Hypnobirthing Twins is TOTALLY a thing!

In 2017, I used my knowledge and skills as a Hypnobirthing Australia™ & Hypnobubs® Childbirth Educator to birth my twin babies. My birth was AH-MAZING, it truly was, so amazing that I’m still on a high (and I don’t think I’m coming down any time soon).

If your ‘Woo Meter’ is pinging, I urge you not to be put off by the ‘hypno’ part of hypnobirthing. The program I teach is down-to-earth, evidence-based, current, and relevant…even to mamas birthing twins.

One-On-One twin specific consult with me

Twin birth is birth. There’s a whole lot of twin birth preparation that is like singleton birth preparation, but…then there’s the stuff not covered that is specific to carrying and birthing twins. That’s where I come in! I recommend completing the online Hypnobubs® childbirth preparation program (or a face-to-face class with your nearest practitioner) and then UPGRADING to a one-on-one consult with me.

Some of the things we could cover in the one-on-one consult are:

  • clarify any elements of the online training;
  • answer any additional questions you may have;
  • talk about your specific options for twin birth;
  • work on your twin birth preferences;
  • develop strategies to work towards your positive twin birth;
  • discuss how to navigate the policies and protocols you have been presented;
  • and so much more!

I will work with you to ensure that you are feeling positive, informed, and confident in the lead up to your twin birth.
