Frequently asked questions about HypnoBirthing


Is HypnoBirthing suitable for everyone?

HypnoBirthing is for all births whether they be at home, hospital or at a birthing centre.

At what stage in my pregnancy should I attend classes?

It’s recommended that you start classes anytime after around 20 weeks pregnant however if you are later on in your pregnancy that’s absolutely fine too.

Does my husband/partner have to attend?

The birthing companion whether that be your husband, partner, friend or other family member attends the classes as well so they can learn to support you throughout your labour. If you don’t have anyone attending the birth with you, you are more than welcome to bring your midwife or attend the classes on your own.

How much do the classes cost?

Group sessions cost $475 per couple this includes 12.5hrs of tuition, the HypnoBirthing book, 5 relaxation recordings, scripts and handouts. Drinks & snacks are provided.

For private sessions – Please enquire.

When is the next class?

I am currently running classes to demand, they are generally run over three Saturdays from 10am until 2.30pm with a couple of weeks between each class to give couples chance to practice the techniques. Please contact me to register your interest for the next class.

Throughout the birth I felt calm, in control and confident in my own abilities. Thank you so much Stephanie for your wonderful classes, we really enjoyed them, it was the best money we have ever spent!

I would highly recommend HypnoBirthing to anyone who is pregnant. I found Stephanie to be a wonderfully caring and supportive tutor.
