About me...

Hi, my name is Sally.


I am a Hypnobirthing Practitioner, Childbirth Educator, Registered Nurse & mother of two beautiful boys. 


When I fell pregnant with my first son, I was so fearful of childbirth. When I discovered Hypnobirthing, it was incredible how quickly my mindset shifted. Instead of dreading the birth of my baby, I looked forward to it with excitement. I now want to use my experience to help other women face the fears that society has ingrained in them from an early age.


I want to help women in Geelong truly enjoy their pregnancy and have a wonderful birthing experience. The day your baby is born should be the most amazing day of your life. I believe it is the foundation of a positive motherhood journey. A calm and confident birth leads to a calm and confident mother.

What is Hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing is the act of utilizing self-hypnosis during childbirth. 

 

Self-hypnosis is more commonly known in society as creative visualisation, deep relaxation or guided meditation. Many people practice self-hypnosis daily without being aware they are doing so, most commonly, when falling asleep or when trying to overcome anxiety.

 

Hypnobirthing Australia has created The Positive Birth Program for expecting mothers and their support person to engage in quality evidence based childbirth education. Too often we hear the term "a healthy baby is all that matters". Hypnobirthing Australia strives to teach women that they too are important. The mental, emotional and physical wellbeing of the mother matters, it matters ALOT!

 

Hypnobirthing teaches methods that can be used for a range of different birth circumstances. Whether you choose Vaginal or Caesarean,  this program will be extremely beneficial in helping you feel in control and confident during your birth.
