What is the Difference Between ‘Hypnobirthing’ and ‘Calmbirth’

What is the Difference Between ‘Hypnobirthing’ and ‘Calmbirth’

The Hypnobirthing Australia™ Program is a unique and very up-to-date program, different to Calmbirth and other hypnobirthing programs. It is a stand-alone course which is written by a childbirth education specialist. Our results speak for themselves. ? 

The training resources that parents receive when attending the course are high quality and relevant. We also complement the training with a wealth of online resources for further practice, this can be easily accessed by parents via an app.

We do not shy away from the hypnosis – as it is a wonderful tool to help reduce fear and reprogram our subconscious prior to birth. It comes in very handy during the intensity of birth.

Parents and educators who have attended other programs have often commented that our program resonates better with them. Perhaps it is because our emphasis is on a ‘positive’ birth above all else. Even when we do need medical intervention, we feel empowered to birth our baby on our terms. Some of us are quiet and others roar our baby into the world – but it is our terms as we draw on our empowerment, preparation, love and strength.

 How Can People Learn Hypnobirthing Techniques?

Our program is very accessible (face-to-face, Zoom or online) and over the past decade, we have grown to become Australia’s most popular childbirth education program. We are offered independently through childbirth educators throughout the country and also through many health services and hospitals. More parents attend our childbirth courses than any other in the country.

Head over to the Hypnobirthing Australia™ website to access lots of free resources and inspirational birth stories and videos.

We have face-to-face and online versions of the course for ALL types of birth. Our flagship course is the ‘Positive Birth Program’ and we also have our world-first Positive Caesarean Course. We are unapologetically, unashamedly, all about POSITIVE birth regardless of how our baby comes into the world. ?

 What’s the Secret?

How to prepare for a positive birth shouldn’t be a secret! The reason why our program has risen in popularity is – it works! Parents love the empowerment that comes with preparing well for birth. The Hypnobirthing Australia™ course is down-to-earth, doable, and relatable and everything we teach is backed up with current evidence. Knowledge is power. Caregivers (midwives, doctors, obstetricians) also recommend this course because they can see the difference it makes.

There is no more important investment that you can make into your preparation for birth than quality and effective childbirth education. If you buy the wrong style of pram or cot, you can simply sell it and buy a more suitable one… but you can’t re-do your birth!

We, as mamas, want to know in our hearts that we have given our baby the best, most positive birth experience possible with the circumstances that are given. No regrets. Birth should be one of the most empowering experiences of your life – and it can be. Let us show you how.
