How much is a hypnobirthing class?
Pregnancy and labour isn’t always an easy journey but we at Little Bird Flies believe that it’s one of the most fulfilling chapters in a person’s life. Unfortunately, there is this negative connotation that surrounds birth and the pain caused during labour that we’ve made it our mission to change this perspective and help women and birthing people rediscover their birthing prowess. Rediscover their true strength and arm them and their birthing partners with the tools and confidence to trust and move with their incredible labouring bodies to bring life into this world just as they were designed to do. Hypnobirthing is about listening to you and your fears and helping you to set them free.
One of the best ways to usher in a positive birthing experience is to explore Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth course. It can offer you the tools and training to give you an empowered birthing experience for yourself, your birthing partner, and the little bundle of joy on the way. Hypnobirthing classes come at a cost but you will quickly realise that they are more than worth the price. These can vary from one certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitionerand Childbirth Educator to the next but ultimately, we’re all after one main goal – your wellbeing.
What is Hypnobirthing?
Hypnobirthing is designed to prepare expecting parents for a birth filled with confidence, knowledge and power. The term hypnobirthing at its core aims to help expecting mums and their birth partners with surrendering to the fears and anxieties they may have around their birth. When the body and mind are calm and working together, labour and birth can occur with greater ease since the body is not trying to fight the natural, physiological process. Hypnobirthing is about creating a toolkit filled with a variety of techniques and strategies that will help you to relax and surrender to the incredible feat of the human body that is labour and birth. Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth Course is also about ensuring that your birth partner has the confidence to support you in any moment, no matter the circumstance.

Benefits of hypnobirthing
- Hypnobirthing techniques are ultimately focused on maintaining calm mentally and physically. This can help you manage stress hormones, such as adrenalin, and reduce anxiety. Working with these feelings will help you to feel more grounded and confident in your ability to work with your body throughout your labour and birth.
- Stress hormones can be counterproductive to the natural chemicals your body produces during labour. By managing stress, the crude production of oxytocin (your surge inducing hormone) isn’t interrupted; allowing your body to labour as it was designed to do- undisturbed.
- Hypnobirthing will make you feel more empowered. It will fill you with the knowledge and confidence to create your own birth story and help rewrite previous birth experiences.
- The things you learn in hypnobirthing classes can benefit you after birth, too, and in some cases, it lowers the chance of postnatal depression.
- Hypnobirthing will absolutely help your birth partner play a more active role during your labour.
The techniques involved with hypnobirthing can be useful for both you and your birth partner even after the labour process. Positive affirmations can be a very powerful tool for expecting partners to have an empowered birthing process but it can also help with other aspects of their life post-labour and birth, including helping them to navigate their journey through parenthood. Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth Course is not only useful for preparing you for labour and birth but the tools and techniques you learn will help you navigate your antenatal journey more smoothly too!!
Does hypnobirthing work for everyone?
We get this question all the time and we understand the concern. Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth course is designed for everyone. Midwives in Australia’s maternity hospitals can confirm that they can see the difference and this is the entire reason Melissa decided to start teaching Hypnobirthing Australia’s Positive Birth program. There is this belief that women and birthing people have in themselves after completing a hypnobirthing course that exudes a birth room.
Every person will come out of a hypnobirthing course with the tools that they need and want- Whatever your goals or desires are, the tools you learn will support you and your birthing journey, no matter the circumstances.
Parents and carers who have invested in a hypnobirthing class with Melissa state that they:
- Felt more in control
- More calm and confident, and able to let go of their fears
- Labour with as little medical intervention as possible
- Feelings of excitement about birth rather then terrified
- Could advocate for themselves confidently and be key decision makers throughout their pregnancy, labour and post-partum period.
