Hypnobirthing Australia ™ Positive Birth Program
I absolutely loved them (the hypnosis and relaxation scripts) as did my partner! I found myself wanting to re do them as it was
such an incredible experience! It really educated both my partner and myself on our options and that birth doesn’t have to be a traumatic experience that just happens TO you! It can be a magical, transformative experience you can actually enjoy!
I love that you get the resources after to continue your practice as well. I think it was incredible for my partner as it really defined his role in the birthing experience and gave him the tools to support me and prepped him on how best to handle hospital staff, ask questions and ensure we are getting the best care possible!
Learning the techniques made me feel extremely confident in my ability to birth my bub naturally and even made me beyond excited!
I will recommend this course to absolutely any mumma to be I can!
Prior to enrolling in this hypnobirthing course I felt extremely scared, uneasy and unsure about what to expect during child birth. I felt as though I was very unprepared and just felt as though every birth experience shared was always negative and relating to how bad the pain was. However, after completing the hypnobirthing course my outlook on childbirth has changed significantly. The course went into great detail about the positive aspects of child birth and how it can be a magical and empowering experience, rather than a traumatic one. My eyes were opened up to the rights we have during child birth and that we can trust our doctors and/or midwives, however, we can also ask questions to ensure our best interests are at stake. We were taught different tools and techniques that can be used to create a calm and safe birth environment and ways to support labour if it begins to slow down. We also learnt about different ways to help get bub into a good position for birth, which for me was super beneficial. Overall, the class was very informative and positive and I actually feel excited for birth now. I feel much more prepared and I have so many tools and resources to help support my positive birth experience. Another great aspect of the class was the information regarding to not becoming worked up if your birth plan doesn’t work out the way you had envisioned. We were provided with techniques and strategies to help us remain calm if intervention is required or if things take a different turn. I am extremely grateful that my friend referred me to this course and I am so pleased I enrolled. I can’t recommend hypnobirthing with Georgie at Tree of Life highly enough! If you wish to feel more calm and prepared for your birth than hypnobirthing is definitely the course for you!
The Hypnobirthing Australia ™ course is a method of preparing the mind and body for a positive and calm birth no matter how the birth unfolds.
This program provides the birthing woman and her partner the knowledge and tools to feel empowered and excited, not fearful and anxious about their birthing day. You only get one chance to birth your baby with ease and comfort and with the right science-based and evidenced-based knowledge; you can use the techniques we teach to ensure a smoother passage for both mother and baby.
The course also focuses on the partners in having a truly supportive role – they play such a big part in the preparations for their birthing day, feeling connected and an integral part of the process.
I’ve made a decision to focus on smaller classes. This way, participants feel a sense of connection in a safe space to share insights and ask the questions they really need answers on.
I’m capping my classes at 4 couples…so best you book in early!
I especially find a great deal of enjoyment in holding private Hypnobirthing classes in the comfort of my client’s homes – this way we can create a very special bond and all of your questions can be answered. I love to include a lot more anecdotes from my years of being a Doula and Childbirth Educator also – my wealth of experience will help in supporting you in your birth journey.
I can’t wait to share this work with you all and be your guide through such an important moment of your lives!

We just finished our Hypnobirthing Positive Birthing course with the lovely, Georgie. Georgie was so supportive and accommodating, opening up her home to us and creating a beautiful serene space.
Not only was the course absolutely incredible (& should be essential for all first time parents!), Georgie made us feel relaxed and reassured with her wealth of knowledge and experience.
Would highly recommend doing this course with Georgie or using any of the birthing services she has to offer. Thankyou Georgie, we cant wait to birth our baby!
If you can't make it to a scheduled class,
we offer many ways for you to reap the benefits of a Positive birth!
Private Sessions in your own home or mine
You will receive the Positive Birth Program delivered in the comfort of your own home or mine with just you and your birth partner. This is the most flexible, intimate and private option. We can work together to find the perfect dates and times to suit.
Cost includes travel to your home within Sydney Metro area as well as all the course resources and your own private birth coach!
It is recommended that you attend an in-person class, however if you are unable to make this work the online course is a fantastic option. You and your birth partner can watch the pre-recorded lessons in the comfort of your own home, in your own time. It is recommended you book a 90-minute Private Session Upgrade with me to compliment this.
Private Session 90 min upgrade $150
Private Session 3 hr upgrade $300
90 Minute or 3hr Private Session
An optional extra for anyone who has completed an in-person or online course. I’ll come to your home and tailor the session on areas you wish to discuss in further detail to help achieve your positive birth! It’s recommended that you book this option through me directly.
Online Course + 90-Minute or 3 hour Private Session is a great way to get the best of both worlds!
More information on the Positive Birth Program
The Hypnobirthing Australia ™ course is a method of preparing the mind and body for a positive and calm birth no matter how the birth unfolds. It gives the birthing woman and her partner the knowledge and tools to feel empowered and excited, not fearful and anxious about their birthing day.
You only get one chance to birth your baby with ease and comfort and with the right science-based and evidenced-based knowledge; you can use the techniques we teach to ensure a smoother passage for both mother and baby. The course also focuses on the partners in having a truly supportive role – they play such a big part in the preparations for their birthing day, feeling connected and an integral part of the process.
The Positive Birth Program is not all about ‘self-hypnosis’…in fact, it’s just one of the many tools that we utilise to prepare and experience a positive and empowered birth. And you won’t leave the training feeling like well that was great, we have learnt so much but what now? How do we put it all together? Each couple is given a voucher in order to download the tracks needed in addition to a folio of resources that includes all the main points, the scripts, the practical exercises and a routine to practice for up to 36 weeks and then another for the time you are about to meet your little one! Everything you need is in one place and is yours to keep!
As a Doula who has been supporting women and their partners over the span of the past 9 years (and over 90 births in addition to my own), I have seen what a difference the Hypnobirthing Australia TM course has made for those who have chosen to prepare for their birth in this way. The women are calm, focused and capable and many times, by the time we arrive at the birthing location if moving from home, they are ready to breathe their babies out. Many times they are so calm, many midwives don’t believe just how far along they are. I believe in this work so much…it encompasses everything you need for a truly POSITIVE BIRTH.
There is a quote by Barbara Katz Rothman that really sums up the reason I love this work so much - ‘Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers – strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.’ No better way to sign off really…I look forward to sharing in your journey x
