Hypnobirthing Australia™ Practitioner & Birth Doula

My practical childbirth education classes help you approach birth with a positive and confident mindset. You’ll discover natural relaxation tools and techniques to increase calm and comfort during labour and birth. 

It can be natural to feel some uncertainty, anxiety or even fear about giving birth.

  But did you know it’s also possible to feel excited, positive, and confident about giving birth? 

 If you want to have a conscious birth, one where you feel empowered as a woman, feel supported by your partner, able to communicate confidently to your care providers, and where you feel peaceful about the birthing journey no matter which path it takes—hypnobirthing is for you.

  If you want to feel connected to your body, full of positive thoughts and energy, relaxed in your body and mind, with skills to support you for life—hypnobirthing is for you.

Hi there!

I’m Melissa Ayling; an award-winning Certified Hypnobirthing Australia™ practitioner, pregnancy retreat leader and birth doula.

Together with Australia’s most popular childbirth education program, Hypnobirthing Australia™, I help women and their birth partners to feel confident, discover coping tools and positivley prepare themselves for their best birth possible. 

I believe no matter what path the birth journey takes—whether hospital, home birth, road side (that’s me!), or caesarean—with the right education and support you will enjoy a positive birth experience.

The information and knowledge Mel shared was amazing and made me feel so open, calm and relaxed for a gentle birth. As someone that was quiet nervous about the actual birth, I think hypnobirthing took away my fears and helped me see how empowering birth is and i’m so grateful, I loved my birth and I think Mel had a huge part to play in helping me find my confidence. To anyone wondering about their husbands/partners doing the classes, my husband LOVED them as well and it helped him understand the kind of birth I wanted and made him the most supportive partner using all our hypnobirthing tools and tips.
