Osteo, Massage, Yoga Therapy and Hypnobirthing

Hypnobirthing with Melanie Mackintosh

The Hypnobirthing Australia™ Positive Birth Program is a unique childbirth education course designed for parents who are preparing for a calm, natural birth and are willing to calmly meet whatever turn their birthing takes. By enrolling in the Positive Birth Program, parents actively take another step closer to giving their baby the best birth possible with the circumstances that they have on the day.

The Positive Birth Program has four important pillars: 1) knowledge 2) tools to stay calm 3) support for the partner & caregivers 4) preparation for both mind and body.

  • Mind/body connection and preparation
  • Breathing techniques
  • Touch (massage and hypnotic anchors)
  • Self-hypnosis / Relaxation techniques
  • Conditioning through music, voice, tracks, smell, touch
  • Movement, upright positioning
  • Massage and acupressure
  • Creating an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and ‘letting go’ during labour and birth
  • Bonding with baby
  • Understanding the birth process
  • Decision making tools
  • Tools and knowledge for the birth partner

Program Options

The Hypnobirthing Australia™ Positive Birth Program is a 12-hour course run over two or three days. A short, six-hour program is available as a refresher for parents who have completed Hypnobirthing courses in the past or for those who are very short of time if baby’s birth is imminent. Please contact Melanie if you require the shortened program.

Program Cost

$525 per couple, per course.

Included in your investment is a comprehensive folio of resources used during the course, and a complete suite of online resources provided through Hypnobirthing Australia. This includes birth preparation resources and practice relaxation scripts and birth videos.

Supporting Neurological Wellbeing with Yoga Therapy

What is Yoga Therapy all about?

Yoga Therapy is the path towards finding harmony and wellness on an individual level.

When you invest in a Yoga Therapy program we will work together over 3 sessions with a program designed just for you. This will include pre-session discussions and support throughout the program.

I will teach you the tools to help you find ease, peace and healing, and show you how you can take control and incorporate these tools into your daily life.

Yoga Therapy is not a yoga class. You do not need to be fit or flexible, or even own a yoga mat, to get the benefits of a yoga therapy program.

Together we will explore your needs and create a therapeutic program, based on ancient practices blended with modern science, to support positive change.
