Below are a handful of reviews from couples who attended the Happy Birth Day Hypnobirthing AustraliaTM Classes.
Heading into the late stages of the second-trimester I was feeling anxious & overwhelmed towards pregnancy, birth & beyond resulting from a lot of ‘horror’ stories being constantly thrown in my direction.
My husband & I asked Rachel to guide us through the Hypnobirthing Australia course and things dramatically changed as soon as our first class was completed. Rachel replaced my anxiety with knowledge and confidence and I found my feelings of being overwhelmed very soon turned to excitement in meeting our baby and the next stage of life my husband and I were about to embark on together.
Hypnobirthing also changed my husband’s perception of being a bystander in the entire process to being the one person I couldn’t do without.
As a nurse, Rachel is extremely knowledgeable and went out of her way to thoroughly answer all of our questions while making the process entertaining with her fantastically witty sense of humour and practicality.
I very highly recommend this course and particularly Rachel as a teacher whom I cannot thank enough – it’s life changing stuff!
What an incredible experience! I couldn’t recommend this course highly enough! Rachel made it such a personal experience for my partner and I; her wealth of knowledge has not only bought immense ease to our pregnancy as first time parents, but also taught us to trust the human body & just what it is capable of. Definitely feeling as prepared as we could be for our newest adventure. Thanks again Rachel, we are beyond excited to put it all into practise & meet our baby!
"I couldn’t recommend this anymore!! I was scared and nervous but after attending Rachel’s classes I’m feeling much more confident for birth now!"
"We did Hypnobirthing with Rachel leading up to the birth of our son Hugo. Rachel is a calm, down to earth and easy going teacher who is very knowledgeable when it comes to birth, the lead up to and the medical profession in general. We would really look forward to each class. I spent the last few weeks before he was born meditating and truly taking the time out to enjoy my pregnancy.
It sounds cliche but expect the unexpected when it comes to the birth. The way I have described it to friends and family is like Alice going down the rabbit hole. We truly believe if we didn't have our Hypnobirthing techniques in our back pocket it would have been a traumatic experience. I was induced, had an episiotomy and our son had shoulder dystocia on the way out. None of that is what we were planning for (certainly not the latter) however we approached each fork in the road calmly and made our decisions as they came up. Considering the labour and birth I wouldn't even say I had a recovery time. In the day or two after I felt a little pressure around my episiotomy wound but certainly no pain. I couldn't believe it!
Thank you Rachel, you made something that could have easily been traumatic much easier to cope with."
