Hi there! I'm Bri , creator and founder of Limestone Coast Hypnobirthing. As a passionate Midwife, I have nurtured, cared and supported various Hypnobirthing Australia women and birth partners in both Melbourne and now in my lovely country hometown of Mount Gambier. Throughout practicing as a Midwife- I believe being a Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner is my exact match and aligns with my own Midwifery care I provide daily. Working as a Registered Midwife I have supported many women and birth partners and there is one thing I’m driven to do- ensure women and birth partners are provided with choice and are able to positively enjoy and love their birthing journey, in any way that may be! I’m a huge believer in a healthy and positive mindset to enable women not to face birth with fear, but to love their birth journey and the beautiful experience it can be. Providing women and birthing partners with up to date and evidence-based information promotes having knowledge as power and guides women to autonomy in their birth journey. I’m ready to empower and guide women to release their fears around birth through one positive birth journey at a time!

Limestone Coast Hypnobirthing guides and supports mamas + birthing support partners to a calm and positive birthing journey. Let’s start with the basics, the word Hypnobirthing: 'Hypno' represents Hypnosis, which is a beautiful form of deep relaxation that women (and birth partners!) can use to release fear during the antenatal stage and within your birth- and you can even incorporate it into your postpartum and daily life. The techniques taught won’t put you into trance or sleep, but you will feel a deep state of relaxation (all while being in a heightened sense of awareness) which will allow your body to ease fear while releasing your natural endorphins to positively feel more calm and relaxed during the birthing of your baby. Equipped with the Hypnobirthing Australia™ program self-hypnosis tools you are in control and able to come out of your self-hypnosis at any time you wish. And now the 'birthing' part of Hypnobirthing: The Positive Birth Program provides evidence based practical education and mindfulness techniques to support, guide and empower your birth journey! And the best bit- the classes provide you and your birth partner the tools and support to feel relaxed and calm in any turn your birth journey takes. Birthing your baby is a powerful and beautiful experience in your life, and Hypnobirthing Australia™ classes cover all varieties within natural and caesarean birth! Are you ready to feel choice and in control, empowerment and confidence to work with your body? Come with me and I will nurture, support and guide you to a positive birth journey!
