About me

Hypnobirthing, what is it?

Don't be fooled by the name, hypnobirthing is not all about hypnosis - in fact it is only a small portion of this amazing program. The hypnosis we do teach is self hypnosis. You will learn how to relax and allow birth to happen. There are definitely no pendulums and you won't run around the birth room like a chicken

Our Positive Birth Program parents unapologetically, positively anticipate a good birth experience and are willing to take ownership of it. The results are far reaching, because when we have an empowering birth experience, this sets us up well for empowered and positive parenting. This class isn't like any others on offer due to the unique way that Nic brings it all together with her extensive experience as a midwife. 

Hypnobirthing Australia™ classes with me will provide you and your birth partner the tools to ensure that you are prepared to meet whatever turn your birthing may take - you won't feel locked into the idea of a birth plan but you will be able to navigate anything that happens.

My Story

Hi, I'm Nic, I am the owner of Mind, Bump & Birth. I am lucky enough to be educating women in Darwin about positive birth. I am a Multi-Award winning Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner. 

When I was studying Midwifery I was lucky enough to see a few Hypnobirths. The women looked calm, serene and empowered. They loved their births, and looked like given the chance they would yell their birth stories from the rooftops! 

When I fell pregnant I knew that I wanted to have a positive birth experience and possibly have the chance to have a beautiful, calm birth. So I completed a Hypnobirthing course and had the most amazing birth experience, you can read about it here.

I was so passionate about helping other mums have an amazing experience like mine that I went on to study to become a Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner so that I could share my knowledge and more women could experience the sheer joy that birthing can be.

My absolute passion in life is helping women to make informed decisions with the circumstances they are given during birth, so that they too can have a positive and empowering birth - no matter what that looks like.

I was lucky enough to experience another amazing Hypnobirth with the birth of my second child. You can read that  birth story here.
