Positive Births –

For a More
Calm, Confident &
Positive Birth

Welcome to Positive Births

Hypnobirthing, Relaxation and Mindfulness for a more calm, confident and positive birth experience.

In person and online classes.

This hypnobirthing program especially designed for Kiwi (NZ) parents-to-be teaches deep relaxation, visualisations, affirmations, mindfulness and special breathing techniques to achieve a confident, calm, peaceful birth and a positive birthing experience for both you and your baby.

The Positive Births Hypnobirthing  program is a practical course that focuses on preparing parents for a more positive birth regardless of the set of circumstances they face on their journey. Therefore whether it be a totally natural birth or a birth with intervention the skills will be useful and relevant.

In these classes you will learn proven techniques in a well-thought-out program of deep relaxation, visualisation, mindfulness and self-hypnosis. Hypnobirthing encourages a calm, peaceful and natural pregnancy, birth and bonding experience for families.

How we give birth does matter. Not just for the day itself, but for the journey ahead. Having a positive and empowering start to your journey can have a lifelong impact on both mother and baby. 



What is a Positive Birth?

Having a positive birth experience does not necessarily mean it was exactly as you imagined, or planned. It may involve twists, turns and a few challenges along the way.

But a positive birth experience is one where you have the skills to work with it and through it. An experience where you feel calm and confident. A birth free of fear. A birth where you and your partner feel empowered to make the right choices for you and baby. A birth that you can look back on and know that you did the best that you knew how to at the time.

FrequentlyAsked Questions



“Helen’s genuine and warm aura underpins everything she teaches which makes the whole experience easy and enjoyable to connect with – it feels safe and comfortable, which can be hard to achieve when the topic could be viewed as quite a ‘scary’ one.”
