Hello! My name is Shelley and I am a registered nurse, mother and Hypnobirthing Australia Certified Practitioner.
I have been a practicing registered nurse since 2010 and have post graduate qualifications in Acute Care Nursing. After having my own children I naturally became interested in pregnancy and birth.
I was drawn to the Hypnobirthing Australia Positive Birth Program as it aligns with my own philosophy of birth, its reputation (thousands of rave reviews!) and evidence-based practice.
I aim to support and facilitate the learning of mothers and their birth partners in order for them to have a once in a life time experience filled with positive memories.
I am up to date with all immunisations including influenza and COVID-19.
I am excited to meet you and help play a part in creating a very special birth day!
Hypnobirthing is a much about its philosophy as it is about techniques. We acknowledge that birth is a normal physiological event just like many other bodily functions. Negative thoughts and fear can interrupt the process. When we approach birth without fear, with good knowledge, support and tools - then the experience can be POSITIVE and EMPOWERING.
Hypnobirthing will help you:
Hypnobirthing mothers can condition themselves to enter a deep state of relaxation. At times they appear to be asleep but are actually aware of whats going on, focused and in control. This deep relaxation reduces the bodies tension and in turn the intensity.
Your birth partner actively involved in hypnobirthing and will become your advocate. If you experience difficulties with the intensity or your birth takes a different course your partner will know how to help you.
Hypnobirthing is for everyone and if there was ever a time to be prepared it is now!

You can enrol in a hypnobirthing course anytime. However, the ideal time is between 20-33 weeks. This will allow you plenty of time to practice before the birth day.
The methods used in the Hypnobirthing Australia course are based on the premise that, the woman is healthy, with an uncomplicated pregnancy with a healthy baby and should be able to birth in a comfortable manner without unnecessary intervention. We focus on the joy of birth and look forward to our birthing day. When women understand that pain is caused by constrictor hormones (created by fear), they learn to release fear and create endorphins instead. Endorphins are the ‘feel good hormones’ that we naturally produce when we are calm and happy. We also change our perceptions. Instead of thinking of a ‘long, painful labour’ – we replace this thought with expectations of a more comfortable birthing.
Please bring your birth partner/companion to hypnobirthing classes. Your birth partner can be who ever you think will provide you with the best support. You are also welcome to come alone (although you are never really alone now).
Yes! You and your baby will benefit from the relaxation during pregnancy. The skills and can be adapted to the situation at hand. You will find yourself better able to remain calm and in control. There is also a Positive Cesarean course.
Hypnobirthing does not promise pain-free birthing. Many mothers say their birth was relatively pain-free or it is more easily managed. When fear is eliminated, the pelvic muscles relax, birth can occur in a shorter period of time and more comfortably. Relaxed mothers produce more endorphins - your bodies natural opiates. Mothers may experience pressure and tightening, they work with their body through the sensations.
Hypnotherapy or hypnobirthing is about reprogramming how we think. There will be no swinging watches or anything mysterious going on!
Often a state of hypnosis is described as:
While you are in a state of hypnosis you are more likely to be open to change. We unknowingly enter hypnosis when doing things such as getting "lost" in a movie or "zoning out" while driving.
