Learn about how physiological birth works and hands on hypnobirthing techniques; this is also an opportunity to spend a couple of hours a week bonding with your birth partner and baby in a safe and comfortable environment at a private venue in Langwarrin.
Each group class consists of weekly 2.5 hour sessions over 5 consecutive weeks. There are also options for tailored classes to meet your individual needs, with flexible timings. All materials are included.
What is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing helps to achieve a positive, calm and empowered birth by releasing emotions which lead to tension and fear, to enable you to birth in a state of deep relaxation—awake, aware and fully in control. This course is an evidence-based education program that teaches you and your birth partner everything you need to know to navigate pregnancy, birth, and beyond with confidence.
These techniques support you to appreciate the benefits of calm, instinctive birthing and a powerful bonding experience for mother, baby, and birth partner — benefits that can last a lifetime by creating secure attachment between you and your baby, and helping to develop positive parenting skills and practices.
We learn and practice:
• Breathing techniques and positions that create a state of relaxation and comfort
• Positive visualisations and affirmations to help you feel connected to your baby
• Methods to encourage optimal positioning and a natural start to labour
• What to expect during labour and birth, and how your body and baby will work with you
• How to manage anxieties, limiting beliefs or fear surrounding birth and parenting
• What you need to know about navigating the fourth trimester as new parents, including tips for feeding, sleeping and caring for baby
• How your partner and other family members can support you effectively in pregnancy, labour & birth, and your journey as a new mum.
"Natalie is amazing! My husband and I gained so much from the Hypnobirthing classes. Such a positive experience, we learned a lot and had a relaxed environment to share experiences and ask questions. Natalie has such a beautiful calm presence about her. She is highly knowledgeable about labour and birth but also the whole pregnancy journey. We gained invaluable practical advice about labour, plenty of reassurance and extremely helpful guidance for my husband on how to help during this time and post partum. I would highly recommend Open Circle Wellbeing to any pregnant woman and partner."

"Natalie is absolutely amazing. We did hypnobirthing classes with her and also hired her as our doula. I really wanted that extra support for our birth so that we had someone with us who we knew and trusted. Best decision we made!! She was/has been such an amazing support, going above and beyond and has felt like a true friend of ours. The birth of our first child was incredible, extremely speedy (under 4hours!) and everything I wanted it to be and more. I didn’t even realise I was in labour for half of it and I really think that hypnobirthing and Nat’s support helped with this! I was able to labour at home which is something I dreamed of and then made it to the hospital just in time to birth. Having that extra support before, during and afterwards is honestly the best thing ever! I highly recommend Nat's hypnobirthing classes! If we have a second child, we know who we will be going to! You’re the best Nat!"
