We are all working with the same goal in mind – to help birthing mothers and babies achieve a safe and positive birth experience.
Caregivers play an integral role throughout pregnancy and birth, and the Hypnobirthing Australia™ program recognises the difference that supportive caregivers can make to the outcome.
That is why we designed this course especially for you – medical professionals (midwives, obstetricians, doctors, nurses), childbirth educ
ators and doulas – who wish to learn the basic philosophy and tools of hypnobirthing so that you can best support parents who choose to use this method of birthing.
“I now feel more prepared to assist women choosing hypnobirthing. In fact, I had 4 home births in 48 hours and 2 were hypnobirthing. The workshop gave me the knowledge to be there for them without interfering with the process. It was wonderful. Thank you so much for providing such an informative course.” ~ Jayne CMP Midwife.
Participants of this intensive training are not qualified to teach the Hypnobirthing Australia Program – however if you are interested in our Practitioner Training please click here for more info.
This special intensive training is specifically designed to equip caregivers with an understanding of the hypnobirthing philosophy, language and tools that you can utilise in your very important role of supporting birthing mothers and families.
