their rights as birthing parents to have a wonderful birth experience with no regrets. Click here to view Kate’s birth story.
Along with being a Certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ practitioner, Kate is also a Childbirth Educator (HPCE), trained in the basics of Hypnotherapy, professionally voice trained and… of course, a 2 times hypnobirthing mum : )

Practice Name: Moonglow Hypnobirthing
Location of Services: Mount Tamborine & surrounding area (Gold Coast)
Hello, my name is Lynette and I live on Tamborine Mountain with my husband and three beautiful girls. I discovered Hypnobirthing during my third pregnancy and feel compelled to share the gift of knowledge, support and empowerment Hypnobirthing delivered to me during my pregnancy and labour.
I’ve studied psychology, therapeutic massage and healing dance and believe these fields of knowledge have been integral in my path towards becoming a Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner. Combining all of these skills with my own (and others) birthing experiences, interactions with countless other parents and medical professionals, I truly believe all women can birth feeling calm, empowered and relaxed with Hypnobirthing techniques. I believe these feelings extend towards confident parenting too.
When we as parents feel strong, competent and capable and can trust in our bodies and feel empowered in the birthing process, there’s an unlimited amount of joy that can be experienced in all facets of our lives. It all starts with learning to Hypnobirth!
