Hi Kate Sorry this has taken so long to get to you! Alexis is 12 weeks old now and we are all really well. We had a great Christmas with Mitch’s family coming over from Sydney-very busy!

Hypnobirthing information session Adelaide

Breastfeeding newborn

Breastfeeding newborn Your newborn baby instinctively knows how to breastfeed.Sometimes those instincts are inhibited when a baby is born before his due date or when mothers have required medication during labour.

Normal birth

Normal birth Why does your birth have an impact on breastfeeding? When a mother labours naturally, her body releases a hormone called oxytocin, its the same hormone which is released during sex.That feels good doesn’t it?YES, so when a mother goes into labour spontaneously, that same hormone is released. That natural oxytocin release makes the uterus tighten and these “tightenings” become more frequent as labour progresses.These tightenings are the uterine muscles working hard to bring the baby through the birth path. As...

Hypnobirthing story

Once I announced my pregnancy, I received a lot of advice about pregnancy and child birth. Some of the advice was welcome, and some of it wasn’t.

One is the traditional stereotype where women are screaming in hospital beds swearing at their...
