Simple, effective evidence-based techniques for a positive birth experience.


Hypnobirthing uses gentle, deep relaxation techniques (or self-hypnosis), as well as the latest edivence-based information on childbirth, so birth can be approached with confidence and trust.

By exploring ways to connect your mind to your intuitive body and working with your baby, the birth process is supported to occur as normally and naturally as possible, without distraction. This often minimises the chances of unnecessary interventions as a result.

We also provide a safe space for any fears or anxieties to be addressed – giving you the opportunity to discuss anything that may be coming up or holding you back.

Fear and anxiety create extra tension in your body and mind by releasing adrenaline and cortisol, which slow down or can sometimes even halt the birthing process.

We want to help minimise all the things that could potentially get in the way of you having the beautiful, positive birth experience you are hoping for and dream about.

You are built for birth

Hypnobirthing has become one of the most popular childbirth education methods used in Australia for a reason.

Courses are designed to prepare both the mother and her birthing partner for a calm, positive and empowered experience regardless of how things unfold on the day.

What do I need to bring to a hypnobirthing course?2021-03-25T03:25:04+00:00

We provide all your course materials. Please bring along your own water bottle and wear comfortable clothing. If you have a favourite tea mug you can bring that as well if you like, but some are provided.

Are there breaks during the course?2021-03-25T03:24:21+00:00

Yes, you will have morning and afternoon tea breaks (tea and snacks provided), as well as a one hour lunch break. There are local cafes, the beach and stunning nature walks along the cliff tops from Jan Juc to Bells Beach, to really enjoy the break.

Will I have a pain-free birth if I use hypnobirthing?2021-03-25T03:23:45+00:00

Pain (despite being complicated) is relevant to your perceptions and neurology. Hypnobirthing works with the idea that pain is increased by tension and fear during childbirth, constricting muscles and slowing down your progress. When a mother can condition herself to soften through intense sensations and release endorphins (or natural pain relief), her experience of pain may be lessened. Hypnobirthing does not promise no pain, but often hypnobirthing mothers describe the experience as one of working with their bodies through the waves and sensations, not as unbearable and horrific.

What if I don’t opt for a natural childbirth? Can I still use Hypnobirthing?2021-03-25T03:22:38+00:00

Definitely! There are times where a physiologically natural childbirth just isn’t feasible or a late change in circumstances requires medical intervention. The tools you learn in the hypnobirthing course will help you to remain calm, relaxed and still feeling prepared and empowered, no matter what course your labour takes.

Do I have to bring someone?2021-03-25T03:20:29+00:00

Absolutely not. If you would like to participate in the course on your own that is completely fine as well. For any practical partner work, the facilitator can step in as a partner.

Can my partner/birth partner/doula attend?2021-03-25T03:19:39+00:00

Yes, we encourage one birthing partner to attend the course with you so you can discuss your preferences together and practise working as a team for the big day. The role of the birth partner is an important one and we explore this more in the course.

Will I be ‘hypnotised under someone’s spell’? Will I be unconscious?2021-03-25T03:18:41+00:00

All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. You will learn ways to deepen your OWN state of consciousness and levels of relaxation, but you are easily able to interact with others at any time you wish to.

Do I still attend the hospital birth classes?2021-03-25T03:17:45+00:00

This is purely a personal choice. Hospital classes often have a more medical approach to childbirth, discussing different interventions and pharmaceutical pain relief, as well as the anatomy and physiology of birth. Questions regarding these topics can also be discussed during one of your regular appointments with your care providers. The Hypnobirthing course is very thorough and offers vast quantities of additional resources.

Just remember that all information is knowledge, and knowledge is power to make informed choice.

When is the best time to do my Hypnobirthing Australia course?2021-03-25T03:16:22+00:00

Generally when you are between 20-33 weeks pregnant. It is good to keep the information fresh in your mind, but you also want time to practise the techniques so you are best prepared. If you are outside that range don’t worry, you can still attend the course. (Contact us for a chat)

“We are really glad we were able to do this course with Talia! We didn’t have an opportunity like this with our first born. I felt ill prepared for the labour room and lacked some confidence in my partner’s ability to be a strong support. Talia was able to help me think about this birth differently and open up to the idea of it happening the way that I know it can if I can just allow myself to and allow my partner to take on the thinking brain. My partner feels they have more skills to support me and more empowered to talk with any caregivers.”

Emma & Ben

“The hypnobirthing course with Talia provided extensive information and insight which helped to remove the fear out of birthing. As a Birth Partner, I now feel I have the confidence to advocate for my wife and tools to play a supportive role during the birth. Talia was warm, knowledgeable, experienced and delivered the content in easy to understand terms. Would highly recommend this course!”


“We’re really glad we were able to fit in the Hypnobirthing course with Talia amongst the chaos of 2020. The content was super comprehensive and insightful and Talia delivered it in a way to help us both feel empowered and more confident about our journey ahead. Thoroughly recommend.”

Our approach

Pregnancy and Childbirth are natural examples of your mind and body working together to ‘do their thing.’ When we can approach birth as something very normal, we become empowered in our bodies, we become part of the process we were innately designed for.

Pregnant and new mothers have a right to good quality support. The transition to motherhood is huge – much bigger than systematic, itemised checklists or statistics.

A new mother already experiences an increase in physical demands – add in lack of sleep, more sitting, lots of carrying, hormone levels changing, dealing with nappies and leaky breasts- the last thing on her mind is herself! Her healing wound, her pelvic floor, preparing nourishing meals, her ability to ask for help or some time out – UNLESS she has guidance.

Village Birth Hypnobirthing courses are delivered by someone who understands normal biomechanical function in a woman’s changing body, how to work with it for optimal outcomes in both pregnancy and childbirth, and the importance of a positive mindset for positive experiences. Talia is also a trained birth doula and combines her knowledge of supporting the birth process in her delivery of the course.
