What is HypnoBirthing®

HypnoBirthing® is a method and philosophy of birthing that teaches the birthing mother to call upon her body’s own natural relaxant to lessen discomfort during childbirth.  The result is a satisfying, calm and stress-free birth!  Even if medical intervention is necessary.

When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.

My partner and I had our first baby recently and we experienced such an amazing journey through HypnoBirthing. Being a first-time mum can be a very scary and overwhelming feeling to a lot of women and the thought of birth can give most women anxiety. Through HypnoBirthing with Julie, I was able to look at the pregnancy journey without fear and get rid of any anxieties I had about the delivery. Julie went above and beyond for us not only through teaching us everything we needed to know before the birth, but actually during the birth as well. She came to the hospital when I was giving birth and stayed with us for 12 plus hours helping me until our beautiful boy was born. Before Julie arrived at the hospital I was in a whole different state of mind and was very close to asking for the epidural. As soon as Julie came in she started getting me into a hypnotic state through her visualisations, light touch, massage and calm breathing and I was able to deliver my son naturally like we had planned. She was by far the best thing we invested in for the whole pregnancy journey and I could not recommend her more.
