"When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change."
All Heart HypnoBirthing® is based in Greenwood in the Northern Suburbs of Perth, Western Australia. It's run by myself, Rebecca Graham, a certified HypnoBirthing® practitioner.
I fell pregnant in 2011. I was 27 years old and had been working as a Midwife for 5 years. This was a dream come true. Becoming a Mum was something I had always wanted and was so excited about. However, my Midwife/Nurse brain would often be in overdrive - analysing, thinking and worrying. This all contributed to feelings of fear and nervousness about the birth.
I gained an insight into how so many women must feel as they approach childbirth - scared and nervous. For me it wasn't a case of 'fear of the unknown'. It was a fear of everything I did know, everything I'd seen and everything I knew about how birth can be medicalised and interfered with. I knew I didn't want to approach my birth with this mindset and that I had to do something about it!
HypnoBirthing® for me - enabled my mind to clear out the extra thoughts and worries that I had been consumed with. When I finished the course it felt like a giant weight had been lifted. I could step back and really approach my own birth with a sense of ease and simplicity, rather than worry and nerves!
The power of this program is its ability to completely change your focus. Instead of worrying about everything that could go wrong, I believed that my mind and body possessed the tools for a natural birth. I also gained the confidence to know that if it didn't all go to plan, I would be able to calmly navigate my way through it.
In 2018 I decided to become a HypnoBirthing® instructor.
I want to spread the word about positive birth and to follow my passion for providing care and education for expectant mothers and couples.
I want to be able to provide this course to other women who may be feeling exactly the same as I did - nervous and fearful. I want to provide them with knowledge and techniques that can help them to shift their focus, so that they can clear their own minds of any worries or fears.
The memory of your birth stays with you for the rest of your life. I truly believe all women deserve to experience a positive birth and I believe couples benefit greatly by arming themselves with the tools and mindset to achieve this. I want to enable women to trust in their bodies and in the birthing process.
Having used HypnoBirthing® myself and having been involved in the birthing process as a trained professional, I believe I can combine my knowledge and experience to deliver all that HypnoBirthing® has to offer.
