Hypnobirthing Australia Supportive Caregivers Training - Caregiver with Birthing Mother

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 educators, doulas and childbirth/pregnancy professionals – 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.

Here what participants of recent workshops are saying about this course!

” It was a great day and I feel so much better prepared to support hypnobirthing couples in the future. Highly recommend the day to any other birth professionals considering attending.” 

~ Melissa, Student Midwife

I attended the caregivers seminar today and would recommend to any midwife or caregiver in labour who is open to learning new ways and supporting those women who choose to hypno birth. It will definitely help me, I learnt so much.”  

~ Candice , Public Hospital Midwife

“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
