Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Hi, and welcome! My name is Sam and I'm a certified Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner and Childbirth Educator (HPCE) located in Warner, North Brisbane . I work as a Clinical Nurse and have a background in Psychology. I have vast experience in adult mental health and have worked as part of specialised peri-natal mental health team.
I experienced a traumatic birth with my first child in 2011, which resulted in an emergency caesarean. After this experience I realised the importance of parents being validated, respected, informed and supported during the birth and the postpartum period. There just had to be a better way to birth a baby!!
This led me to discover Hypnobirthing in 2013, where I trained to become a Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner. I have since used the hypnobirthing techniques I teach during the birth of my son in 2014, a successful VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean)!
I strongly believe that every woman deserves to have a positive, empowering birth, whichever turn their birthing takes. By learning and embracing Hypnobirthing, mothers and birth partners are equipped with the tools and techniques to make this a reality. I have had 2 very different birth experiences so I know what I needed to have a positive birth, and hopefully am able to use my experiences to help mothers.
Whether this is your first or fifth birth, a VBAC, had a previous traumatic birth or you are scared about giving birth, our Hypnobirthing Australia program can help YOU! I would love to help you on your journey towards having the best birth possible!
