My name is Jana and I am a registered teacher and trained Hypnobirth Practitioner. I was drawn to become a Hypnobirthing educator following the birth of my beautiful son and seeing firsthand the difference this program can make during the birthing process with both my first and second births. I have a passion for health education and am so excited to combine both my love for babies and teaching to support expectant mothers have their own positive birth stories.
Giving birth is such a magical and momentous occasion in a woman's life. Every woman deserves the right to understand what their body is going through and how to work alongside it, in order to have an empowering birth experience. I strongly believe that knowledge is power and through the Hypnobirthing Australia™ program, you can learn about some incredible tools to help you achieve the birth you want and deserve.
My wish is for every Mum-to-be to go into labour well informed and ready for whatever comes their way. I look forward to meeting you and your birth partner and supporting you on this amazing journey!
I would like to acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of this land, the Gimuy- walubarra Yidi People and pay my respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
" As a first time mother, I was unsure where to turn when it came to birthing advice. Many women had told me that I did not need to go looking for information and I should just let the process happen.
However, a part of me did not feel right with going into this journey blind. I had begun the process of looking into where I could take part in a Hypnobirthing course when I stumbled across Jana.
It was almost as if the universe was handing me a sign that this was the right course of action for my family. Jana was able to organise a three-session course that fit into our busy lives without causing any stress or overwhelm. From the very moment we started, it felt so right.
Not only was Jana and the Positive Birth Program able to give me confidence in my own body and mind, but she also provided my husband with amazing tools to be empowered during each step of our labour and birth. He has learned how to not only support me during labour but also understand how to be my advocate during times when I may be unable to communicate at the hospital.
Before he was anxious that he would let me down as a birthing partner but thanks to all the different strategies and scripts he feels prepared, calm and excited.
The course really helped us to connect and bond over our last few weeks of what was already such a wonderful pregnancy. I could not recommend Jana more! I have never felt so prepared for such a beautiful unknown journey and more grateful for a course or its facilitator. "
" Stumbling across Jana was an absolute godsend! My husband and I did the private, in-home classes with Jana once a week for four weeks and the amount of in-depth, invaluable information we learned was incredible.
Jana is a kind hearted, wonderful human and you can tell she is so passionate about what she does. She made us feel so comfortable as if she was a friend we'd known for a long time. From day one we knew we were in good hands.
I have finished the course feeling confident, excited, educated and empowered and my husband is now at ease knowing he has all the knowledge, tools and skills to be an incredible support person and advocate.
My husband and I also work crazy schedules so to have this time each week was an incredible bonding experience and one we're so grateful for. We cannot recommend Jana enough and encourage everyone to do this course as well.
Jana, thank you again for all you have done for us xx "
" As my husband and I were living rural during our pregnancy we were so glad to access online hypnobirthing classes with Jana.
It was such smooth sailing joining our online zooms, Jana was personable and professional and made sure we had access too the resources we needed.
Everything was taught in a respectful manner, we were able to present questions and she guided us so well when navigating our birth preferences, which was hospital and minimal intervention.
Really the hard work is in the mindset work and meditations for myself, Jana helped me keep on top of my mantras and hypno tracks. It’s great to have that accountability. We protected ourselves from negative stories and other peoples unhelpful opinions leading up to birth and used the hypnobirthing tools (light touch, mediation tracks and trigger points) during birth.
That stuff is so important. I recommend Jana and hypnobirthing to all! "
Jana’s help and guidance through our pregnancy has helped us stay calm, educated and informed every step of the way!
We weren’t really familiar with hypno birthing to begin with, but after great recommendations from friends we booked with Jana which ended up being one of the best decisions we’ve made for this pregnancy.
We thought we had a fair idea of pregnancy and what to expect/ how to handle situations that may occur, but after doing this course we realised how much more there is to know and think about!
During each session Jana broke down and taught us about every stage of pregnancy. This was from staying healthy during early stages, what happens to your body during, and of course actual birth and going into labor.
Jana’s teachings helped us go into each midwifery appointment with confidence and knowledge of what was being discussed and offered to us at each stage. The course taught us about what happens to your body physically during pregnancy and what to expect. So when weird things did start happening, we already knew if something was normal or not!
We learnt so many different techniques to use for birth preparation that we would’ve otherwise had no idea about. We have so many tools now to use for natural pain relief during labor, and how to create a peaceful, relaxing environment for birth.
Another thing we loved about the course was that we were taught how Jack (Dad) could be a good support person, and what he can do during pregnancy and labor. Having this guidance for Jack has helped immensely, and means we are going into labor with a clear idea of his role, and how he will be supporting us both throughout labor.
The most helpful thing that Jana has taught us is that we are in control of our birth and labor. Although things may not go to plan, Jana has taught us that we always have options, and what these options are. Being fully informed means we are educated on what may be offered to us as interventions- preventing us from being blindsided and making uninformed decisions on the spot.
This course was invaluable and Jana’s knowledge has really helped take out any fear we had around birth. She’s helped to remind us what a beautiful, enjoyable journey pregnancy should be!
Highly, highly recommend for any expecting parents!
