HypnoBirthing® NZ Childbirth Education Classes
for a Positive & Joyful Birth Experience

I’m so pleased you’re exploring the idea of using HypnoBirthing for the birth of your baby. Giving birth is a momentous moment in your life & should be a joyful & beautiful experience. HypnoBirthing provides the tools and techniques to assist you in having this kind of birth. I have two children of my own &  truly believe all babies should come into the world in an atmosphere of tranquility and calm & for all parents the birthing experience should be joyous and positive whatever turn their birthing may take. I have been teaching HypnoBirthing in Christchurch for the last fifteen years & have worked with hundreds of couples, I now run my classes from the beautiful location of Methven. I also train all the new HypnoBirthing educators in NZ including midwives and therefore bring a wealth of experience & knowledge to the classes.  You will find my classes educational, empowering, fun & very relaxing…….to find out more submit the form at the bottom of the page – I look forward to seeing you there, Stephanie

“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!”

What is HypnoBirthing®?

HypnoBirthing® is a comprehensive childbirth education program that educates and empowers couples for a positive, calm and stress-free birthing experience, regardless of how, where and with whom they are planning on birthing. It provides couples with education, tools and techniques to help ensure they are on track for the best possible birth outcome, and to experience birth in a more comfortable manner. Couples learn how to prepare their mind and body with special breathing techniques, self-hypnosis, deep relaxation, visualisation and a positive mindset. It is a program that considers the psychological as well as the physical well-being of the mother, her birth partner and the newborn. It allows parents to approach birth and parenting knowing their options, making informed choices and confident to take control to ensure they achieve the most positive birth, no matter what turn their birthing takes.
Classes consist of 12.5hrs of tuition in a small group. As part of the course fee couples also receive a copy of the HypnoBirthing book, 5 relaxation recordings, scripts and handouts. Private sessions can also be arranged.
