Preparing for your POSITIVE BIRTH with Hypnobirthing techniques has never been easier!


Hi, I’m Steph

Mum, wife, midwife, passionate birth educator & founder of the Positive Birth Initiative.

My journey as a birth educator was sparked by a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of expecting parents. Witnessing high levels of unnecessary intervention and the increasing prevalence of birth trauma, I knew something had to change.

With almost nearly 30 years of clinical midwifery experience, and as a Hypnobirthing Australia practitioner and Optimal Maternal Positioning educator, I have seen first hand the difference that good birth preparation can make.

With an unwavering passion, I am now on a mission to share everything that I have learned about birth, and empower as many parents as possible so they can have an amazing birthing experience.

What my clients say

Frequently asked questions

Q: How do I access the course?

A: The course is secured on an online learning platform so you can log into the course anytime using any internet enabled device (phone, tablet, computer etc) and take back up where you left off. You can watch the lessons over again if you like.

You can login to the online learning platform as many times as you need. It’s one login, but no restrictions on devices or anything.
You also have access to an app, so you can easily access the content on your mobile device.

Q: How long do I get access to the course?

A: You have full access to the videos, mp3s, downloads and resources from the hypnobubs™ online learning platform for 12 months following your enrolment. You can save all of the pdfs, ebooks and mp3s to your computer for future access beyond this period, however please note that there isn’t a way to save the videos.

Q: When is the best time for my private session?

A: It is ideal to do the private session once you have completed the online section of the course. But this can be arranged whenever you feel you need it.

Q: When is the best time to start the course?

A: The ideal time to start the course is between 20-30 weeks of pregnancy. This gives you ample time to practice the techniques leading up to birth.  BUT anytime is possible.

Q: Can my my birth partner do it with me?

A: Yes. The course is structured in such a way that the birth partner is encouraged to attend as they will learn how to best support and advocate for you during your pregnancy and birth. We even have a special module dedicated to the ‘Birth Partners Role’ and a ‘Birth Rehearsal’ practical exercise so you can practice the techniques together!

Q: Is the course suitable as a Hypnobirthing refresher course?

A: Yes indeed! In fact, we regularly receive this enquiry from parents who have previously attended Hypnobirthing classes and we suggest this very option. 

Q: Do I receive any other support?

A: Yes indeed! You will be invited to join me in my private Facebook community – The Positive Birth Hub.
