Microbirth documentary Have you asked yourself , why are so many children these days suffering allergies to foods which many years ago were unknown? Well, researchers throughout the world are asking the same questions and investigating what we can do to slow down this epidemic of allergies etc. One of the theories examines a child’s micro biome and proposes that the mode of  birth may well be responsible for  the child’s long term health.

Obstetricians and Hypnobirthing

Obstetricians and Hypnobirthing , can they mix? While many of the mums who call me about Hypnobirthing are hesitant about how it will be perceived by their obstetricians , I can honestly say that there is nothing hippyish and unusual about hypnobirthing which should cause obstetricians to roll their eyes! Far from being something weird and freaky, it basically promotes birth as normal, and isn’t that what you would expect from your obstetrician, someone who respects that your body has grown this baby for 9 months so it must know how to...

Natural birth

Natural birth is the term used when mums and dads don’t want to have any drugs to assist during the labour process But how do you achieve a natural birth? Some mothers will investigate the options available to them as calm birth ,active birthing , hypnobirthing etc etc Having delivered antenatal classes in a hospital environment , what I now experience as a hypnobirthing instructor is that hypnobirthing , far from being a hippy thing, is the most natural thing in the world.  It empower and informs both parents. When I deliver a...

Antenatal classes in Adelaide are available at most hospitals offering midwifery care. My antenatal classes are available for mums and dads who would like additional knowledge to feel more prepared for a positive instinctual birth.Many of the choices parents will make in labour will depend on the parents preparation for birth. Many mums tell me after they’ve attended antenatal classes that they would prefer to avoid the drugs they’ve learnt about. While that’s very encouraging I find that they haven’t always been given...
