Private & Group Hypnobirthing courses that empower you to feel prepared and excited about your birth. Reframe your perception of labour pain & learn active birth techniques that will help you cope well with the sensations of labour.

Byron Bay Hypnobirthing

Do you feel unsure what to expect from birth? Or perhaps even a little bit worried? Or maybe you’ve given birth before and are hoping for a different outcome this time. My Private and Group Hypnobirthing Courses in Byron Bay will help you feel confident in your choices and options, no matter how your birth unfolds.

After your Hypnobirthing course you’ll have a good understanding of your body’s physiology, you will know about your rights options within the Australian Maternity Care system and you will feel confident in using natural techniques that will help you cope really well with the sensations of labour. After completing our course your partner will know how to support you during birth.

And don’t worry, I won’t hypnotise you in our classes – Hypnobirthing teaches a form of self hypnosis that allows your body & mind to relax deeply and quickly as you practice our techniques in your own time.

What my clients say about working with me

“Anna completely transformed mine and my husband’s view of labour. She taught us so much priceless information. Who would have thought that after two days someone’s perspective shifts, I could be EXCITED for labour! We left feeling empowered with a much clearer understanding of the whole process. Thank you Anna, you are AMAZING!’

Birralee and Paul, Lennox Head

Anna was so helpful in the lead up and preparation to our birth. My partner and I did a one on one course with Anna, who reminded me of my own power and assisted in reprogramming subconscious beliefs. Anna’s course was so helpful for my partner, who previously held very fear based beliefs around birth. He was able to step into his role and support me beautifully throughout my labour and birth. I ended up free-birthing at home in the shower before the midwifes could arrive, a raw and potent experience, relying heavily on the tools and techniques Anna taught. — You’ll forever play a part in our peaceful and powerful birth story Anna, thank you.

Carla and Carlos, Byron Bay

Me and my partner took the hypnobirthing course with Anna in preparation for Kai’s arrival. I believe now that it was one of the most important investements we made! We felt truly prepared and calm for birth knowing what to expect and how to ride the swell. My partner was really confident and gave me the energy and assurance I needed. With the journey being a bit of a roller coaster, I felt supported and cared by Anna like a friend. Her warmth, calmness, smile and knowledge helped us get through a couple of bumps. The birth was beautiful and powerful. Even it didn’t go all as we planned, I felt strong and empowered and it was the most magical and wild experience of our lives.

Lucy and Lynden, Brisbane

My partner and I recently did the short hypnobirthing class via zoom and I can honestly say it is the most invaluable thing we have done throughout this entire pregnancy!My partner feels super empowered from it, and knows the tools he can use to best assist me in labour. Anna has boosted my confidence going into for our birth for being prepared for whatever may happen. I cannot thank Anna enough for her way of opening our eyes to what is possible in having a calm & positive birth. I can’t wait to give her feedback after we put her tools in action!

Anna and Will, Byron Bay

We did a BabyMoon hypnobirth course with Anna and absolutely loved it. From the moment we met her we felt comfortable and supported, she is a genuinely caring person with lots of valuable tips and resources to help you be the most prepared possible for labour and delivery.

We believe this course completely changed our approach towards labour and gave us powerful tools to overcome our fears and worries. We learnt how to cope with the pain and how to be supportive as a partner, to know our options at each stage, to be confident and believe in our power to birth our baby safely, and to be open to changes in our birth plan if things didn’t go as planned. Our labour was very long and we are confident we wouldn’t have managed to stay strong and have a natural birth if we didn’t have all those tools which Anna provided. Not everything went to plan but we didn’t stress over it since we were prepared to accept changes. To us this course has been invaluable
