Birth Without Fear
HypnoBirthing® is a Holistic Pre-Natal Education Course that de-programs Mamas of their birth related fears and worries, stemming from societal conditioning, personal experience and/or internal belief systems. It is not a new concept, but rather a ‘rebirth’ of the philosophy of birthing as the female body was designed to and a re-training of the mind through:
Breathwork - Affirmations - Meditation - Hypnosis - Fear Release - Visualisation - Mindset
Reconnecting the womban with her natural birthing wisdom, in preparing for a positive and empowered birth experience
HypnoBirthing mothers birth more comfortably
77% of HypnoBirthing mothers who birthed vaginally did so without epidural anesthesia
45% of HypnoBirthing mothers birthed in under eight hours
17% of HypnoBirthing mothers birthed via C-section, compared with the national average of 32%
9.5% of HypnoBirthing mothers chose to birth in the comfort of their homes (national average is less than 1%)

My HypnoBirthing® Journey
I will never forget the moment my path changed, in relation to the birth of my 2 children.
I saw the fork in the road and I felt myself take the right way…
I was sitting on our lounge and the reality of my pregnancy had just set in. The reality of the journey towards Birth I was already moving along, had kicked in. And the dominating feeling was FEAR. The first thing I did was whip out my laptop and Google ‘fear birth meditation’. I just knew there had to be a way to release all of the conditioning and fear infused beliefs I had set up within myself. And this led me down the rabbit hole, where along the way I picked up the words HypnoBirthing and Birthing Without Fear.
All of a sudden, I knew this moment was going to change my birthing experience, and the way my children were going to enter the world.
I went from being absolutely petrified of Pregnancy and Birth, to birthing both of my children naturally and drug free at home.

Thank you Anita for opening our eyes and our minds to a hypnobirth. The experience left us with our minds blown, fears conquered and hearts fluttering with absolute excitement to our darling baby’s birth. We have strong beliefs after having completed the HypnoBirthing® course that this should be standard practice and promoted substantially amongst new parents who are building their village and their knowledge when entering parenthood. As first time parents, Michael and I battled with general anxious questions and thoughts throughout pregnancy in preparation for Nirvana’s arrival. My background of working within the medical field and with neonates had left me with a skewed perception of what is normal and natural. I had significant fears and barriers that had subsequently built up over the years. What if I have a big baby? What if something goes wrong?
We had danced around model of care for delivery on numerous occasions as a result of society’s focus on sharing negative stories that focus on pain and medical interventions. Or we had been faced with a common trend to seek out the use of drugs as a first point of call. All of this didn’t sit right with us. We worked hard throughout the pre-pregnancy and early stages to minimise chemical exposure so why would we throw that all away at babes first moments of entering into the world! We searched for options to assist us in having the calmest birth as possible given any situation that was to come our way. We had heard about hypnobirthing but were genuinely surprised at how thorough and intricate the course was in both theoretical and practical components.
We loved our weekly sessions, we were excited each week and left each one feeling more and more empowered to speak up, to ask questions, more confident to make informed decisions and also enlightened by what is actually reasonable and necessary when considering medical interventions. I loved the relaxation and meditation components - this was my favourite!Something to unwind to everyday and to escape the hustle and bustle of each days rat race and to prioritise our baby, giving our baby a chance to have some calm time and to condition ourselves to overcome hurdles or barriers of pain or frustration, discomfort or feeling uneasy. Self- care pre birth, the importance of this did scream at me even more once Nirvana arrived.
I saw a huge shift in my husband when he gathered more information and watched several hypnobirths. He couldn’t have been more present or involved throughout each chapter of our journey. I’m so grateful for HypnoBirthing® for this! Nothing beats supporting each other as a team and nothing is sexier or gets that oxytocin firing than your baby daddy building your birth plan with you. I was so confident that he would be the best advocate and voice for us if I couldn’t be and I’m certain that participating in the course had a large part to play in us getting there.
To our practitioner, words can’t describe how happy we were and how invaluable we found Anita as a support. Anita has such an indescribable energy that is gentle and infectious. She made us feel humbled and connected to our baby in spiritual way. She was professional, knowledgeable and imparted her experiences and wisdom off to us so effortlessly in a non-judgemental conversational manner that made us feel at home. Anita was so generous with her time, even when she was so very close to her birth month with her own little babe. She supported us post birth through contact and provided us with so many resources to guide us throughout.
She tailored sessions to specific questions that we had, offered choice on what we wanted to practice more of and offered lots of reassurance. Her aura oozed the room & so many barriers and fears came tumbling down in even just one session. To sum it up, she was a fantastic practitioner who knew her stuff and who went above and beyond to deliver the information to us. She checked in with us after each hypno practice, to ensure that we were making progress. This emphasis on evaluation was truly vital in ensuring our growth & that we were optimally obtaining the most from our time together. Her passionate vibes for HypnoBirthing® were evident and for anyone in a place of wanting to build trust and confidence in what they are learning this was so very comforting. We thank our lucky stars that we were gifted this very special opportunity as the practices & information is something that we still use and turn to. A golden investment for our first baby and into the future for any other babies that we are blessed with. Forever grateful! Love from our little family.
