  • All participants are provided with a professionally printed Folio of resources. In addition to this, you receive several professionally recorded Australian accent practice tracks, and eBook to support you in your preparation for your positive birth.
  • Hypnobirthing classes are structures in such a way that the birth partner is encouraged to attend. In saying this, if you are attending the classes on your own, that is completely fine, I will step in as your support person during the course.
