Hi and welcome to my website, It's so great to see that you are looking into your options when it comes to preparing for your birth.
My name is Shari Lyon and I am a certified Hypnobirthing Australia™️ Practitioner & mother of 2 where I live on the beautiful Gold Coast, QLD
After moving from the Gold Coast to the Gladstone region in 2012 with my family, I saw the need for more pregnancy and birth support to be made available to couples of Gladstone and Rockhampton.
I have personally used the Hypnobirthing Australia™️ techniques during my own 2 births. My first and life changing experience was with my son at a Birth Centre on the Gold Coast, Australia and my second in a beautiful home birth where I even filmed my birth for you to see me using the techniques I teach within my courses and so you can see just how amazing birth can be. Watch my birth by clicking here.
I first studied to be a practitioner through the American Institute in the Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing however after hearing that Hypnobirthing Australia's Melissa Spilsted was creating her own unique Australian program I jumped at the chance to be apart of this group as Melissa had personally taught my husband and I Hypnobirthing for the birth of my son.
I have now been teaching this amazing program to couples all over Central Queensland for 4 years and I have now taught hundreds of couples from all over Australia. I have also presented and been asked to talk at the local hospitals as well as organised free information nights and held Gladstone's first ever Pregnancy, Birth & Baby Expo.
I have since relocated back to the Gold Coast where I now offer Group and Private Classes as well as working directly for Hypnobirthing Australia™ 2 days a week.
I am an award winning practitioner and I was awarded one of only 4 awards given out by Hypnobirthing Australia at the Annual Hyponobirthing Australia conference 3 years in a row (2015,2016 & 2017). This is something that I am so proud of as I work very hard to spread the word about positive birthing.
I have been featured in a number of stories run by the Gladstone Observer & Channel 7 News. My hope is to improve awareness of women’s birth rights and to help educated them on the options available to them during their pregnancy and birth.
I am also the director and founder of NurtureHub.com.au "Australia's Pregnancy, Birth & Baby Network" which is a national directory website where you can easily find local practitioners, services or products to help you through your journey from preconception, pregnancy, birth & beyond.
Most of all though... I am a mum who want’s to help other couples have the same birth experience that I did, so if you would like to learn more about how I can help you please spend some time looking around my website as you will find some very useful information as well as resources to help you along your journey.
