What is the 'Positive Birth Program' all about – and how can hypnobirthing help me?
The Positive Birth Program is a complete antenatal education program that is supportive of all birthing people and all births. It is evidence-based and will empower you to adopt an ownership mentality of your birth, no matter how it unfolds.
Research shows that birth classes, such as the Positive Birth Program that focus on evidence-based techniques for pain relief can significantly reduce medical intervention rates and decrease or fully eliminate fears surrounding childbirth.
"We are the only species of mammal that doubts our ability to give birth. It's profitable to scare women about birth. But let's stop it. I tell women: Your body is not a lemon." Ina May Gaskin
There is nothing outlandish or alternative about Hynobirthing and the Positive Birth Program. It is purely education that is centred around the birthing person, teaching them how our birthing muscles are designed to function on a physiological level, how instilled fear and anxieties have impaired their functionality over the decades and how we can call upon a scientifically researched and backed toolkit for birth.
Positive Birth Program focuses on techniques such as self-hypnosis, optimal labouring positions, breathing, light touch, acupressure, massage, visualisation, movement, how to work with your hormones, the role of the birth partner, birth planning and so much more.

Birth is incredible. Birth is magical. Birth is transformational.
It is a memory that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.
Your birth experience is not just something that happened to you and then it is over. It is about who you are, who you become, how you define yourself, how you transcend and how you proceed into your future.
Hypnobirthing is in an investment in yourself and in preparing for the most positive birth you can have. It is a program that allows you to prepare yourself for the eventualities of birth, understand your options and gives you the toolkit for labour.
The toolkit can be utilised whether the birth is intervention free, considered high or low risk or requires interventions along the way. Hypnobirthing and pain relief are not mutually exclusive. Shame is not a circle we operate in. This program is geared towards empowerment and so it is relevant to all birthing people, first-time or experienced and is passionate about being for all births.
If you want to prevent the fear-tension-pain cycle, prepare your mindset, gain confidence in making informed decisions, help your birth partner understand their role and have the most positive and calm birth no matter the circumstance then this is the right antenatal education for you.
You already have everything you need to birth your baby. Your body is capable and designed to do this. Do not let fear sabotage you birth!
