Whole Heart Hypnobirthing

Tell us about yourself

Hello, my name is Erin.

I am a Certified Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner, Clinical Nurse, Yoga Instructor and most importantly, mother to my beautiful daughter.

Being pregnant and surrounded by countless negative attitudes towards birth, I knew I wanted something different to the stories I had heard.  I knew above everything, that I wanted to give my baby a calm and positive start in life.  And so, I found Hypnobirthing Australia.  After an incredibly empowered birth, I knew in my heart, that it was my mission to support other women to trust in their body and their baby to achieve their own positive birth.  I am grateful everyday to support women and support partners on their birthing journey.

What is Hypnobirthing and how can it help me?

When I mention the word Hypnobirthing, I can usually see the look of confusion on people’s faces! So, what is it and how can it help us in labour and birth?

The ‘Hypno’ part of Hypnobirthing, refers to the self-hypnosis that we use for fear release and pain relief. This is just one of the many tools that we utilise.

The Hypnobirthing Australia Positive Birth Program focuses on taking the fear out of birth and empowering women and their birth partners to have the type of birth THEY want.

This is just a snippet of what you can expect from our course

  • Self-hypnosis for pain and fear release
  • Physiology of birth and understanding the role that our incredible hormones play
  • Induction and pain relief options
  • Acupressure
  • Affirmations and birth tracks
  • Your rights during birth
  • Informed decision making
  • Change of circumstances

Women intuitively know how to birth and it is only recently that it has become a medical event. The
Hypnobirthing Australia program supports women to trust in their bodies and harness the power that it holds.

Vedic Meditation

Tell us about yourself

Natalie Martinot is a Vedic Meditation teacher, physiotherapist, clinical pilates instructor, yoga teacher, integrative health coach and the mother of three beautiful children with a huge passion for holistic health and the complementary blending of both western and eastern techniques and philosophies to create ultimate wellness.

Natalie teaches private and small group Vedic Meditation classes as she feels it is the one tool we cannot live without when navigating the modern world we live in today. By giving the nervous system a deep state of rest through this simple effortless meditation technique we dissolve accumulated stress, tension and fatigue which ultimately leads to a calmer, happier more stabilised state of being.

What is Vedic Meditation

Supported by scientific research and based on an ancient body of knowledge, Vedic Meditation is a powerful yet simple mental technique which absolutely anyone can learn. Through the use of a personalised mantra to draw the mind naturally inward one goes beyond thinking into a state of ‘being’ or stillness.

It is perfect for the demands of our busy modern lives as it de-excites our nervous system and enables us to achieve a deep state of rest dissolving accumulated stress, tension and fatigue.

Experiencing this state on a regular basis, meditators quickly become happier, more present and aware, less reactive, calmer, more adaptable, more creative, more productive, and have increased energy and vibrant health.

Alma Healing

Website: Alma Healing

Tell us about yourself

My name is Claudia, founder of Alma Healing.

I am a certified Facial Emotional Therapy (FET) therapist, Reiki Master, and Advanced Chakra healer.

After experiencing a successful career full of achievements but with high levels of stress, I felt I wasn’t living my life’s purpose. Thanks to a health issue I experienced the benefits of Energy Healing and my life simply changed for good. I found the hidden talent of being a conduit to help others to connect with their soul.

When I received my first Facial Emotional Therapy treatment, negative emotions were released, and my body was reinvigorated with a beautiful energy. I felt liberated and more connected with my heart than ever. I decided to create a practice to offer clients the experience of letting go of what doesn’t serve them anymore, by creating a space to connect with their souls and listen to their inner wisdom.

What is Facial Emotional Therapy (FET)

Working directly on the face, head and neck through sensitive touch and soothing strokes over significant energy points relating to various systems of your body, FET is a gentle non-invasive treatment designed specifically to make the body experience a sense of deep and profound relaxation helping to clear stress levels, anxiety, anger, fear, burnout, and emotional blockages. After a FET treatment, you will feel re-energised and refreshed making you look younger.
