Supportive Caregiver Training

We are all working with the same goal in mind – to help birthing mothers and babies achieve a safe and positive birth experience. My classes and the program is growing in popularity and this year alone I have already taught 200 couples and for 2020 from all over Australia and the world.


More and more mothers and birth partners are choosing the Hypnobirthing Australia™/Hypnobubs® program as their primary childbirth education program and from the comments I receive from my parents after having their antenatal appointments it sounds like you too would like to learn more about how you can support parents who choose to use these techniques.

Caregivers play an integral role throughout pregnancy and birth, and the Hypnobirthing Australia™ ™program recognises the difference that supportive caregivers can make to the outcome. 

That is why Hypnobirthing Australia™/Hypnobubs® designed this course especially for you – medical professionals (midwives, obstetricians, doctors, nurses), childbirth educators, doulas and childbirth/pregnancy professionals – who wish to learn the basic philosophy and tools of hypnobirthing so that you can best support parents who choose to use this method of birthing.

Participants of this intensive training are not qualified to teach the Hypnobirthing Australia™ Program – please note that this training is designed for support only. 

This special intensive training is specifically designed to equip caregivers with an understanding of the hypnobirthing philosophy, language and tools that you can utilise in your very important role of supporting birthing mothers and families.

This course is endorsed by the Australian College of Midwives as CPD Recognised Activity (10 CPD Hours).

  • Introduction to a positive mindset of hypnobirthing

  • Causes of fear and how it affects labour (psychological, emotional, physical)
